Hi Awene,

Due to yours is RAID 0. I don`t think you still can recover any of your data if you have backup before then you are very lucky. I recommend that you should use RAID 3 or higher. Please refer to this link for more details

have you looked at the drive shafts for the pulleys that drive the belt? If after awhile they wobble or vibrate, your mandrake shafts are going out, and depending on model, could cost round 75 a shaft to replace.

I have two WD1600s, in RAID 0 configuration, on my Dell XPS, XP. One has failed. Can I just buy another one and reload the OS? Will any WD1600 do?

If you have a Raid 0, then both drives are tied into one. You could remove the bad drive, and just use the leftover one. But you would need to disable RAID in the BIOS.

Unless you know how you benefit from a Raid 0, I do not recommend keeping a Raid 0 if you have important files you need to keep.

you could also buy another drive, disable Raid, and install the operating system on the first drive, and keep leftover files like pictures etc on the second drive.

I just managed to mess up my 1600 SC with Linux Mandrake. I want to change it from raid 5 to Win 7 and turn it into a JBOD. I can't get it to recognize the dvd player so the win disc won't fire up...ideas?...

Is there a RAID card Eg PERC installed? If so, did you use the hardware raid setup? Also, Why do you want to put Windows 7 on a Server? Have you thought about Windows Server 2003 or 2008?

Open her up and check all the connections and also the BIOS settings. Does the DVD drive appear in the BIOS detection screen? I would suggest tackling the DVD issue first! Maybe that you need to change the order that it boots so that the DVD drive is first.

I fried one of my graid drives how do i get the other to work

The G-Raid drives use RAID-0 which splits data across both internal drives, so unfortunately the remaining drive will not be able to be used to recover any files as it will only have fragments of each file on it - the other fragments having been lost on the faulty drive. Also, you will need to contact G-Tehcnology to get a replacement drive - the drives used (from memory I think they are Hitachi) have special firmware on them and other drives will not be compatible and you'll start getting strange errors.
G-RAID drives are designed for high-throughput work like video editing, not for redundancy - they should be treated as a single drive where if the data is important you have a copy of it on another drive. Keeping data on only one drive is not a back-up, it's a problem waiting to happen. Sorry I couldn't give you any good news.

Hi. my computer crashed a long time ago and I had to order some recovery disks but before I run them I want to backup the files on the drive but it has something called RAID (both 320GB hard drives only...

Well the drives are set to raid 0, if you're seeing 640GB. This implies that data will be stored on the first one till it's full and then move on to the next. If you have less than 320GB of data and you've lost drive 'A', then the chances of retrieving the data are slim. Your only options are then to try some recovery software or head off to a recovery company. Try running a diagnostic software on the drives individually to determine which drive is faulty.

Just curious: Is there any camera manufacturer that supports linux?

That is the one problem with Linux. Most of the drivers and such are written not by manufacturers, but by other folks.

Is mandrake the only distro you have tried?

You may try out Ubuntu and be sure to include the Universe and Multiverse mirrors in your sources.list.

Otherwise you may be out of luck.

The other option may be to get a card reader for you SD or whatever card you are using. That is what I have done for my digital camera. The readers don't cost much (I think I got my for $20 at Walgreen's and it reads four different kinds of cards. Linux just looks at it like a thumb drive or external hard drive.
