I noticed the posting at: http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&threadm=20040120192745.GA1209%40uriel.mcgoldrick.org&rnum=29&prev=/groups%3Fq%3Dfreebsd%2Bstatus%253D51%2Berror%253D84%2BICRC%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26ie%3DUTF-8%26start%3D20%26sa%3DN
and was curious if a solution had been found for this problem (kernel: ad4: FAILURE - READ_DMA status=51<READ, DSC, ERROR> error=84<ICRC, ABORTED>). I have the same problem with a PCI promise Ultra100 TX2 controller card and 200GB Western Digital 2000JB drive on startup. I've double-checked that the cable, controller, and drive are all working by plugging them by accessing them through DOS and Windows 2000; the drive shows up just fine and produces flawless I/O. My drive is jumpered as single/master, set to ATA100, and the cable works just fine. I've noticed other postings with a similar error, but the only suggestion given was either controller failure or cable failure. In my case I'm certain that neither is the cause of the problem. Any ideas? ===== Rishi Chopra http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~rchopra _______________________________ Do you Yahoo!?
