7725Problem With Drives Being Recognized After Reboot
- Feb 24, 2009I will try to make this short and preface this that I am new "new" to
Linux but do not work with it daily so talk slowly. I have two 120 GB
disks on ports 1 and 2, both in different USB enclosures. My NSLU2 is
running Unslung Beta 6.10 along with Twonky Media Center. I have
"Unslinged" to the disk 2. If it matters, the Twonky database and such
is all on Disk 1.
Everything worked fine for two or three months (last fall) when I
re-did everything and upgraded from 6.8. However, I shut down the
NSLU2 for a few months as I was not using it and last week I restarted
it and Disk 1 on Port 1 then showed "Not Formatted".
I tried to get it to work to no avail. I finally cracked the drive
case, switched the Hard Drive jumper from Cable Select to Master, and
it worked! Left it running for a few days, no issues. I shut it down
for about three days, came back yesterday, and now Disk 1 says "Not
installed"? What is going on?
I have not had a chance to go back and change the jumper, but honestly
would like to know more about what is going on before I start messing
with the drive. Any ideas? I have had issues like this in the past
where the initial start after a long period of downtime forces a
restart, but that normally fixes it. I just want it to work when I
need it to, and any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
