Major Bummer

Saturday night I was playin ut with a few friends, game was running real smooth then all the sudden it got slower and slower then finally my rig just shutdown. Now how it is possible that a master and slave harddrive take a crap all at the same time. I have 2 maxtors, 300gig. Now all they do is churp at me and do not spin. Bummer is, one of them was my data drive and now everything Ive saved over the last 9 years are gone.


Im so freakin bummed. I had pics of my late girlfriend and cat, all gone now :(

I also lost years of UT maps, custom skins ( one that Dan made for me ) and lots of things that cannot be replaced. What sucks worse is Maxtor's site is messing with me so I cannot view any warrentee stuff for these drives. There just over a year old ( refurbished, of course ) :evil:

I shoulda knowm something was up, my boot time for this rig was gettin a bit slow ( now with a new HD in it, 9 seconds is all it takes now.

How can 2 drives fry at the same time?

well an over abundance of gay porn will cause drives to fail when paired up on the same cable

dude all i can say is really i feel for ya that happen to me and the drive was full and it was an 160 anyway

if there is anything i can do to help replenish lost items let me know and i can get it over to ya

Well, I was re downloading some goodys that you posted but that site refuses to let me DL anything more because it says my IPs still downloading a file ( yes, Ive deleted cookies, restarted both computers (( I use one here as a server)) so I dunno what the deal is.

I may still have that skin on my archive drive.

Do you have good cooling on your rig? Drives fail most often due to bearing wear or heat. Excessive vibration could maybe cause trouble too.

If you are looking for anything yell and I'll look too.

good point strider. Cooling was a problem on my pc even when I installed a cooling system on my GPU.

It's hard to believe both drives going bad at the same time. I would take both drives out and attach them as a slave in another computer if you have one available. If you can't access your data, I guess they are fried. Before you do all that though, I'd go into my bios and load default settings, just to make sure you don't have corruption. Check your HD connections as well. I do feel you straycat.....i don't have anything backed up either. If all is lost, I can replace alot of your software if you need it.

Both drives churp and clunk, damn its hard to explane. Ive never heard any drives do this. They do not spin.....

I found it hard to believe myself but they do the same on 2 different computers. Damn, I hate Maxtor.......

Alot of the softwear I had were cracked, like 3dmark and other apps. Pics I could never replace, damn Im bummed. 4 gigs of UT stuff, maps, skins, mods for server ect ect ect. Ohh, did I mention I hate Maxtor......

I'll take whatcha have to offer though, and thank you.


I did mention that my bootup times were getting longer and longer. System would not boot up at all with the master drive in it. Reformatted with a new 320gig drive and it runs like a dream again. boot time, 9 seconds...

ok here we go this might be a long one lol Data wise you might want to try to get a drive of the same size and make and model and try to switch the board out this might enable for you to one time run a recovery on them if you lucky easy recovery pro should do the trick if the drive will post once but that dose mean that you might be screwing up a perfectly good drive in the process so then it is a matter of much you want that data........LOL.........

I have your skin No worriers there I also have a lot of the old school ut99 stuff that you had for sure maps that you love and then some................ you know me I have over 40 gigs of 99 stuff still.... lol........the Bad part is I'm up to over 40 gigs in 04 stuff as well now lol and climbing fast with ut3 as well....................
