I have revived yet another SE30. The HDD, however (Quantum Prodrive 80S) is throwing errors. I thought that a Lido format would find and reallocate bad blocks, but it does not seem to be doing that. So I tried the "Overnight Test" in the Lido software, hoping to do just that. However, it seems to be giving up after 100 errors have been found. Would anyone have a suggestion ? I could replace the HDD of course, but would prefer of course to keep the original, even if that means reducing the capacity a bit. Thanks in advance.
The drive won't eject when the button is pressed, nor will it eject when dragging a disk to the trash. When I try the drag to trash method, the GS/OS appears to unmount the disk, but the disk drive will still show disk activity (light cycles on for a few seconds, then off, then back on), and the computer seems to freeze up until the disk is manually ejected. I've tried this disk drive on two different IIGS computers with the same result. It has been maybe a year since I last used this disk drive, and it was known working the last time I used it. It reads and writes fine, just has the weird issue with the auto eject mechanism not responding. Any ideas what could be causing the problem?
