Something that could help (and has for me on several assorted drives) - park a blank disk in the drive when not actually recording. Haven't had a drive hang since trying this method - drives that WILL invariably hang without the blank.

What's nice is even computer drives see the blank and don't get too worked up trying to read anything, so it's pretty transparent and won't slow ya down from other things.
Thanks NOSTRADIMWIT! Yeah, I do have that problem with the drive door. I'll try this for sure!!
