Cover melts off, gets messed up if plugged into a PC

Summary: Well it's pretty and functional for the most part. Unfortunately the glue melts every time I use the hard drive so that the blue cover falls off, so I have to keep a hair tie around it to keep it in place. It dries shut again when it cools. That isn't such a big deal, but a weird defect.
Summary: This is my first hard drive. I really don't know if it is working AND, should my computer crash, how to I use it to put things in my new computer? I haven't a clue if I really am backing things up or not and if I am, then what?
Summary: The Iomega eGo 500 looks great and is light weight. It is so light weight I foolishly thought I could carry this to and from work. I confess that it did drop from a chair to the carpeted floor once, which apparently jarred the mechanical parts enough to stop all functionality.
Summary: This drive works fine except using the usb connectors. Then it does require that the enclosed double usb cable be used to provide enough power. Otherwise, it beeps to let you know it does not have enough power.
Summary: At first i was happy with this hard drive. It was conveniently light, loved the sleek red, it started out super quiet and did not heat up. This love at first slowly diminished when the red paint started chipping off in the first two months.
Summary: Everything about this drive would be perfect, were it not for the metal "face" plate that detaches from the drive the moment it heats up. I understand the "drop guard" theory behind a cushy surface surrounding the drive, but it seems very counterintuitive when the plate comes off completely.
Summary: As advertised, the Iomega drive is light, thin, and ready to go straight from the box. Time machine runs perfectly... first try. The drive ships with three cables... it's usb or firewire powered... it daisy chains. BUT... unless you're looking for your lost car keys in a dark room... this drive...
Summary: This unit is much larger (thicker) than any other Iomega 2.5", but the drive inside is the same 9.5mm Seagate 5400.6. The 'drop guard' inside of this consist of two silicone rails which support the board that hosts the drive.
