Maby someone overhere can answer this question:

I got an external disk(an Iomega EHD), who i use for editing(sometimes). This are the best Disk i ever had so far, but it gets pauses, whenever im not using it for 10 minutes.
And its takes 10 s then to work again good. Working all day behind the computers, it gets a little bit frustrating after a while.
It does it only on my computer, on others it works fine.
Does anybody how to fix this problem.

My guess is that you have Energy saver set to spin down disks when not in use.

Apple Menu -> System Preference -> Energy Saver -> Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible

Try turn that off and see if it helps. It is a system preference so the issue would not follow the drive if that is the case.
