Hello,

I have a failing (clicking noises) internal sata drive that I have connected via usb.

Using Spinrite from GRC, its able to do tasks one bit at a time without timeouts.

Using Ubuntu 9.10, is there a way to force the system to wait for a response before requesting anything else and/or read one bit at a time?

Thanks in Advance
Greg
