hey all, I've been having some problems with this setup of mine for a while now. I have a 2GHz PowerMac G5 with G5DriveBracket and a RocketRAID Controller Card giving 4 internal drives setup as RAID10. The problem is that randomly the individual drives will register as 'disconnected' and set off the alarm on the controller card. i'm have no idea why it does this, but after a reboot sometimes it comes back online fine, other times it needs to rebuild the array, and yet other times the RAID drive won't show up in Finder at all - and if i log into the RAID controller it doesn't show any drives connected either. I can't go on with these drives dropping out like this, so i need to either find a solution for why it's doing this, or i'm just going to take 3 of the drives out and run them with my 2 existing external HD's (which both have FW). so first of all, does anyone have ideas as to why the HD's on the RAID are failing like this? Could it be because i need a bigger power supply to power all of them? Or could the Controller Card itself be damaged? I've checked all the cables, they're connected properly... or could there be too much heat around the drives? Now with the external enclosures... i want to use my existing drives. I'm thinking that Firewire is the best option since i'll be using it for video work. Unless anyone can think of a better option...? I was curious about how eSATA would go - i would have to give up one of the standard SATA connectors to do this, which i'd rather not do. Is there any sort of "SATA splitter cable" that i could use? And then could the eSATA drives be daisy-chained? Thanks for any help on this, this has been a problem for quite a while now, i'm finally going to fix this one way or another (i think i'll be ditching this RAID card...) Cheers.
