I already got this bridge based on JMicron - http://www.vantecusa.com/en/product/view_detail/383 Now just looking for a suitable 120GB drive (Due to the 137GB limit of the patched bios). One thing is that I won¨t be able to TRIM the drive if needed....maybe only with hdparm tool

  3. Greetings all, In near future I would like to migrate my system from a standart HDD to a SSD.I already got a SATA/IDE bridge (JMicron) and Im looking for a suitable SSD. Does anybody did this already and can share some experience if there are some problems and so on, performance etc.. Thanks for advices !
  4. Under WinXP, the Checkdisk has some option like this as I checked.I dig also the MDGx site for some info and atleast I have turned the Autoscan=0 in MSDOS.SYS to turn it off.
  5. Hi All, does anybody remember how to exclude a specific drive from scanning via scandisk during bootup? Thanks for help Comos
  6. Im back in action after some time on commissiong.During that time I investigated,that this issue seems to have something in common with my NOD32 AV. First before connecting a USB HDD when I turn off the resident filesystem protection, the drive connects okay, then I turn the protection on and everything is working fine. Gotta clarify this issue with ESET's technical support.
  7. Well I haven't do that now, because now Im out of my country for a month.What do you want to exactly proceed with? Today it happen again.I clicked on the disk, led started to blink that the directory structure was loading few blinks and then nothing....**** !!!
  8. Sure no problem. Better backup it on a external HDD due to it's size.
  9. Hi everyone, today I have installed the last unofficial service pack for my Win98SE, but somehow after the reboot, the color of the arrow inside the shortcut icons changed to light blue. I checked the registry and TweakUI if there is a key where to change this,but I havent found any clue. Any idea how to get rid of this and change it back to black?
  10. Yep, the laptop I use @ work and also @ home.For work, there is WinXP SP3 EN installed from the company with some restrictions.So in ultrabay I have my WinXP SP3 CZ. Booting order I change easily during start.I have mention,that this issue isn't from the begining.It happend from one day,then occasionaly, maybe after some OS update?
  11. This I have to check out.It's interesting that this didin't happen on my second WinXP SP3 EN system that I have @ work on the same laptop.
  12. Does that mean that most partitions, or the biggest partition of that precise HDD are NTFS or that it happens with all or almost all HDDs, but more often with NTFS formatted HDDs ??? This happens mostly with my 1TB WD and 3TB WD HDD on NTFS but also when I plug other that had NTFS and more than 500GB size as I tested.All of them had one big partition.I have also one 320GB & 500GB drive on FAT32 and these are okay.
  13. Hi everyone, For some time I noticed, that when pluging a USB HDD mostly NTFS formatted, that my system partly locks up.Then Im unable to close any aplication, switch between apl is possible, task manager doesn't work, system tray is not accesible. All what I can do is hard reset.When I restart the system with the USB drive already plugged in then in most cases it's okay.Sometimes this issue happends when I tried to access a folder on that drive, however the filesystem is okay. Doesn't matter if the drive has a external PSU or if is it powered from the USB.The machine is Lenovo ThinkPad W500. Any idea?
  14. The Paragon's NTFS has a driver that is started everytime when you boot OS.It is not needed to start the main application evetytime.This is tested with my 1TB WD My Passport Portable.However when pluging the 3T drive, I can see the drive in the system, If I try to access the drive it prompts invalid media or something like this. So in the first case I opened the main Paragon NTFS aplication, the system freezed during the drive detection.The second try I did when first opening the main aplication,connnect the drive, nothing happened even during the drive refresh.After when I closed the manin apl. and opened it again, the system reset itself hard. Then I give up
  15. Today I plug it on my Win98SE, but I wasn't able to see any content of the drive.When I start the Paragon NTFS, the system once freezed and during my second try it commit to reset. So maybe a cluster size issue under this tool?
  16. Under Win98SE I can test it.The Paragon's NTFS I have there.
  17. Somebody on that forum mentioned, when you will take out the drive from the enclousure and connect it directly on the sata cable,you won't be able to read anything, it would be raw data.But anyway if I count right it would be possible to upgrade this enclousure up to 16TB HDD drive when such drives are available.
  18. It sure does!!! BTW, since you're the 1st to get it, for the time being, *do* *not* reformat nor repartition it. I'd sure like to look at its first 8kiB, starting from LBA0. Would you kindly get a copy of that with an hexeditor, zip and attach the resulting binary image? TIA. Sure WDMBE3T.ZIP
  19. (Info added July, 2019): This solution also works for 10TB WD EasyStore external USB disks. (Info added in Oct, 2018): Problem solved by (who else?) @Comos, of course!!! The newer GPT formatted WD My Book and My Passport external USB disks can be reformatted by using the WD Quick Formatter, http://download.wdc.com/misc/WD_Quick_Formatter_Win_1_2_0_10.zip. Then they become visible to XP (and report 4KiB sectors, too)!!! Warning (added in 2017): This applies solely to USB 3.0 WD My Book Essential and WD My Book Disks manufactured before 2015 (which report as 4Kn)! Later Disks report as 512e, use GPT and, hence, are not usable by XP! Hi everyone, as I started a discussion about an issue when running a 3TB HDD on WinXP 32bit in a USB 3.5" drive enclousure, link: today ,I can confirm, that a external USB HDD from WD, currently 3TB My Book Essential does have full capacity support on Win XP 32bit. (maybe in Win Y2K also) Today I have bought it and have 3TB in full armor Seems that the additional WD HW logic takes care of the rest and the related links were speaking the truth: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/itproxpsp/thread/8fd33944-0202-4dff-a432-356e2b231f2e/ http://community.wdc.com/t5/External-Drives-for-PC/Exceeding-2Tb-limit-questions/td-p/234694 message to @dencorso: The light has been kindled !
  20. I have no clue and no desire to spend time loading all the different versions to find out as this would be an exercise in futility. Besides, the issue not the "missing functions which are irrelevant to the OS in question based on WinAMP code that obviously check for the OS in question and acts accordingly".Function Dependencies ONLY MATTER when a given Not-OS Program is installed and "fails". Check out KernelEX project, OK? There is ALWAYS a "limit" to what an OS can do for a Program that is normally NOT supported by the OS, even for the KernelEX Project! Im aware about the KernelEX Project, great work !
  21. 128GB/137GB is the BIOS limit. I used the external HDD. It's not used for booting, and it's on a controller card.But rloew brought up a good point. Some write actions can be done before Windows booting completes, and those might use BIOS functions. Even if the OS partition fits within the BIOS detected size, I actually do have an additional software partition that doesn't. If only the BIOS treated the HDD as 128GB, or even 10-20GB, that'd be enough, but 8GB is very borderline. Too bad there's no 128GB clamp jumper on the drive. I might solve the problem by doing more HDD rotations than I anticipated. :-/ For a boot drive?! Nope, not for a boot drive.
  22. Yes it does work.I was only curious why , when example the same program have on Win98SE all functions okay, where is the huge difference.
