|I have A hard drive that I've had for about 12 years, and there is nothing wrong with it. I have used it in several different computers and it has never crashed, yet every time I install it on a modern computer it says smart card reports possible hard drive failure, which is bogus because the hard drive doesn't have a smart card, it's old and came out before hard drives had smart cards built in. |
It's only a 6gig drive I call it old reliable because I have never had a problem with it, no data loss or anything. And I'm almost 100 percent sure that there still isn't anything wrong with the drive. But I get that smart card error every time during boot up on my test computer.
So I'm wondering if it is just bogus or do I have a real problem, the drive really does not have a smart card at all, how it reports having one I don't know.
