I have the 150 gig version

just recently one of the drives in my machine keeps spinning down and back up again ..

last night pc crashed - rebooted and no Raptor drive shown :(

pressed reset- still no Raptor

full power off and back on - Raptor re-appeared

same thing happened this morning

ran fitness test and it passed ...

any ideas please ?

thanks :) will try that

actually re-inserted the SATA cable this morning and haven't had the problem since

is that a common problem them if not in quite properly ? The SATA cables aren't the most robust !

thanks for the reply

mmm - not sure if it is related or not ...

but I moved my Optical Plextor DVD-writer from the on-bard Intel SATA to on-board JMicron ...

haven't heard a spin-down since (needs more time though) and HDD seems a lot snappier ..

mmm

I'm not sure having an Optical drive on a SATA setup set to ACHI doesn't cause problems ...
