    Hard drive problems

    I updated to 10.04 a couple of days ago, I only started getting this problem today.

    After a very short amount of time being logged in, 2 of my hard drives stop working. I have 5 750GB hard drives, 1 has / and swap on it, the others are for data, but I am only using the first to at the moment. Nautilus shows no files in these 2 hard drives, but the other 2 are fine, as is the system disk. Here's what I'm getting in dmesg over and over again...

    Code:
    [ 2377.833672] end_request: I/O error, dev sdb, sector 4007
    [ 2377.833689] sd 9:0:0:0: [sdb] Unhandled error code

    I have tried unmounting and remounting the drives, but I cannot remount:

    Code:
    mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
           missing codepage or helper program, or other error
           In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
           dmesg | tail  or so
    and in dmesg:

    Code:
    [ 2840.396365] sd 10:0:0:0: [sdc] Unhandled error code
    [ 2840.396367] sd 10:0:0:0: [sdc] Result: hostbyte=DID_BAD_TARGET driverbyte=DRIVER_OK

    [ 2840.396375] end_request: I/O error, dev sdc, sector 65
    [ 2840.396381] EXT3-fs: unable to read superblock
    I'm running 64-bit 10.04 with Core 2 Quad @ 2.66GHz, 4GB memeory, nVidia (yes, I know) motherboard.

    These drives have a lot of data on them, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    EDIT: Kernel is 2.6.32-21-generic. Will try with an earlier version and report back.

    EDIT 2: Tried mounting with 'sync' option, appears to have fixed it. I think there maky have been a conflict between the OS and disk buffering or something, but sync mode is working, just as fast as before at the cost of a little CPU. Can we keep the thread open, just in case something happens? Thanks.

    EDIT 3: Nope, It's just broken again. slightly different dmesg. Any help?

    Re: Hard drive problems

    Try using gsmartcontrol (you may need to install it) or some similar utility to check your drives' SMART data. (This is information on drive health that's maintained by the drives themselves.) It's conceivable that your drives are going bad. If two of them are going bad, I'd suspect overheating, but it could be just plain bad luck. If necessary, use the gsmartcontrol utility to run full checks on the disks (this can take a while).

    Another possibility is bad or loose cables, so check that.

    Re: Hard drive problems

    I found this thread looking to solve what appears to be an extremely similar if not identical problem. Upgraded to Lucid a couple weeks ago and just started having problems with two of the three drives forming a RAID5 array. They'll work fine for a while, then apparently "die." dmesg gets spammed with the following:

    Code:
    [ 8348.775260] sd 5:0:0:0: [sdc] Unhandled error code
    [ 8348.775263] sd 5:0:0:0: [sdc] Result: hostbyte=DID_BAD_TARGET driverbyte=DRIVER_OK

    These are three identical 2.0 TB drives, not six months old. Running kernel 2.6.32-22.

    Re: Hard drive problems

    Had a third, different drive "fail" yesterday. My USB mouse and keyboard also randomly locked up. This is definitely not a hardware issue.

    I read somewhere (can't remember where, sorry) that it might have something to do with an Nvidia SATA controller sharing an IRQ with one of the USB controllers. This hasn't been an issue until upgrading kernel 2.6.31 or .32 (can't recall which was running when the problem first began occurring). My guess is that something was changed in the APIC code.

    At any rate, I added 'noapic' to my kernel boot line in grub, and the error hasn't recurred since, though obviously a few days need to pass before any reliable conclusion can be reached.

    Re: Hard drive problems

    Installed Lucid couple of days ago..Apparently, I've the same problem

    Had the problem -also on Lucid- before now on the same Laptop model -Toshiba NB205- before it was stolen...So I'm guessing it's not a hardware problem

    The problem:

    While working the HDD light flicks as usual...but randomly, sometimes CPU is heavily loaded other times the system is ideal >

    The screen freezes..while the mouse still moves without having any effect to it's input..Shortly after the cursor stops and I am left with no option but to hardreset the system...

    Plz Help
