1TB WD Hard Drive Problem

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I need help with the problem i am currently facing.

I have 1TB internal drive with 3 partitions but only 2 work properly. Windows 7 can see them all fine but when i access partition name Music it freezes.

I had this drive in my old pc running dual core amd processor. I hardly use this drive so i decided to use this drive on my new pc that already has 250gb SSD and 1TB drive.

I started noticing issues when i tried to copy some more music 40gb, at first windows said 12 mins with 64mb write speed but minute later it stopped showing remaining time but time did show it said 20 hours, write speed was then showing as 1.98mb.

I can access other 2 partitions on same drive but only one is giving me problem.

I tried running error check but that failed, tried formatting using windows it says that due to I/O device cannot be formatted. I tried using partition manager various they all fail but active kill worked but access that partition was still a problem. I then use gparted to delete the partition and formatted it. Now i can even formatnusing windows but drive is slow at writing and reading. I am not what to do. Shall i format the whole drive and use just one partiton? Not bothered about data i have that backed up. Any suggestions.

Thanks


Edit: Just ran HD Tune Pro: I am getting Ultra DMA CRC Error Count.

Warning is: Number of interface communication errors:345004 and Status: There were communication errors. This May be caused by a damaged cable.

Change the cable

If that doesn't work, change the slot

If neither work, run a hard disk utility (WD Data Lifeguard) to check SMART data or to run a diagnostic test.

If neither of those work and drive info looks fine, run a CHKDSK in the CMD in Windows.

If drive shows bad sectors, post up a screenshot.

Defraggler (google the program) has a simple way to read drive health within Windows....I would try that first, just to get a summary view.

Thanks Silvergoat

I have swapped SATA cable from DVD drive to Hard drive that was giving me problems. It looks like drive is working fine i just copied 40gb worth of data it took 11 mins in total at 60MB/s. Before it was stopped after couple of mins and speed went down to 1.8MB/s. It looks like it was the sata cable i was using.

I will buying new SATA cable for my DVD ROM that i am using for Hardrive that was problematic.

I ran HD Tune PRo again. My drive is working fine now but it still says that this may be caused due to damaged cable.

I dont understand can i ignore this if drive is writing and reading properly with freezing.

Yes, the smart attributes cant be resetted, if the CRC error number stayed the same then its safe to ignore it
