  1. From the Seatools SMART results: OK, looks like I have problems: This stinks. Thanks for the help though. Glad I have two external HDs.
  2. Yep, I did that. Nope. I'll try this now.
  3. We have this too at my office (our tech guy just offered me Vista Business on Friday but I only have 1 GIG of memory right now). Do they also offer Vista Office to you? I didn't ask at work but I hope they do.
  4. Could be the issue. I really doubt the drive is actually failing. It's not even a year old, worked fine in my PC and I was very careful when moving it from the old PC to the external case. I even formatted the drive to remove the partitions on it before I started using it as an external drive. So, I was expecting smooth sailing.
  5. I ran chkdsk and got to stage 4 of 5 and got this: The disk does not have enough space to replace bad clusters detected in file 858 of name . The disk does not have enough space to replace bad clusters detected in file 859 of name . An unspecified error occured. Any ideas?
  6. The drive isn't full. It's 160 GIG. The files can be moved in small groups but I'm guessing there has to be some setting that I could change that would avoid this error message. If the files got on to the HD via a backup program without error they should come off without error.
  7. Hi, I'm running into a problem copying a large photo folder from my External Seagate HD (this is an internal Ultra ATA drive that I put into an external case) to my PC. I get a Windows Delayed Write Failed error after it has copied about half the files. Any ideas on how I can remedy this issue? Thanks.
  8. I've updated the link with a test I ran today.
  9. I did the memory test and it came back clean. Does this mean it has to be the power supply? Any way to test the power supply?
  10. Thx. Anyone know of a good, free software that will burn ISO discs?
  11. You might try dling the most up to date driver for this mouse here: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/download...,CONTENTID=7636
  12. I've been running into a situation of late where I'll wake up and my PC will have restarted over the course of the night. I've also seen it happen during the daytime but for some reason overnight is more common. When I've seen it happen basically the PC powers off and then comes right back on so the system reboots. Could this be the power supply going bad? The only thing I have done recently with my PC was to add a 160 gig HD as a slave to the 60 gig that came with this thing 4 or 5 years ago. Could that have any effect? Thanks in advance.
  13. Thanks, good info. Any reason to change though? If I plan on just storing photos on this partition is NTFS any better than FAT32?
  14. Question, I've partitioned my drive and the software I used automatically made the bigger sector NTFS and the smaller sector FAT32. Why wouldn't it just create both as NTFS? Is there any advantage to me converting the smaller partition to NTFS?
  15. Thanks for the info. I guess I'll have to make a second partition.
