Can anyone give me feedbacks on SATA drives, are these drives already reliable as ATA or SCSI?
I'm currently using one but everytime I start copying big file to it, its reseting my connection. Checked already my network connection and its working OK. tested copying on an ATA drive and did not encounter any problem.
sata drives are a fairly new technology,manufactures like dell,hp etc are only staring to move away from the standard ata and are now implementing sata drive into there pcs,so it may still be quite a while before we know how reliable these drives are.
in saying all of this the only real differance between sata and pata
is there interface and the data transfer speed,
in relation to scsi,scsi would be more reliable and faster,mainly used in raid configurations in servers,
i have been using a sata drive for the last 5months and have had no problems,"tip wood"
mainly for backing up dvds across the network
10gig at any time
have you install the latest chipset drivers that came with ur pcs motherboard or did u let windows try and detect the harddrive,
just a thought!
