I recently bought a couple of 300GB VelociRaptor drives and tried to test them out. The long and short of it is:
The drives test fine under WinDLG but fail the quick or extended test under the DOS version with the same error which is.
Missing Test Tracks
** Error/Status Code: 0229.**
I thought something was wrong with the DOS version of the test, but I took the same test to an old Dell computer with EIDE drives, expecting it to die the same way and it tested out those drive OK!
According to the download software page for VelociRaptors this test should work.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance to all who reply!
