Thinking my lousy performance on some of my drives may be my 1m sata cables or the cheap caddys I have the drives in.

Would like to see what error rate I am getting, but the few tools I have tried to get smart data have failed on me.

Its running in IDE emulation mode if it matters.

Any suggestions?

Bad quality sata cables can definitely have a negative effect in my experience. Not sure about the effect of length, 1m sounds pretty high and may be an issue.

Tried It's pretty damn good. I've been using it fairly religiously since finding it, and had a few emails back and forth with the developer about getting chipsets supported etc.

All looks good in there, but it does show the acoustic performance on these green drives is set to bad performance but quiet, wont let me change it to the other end of the scale to see if it helps, the dialog recommends the dos tool which is pretty useless to be honest.

Any ideas on something that can change it, that may be the source of the lousy performance.

richms: That's usually changed in the BIOS.

I hate you.
