Question about Buffalo Technology DriveStation HD-HC500U2 500 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

HD-HC500U2 takes 30 seconds to mount

I formatted the drive as ReiserFS for use with SuSE linux 10.0.
When I cd to /media/usbdisk, it takes 30 seconds for the drive to mount. after that it works fine.
/var/log/messages contains:

    Taking 39 seconds is the problem. The disk is up-to-speed. It should take no more than a few seconds to mount a disk.

I have an Ml 110 G5 Server, But i could not find the VGA driver for the Win Xp , kindly assist thanks Justin

Hi, I m really sorry to say that but you have a Server Product and its built to run Windows Server Series on it (or Linux / Novell Netware).
This is the list of compatible Server list
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for 64-bit Extended Systems Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Essential Business Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Foundation Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Small Business Microsoft Windows Server 2008 W32 Microsoft Windows Server 2008 x64 Novell NetWare 6.5 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (AMD64/EM64T) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (x86) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server (x86) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server (x86-64) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (AMD64/EM64T) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (x86) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 (AMD64/EM64T) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 (x86)
Here is the link for Drivers
Try to use the Driver for Windows 2003.
It has a Matrox VGA as I know. If you know which Matrox series you have, then Browse here for the Drives: Matrox Graphics Support. Make sure that you choose the Exact Driver software which suites the System.
Note: Not every product has the Driver Software for Windows XP.
Please rate the answer! Thanks for contacting Fixya!

whell th eproblem is, when u pluged it in to the seagate...... a variation of the first sector happend, or something like that, thats y you cannot access it frome vista, and propably frome xp 2, what u can do is , using special programes for fixing boot sectors **** they are for experienced users in that domain (ex of product, winpe mini cd....), or u can download any linux live cd, its totally free (google for it), i recomand puppy if you are not familior with linux, when u download the iso and burn it, plug your external drive and boot the cd, when loaded, mount the extrenal drive and the internal one (if u have one), you will see the data, copy them , and then reboot with windows and format the external drive...then recopy the files.

Time for physical format ???

Formatting such a large hard disk will take a long time, especially if you do a full format (not a quick format).
Just let the computer do its thing, don't turn it off.
