General Chat / Re: New problem (3TB ext drive and new enclosure)
« on: March 31, 2015, 03:58:36 PM »
Well, the weird thing is that after I initialized the drive in windows virtual disk management console and copied files to it then took it out it worked in the same connections types I tried before. So I am confused. It's ok for now. What I am thinking is that the original way the drive was prepared with the original Western Digital enclosure hardware is the problem.

I think PirateBay is doing this to hide the source server.

The original file was copied to my portable drive with another computer on USB 2.0 and the teracopy app verified that as good.

Thanks for the reply. This is the enclosure http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J61Y24E/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
And it does not need any software to run. Windows 7 finds driver.

Mystery solved! Now that I have the flu I had some time to troubleshoot this problem. My pc was overclocked just a tiny bit too much and it was causing errors (probably the cheap USB3 controller I got on dx.com cant handle the faster overclocked speeds). I had my FSB at 422 for many years giving my pc 3.6 ghz and ram was at 844mhz. I lowered it to 418 which gives me 3.57 ghz. I have no issues with the 422 with anything else that's why I had it running like that since 2008. BTW. Cpu is Core2quad q9550s (65w TDP)  mobo Asus p5q-em 4 sticks of 2 gb corsair 800 mhz ddr2 ram.

I have no problems copying or verifying small files. it only has a problem with huge ones.
Maybe this md5 app is faulty?

No. 2 brand new drives, both are usb 3. First is a WD Passport Ultra 2tb, second is a WD Green 3 TB that I posted about a while back that I put in a new enclosure that I had to use the GPT partition system. I would like to get some kind of a file copy app that does md5 hash checking and isnt one of the ones I mentioned in the post above. Oh this morning right after I posted here I booted up my Linux mint and did a copy from one drive to the other then booted up windows 7 and did a md5 hash check and still had errors. I tested both drives and checked SMART data and no errors at all.

It seems simple but I cannot get the copied file to match my md5 hash. So far I tried it multiple ways to copy the file. I tried Terra Copy, Total Commander and the conventional windows 7 copy function. I cannot match the md5 of original hash to certify that the copy was exact.

Any Ideas?

I just happen to visit piratebay a few minutes ago and seen this as an error page saying piratebay host is sending error 522. They are using CloudFlare. The Cloud FLare company offers free and paid plans but is this really necessary to have even if its free? Would any of you benefit from this? I don't entirely understand 100% if something like this is worth the time to sign up and set up.

I reinstalled Mint again to get the operating systems to show in Grub but I don't like what this did. The Mint installation modified my Windows 8 hard drive to put some boot files there because if I have the Windows 8 drive disconnected Mint will not start.
Code: [Select]
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates -y
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa -y
$ sudo apt-get update
I had to type the above commands to get my GTX750TI video card working. Can someone tell me what these do that the default Mint 17.1 couldn’t?

General Chat / New problem (3TB ext drive and new enclosure)
« on: January 10, 2015, 05:54:02 PM »
So I have a WD external drive (3TB) It appeared that it died but luckily it was the enclosure electronics that died as the drive shows fine connected to a pc directly. The problem I have is that now I have a new enclosure and Win7 wants me to initialize the disk before I can use it. Both enclosures are USB3. Last time I did this long time ago with another drive it got wiped. So my question is this. Why the F I can't just swap enclosures and have the drive work normally? I have over 2TB on there and don't really want to lose all that. Is it because I am using the GUID partition type on the drive? Like I said windows is able to see the drive contents when directly connected to motherboard. I also am sure the new enclosure works as I put a 2 TB drive in and also had to initialize and the drive worked after initialization. But I don't want to initialize a a drive with over 2TB on it. I know I can copy from on to the other and then initialize and copy back but there has to be a easier way.

Ok, I got Mint 17.1 Rebecca installed and its fine but I have a question. My Ubuntu used to show my other OSes in the boot menu that shows before the rest loads. How Can I get them to show again?

What is a nice Linux distro now days? I'm totally willing to install fresh to fix this. What can you recommend that is easy to use and doent require much command line work to get it working. Also would be nice if it had all the needed software already in there like flash, media codecs and stuff. I would like to try something other than Ubuntu.
