Here's the answer, folks:

Some drives are hard-wired by the manufacturer to "go to sleep" after a period of inactivity. You can check with the manufacturer about how to defeat this, but if its not possible, it's not possible and you're stuck with it.

And yes, the OP should reformat that drive to HFS to work best with the Mac (which is not capitalised btw!). Might solve the problem right there.
