I have a problem reading the smart value of a drive in the Sharkoon 5-bay RAID Box with the Scanner.
This is a known problem with this enclosure but maybe one that could be solved.
With this 5 bay enclosure http://www.sharkoon....1689/11353#descthe smart values of the HDD in the highest slot can't be read.
It doesn't matter if you populate all slots in which case slot number 1 doesn't pass anything or if you just populate the bottom 2 in which case slot number 4 doesn't pass the values.
At least this was the case till today.
I had never tried Hard Disk Sentinel before and so far it is the only tool that got me the values from the top most drive.
Scanner v 126.96.36.19903 BETA
HD: SAMSUNG HD204UI
Controller Card: Marvell 92xx SATA 6G Controller (AHCI) [VEN: 1B4B, DEV: 9230] Version: 188.8.131.527, 6-6-2012
Enclosure Side: JMICRON RAID #6/1 [14-0]
It is connected via eSata and set to Clear Raid mode, so every drive is directly accessible.
If HD Sentinel can do it, i am sure Scanner will be able, too.
I tried the direct I/O test, was happy to see this
and unhappy to see this
The only specific method that gave me anything was "ScsiMiniportClassDriver" where i got this in the Direct I/O section
The values are messed up but at least it is something.
What are my next steps to figure this out / help to get this working?
