we have some trouble here with a Hitachi HDD so we decided to do a HDD check with the UBCD V5.0 .
BIOS knows this HDD and it is normaly working.
So I boot from UBCD (V 5.0 ) and start the Drive Fitness Test wich is signed for IBM/Hitachi.
The Programm is scanning the ports ..... and .... nothing found.
Lucky me had an UBCD (V 4.1), so i did the same and run the Drive Fitness Test.
The Programm is scanning the ports ..... and .... found the HDD.
1. Question: WHY ? Why the v4.1 found the Drive and the v5.0 not ?
Being happy about founding the HDD i wanted to do a Quick Test.
I'm getting an error message, telling me that I can not test sATA drives. Bug ? Missing Drivers?
Then I start looking for another Check tool.
The only one which works with this Hitachi Drive was the ViVARD.
With this tool I found an HDD error: NRDY
2. Questin: Whatis NRDY ? I was looking for it with google but with no success. Maybe i tried the wrong parameters. Well i thought I will post it here... maybe someone has an idea.
That's it. Thanks for this very nice and useful collection in one iso File !!
