If you are burning out hard drives, it's likely you have poor air circulation in your pc. Hard drives get hot, esp. if you do many drive intensive operations. I had this problem couple time.. So now what I do in most of my pcs, is jerry rig a small fan blowing air over the hard drives - and /or make sure I have a extra case fan sucking air out of pc case.

buy a small fan from radio shack or similar and - for example - use wire ties to hold it in place directing air over or across drives. In Years have never had problem w/over heated drives.
You can buy hard drive cooler fan setups, but I don't like them.

Blue smoke


Blue smoke (how many miles on engine, 50k or 500K???????
to some this means, burning oil, others steam
it that blue smoke lingers a long time that is oil burning
and smells just like oil burning.
and means 2 things,
1: engine burns oil.
2: if car had autotmatic trans the vacuum modulator love fail
and suck ATF fluid to the intake plenum and burn it, and bingo burning oil like mad.
3: PCV valve packed solid,and forces engine to leak oil or burn oil. or both. this is a 50k miles service point, skipping this?
4: gas in the oil making it thin and not sneaks past valve stems.
does oil change cure this.>?

now engines.
worn out engines smoke. (burn oil)
as do bad valve guides and seals.
and bad piston rings.
100 years same story, and miles matter. History on engine too.
matters.

I've had my Lite-On LH-20A1S SATA connector optical drive for about three years, and in the past year or so it had become difficult to get the tray to open whether there was a disc in it or not. I had to push the button very hard and hold it for several seconds, releasing it, pushing it and doing this three or more times to get the tray to open. Then, in the past couple of months, closing the tray has become difficult, needing to push and hold the button very firmly. Even a paper clip would not open the tray, nor did using computer to "eject" to open the tra

That could mean a mis match with the information held in the system index and what is on the rest of the hard drive.
Try running CHKDSK/F that should find any errors on the hard drive.

Replacement of hard drive


Seagate has been the master of Hard Drives for along time. Most of the other manufacturers have sold out to other companies.

For the past four years an 80Gig (Gigabyte) hard drive was the norm, but in 2008 that changed and the price of a 180Gig or 250Gig drive is less than double the cost of a 80Gig drive.

Terrabyte drives will be the norm in three years, they're already selling in the Server industry as the norm.

Burning dvd/cd


Hello there. As of about 5 or so years ago, it really doesn't matter which format of blank dvd you use to burn a disk to. if the intended player is around, or definitley older than that I would check on the specs in the manual to make sure.

How do I get past this Drivelock HDDBay password


Basically, for most of the notebooks, there is a Password provided to secure the data in the Hard Drive and restrict it from un-authorize access.
However, if the Drive Lock Password is set and forgot, it is not possible to unlock the Drive without the password.
However, you can try contacting any of your Friends who is familier with Hard Drives and is a technician who should be having some advanced methods to remove the Password or the Circuit Board of the Hard Drive.
