Any "Parity Error" is from a communication error on the SCSI bus, and it's bad! Errors are a way of life, and the SCSI transceiver has failsafes to fight them, and one of these is parity. Consider it extra data that the controller sends when you transfer data to your hard disks. Once there, the drives transceiver does a simple ccheck and verifies that the parity is correct. If not, a Parity Error is generated.

99% of the problems surround the SCSI bus itself in the form of a damaged SCSI cable, loose terminator, or a bent pin on a SCSI connector (latter being most common). This error is more apparent after moving the SCSI devices, resulting in unplugging and then replugging the cables back onto the Targets (HDD, CD/DVD ROM, printer, etc.) or back onto the Host Bus Adapter (HBA - the 29320 in your case). Check ALL pins. You can try to straighten the pins, otherwise it's time to replace the cable. REMEMBER that terminators are a must and can also cause Parity Errors if there is no termination present on one end of the bus or the other.
This coming from an ex-Adaptec employee and support person! :)

Best of luck

Hi

Thank you for your query

If there is a clicking noise inside then the hard drive is on the way out, the arm that reads the data is knocking against the plates, thus the noise

I would recommned that you back your data as soon as possible as the drive will eventually fail

You can access these logs here:

Right click on "My Computer", scroll down and click on "Manage"
This will open your "Computer management" window.
On the left side you will see "Event viewer".
Click on the plus sign and it will open the log files. The ones you want to look at will be Application or System.
Now, if you see an error, double click on it and a window will open. Pay close attention to the "Source, Category and Event ID" names and numbers.
Now with the Event ID number, go to this site: http://www.eventid.net/
Plug in your data and do a search.
It may help to tell you why the computer is crashing when inserting disks.

Hope this helps.
