    Why does my HD stops???

    Okay, here's my setup.

    EPIA M-1000
    WD 60GB HD 3.5"
    Pioneer slot-loading 6x DVD
    Destinator GPS mouse
    Xenarc 7" touchscreen
    250 watt PSU from a micro-ATX case
    400 watt inverter.

    From time to time (not always) I would have winamp5 on a song and it would freeze, the HD had stopped spinning. I had to wiggle the Power Plug on the HD and it'll start spinning again and continue the music. What would be the cause of it? At first I though it's because the power cord is not long enough, so I extend it to the HD.

    BTW, the motherboard, PSU, and HD are all in my little RAV4 Glovebox compartment.

    Have you tried using another power plug, if one is available from the power supply? If so, I would start looking at the drive's power receptacle as a potential problem child.
