Can't add new harddrive to my array


Recommended Posts

Hello I've been having issues with this harddrive for ages since I've tried adding it to my system. It would be replacing an old drive and nothing I do seems to work. If I try formatting it through normal methods it crashes with the following system logs.

 

While this is not my system the exact same problem happens whenever I try to add the drive.

In addition whenever I try to run a smart test I don't get anything going. It just grey's out the opposite (ie if you run short it grey's extended, and vice versa) and then the test button I pressed immediately returns to say "start" after flashing "stop" for a fraction of a second. I've gotten a sort of example using the smartctl -x /dev/sdf command

And that was the result. I've tried multiple ports, this cable had been in use for ages with no issues before. I don't have any spare cables on hand and would have to purchase new ones in order to test. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I don't want to waste this drive.

You don't want to mention format in the same breath as replacing.

 

syslog is full of connection problems on sdf. Any power splitters?

Power connection problems are connection problems just like data cable connection problems.

 

Also, best if no more than 4 drives per PSU cable.

 

I've replaced the power supply, so now no more than 4 discs are attached to any individual psu cable. I'm still getting the same issue shown in the gif to start with where if I select it to replace a drive it disappears.
