    Are there programs similar to Hitach's Feature Tool for Macs? or HDDLife?

    I just want something to control the acoustics of the Hitachi 7k200 HD. It's getting pretty annoying. I can hear the drive from three fee away.

    Thanks, mT :apple:

    Anyone found a tool for this?

    I bought a samsung and it makes a lot more noise than the orginal hitachi harddrive.

    Thanks

    Bump :)

    I'm trying to figure out how to use this so that I can force my 1TB internal HDD to run at SATA2 instead of SATA3 (hopefully that way it'll stop causing drama).

    I've been able to access the tool in 2 ways:
    1) ran Parallels Desktop, set Hitachi Feature Tool.img file as a floppy image, booted from this floppy image --> WORKS, however, it can't see any of my HDDs... why not?

    2) burned the Feature Tool.iso to a CD and boot from that CD at startup. Works too but since it's DOS and doens't have any mac keyboard drivers, I can't navigate!

    Anyone know how to either:
    1) get the tool to see my SATA hdds using parallels when booting from an image? or
    2) boot to the tool from a CD with keyboard drivers on a mac?


    At the moment my setup is:
    SSD in main
    HDD in opti

    P.S. you can get the tool from here: http://www.hgst.com/support/index-fi...ds#FeatureTool

    Hey guy,
    you can use this http://binaryfruit.com/drivedxtool to specify out if the hdd ahd a problem or not.
    i use this from time to time for my normal hdd's becaus i have much of them.
    You can figure out with that tool if the drive health is okay or not.
    Hope this helps you out, because Apple Software is a wee bit than windows software.
