I’m just having problems with my external Maxtor 6Y160P0 (160 GB) harddisk:
Mar 23 18:38:35 server kernel: sd 1:0:0:0: SCSI error: return code = 0x8000002 Mar 23 18:38:35 server kernel: sdb: Current: sense key=0x3 Mar 23 18:38:35 server kernel: ASC=0x11 ASCQ=0x0 Mar 23 18:38:35 server kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev sdb, sector 228134640 Mar 23 18:38:35 server kernel: loop7: loop_end_io_transfer err=-5 bi_rw=0x0 Mar 23 18:38:35 server kernel: EXT3-fs error (device loop7): ext3_get_inode_loc: unable to read inode block - inode=2044226, block=4096014
There are many files that aren’t readable anymore (Input/output error).
I noticed that this is not the first Maxtor harddisk I’m having problems with. I had also problems with my 40 GB Maxtor 6E040L0 and an older 6.8 GB Maxtor harddisk, which I already threw away. My other five harddisks (which are not from Maxtor) work without any problems.
My conclusion: Never buy a Maxtor harddisk!
Is there anyone with similar experiences?
