Default Glyph Firewire disconnects Western JB800 randomly

Hi,
Our Glyph 1U Firewire enclosure disconnects the Western Digital JB800 80GB hard drive randomly.
Unit comes with two IBM drives installed. Western is installed in an identical enclosure (storcase)
I also use some Seagate drives and another IBM, no problems with them.

Both Os 9.2.2 and 10.2.8 has same problem. It says " one of your fw drives stopped resp... try undoing what you did..." thing. Switching the power off/on sometimes helps, sometimes not. I have to reset G4.

I had some problems before with the same drive (damaged files) and then reformat it within Os X with drive setup utility, there seemed to be no problems left.

I'm also going to write to Glyph but I'd like to post here before for a quicker response.

Quick things to check:

1. Were all drives formatted in the same manner? Using OS X Disk Utility?

2. Do all drives have their master/slave jumpers set the same? For FW enclosures, they should be set to Master or Single.
