I didn't think thomsons came in 1.3s, is there a possibility that someone has sold you one with their crapped out thomson inside?
You could make sure that the connections are firmly in the back of the drive. Also try testing for a while with a couple of games. If you need a new drive then the buy/sell forums here or maybe ebay are your best bets.
It could well be a problem also with your M$ dash software. , in which case a modchip might be your best option, then you could get slayers or such and restor the m$ dash
