Fujitsu 10 Gb failure

Fujitsu 10 Gb failure

Fujitsu 10 Gb failure

Another Fujitsu failure after 20 months use. Bios refuses to find drive. Terribly confusing, one rare occasions it could find it, but usually not. Will return it to vendor who built the PC and see if Fujitsu will replace it out of warrenty. Meantime, will replace it with a Maxtor which I have found to be quite reliable after over 3 years use.

RE: Fujitsu 10 Gb failure

This is typical of the Fujitsu MPG failures, the drive spins up, but fails to be recognised by BIOS. An impurity in a chip on the controller board causes this and the data can be recovered without swapping controller board or opening the drive in most cases.

RE: Fujitsu 10 Gb failure


I have seen many Fujitsu 10Gig drive failure (~50 drives)

I believe there is some sort of batch issue with the 10Gig drives. I would recommend not getting it replaced with another 10GIG!!
