comment Two PC's, shared power grid, can this be reasonably done?
@cybernard So you're saying a splitter like that will let you run two motherboards on one PSU?

comment Two PC's, shared power grid, can this be reasonably done?
@cybernard 7/64, fully patched. I can't find anyone who has solved the compatibility problem, I'm just interested in the data.

comment Two PC's, shared power grid, can this be reasonably done?
@cybernard I already have the latest drivers. Flashing the BIOS isn't going to solve it but could trash the array. I just want to copy the data off.

@cybernard Windows sees it but gets an error 10. Google turns up one person who got past that--but only to be stopped by another error.

Warning--it installs garbage.

comment Ethernet cable too long?
The only way to truly test a cable is push data through it. Just because it works at a lower frequency doesn't mean it works at frequency.

comment 44-pin IDE to 40-pin IDE extension
In my experience, 44 pin IDE drives are laptop drives, the last 4 pins are power. Somewhere around here I have a little circuit board that takes a 40 pin IDE and a power connector and plugs in a 44 pin IDE.

comment Why so many steps in adding new disk and what do they do?
@Celeritas Yes, the table is created at initialize--but it's empty. You then have to decide what to do with the space.

comment Why so many steps in adding new disk and what do they do?
@Celeritas The reason there are two formats is that the old format only works up to 2tb but the new format can cause compatibility issues with older stuff.

comment Why so many steps in adding new disk and what do they do?
@Celeritas MBR = Master boot record--what you create when you initialize. GUID = Globally Unique IDentifier--which has nothing to do with this.

comment Why does just splitting an Ethernet cable not work?
@AndonM.Coleman Agreed. The cards involved must have been able to tolerate it. At this was done at least 10 years ago I would think that a feature that was on some plain vanilla cards back then would be in all cards by now.

comment Computer starts for just a second and shuts down immediately
Yeah, what you are describing looks an awful lot like a power problem.

comment How to do a factory reset on a SanDisk Cruzer Blade flash drive?
@Tom: You wouldn't want to. The write counter is a safety device--it's much better to have the drive go read only than corrupt data when the cell burns out.

comment My Secondary HDD Disappeared At First, And Now Its Barely Working
@joeqwerty Or the controller is failing. I've had a drive keep flaking out--and I eventually realized it was the controller, not the drive. The drive hasn't errored since I moved it to another port, the device I put on it's port is unusable due to the errors.
