Regarding SATA 300 on VT8237R

Hi, I have been doing a bit of research to replace my failed 40gb SP0411C, the only viable option is the 80gb Seagate 7200.10, still available in the market. I suppose, this drive supports the revised 300mbps spec which is not supported by VT8237. However, most controllers allow forward compatibility (autonegotiation), it seems that this particular southbridge lacks such support (trusted source: wikipedia). However, it hasnt been clearly stated whether jumper settings (150mbps limit) can help overcome this problem. Post this discovery I have searched for some other sources on internet, but have reached ambiguous conclusions, some forums report that even jumper settings were of no help, and others, such as these confirm that jumpers were a success. I am basically clueless and need some confirmation from some expert. Please help.

    Clarification:


    Hi,
    I am not running raid. Its just a single hdd config. I am looking to replace my broken hdd (SP0411C), but the search for sata 150 has been quite some task, no brand new product belonging to this specie is available anymore (used hdds are risky). I wanna replace it with a sata 300 on vt8237r, and wanted a confirmation from those who have been able to do this successfully or otherwise.

Hi,

Since you are only running one drive you can do the following:

1) Go to Newegg.com and go to hard drives. Look for the Western Digital WD800JD. This has a jumper that you can set on the hard drive to force it back to sata 150. You can also read customer reviews to learn of other's experiences.

2) Instead of replacing with sata you can go IDE. This is your second option if you are uncomfortable with sata.

Both hard drives are available from Newegg. I've purchased from them many times and I have nothing but positive feelings about the company.

Regards,
Hank

Seagate SATA 80GB Master Drive and Seagate IDE 80GB Salve Drive


Dear,

You have to make IDE drive as slave. For this put the jumper to slave in IDE drive. Possibility of CMOS battery is rare, but you can confirm it by checking your system time in BIOS. If system time is ok then there is no problem in CMOS battery and you need not to replace it.

Thanks,

SATA 80GB Seagate HDD


When your 80GB SATA Seagate HDD complains of bad sectors while booting, this is a sign of a failing hard drive. Today's hard drives will actually self-correct a certain amount of bad sectors before you get any kind of error message. If you are getting "bad sector" errors, this is because the drive has so many problems that it can no longer self-repair. You asked if this may have happened because you have formatted the drive many times. No, bad sectors was not caused by formatting. Your drive did not become "dead slow" because of the formatting. It became slow because your cpu now has to do much more processing to "work around" the bad sectors on the drive. You also asked if you could recover your hard drive to normal state. Please understand that once a drive shows bad sectors, it will not be long before the drive fails completely, at which point you will no longer be able to access anything at all on the drive. No, this drive cannot be recovered. Instead, you should save all the data you can from this drive, and you should do this as soon as possible, before it fails altogether.
