Welcome to IWETHEY!

New How about another track.
I assume this is related to your music collection. I gather that you're having power issues with Mike's external drive (no brick at prsent).

Does your 6th drive need to be internal? How about a [link|http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817146312|Kingwin] external enclosure ($24+$5 shipping). I'm using one of those with a 300 GB Seagate with my work PC (Asus Athlon64 3000+ with an SATA RAID mirror, 120 GB IDE internal, 300 GB IDE internal, 120 GB IDE external (with portable rack-mounted drives) and the 300 GB Seagate IDE external). It works fine. The enclosure's side panels are a little flimsy, but does have a small fan that most of the cheaper enclosures lack.

Your time might be worth more than $30. :-)

If you don't want to spend the money on more hardware, I'd suggest checking to see if later drivers exist for the new controller card if you haven't done so already.

HTH. Good luck!

New Tried all those..and have a Seagate External
in addition to the graciousness of one yendor to help recreate the lost.

I wanted to stuff the new machine with drives...and use a drive caddy with 300G internals to use as backup. Slide it in, copy the files, slide out and put away.

The caddy is on the secondary interface of the MB controller. Works fine. Its just when I add a second drive to the "new" controller that it decides to crap out. I'm thinking it might be because the controller decides it wants to go RAID even though I haven't set it up for that.

Going to spend 20 on a controller from a different company and see if that solves it. In the interim I'm settling for leaving the machine with 750G of internal storage+the 300 external. Thats enough for now.

Essentially, I've designated this as a project to be dealt with later.

New Later as in...
...after the Stillers get whooped in SBXL?

New Later than that even :-)
Have a trip next week and won't be messing with it much. Too much other stuff to do and not enough of a pressing need (there's plenty of space for now)

New Power supply problems?
Mebbe in safe mode, the drives don't come racing all up at the same time (you know...a couple of extra diags are run on the drives or drivers before hitting the next one?). You might just be sucking a little too much current/voltage/juice/cosmic karma all at once in normal mode. You got a beefier power supply you could try?

should be plenty, I would think.

That thought did cross my mind though.

New Depending on the box, it might be marginal.

New When I get back I'll let you know
It was a bones system at the local shop...bought for the size of the case and its ability to house drives.

Hard drive expense is currently 100 more that the initial machine cost (320 with dvd burner and 256 more memory...upgrades from the 275 initial tag).
