    "Division Overflow Error!" in SpinRite on brand new Sams

    I guess I should. Can't say I'm a great believer in SpinRite. Ran Samsungs own HUTIL and there was no problems reported. Did a surface scan of the entire hdd. Same with HD Tune error scan, no errors. If anybody is interested in a possible solution though... Download and burn a WIN98 boot CD from this .iso: http://www.allbootdisks.com/downloads/ISO/...98_bootdisk.iso Boot from the CD and when you're at the DOS prompt insert the SpinRite CD and change dir to the optical drive with the cd command and type "spinrite" to run spinrite. Hopefully it works.
  2. There seems to be about 20 hits on google on this error code. If anything, I guess I could feel special. I just received this disk and it's a Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB HD103UJ. Any idea on what it means? Does anybody know if this is a seriously faulty HDD or is something wrong with the software? Division overflow sounds like a program error, but who am I to judge?
