For those of you that have used the Maxtor Utility PowerMax to diagnose a drive or just to get the code to send back for replacement. I found this little pdf describing a little about the error code that it spits out. If anyone knows where I can get a full breakdown of what the different errors codes mean I would love to see it.

AC&NC | - RAID Levels
Topic: PC Hardware 10:45 pm EDT, Aug  2, 2003

I was doing a little work on one of my computers here at the house tonight. I tried to explain to someone what the different RAID levels are and wasn't doing a very good job of it. That is when I remembered this site has a very good explaination of several different types of RAID. Well I hope this explains this RAID thing to some of you and acts as a good information point for the rest of you.

] Gallagher said there are a number of advantages to
] MRAM, the first of which is that it uses magnetic—
] rather than electronic—charges to store bits of data.
] This is done by controlling the spin of captured
] electrons. According to Gallagher, this technology
] could lead to portable devices that not only can
] store more data, but also access it faster, all the
] while using less battery power.

] Also, unlike electronic memory chips, the non-volatile
] MRAM chips can retain data even when power to the device
] is turned off. That means that PCs and other computers
] could boot up immediately similar to turning on a light
] switch, Gallagher said rather than having to wait for
] software to load up. That also will save power, since a
] device does not need a constant flow of power to keep the
] data intact.

] The SFF drives, according to Seagate, will allow storage
] systems vendors to offer the same performance in about 70
] percent less rack space. Six SFF drives will be able to
] fit in a 1U form factor, Seagate says, meaning a 1U
] system can support RAID 5. The SFF drives will also
] consume about 40 percent less power and generate less
] heat than current 3.5-inch units.

] Why The Vacuum Tube?
] Before we go further, someone undoubtedly will ask,
] “Why the vacuum tube?” A quick answer would be: “The
] tube looks cool!” But the real answer does not stop
] here; there are more legends about the tube that wait
] to be unveiled.

well computers just took a step backwards, thank you Aopen. The latest line of motherboards use vacuum tubes again.
