Question about VIA (CX-VT6421A) (CX-VT6421A) IDE Controller
I have a problem with my via vt6421 card. I use it to contact my hardrive with my motherboard. I experience that I do not have continous access to my datas on hardrive. For example in case of copiing a file from this hardrive to an other in the Total Commander thae process stops for some seconds, then it starts again, then it stops. Or in case of watching video files it stops playing in every 3-5 minutes, then it works again and so on. But if I watch a film that is on my other hardrive it works good.
How can I test if there is problem with the card or not? I have allready checked the cables.
Thanks in advance!

SOURCE: Sudden Hard Drive stop
Your hard drive may be intermittenly faulty, any abnormal sounds from a hard drive is not good. I would connect your hard drive to an USB adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port and do a Disk cleanup and defrag, if possible run disk diagnostic program on the hard drive. If the hard drive proved OK then you may have a faulty IDE controller or faulty IDE cable, check the BIOS battery voltage, may need a new one.
