Get IBM to come out and swap the drive, I think it costs about £1600. For an extra £400 they will send an engineer out to swap it, from what I can gather it looks like you need it!!!

Recommendations for replacement cd-rw drive


Your best, cheapest, bet is to replace the unit with another one that is the same like, kind, and quality. I would suggest Ebay.

You may also check on Amazon, Yahoo, and IOffer websites. Each of these has been known to have parts for laptops available.

good luck

Hi

The error message you are receiving "Inquiry command failed Using IBM-PC ServerRaid Host adapter" makes me think you are attaching the tape drive to the ServerRaid Controller, which is only for Hard Disks. There should be a normal SCSI interface for attaching tape drives, etc. It's possible that the ServerRaid card is a PCI (or older) plug in card, and the normal SCSI interface will be on the main motherboard. If you look on the IBM website for the Hardware Maintenance Manual, it should hopefully make things clearer.

The reason you may not be seeing the hard drives in CMOS, is because you will need to use the IBM ServerRaid Utility to view and configure the disks.

160gb 7200rpm hhdd for ibm t41


Hi,

If your Vendor is saying that it wont support the capacity above 80GB and speed above 5400rpm, i'll suggest not to waste your money because your machine will definitely will not recognize it since its hardware limitation.

Please dont go for it.

Thanks.

Try to format the System using NTFS and if it still says 'corrupted', the Hard Drive is faulty and you will have to get a new one

Hope This Helps
