Re: HD error? Disk not reading properly...

I'm not sure, but I sometimes get something similer if I start up the box and inadvertantly jog
it - it makes a quite scary noise that seems consistant with what you are describing (perhaps a faster series
of clicks though).

Maybe it's time for you to upgrade your drive?

my old beauty is not feeling very good, I think. All of a sudden it

cant read from the HD properly. When booting as usual, it hangs just

when its about to load rockbox. The HD makes a repeating pattern of

noises from, something like chuck chuck chuck chuck....chuchuck. You

get it.... eh.

I can get it too show up on a windows machine after booting with F1

pressed, but I cant even start scandisk, since the HD cant give

scandisk enough information to even start scanning.

Correction: after 10-15 minutes of this chucking, scandisk started,

but with this speed the whole scanning will take 24 hours....

Anyone recognize this behaviour?
