External Hard Drive Cyclical Reduncancy Check Intermittent Problem
Posted on 2012-03-11
I have a Verbatim CLON 500 GB External Hard Drive that doesn't work on one computer.
The computer is a Dell Latitude E6510 running Windows 7 x64. It's a drive that's been used for backup. I just replaced the Latitude hard disk due to a failed drive with a disk sent from Dell with Windows preloaded.
Since I have gotten the new Latitude drive, I haven't been able to read the Verbatim in the Latitude. When the drive is plugged in Windows 7 recognizes it but asks to format it. When I close that Window it tells me that there is a Data Error with the drive (Cyclical Redundancy Check). I can plug this Verbatim drive into any one of 4 other computers (3 XP one Windows 7) without any trouble at all. I can also read a Winbook hard drive in the Latitude.
At this point I'm going to try to copy all of the files off of the Verbatim and reformat it. Could this be a driver issue with the Latitude? I haven't been able to find anything indicating that.
I'd like to avoid that and correct the problem so that the Latitude can read this.
