This is only my 2nd drive to die by itself in the 8yrs i've had computers. Guys how many drives have died on you ?
Hmmm... We have a lot of old drives....

Out of all the Seagate IDE drives we have, 2 don't work. a 1.2GB Meadalist was given to us DOA, and a 2.1GB Medalist we got a few weeks ago didn't work. No problems with the three Barracuda 7200.7s that we have. It makes me want to get the 200Gbs for my RAID channel, but i don't know if it supports them

we're having problems testing old WD Caviars with a USB2-IDE converter (one of those standalone cords, not a Drive box) so i don't know if they work or not. Otherwise, no dead Caviars from 170GB up to 1.7GB

Our Quantum Sirocco 2.5GB is perfectly fine. Same with the Bigfoots and Fireballs...

No problems with the old 8GB Maxtor that we used to have. Same with the 4GB and 6GB Fujitsu drives, as well as most of the IBM drive that we have, though a 10GB was DOA when it was given to us...


Haven't tested any SCSI drives yet because we want to get the server that they came from (a Socket 5 Compaq Proliant with) running first.... That, and i'm not looking forward to installing that 5.25" full height SCSI drive which has a capacity of just over 1GB...
