Hard Disc on Iyonix

The hard disc on my Iyonix has started to produce 'Disc error 13
at ...' messages. I need to purchase a replacement drive of the same
or similar type so that I can have them both connected at the same
time to copy stuff from the original to the new drive. What is it that
I should purchase please?

DIscKnight gives the map a clean bill so I'll do nothing to the
existing HDD until I've copied it all off (and made a backup first).

Disknight checks the directory structure. To find disc errors you need
to *verify

This type of error may also be due to the power supply going off.

IME this error is very often due to the power supply going off.

I've had disc errors like this very regularly over the last few years. I'm
still using the same disc (which has also been transplanted several times
into a RPC without any problems or errors) and now that I've got a stable
PSU in the Iyonix I no longer see the errors.

As others have said it is worth checking the PSU.

Which ever it is we have stocks of suitable hard drives and PSUs!

If you can't work out which is the problem we could hire you both with you
returning the unneaded part and pay for the kept part!

n.b. not all ATX PSUs are quiet or suitable for an Iyonix, most IDE hard
drives are o.k. but all!

I think it is, my Iyonix gave the same error message last week, when I 
acccidently turned it off by putting my foot on the rocker switch on 
my surge protector, turned it back on and that message appeared, but 
just ignore it and reboot properly and it doesn't come back again.

cheers
Matthew

No! Never ignore disc errors, it's the disc equivalent of a heart 
attack, it may have survived this one, but the next could mean its a gorner.

Always do a Verify (either from the drive's menu or the command line) 
and if you get any errors, then replace the disc immediately.
