about a month ago, i bought a maxtor external firewire disk. it worked great for the majority of that time. today, though, it appears to have failed quite spectacularly. my machine was hung, and after rebooting, i ran fsck on the disk, and got the following error:
(da0:sbp0:0:0:0): READ(10). CDB: 28 08 cb 24 95 0 0 1 0 (da0:sbp0:0:0:0): CAM Status: SCSI Status Error (da0:sbp0:0:0:0): SCSI Status: Check Condition (da0:sbp0:0:0:0): MEDIUM ERROR asc:4b,0 (da0:sbp0:0:0:0): Data phase error (da0:sbp0:0:0:0): Retrying Command (per Sense Data) repeated 5 times, then a bunch of fsck filesystem errors. rinse, lather, repeat, ad nauseum. my question is this: what is the most likely culprit? the kernel (5.1), the disk, the enclosure, or the firewire card (d-link dfb-a5)? has anyone had problems with any of these components? my concern is, which one needs to be replaced? the disk most certainly, but i don't want to do that and find it failing again next month. thanks for any input. -ryan clancey _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
