Multiple Clone Attempts Failed

I currently am running MAC OS X Tiger, with an external Iomega FW/USB2.0 drive serving as my backup destination. In preparation for installing Leopard, I tried to clone my current HD to the Iomega. This failed on 5 separate occassions, each for different reasons. The most recent log came back with a "device not configured" error. It seems that each subsequent attempt fails earlier in the process. The first time it had backed up 10GB. this last time, less than 1GB.

The big problem now is my Iomega drive will not stay mounted for any kind of backup on any program. This includes a basic "home folder" backup from Apple's Backup program. The Iomega drive unmounts in the middle of the backup. I need to unplug the drive and replug it in order for the OS to detect it. I never had this problem until I yesterday when the first clone attempt failed.

Anybody with any ideas on what I'm missing here, and how I can troubleshoot this?
