Nah, this drive is just plain screwed. Nothing works. Just keeps freezing no matter what. Erased it, formatted it, chkdsk still freezes , drive just keeps timing out. Time to RMA.

Yep, bsod when trying to SFC it as the boot drive. And Crystal said the firmware was 2.1a, which sounds current. Next step may be secure erase, unless someone else has some ideas. And in that case,...

Looks like the blocks are fine. Guess I'll try and manage a stable SFC scan.

Well, that plan failed anyway, as the firmware update utility cannot even see the drives when they are in YATAPDONG mode. The utility needs to see CORSAIR not YATAPDONG.

What exactly would you...

lol, we should trade!

Anyway, I'm going to go ahead and attempt to flash on the off chance that it resurrects the drives, however I am betting heavily that the drives are fried. Wish me luck!
