Is this a new install or upgrade? Check the thumb switch on the JBOD enclosures and make sure they're all set sequentially down the daisy chain. The one closest electrically (not necessarily physically) has to be set to 1 and so on. Make sure the drive and controller firmware are current too... an "armdsp -a " will tell you what they are. If you're in the US, call 800-633-3600 Options 1 > 2 and use "VA disk array on HPUX" as your keyword. They can help you with getting it updated.

Fix Error performing inpage operation

did you try unhide/reset attribute? in Windows you can use "attrib" command. Since you familiar with "chkdsk" command, so i assumed you have no problem how to use "attrib" command. Good luck!

One day able to attach external drive/disk via USB port - next day unable to reconnect - Computer properties did NOT show EXTERNAL drive at any PORT

Whenever you use coaxial or phone lines make sure to use a surge protector power bar. They have a thermistor in them to blow up and protect your equipment. I'd say you have blown a diode or ic that supplies power and converts data from the usbs. It may just be one of your voltage wires from your power supply.

Need command prompt for Acer Aspire

The Windows Backup and Restore feature allows you to save files and system images to external backup devices such as hard drives and flash drives. However, backing up files become problematic if the directory your backing up files from isn't configured properly, or if you're having issues with the devices you're backing files to. There are ways to solve or work around backup problems quickly and safely.

Hard Drive b> A backup will not complete if the files you're backing up exceed the amount of space left on the external hard drive. If you're backing up large system files, Microsoft recommends saving the backup to an external hard drive that can hold at least 200 GB. If you're running out of space, you must delete content to create space for others or use another hard drive. Error Codes In some cases, Windows displays the following error codes when it's unable to complete a backup: "0x80070001 (Invalid Function)" or "0x81000037: Windows Backup failed while trying to read from the shadow copy on one of the volumes being backed up." These error messages usually appear if Windows is unable to backup a specific library or if you opt out of adjusting your backup settings and settle for the default settings in the Windows Backup and Restore Feature. Reparse Point b> If you're unable to backup a specific library and run into error code messages, removing the reparse point allows you to complete the backup. A reparse point is a file that contains information about the user on a computer. If it doesn't point to a location that contains some of the data you want to backup, error messages appear when you try to back up your files. Type "CMD" in the Start Search box to open the Command Prompt. In the Command Prompt, typing "DIR /AL /S" and pressing Enter lists the reparse points. Each entry says "JUNCTION," which also means reparse point. The entries also tell you the location of the reparse points in Windows Explorer. If you locate a specific reparse point in Windows Explorer, delete its mounted volume from the device's Properties. Once deleted, you should be able to back up your files. Discs b> If you're backing up files to a disc, you'll run into problems if the discs are non-rewritable and already contain data, or if they are severely scratched or damaged. Non-rewritable discs can only be used once, while rewritable discs can be used to read and write data several times. If the CD or DVD you're using is severely scratched, the optical disc drive spins harder than usual in an attempt to read it. If it's incapable of reading the disc, the backup feature may freeze or display an error.

IO error

The message "The Request Could Not Be Performed Because of an I/O Device Error" appears when Windows is unable to read the data on a storage device.


If this error message appears when attempting to access the files on an input/output

(I/O or IO) device, such as an external hard drive, the file system on the drive could be damaged, the drive could be infected with a virus or the data connector inside the device enclosure could have come loose.


If troubleshooting the drive fails to fix the IO device error, formatting the drive might repair the device.

Connect the external hard drive to the computer.


Run an antivirus program.


Click the "Scan" tab or button, then click "Custom."

Uncheck all items in the list except for the drive letter assigned to the external drive.


Click "OK." Click "Scan" or "Scan Now" to run a virus scan on the hard drive.

Quarantine or remove any infections the virus scanner detects.


Click "Start." Input "cmd.exe" into the search field.

Press "Enter" to open Command Prompt. Input "chkdsk <drive>: /f /r" into Command Prompt.


Replace "<drive>" with the letter assigned to your external hard drive.

Press "Enter" to run CheckDisk on the drive.


CheckDisk will search for and repair detected errors or bad sectors.


Burn the files on the external hard drive to a set of DVDs or move the files to another drive, if possible.

If the IO device error reappears when attempting to move the files, disconnect the external hard drive from the computer.


Remove the power adapter from the drive.

Check the documentation included with the drive for instructions to take the drive apart.


If no instructions are available, contact the manufacturer for instructions or find out if disassembling the drive will void the drive's warranty.


Remove the screws securing the faceplate to the drive or from the edge of the enclosure. Insert the edge of a small, flathead screwdriver in between either side of the enclosure to wedge both sides apart.


Check the connections to the drive.

Confirm that the IDE or SATA interface is plugged into the back of the drive.


Reassemble the external hard drive, reconnect the power adapter and reconnect the drive to the PC.


Attempt to access the files on the drive.

If the IO device error reappears, return to Command Prompt. Input "format /fs:fat32 <drive>:" into the command-line prompt.


Replace "<drive>" with the letter assigned to the external hard drive.


Press "y" when the message "Proceed with Format (Y/N)?" appears.

The process will format the drive, erasing all data on the disk.


If the drive still fails to function after format, you will need to replace the drive.


Hope this helps

Mine keeps saying "USB Over

The power adapter could be faulty.
If you get an error message"Insufficient power to operate USB device" when you plug a USB deviceinto the computer's USB port, then this device is drawing excessive currentthat the USB port cannot supply. In case such as this, youneed to purchased a powered USB hub and connect this hub into the computer'sUSB port and then connect the USB device into this powered USB hub.

The harddrive wont power up witout the power cable attached to an extra usb port but now I keep getting a message saying USB device not recognised and when i go to the device manager it says unknown usb...

You need the power from the 2 USB ports in order for the Drive to have enough Power.
Try moving the USB Ports to another Port or Flip Flop the 2 USB Cables.
Another option is to uninstall the unknown device. Remove the USB Cables, Uninstall Shut Down, Re-Start.
NOTE: Certain Ports on your System are USB 2.0 and some are not. Try to use the 2.0 port listed in the Manual... it will be faster and may carry the Power.

Dell Inspiron 8500 started boot error message ?primary hard disk drive 0 failure, no boot device available?strike F1 to retry reboot, F2 for setup. Ran express diagnostics and it shows two errors: Error...

Call Dell if under warranty. Start shopping for a replacement hdd if outside of warranty. You'll need
your OS disks that came with computer (hopefully). If you don't have OS/recovery disks, you can get
them from Dell or even using somebody elses (match version with sticker on your laptop).

Check the hdd connection underneath laptop - make sure cable is not loose, etc.

Probably safe to say your data is gone unless you're willing to spend $$.
