WD 160Gb VelociRaptor - Problem with GsmartControl

I have 13 times this drive model. And they all have the same problem when I control them with GsmartControl.

End to end failure (cache and I don’t know exactly what)

Strange? Could it be possible to upgrade the firmware or anything else? A virus?

Thank you for your assistance

Hi, unfortunately I have never used GsmartControl,lets see if another user can provide some ideas.

Lifeguard quick test FAIL
Lifeguard Extended test COMPLETE

No failure, only a message from the SMART controller…

It’s been a long time since I posted here. I had a lot of work to do.

So I’m back and I still have those all 13 Velociraptor Entreprise Storage with a Smart controller error message, but the extended test with Lifeguard is full ok.

I found something on the internet about a firmware problem, could it be possible to have the latest firmware for this Model?
