Re: SFS problem with FastATA MK-III and 160GB drive

Subject: Re: SFS problem with FastATA MK-III and 160GB drive

I have successfully used SFS with no problems on a 320GB hard drive connected to a CSPPC on a SCSI-IDE bridge, but the FastATA is causing grief.

SFSFormat reports no errors, but some of the partitions (up to 50GB in size) above 8GB have errors when using SFSCheck, and with these errors the partition remains uninitialized. Formatting one partition sometimes causes another to have errors:
Sorry, I can't help, but you are not the only one with such problems with FastATA. Another user had the same problems, but unlike you not only with SFS, he had them with FFS as well, and no matter what he changed (HDs, cables, settings in the FastATA config, he even tried using PIO0) made it work.
In the end he replaced the FastATA hard- and software with IDEFix, that way he can't use the complete HDs (IIRC he has 2 160 GB ones as well, but since IDEFix doesn't support LBA48 only the first 128 GB can be used), but at least he can use a large part of his HDs without problems now.
