Hard Driver Problems

I have a aging Motherboard (Asus A7A266)
This MB does not natrually support Sata HD's

So as it stands I have2 HD on it
1. IDE 40GB HD.. Primary with WinXP
2. SATA Hitachi 160GB HD (Partitioned as G: and F:)

To connect it i'm using a PCI SATA Converter

and it all works nicely... boots and is visable in XP

probelm is that every so often maybe every 3rd boot XP says that it has detected corruptions on the drive.. and wants to go through a DskChk

If I go through it or not it will boot and I will be able to use the drive

IT is however very unstable

Problems are:
It frequently does a dskchk on boot up (for both partitions on the SATA Drive)

I cant installed Programs on teh SATA Drive as the will frequently not work, and files stored on thedrive are sometimes lost or corrupt

And Ideas on how I can fix the above

Use the hitachi utility to check the drive. It is on the UBCD

Also make sure your PSU is OK and powerfull enough.

the drive problems may actually be stemming from the PCI controller card. Try putting it in another slot and/or reinstalling the drivers.

I dont have a HP ScanJet 5100c scanner so the support.microsoft solution aint it

plus its on a secondary HD, my OS is on my IDE HD
but thanx anyway

The UBCD is a kick butt website... have to use that more... however the Hitachi tools dont support by HDD.. :-(  unfortunate

however I'm hetching my bets on the PCI card... so I baught a new mobo (the one installed is 7 years old and i been looking for a reason to change it)

Will let you know...

You could also try the other tools on the CD, like powermax of maxtor. It usually works with every HD brand, although sata may be a problem. You might have to try the tools inside a PC with builtin SATA.
