Question about Quantum Fireball Lct20 (QML20000LD-A) 20 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Fireball lct 40 gig friend opened Hallmark email virus on computer. will not run XP

Since my friend opened an email telling him that he had gotten a "Hallmark greeting" from a friend his computer will not boot up to XP. I tried everything that I know to do including finally formatting the drive and loading 98 on it. It took a few tries since it froze or went to the BSOD a few times but finally it installed. Then I tried to use scandisk and it freezes and I get the BSOD again. It looks like the person who wrote this virus thought of everything we might try and blocked all of them. I downloaded a program called "Diagnose for Quanum Hard Drives" but after downloading it on dialup it tells me that there are corrupted files on the disk and it will not install properly. It won't open on the computer. Can you give me any ideas? They would certainly be appreciated. The computer is a Compaq Presario 6000 with a half a gig of ram. I've no idea what type of CPU it has. Thanks.

There is a freeware program out there cald 'KILLDISK " that will write 1's & 0's to the HD once and wipe the hard drive - then reformat the HD and start over - I just did this on a compaq 6330 for my buddy using the old **** QML20000LD-A Fireball LCT20 - this HD stinks and it has 1990 size 128kb Buffer and a slow 4500RPM speed

Win98 hds in win xp dont show other program says not formatted


you will need to revert back to the master/slave setting.  As slave/slave neither disk will be the main controller. Try reverse the master disk to the slave, and the slave to master, as it may be that the controller has a fault which is why you were having the original win98 problem.  Let me know how you get on

Problem putting a 30 gig quantum lct 15 3.5"series as a slave


Did you switch the jumper config back to Master or CableSelect before trying to install them as a single drive? Also check the Maxtor website, (they owned Quantum too), for the correct jumper settings. Some of these drives (like the Quantum Fireball lct series) need TWO jumpers not just one.That was the trick that fixed mine from not being recognized by the Bios or the Windows setup disk....I got it used with only a single jumper, but it needed two to put it Cable Select mode.
