CorsairLink 2\ SierraService.exe Causing Problems with Ejecting SCSI Drive On ESATA


Recommended Posts

Found my first real dislike with the Corsair Link software. Tried to eject my ESATA drive by using the eject icon on the toolbar. Kept telling me the drive was in use by another service.


Checked the event viewer and found the following:


The application \Device\HarddiskVolume2\Program Files (x86)\Corsair\CorsairLink 2\SierraService.exe with process id 2440 stopped the removal or ejection for the device SCSI\Disk&Ven_WDC&Prod_WD1501FASS-00W2B&Rev_500.\5&19487fca&0&000000.


Is there any way to stop this from happening. Not the end of the world as I only use this drive for backups and the worst I have to do is shut down the computer. But, would prefer not to have to.


Any suggestions?

Go to services and stop the service.

What version of Windows and what version or Corsair Link are installed?


Windows 7 Pro, Corsair Link 2.2.0


I stopped Sierra2Services and that fixed the problem.


I used auto run to stop all Sierra related items from starting. This changed the Sierra2Service to disabled.


What is the best way to configure the service and software so that I can still load the software as needed and have full function for that session but not start every time I boot up? Is this possible?

I have the same problem with this too.....


My system has the ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe (Rev 1.02). Not sure what the problem is.... But when you try to eject a ASMEDIA eSATA connection. It will not eject. It say it's still running and the hard drive LED will stay on if you do a manual disconnect. If you disable Serria2.exe, everything seems to work good.


Not sure if it’s the asmedia rom controller issue or the serria2 software:confused:

It is the Serria2 service that is causing the problem. From what little I found searching this and other forums the best solution for now is to either temporarily stop the service or change it to manual and start it when you want to adjust the fan profile. The latter is what I have decided to do for now.


Best solution would be for the service to only start when you start the Corsair software.


For me the software is a little too intrusive on what it does to the system and there is no way to control what it monitors.

Here is what I choose to do for this problem:


1. Set Sierra2service to manual

2. Go to options in CorsairLink 2 after the software opens and click restart. This will start the service and the monitors.

3. After making needed adjustments, close Corsair Link 2 and stop Sierra2service.


I do not have Corsair Link 2 set to automatically start and primarily use it to make adjustments to the fan speeds if needed. I have the profile set to quiet and I am getting very good performance so far.


If you choose to have Corsair Link 2 running all the time you can stop the service if you need to eject a drive.


I have also chose to disable sierra2.gpu.exe from starting automatically. I have the software that came with my video card to monitor it.
