  1. This project is actually two years old, but despite the aging SATA standard, still current as an idea. I invite you to my shop for a short film of the "Do it yourself" series.
  2. Hello all, I hope I can ask a question about my 3Ware 9550SXU-12 SATA controller. Let me just say after purchasing it I quickly realized I should have looked for a newer card. Here's my setup: Dell Poweredge 2800, 9550SXU-12 SATA controller with 9 drives connected (3 are 3tb drives, the rest are 1tb). Since there is data already on the drives I had to set them up as JBOD because 'Single Disk' mode will wipe the drives. (I know JBOD sucks and I will be updating my drives over time and turning them into 'Single Disks' instead) I knew with the 3tb drives I would have to turn on Auto-Carve to use them, but that doesn't seem to be working as I still see them as 746gb. The main issue is with the 3 (3tb) drives I have. One of the three is recognized in Windows just fine. The other two are seen as RAW and not accessible at all. (That's why I think auto-carve isn't working because I should have 4 drives instead of 2) The drives are as follows: Working: Toshiba HDWD130 (7200 RPM, SATA III) Not working: WDC WD30EZRX-00DC0B0 and WD30EZRX-00SPEB0 (Both 5400 RPM, SATA III) My question is would RPMs on the drives be an issue that might cause something like this? Other than the manufacturer, that's the only difference between them. Any help on this would be appreciated immensely Russ K
  3. Sorry this post was added by mistake and I don't know how to delete it.
  4. I have read that SAS RAID card can work with SATA drives (not the other way around). I just want to know if anybody have tried to plug SATA drives on a SAS RAID card (e.g. Dell XM768) ? If they do work, is there any limitation (e.g. can we combine SAS and SATA drives in array) ? or any recommendation a good card for 8 SATA/SAS drives ? Thanks,
  5. I need a two port SATA RAID controller for a pair of SSDs with only one requirement: mirror two OS & applications containing SSDs or HDDs and not crash the OS when one fails. Reliability and price are the main considerations. Hot-swapping is not a requirement (overkill), neither is speed an issue because system is already more than adequate to the task. Thanks.
  6. I would like to use SSDs on my old laptop. My laptop is E300-AP55K (LG). producted in Jan. 2008. (Intel / T5750 (2.0GHz) / 1280x800 / 2GB / DVD recorder / AMD(ATI) / 1.97Kg / 6cell / HDMI / D-SUB / webcam / USB 2.0 /IEEE1394 / Express card / Multi-card reader / HDMI / 1.3M WEB CAMERA / Hybrid 256MB / Windows Vista Peculiarity: Providing SATA1, TOSHIBA MK1665GSX 160.0 GB (SATA2) was installed, Southbridge of mainboard: SB600, No AHCI option in BIOS) Apart from everything else, I am curious whether I can connect SSDs to my laptop at least physically. You may see my laptop and HDD. My HDD is just put down on the laptop and connected. To remove the HDD, we just raise it up. However, SSDs like TOSHIBA Q Series Pro (my HDD is of TOSHIBA) have some part that can be inserted to connectors. My HDD has no such part. Is it possible to use SSDs on my laptop?
