I just moved from Germany to the USA. I packed all my HDs in anti-static bubblewrap and into a pelican case.
Re-assembled my PC on arrival. All was well (or so I thought).
It seems that I have two drives that, when reading from them, the PC hard freezes. No blue screen, no debugging dump when I reboot..
One drive stores music, and a tip off is that it stutters, it seems the drive has trouble serving up an MP3, and eventually, after enough reads, the machine freezes.
I have tried 3 different SMART monitors, all say the drives are fine.. even after they lock up my pc.
Does this sound drive related or controller related? Any diagnostics I can run to isolate the issue?
