Re: kernel errors when hda is read? Help! [solved?]



Ben,

Those round cables provide more than just different airflow. They also
provide for better electrical noise isolation because they are twisted
pair wiring inside, instead of a flat wire geometry (which is an excellent
geometry for catching and keeping electromagnetic noise).


Sounds like just the sort of problem you were having.

Well, I checked the cable, and I was running an 80-pin cable that came
with the drive.  However, just to be sure, I went out and bought one
of those $12 US Ultra-133 aerodynamic cables (they're round instead
of ribbon, to make airflow better) and put that in.  I haven't seen
any problems since.  I'll keep my fingers crossed...  and make sure
that I have a current backup! :)
