Since I doubt that all 8 cables that came with the controller are faulty, and there is no compatibility issue with these drives (according to HPT support anyway), the error should be with the controller itself.
Thanks again for your input.
hey i was wondering if you had gotten the issue resolved. i currently am having fits with the same 2320 controller. i had 5 wd5000ks 500gb but they would randomly disconnect and break the raid5 array. so even though HPT lists that model as compatible they emailed and told me that the YS model is what they support.. tough break.
i bought 4 SAMSUNG SpinPoint T Series HD501LJ - to rebuild the array one drive at a time. so i would like to know if you had any compatibility issues with that drive. ive already ordered the drives so im pushing my luck. i ran into this thread after ordering...
any help would be appreciated
