14:42:57dwihnoI just got myself a new (external USB2) disk. The disk worked like a charm for the first hours. When I reconnected it, it started clunking. I can't read any data. FreeBSD DO report the disk (or perhaps just the controller?)... The question is, is it possible to restore the data?

14:52:14dwihnoadvise, I ment
14:52:20dwihnoMean ment ment, Keep kept kept
14:52:23Zagorabout what?
14:52:29dwihnoZagor: the disk issue
14:53:15Zagoryou're running fbsd. we don't support that. ;)
14:53:49Bagderwhat prob is that?
14:54:54dwihnoI just wonder if I will be able to recover any data
14:55:33dwihnoThe disk goes: "fiizzzzzz" (spinup) *CLUNK* *CLUNK* *CLUNK* *CLUNK* (until it somehow gives up the attempts to read)
14:55:51Bagderisn't that a usb-storage driver problem?
14:55:52dwihnoThe spinup sounds normal though
14:56:08dwihnoThe problem is even when I don't attach the drive.
14:56:17dwihnoI just need to power it to experience the issue.
14:56:56Zagoryou mean it sounds like that with no usb cable at all attached?
14:57:10Zagorboo. return it.
14:57:29Zagoror at least call them up and ask them.
14:57:43dwihnoThe clunk sounds are probably the arm going all mongo?
14:58:07dwihnoI got a phone number. Too bad it's in Ireland.
14:58:34Zagorbut you didn't buy it from ireland, did you?
14:59:07dwihnoBought it from Dustin
14:59:13dwihnoI wrote a pretty good mail
14:59:15Zagorthey handle warranty issues
14:59:34dwihnoI even attached a mp3 with the sounds. If I only was able to use some kind of server, I'd let you listen too :)
15:00:33dwihnoI wrote a mail earlier today, and this is what I got in reply: Alla renden av trasiga Maxtor externa skts av dem sjlva s vi fr inte in dem via oss.
15:01:00dwihnoThen I got that Guinness number
15:02:13Zagordwihno: i'm not sure they are allowed to do that. retailers are responsible for the products they sell.
15:03:19dwihnoHm. Once a Nokia monitor died on me, and I had to do stuff myself. Such as contacting a firm who took care of the replacement.
15:04:15dwihnoFeels rather dull.
15:04:30dwihnoA SPRILLANS NY disk, dying after approx 5 hours
15:04:34dwihnoMust be a record.
15:05:11dwihnoAfter a google-session, I also found another dude who experienced the same "clunk clunk" death. He had converted 300 CD's when it died :-/
15:07:04dwihnoWhere's your so-called God when your hard disk dies? ;)
15:07:36Bagderin the backup
15:08:49dwihnoBackup is for sissies
15:08:55Bagderand for 300 CDs
15:09:03dwihnoTrue, true.
15:09:12dwihnoYou think the data is gone down the drain?
15:10:24BagderI don't think they'll repair it
15:10:26Bagderthey replace it
15:11:20dwihnoI wonder what they do with it afterwards.
15:11:38dwihnoPaperweights? :)
15:12:05dwihnoOr perhaps they repair them and sell them as new? ^_^
15:12:13BagderI doubt it
15:12:37BagderI doubt that is cost-effective
15:12:38dwihnoHaven't archos done anything like that?
15:13:04Bagderbut that's because the warranty says you should get a "new or equivalent" one in case yours break
15:13:18dwihnoDisks are pretty hard to repair?
15:13:36BagderI don't really know, I'm just guessing
15:13:45dwihno*google for answers*
15:14:47dwihno*read "how hard disk work"*
15:18:31dwihnoDamn they're smooth!

15:24:01dwihnoMust be ancient. I remember a BIOS thing in a 386 computer.
15:24:26dwihno"What? There were computers slower than 2GHz?!"
15:26:57dwihno*sigh* I guess I'll have to phone those Irish support dudes and tell them I want a new disk! :)
15:30:16Bluechiplow level formatting is the process of laying down the magnetic pattern that guides the heads over the platters - it is a last resort for recovering a dead drive (which may be relevant here). If you do this - DO NOT stop half way through or the disk is bin-worthy without specialist equipment that is tailored for that specific model of drive. "SpinRite" *may* help you depending on what has happened
15:33:06dwihnolooks pretty neato
15:33:33dwihnoToo bad the computer doesn't wanna' mambo with the disk :-/ :-)
15:34:13Bluechipnot even identified by the bios?
15:40:13dwihnoIt's an external disk :-)
15:41:30Bluechipis it not just an ide drive in a usb converter box?
15:42:36Zagorit might be a bad idea to open the box if you want to claim warranty
15:43:22dwihnoIt will void it.
15:44:03dwihnoWhen I started tearing it apart, I found the sticker "warranty void if box opened" (or something similar)

