Whilst drafting a log post about different hard drive manufacturer's return policies in follow-up to my lament about a dodgy drive, I read through Hitachi's troubleshooting guide which recommended trying a different cable. Lo and behold, switching out the SATA cable for the drive that is complaining and several hours of read/write tests later, not a single CRC complaint.


Yes, exacty what I suggested in a comment to your last post....



that's right jim, thank you for your last comment. I didn't see it until after I posted my follow-up post. -- Jon
