Re: general device failure

Subject: Re: general device failure
by joerg on 2008/5/4 23:36:40


I am using latest SFS (1.279) on my A1 and I am getting error messages like this one regularly now, when downloading 30Mo of zip archives :

"Volume 'Docs' (Docs: sii0680ide.device, unit 0)

there was an error while accessing this volume:

general device failure.
The disk is in an unreadable format.

errorcode = 20
io_command = 4
io_offset = -502986240
io_length = 0
io_actual = 7"

Is my HD dying ?
Could be. Or a bad cable or anything else. Unfortunately sii0680ide.device returns error code 20 for everything and without additional information it's impossible to know what the actual problem was. When it happens again check if there is debug output from it with "C:DumpDebugBuffer >ram:debugoutput", but it could be that the device drivers only print something if the debuglevel (os4_commandline) isn't 0.
