How do I image the SCSI drives?

Ginko, thanks for your support ,appreciated.

Please tell me how I may image the hard drives since they are not ATA or SATA which can easily be connected via USB.
SCSI is a different story and I have no idea as how to image these drives as i do not have a physical SCSI---> to USB tool.

I do however have Acronis for imaging which is very much like Ghost (though much better)


Your prompt help is much appreciated

thank you very much

    It is amazing we look for support in all the additional places as oposed to using our common sense and contacting the MFR / supplier/Vendor conerned, in this case HP. After calling them and logging my request not only did they email me back with a FULL solution but followed up.

    The solution is rather simple, take out the Raid 0/1 drive (36GB) and repalce with the bigger 146GB drive let it rebuld and then once the rebuld has finished do the same with the second drive. Once the rebuld is finished use the HP ACU to Extend the unallocated free space and then Expand. there you have it folks :)
    PS: the same solution goes for Raid 5 {i this as an Array B with 3 drives}

    Thanks folks

Once you set the new drive into the array use Acronis to copy an image of disk with the system on one of the other disks (not the new one you are installing to), and then use restore image on imaging software to restore the image on the new disk.

I am having frequent BSOD and also flash/shockwave player problems.. what to do ???


I can only assume that you have added some new hardware to your system recently. BSOD is usually an indication of a hardware conflict, caused by new hardware, Remove any new hardware and try again, BSOD can have other causes although hardware is the most common. Hope this helps.

I have a Maxtor QMP20000AS-a drive What is the jumper settings


first of all SCSI drives are not configured as Master or Slave, they are assigned a SCSI ID. Your SCSI controller is usually SCSI ID 7 (not sure why) but you can usually remove all the jumpers and that would be SCSI ID 0. you can have as many hard drives attached to your SCSI controller so long as each one has a unique SCSI ID and is not assigned SCSI ID 7. I know this is not for your drive but look HERE to get a basic idea of how to assign SCSI ID's to hard drives.

My Computer did not access Western Digital Hard Disk, Model No. WD 1600 AABB Caviar SATA.


Good morning! Please make sure that the drive’s power and SATA cables are properly connected. If the Serial ATA host adapter card is installed in a 64-bit PCI slot on the system motherboard, move the card to a 32-bit slot.

Verify that only one power cable (either SATA or legacy) is connected to the drive. Check to see that the power connector and SATA interface cable are securely attached and that the
SATA host adapter card is properly seated in the PCI slot.

The Serial ATA interface connects each drive in a point-to-point configuration with the built-in SATA port on the motherboard or with the SATA host adapter card; therefore eliminating the master/slave relationship as required with EIDE. Each drive utilizes its own
cable for data transfer rates. Jumper settings for Western Digital Serial ATA hard drives are mainly used for enterprise storage environments.

Most third party controller cards and RAID adapters are recognized as a SCSI device under Device Manager. This is normal and will not affect your drive or system performance.

To verify if the Serial ATA drive is recognized by the system, Right-click on the My Computer icon, select Properties, left-click on the Hardware tab, and click on Device Manager in the window. Double-click on Disk Drives. Your new Western Digital Serial ATA drive should be listed as a "SCSI Disk Device" or "Serial ATA Disk Device." If not, make sure that all cables are securely attached and that your system BIOS has been properly configured. regards

Difference between HDD and SATA


Buying a new SATA hard drive is confusing if you don't understand the differences between the various drive types. Which hard drive should you buy?

SATA Hard Drives (Serial ATA) are the most popular drives being sold today. Alongside them in the store however you will also find boxes labeled Parallel ATA or SCSI. So what are the differences between these hard drives and which one should you purchase? Your decision is dictated by what your computer can accept. Check with your computer's manufacturer to see which drive style you can use. Most newer computers purchased within the last two years accept SATA connections. If your computer cannot accept one of the newer SATA hard drives you can purchase SATA adaptor cards that plug into an empty expansion slot on your computer's motherboard. You can purchase SCSI adaptors as well, so follow these tips to guide your decision.

