      Okay back from the drive..

      My 7" LCD screen was frozen, but it worked.

      My xbox with the WD 160gig HD, didn't even hiccup. My xbox booted up fine, and i was able to play my divx files as if it was normal.

      ThoughtS?

          No not at all. My WD has been fine in 0 degree F weather, never a problem at all. Most cold harddrive problems are with Maxtors.

            My 120 gb IBM drive will boot up at 0 degrees or higher, however at temps below 0 it generates a disk error and I have to wait about 2 minutes, reset the computer, and it boots up fine.

              Last week when we had about -15C to -20C All i hd no porblem with the harddisk (an 12G IBM 2,5" from a laptop). But the soundcard on the M10000 board went crazy!!... I didnt hear the music for the first 15min just a lot of distortion.

              But after 15min all work as it should again.


              I havent had any problem at all with my lilliput in cold wether.

              Except the touchscreen that never have worked, not even when i got the screen.