17:41:43RedLegAny hardware gurus on-line? I'm having a wierd hard drive problem...
17:42:56quelsarukif it is a weird hd problem.. i'm your man ;)
17:44:42RedLegKewl, I upgraded to a 60gig toshiba drive a few months ago, and all was working fine.
17:45:27RedLegThen last week, I got an "HD register error" followed by register info at boot, and the Archos won't spin up the drive.
17:46:03RedLegThe drive works just fine outside the Archos Recorder20, and other drives (non toshiba) work fine in the recorder.
17:46:34RedLegArchos Tech Support recommended I format the drive, which I have done, but it made no difference.
17:47:00RedLegAny suggestions?
17:48:15quelsaruki haven't seen that error before. I mean, my 30GB gave me some problems, but only if i had low batt.
17:48:37quelsarukcould it be that the drive is locked?
17:48:58RedLegI've tried three different sets of fully charged 1800mah batteries, no difference.
17:49:42RedLegIf the drive were locked, would I be able to use it on another machine? It works fine on a regular IDE controller or in a USB exterbal enclosure.
17:50:03quelsarukno, i suppose you wouldn't be able
17:50:22quelsaruki have no idea.
17:50:37RedLegYeah, I'm stumped too...
17:51:09RedLegStrange thing is, I put another small (also fully functional) toshiba drive in, and got the same problem.
17:51:34RedLegRegister values in the error message were identical.
17:51:52quelsarukyour jukebox is a bit racist
17:51:54quelsarukthat's all
17:52:33RedLegWell, I could accept that, except it worked for MONTHS with this drive in it, and then just quit.
17:54:20quelsarukbtw, is your toshiba drive noisy?
17:54:45RedLegNo, I wouldn't call it noisy.
17:54:56quelsaruki saw a jukebox with a 6GB toshiba and was a lot more noisy than mine (hitachi)
17:55:11quelsaruklike a jet airplane :)
17:55:33RedLegBut given the difficulty I'm having, and the fact that the Archos doesn't like TWO toshiba drives, I can't recommend one for this application.
17:56:42RedLegHave you heard of anyone else upgrading to a 60g drive?
18:00:06quelsaruk2 or 3
18:00:17quelsarukdw|gone has a 60 gb hd drive
18:00:21quelsarukbut he's gone ;)
18:01:07RedLegI'm curious what brand HD they used, and if they have heard of this problem.
18:01:39quelsaruki know there was a problem with 60gb hd drives
18:01:55quelsaruki saw something at the mail list
18:02:01quelsarukbut can't remember
18:02:14quelsarukif you want, you could read the mail list
18:03:38RedLegOK, I'll check the archives (I assume they're online somewhere?)

18:22:54RedLegYes, Thank you.

18:23:12RedLegI owe you a beverage of your choice....
18:24:02quelsaruknot at all
18:24:26quelsarukit's my tribute to the society ;P
18:25:25RedLegI'm still trying to figure out why this happened..... Apparently the Archos is leaking enough current to CSEL the drive to slave.
18:26:04RedLegBut it worked fine for months, and I changed NOTHING! A simple power cycle triggered it.
18:27:17RedLegThanks again...

19:10:49Bluechipnot in great detail (well not yet) but in a general way...
19:11:57BluechipIf I am going to start patching, I will need to have an idea of how it works - and I'm jsut trying to save (lots of) time
19:12:11 Quit DJBaz ("Client exiting")
19:13:26quelsaruki dunno how to explain this...
19:13:50Bluechiplol - i understand - ANY information you can offer will surely help me :)
19:15:28Bluechipthere is almost -no- comments in the code :(
19:15:29Bluechipit is quite hard to read when you don't know what is happening
19:16:59quelsaruki don't even know how to start.
19:17:23quelsaruki've tried to make 2 or 3 patches... and i knew where to look at.. so..
19:18:13 Quit webmind_ (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
19:18:14quelsaruki suppose you need to talk with a real guru
19:18:24Bluechiplol ;)
19:18:29quelsarukadiamas|work: are you here?
19:18:41adiamas|workyup.. whats up?
19:18:50 Nick adiamas|work is now known as adi|work (
19:18:58quelsarukcould you answer Bluechip :)
19:19:07adi|workk.. one sec..
19:19:13quelsaruki don't know how to start :)
19:19:18quelsarukor continue
19:19:31quelsaruk(i'm fighting with the manual)
19:19:49adi|workokay. Bluechip. id say approach it this way...
19:19:53adi|workfind an itch
19:19:56adi|workthen scratch
19:20:13adi|workfor instance... sokoban was bugging me.. so i rewrote it :)
19:20:21quelsarukah! and adi|work, on recorders, settings are saved in both RTC and HD no?
19:20:30adi|workwell.. patched patch patched... and then eric encouraged me to rework i t:)
19:20:45adi|workumm.. wait..
19:20:49adi|workRTC for sure...
19:20:57adi|workHD do you mean in a config file? or in HD space?
19:21:06BluechipI found an itch - but everybody said don't scratch it :(
19:21:14quelsarukplayers save their settings on HD, and i think recorders do that also
19:21:15adi|workhehe what was your itch?
19:21:27adi|workhmm im not 100% quelsaruk...
19:21:37adi|workbeen ages since i touched the settings stuff...
19:22:00quelsaruki have to write that for the man
19:22:04Bluechipi thought that something I could do would be to optimise the core libs into asm (strcmp etc.) also noticed that I could get about 4k of rom space back
19:22:19adi|workBluechip: not worth it..
19:22:34adi|worksokoban alone with its dynamic level loading gives us 30k back :)
19:23:00adi|workand if you do an assembly rewrite we are back to square one with debugging core libs...
19:23:33adi|workand have even less eyes since the general level of devs are more then likely less assembly oriented...
19:23:43adi|workbesides.. thats not an itch.. thats a compulsion ;)
19:23:58adi|workand itch would be: "hmmm.. i want an inverted cursor... how do i do that..."
19:24:09 Nick _seb_ is now known as seb-away (Sean@
19:24:14adi|workor "oh.. we don't have chess... let me write that"
19:24:33adi|workor if you _really_ wanna work ;)
19:24:38adi|workhelp quelsaruk with the docs...
19:24:49adi|workas you read code, write down all the key combos and what they do...
19:25:46Bluechipyes, but after writing a decompiler and a silicon level cpu simulator - flashing a cursor is not really of interest to me
19:25:54adi|workthe eagerness is appreciated, but the benefits don't outweigh the drawbacks...
19:26:14adi|workheheh i understand..
19:26:23Bluechipfair enough - mybe I will just play at home
19:26:24 Quit Nibbler ("OIL = Operation Iraqi Liberation")
19:26:27adi|workfind something else
19:26:41adi|workif there is something in a way you don't like... rework it..
19:26:56adi|workjust cause its in don't mean features can't be replaced if you have a better method :)
19:27:23Bluechipso can i ask what is so special about this MASSIVE rand() function?
19:27:51adi|workall i know is that its more psuedo random then the old version...
19:28:22Bluechipit has a longer period, so if you have more than four billion files to sort, you will not see a recurring pattern
19:28:48Bluechipit's pointless overkill!?
19:29:26Bluechipbut as the shuffle function written so well, you would never see the difference anyway
19:30:29adi|workdunno... need to argue that with the swedish lads
19:31:13adi|workokay... snowing bad.. going home...
19:31:13adi|worklater all
19:31:16*adi|work is away: going home