SATA vs PATA: Serial ATA vs. Parallel ATA Drives SATA hard drives have many benefits over their older cousin, the Parallel ATA drive. Chief among these differences are:
  • SATA hard drives are faster and perform much better than traditional ATA drives and are better for high bandwidth applications such as video editing and multiplayer gaming.
  • SATA drives use a smaller, cheaper cable to connect to the computer's motherboard. These cables can also be up to three feet in length compared to eighteen inches with Parallel ATA cables.
  • SATA hard drives can be hot swappable, meaning that they can be disconnected and reconnected without powering down the computer. There are limits to this of course. You should never disconnect your boot drive while the computer is operating.
  • SATA cables are easier to plug in without damaging the delicate connecting pins on the drive.
  • SATA hard drives are significantly faster than external USB hard drives.
SCSI Hard Drives SCSI hard drives are the elders of the storage world. SCSI is one of the oldest specifications but it is also the fastest and thus has been widely used in network servers and other high speed, high bandwidth applications. Unfortunately this high speed storage has also meant much higher costs. SCSI drives were once standard in all Macintosh computers but have since been replaced by the cheaper SATA based hard drives.
  • SCSI drives are also hot swappable, similar to the SATA drives.
  • Some varieties of SCSI can be used with SATA
  • SCSI drives are often set up in a mirroring arrangment to allow for instant, continuous backups of the hard drives.
  • SCSI drives are still the most expensive drives on the consumer market.
Your basic rule of thumb should be to purchase a drive that is designed to work with your computer's motherboard. Try to avoid using SCSI adaptors or SATA adaptors unless absolutely necessary as the whole point of using a specific kind of hard drive is to get the most speed and storage for the money.

Thanks alot,

I have a maxtor 6L080M0 hard drive that has crashed The return code is 7 Is there any way to fix this problem.


If the following determines you have hard drive failure then you may have to purchase a new HD. Follow what is recommended from the manufacturer below. READ EVERYTHING.

According to Seagate the makers of Maxtor, you have a DiamondMax 10 (6L080M0). See below or click here

My internal hard drive may be defective, how can I test it?

Question

My internal hard disk drive may be defective, how can I test it?

How can I determine if the problem is with my system or with the hard drive?

It is necessary to run the SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, or SCSIMax diagnostic before contacting Technical Support 1.800.SEAGATE (1.800.732.4283) on an internal drive that may be defective.

Answer
For Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA drives:

If this is a Seagate or Maxtor (or Quantum) ATA or SATA drive, please download the SeaTools for DOS diagnostic to test it. If the drive is failing, the tests in SeaTools for DOS will indicate as such.

If the BIOS does not recognize the drive or the drive does not spin please reference Answer ID: 48

The operating system will not recognize a drive that is not formatted and partitioned. If you need help with formatting:

  • Windows 9x and ME reference Answer ID: 3076
  • Windows 2000 Answer ID: 880
  • Windows XP Answer ID: 3361
  • Windows Vista Answer ID: 3844
  • Macintosh Answer ID: 492


    For Seagate SCSI drives:
    Please download the SeaTools Enterprise Edition diagnostic.

    For Maxtor (or Quantum) SCSI drives:
    Please download the SCSIMax diagnostic.

    SeaTools, SeaTools Enterprise, and SCSIMax will test your S.M.A.R.T-compliant ATA, SATA, or SCSI disk drive for media defects, perform a read test, physical head test and ensure the hard drive is functioning correctly.

    If all the tests pass (no trouble found), the problem remains elsewhere in your system. Reconfirm all settings for hard drive jumpers, cables, and ATA, SATA, or SCSI controllers, and disk operating system. Consult your host controller documentation or system manufacturer for assistance with SCSI termination or ATA / SATA controller capabilities.

    I can´t use a serial ata disk in a proliant 350


    I know ATA disks are cheaper , but they don't last as long or are less reliable.

    I do not recommend mixing SCSI and ATA .

    Use one or the other , not both.

    Do not try , unless your server is non critical.
    If it is non critical , why bother with server , a PC will do as well.

    Thanks
