DVR-115 dead?

Last night when I booted up my computer, I got stopped in the BIOS with a message that IDE2 slave SMART status indicates drive failure is imminent. This is my Pioneer drive. I noticed that in the BIOS where it detects the drives, instead of listing the Pioneer there are a bunch of crosses, and the drive doesn’t show up in Windows at all.

I have tried it on a different IDE channel (where another drive works fine) and it’s the same thing.

So is the drive dead?

Just on the off-chance, you tried a different IDE cable? You never know…:slight_smile:

No, I switched the same cable to a different IDE slot. I will try a different cable tonight. Maybe it will work! :slight_smile: But the master on the same cable still works so I don’t know… :confused:
