"Device not ready" error at random


Recommended Posts

All my downloads live on an external drive that's used for nothing else, and over the last month or so torrents have started randomly stopping with a "Device not ready" error. It only ever affects a few at a time, it's not always the same torrents, sometimes it'll run for days with no issue, and sometimes they'll fail every few minutes. I would assume that if the device temporarily became unavailable all of them would produce the error seeing as they're all on the same drive, so I'm at a loss! Restarting them fixes the problem, but I would like to stop it happening in the first place - if it's ones I'm seeding it's not too bad, just a minor inconvenience to anyone connected to me, but when it's stuff I'm downloading it's a pain to realise it's been sat idle for hours...

(All settings at default, drive utilisation is fairly low.)

Edit: it happened again, screenshot attached.
