No info via HD Tune (SMART)?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have two WD Black 500GB drives plus another 500GB Seagate. I'm using (if I can remember correctly, can check) the AMD drivers for this motherboard for AHCI.

What drivers can I use that will allow me to see my SMART status in Windows?

Drivers shouldn't matter try Speedfan.

I did run SpeedFan but it is displaying erroneous information about SMART status when compared to pre-driver booting from a boot CD I use.

I've read up more after I posted this and it appears to be a problem with AMD's AHCI driver. When AHCI is enabled apparently you lose SMART reporting in Windows.