22:59:51Bagdernot necessarily the latest, but a daily build yes
23:00:58BoD[]like the old saying says: "latest best est"
23:01:53hutsujiok thanks. "trickle charge off" means, that the AJB will not be charged while connected?
23:02:29Bagderif connected, it will charge
23:02:33Bagderno matter what
23:02:51hutsujihmm, than i missunderstood
23:03:10Bagdertrickle charge just makes it charge somewhat "more"
23:03:28Bagderwhy connect the power if you don't want to charge?
23:04:05hutsujii tried to explain it (but not easy for me in english)
23:04:50hutsujii tought it wood be possible to run the AJB with that option without using battery for example while i copy mp3s on it
23:05:09hutsujiwood!?!? ...would i mean *gg*
23:06:07Bagderit *always* uses batteries
23:06:34Bagdereven when the power is connected
23:07:21Bagderand while using USB you can use more power than the charger charges

23:11:02tracktheripperArchos said they ARE looking to support WMA for the Jukeboxes
23:11:28Bagderyeah yeah yeah suuuuure
23:11:40BoD[]what's the point ?
23:11:44BagderI think you talked to a salesperson
23:11:53BoD[]who wants wma ? :)
23:12:44hutsujibut it would make sence, using the AJB by power supply without using battery?
23:12:47tracktheripperwell WMA offers same sound quality as MP3 but half the file size (alledgely)
23:13:02Bagderhutsuji: its not possible
23:13:10BoD[]i'd rather buy a bigger hard drive
23:13:11hutsujihm. ok ;)
23:13:16tracktheripperwell according to Archos it is badger :-)
23:13:29tracktheripperthey did say ALL Jukeboxes
23:13:35BoD[]wma has copy prevention schemes, right ?
23:13:36Bagderthey SAY so yes
23:13:45BagderI'll shutup when I see it
23:13:56Bagderwhich I bet we won't
23:14:00tracktheripper:-) you are beginning to sound just like Zagor (grumpy) :-)
23:14:21Bagderthat's because I'm not as easily fooled as you are ;-)
23:14:38tracktheripperArchos is currently working on supporting WMA format for all Jukebox players. While this is planned it is not guaranteed and I can give you no timeframe for when such an update might be released. It will only support standard MP3 format at this time
23:14:51tracktheripperthats what Archos emailed to me
23:15:22tracktheripperArchos is currently working on supporting WMA format for all Jukebox players.

23:35:43tracktheripperBagder will the "inverted video line" appear soon?
23:35:58Bagdersure, as soon as someone writes a patch
23:36:06tracktheripperJoquam did!
23:38:24BoD[]josh : do you any idea why ? I mean.. either the batteries are slow, and the disk can't spin, or they are full enough to make it spin, but why does it depend on me pressing On a long time ?
23:39:17BoD[]and i'm not in electronics or anything ;) but doesn't sound logical to me
23:41:33josh966I dunno..on my box there seemed to be a correlation between spinning up the hd and crashing/freezing. maybe the voltage momentarily dropped low enough to make one of the components feel woozy. do you see the prob when you are plugged in?
