Hi everybody,
I tried a different motherboard in my PC and and I get extremely slow write speed in MHDD.
Also checked Data Lifeguard Diagnostics' full erase and from the remaining time shown I gather that the speed is normal, so the problem is encountered in MHDD only. Read scan (verify using F4) runs at normal speed. Erasing in Windows goes without speed issues either.
The motheboard has Intel G31 + ICH7 chipset. What do you think the problem is?

Thanks for your reply, but the solution was different.
It is really funny, but after I loaded optimized defaults, the issue got fixed. But which settings were incorrect is still a mystery.
Unfortunately MHDD, not being developed further, is getting more and more outdated. Lately I experimented with 2 new mobos, MHDD couldn't see the controller the hdd was attached to.
MHDD :rip:

Try IDE/Compatible mode ...

Or buy PC-3000 ! At least MHDD is free.

Spildit, you keep posting things, that don't help me at all. If it wouldn't be too much of a bother (I bet it would), could you stay away from my topics?

Ok ...

Ask here - http://www.hpwlab.com/hdd/forum.php - they will help you out !

Also did you read what i did post ?

Try IDE/Compatible mode so that MHDD can detect your drives ?

Well, nevermind.

Translator, Defect Lists and Bad Sectors :

If the drive have just a few bad sectors you can re-map them (swap by spares) by adding those sectors to G-List.

If the drive have huge amount of bad sectors ..... nothing to do. Well, you can still self-scan the drive, run ARCO, run BURN, etc .... depending on the drive but .... it will get some extra life out of the dying drive and it will die anyway so trash it and buy new drive.

I have 20,000pcs and will use in game consul (not in pc) but still must be pass Sentinel software,
I used Blanco to remap the sector and it show all pass and good,but when i test with Seitial software show low health and bad sector.

Sell those drives for parts on ebay like used - damaged.

Maybe someone can still use the drives for data recovery like using the PCB, etc ...
