Norco Update [Jan. 13th, 2007|09:56 pm]

Update on my previous failure at getting the Norco DS-1220 to work....

It works now.

Turns out it was the disks. Before I bought a bunch of disks for it I was trying it with some old disks I had around figuring, "fuck, SATA's SATA, right?". Turns out old SATA disks can't do hot-plug? Maybe? But even cold plug I think failed? Maybe multiple of my old disks are bad? Who knows.

But I bought a new 500 GB disk today after a dude on a mailing list said that it worked for him, and sure enough... no problem. Disk works hot-plugging between either direct or port-multiplier bays.

So then I went back to buy 4 more but they were out.

Yeah, I saw your post to linux-ide.
My enclosure has 5x Seagate 320Gb (same generation at your 500Gb drive).

I never tested with other drives, so I wasn't aware of that problem, sorry.
