Thread: Storage Device Problems

  1. #1

    Default Storage Device Problems

    Hi.
    About a week ago, working with my laptop, suddenly, the screen turned black. I could here the music that was playing but, the system was unresponsive. I had to "hard-shutdown" the machine restarting it. I received a message:
    PHP Code:
    The storage device ST1000LM0ET-1RK172 (<</dev/sda>>) is showing indications of instability
    What I did was to install "SMARTmontools"; run the program; but it tells me there are no errors.
    Today it happened for the forth time and I have no idea where to look and how to repair it.
    I hope you can help me on this one.
    Thanks

    In any case, I would make some extra backup.

    It looks to me like a recent KDE problem:

    It seems to be ok, is it?

    This looks to me like a reason to contact Seagate support, unless the laptop was asleep at those times, and still it might anyway

    I am worried about multiple occurrences of 'KINGSTON DataTraveler SE1 1.00 PQ' in your journal. I don't see these on any of my machines. They strictly occur once in any of the boots detected by 'journal --list-boots':
    Code:

    I presume some resets occur on your machine.

    Since installing kernel-default-5.12.9-1.1.x86_64 the usb interface to memory sticks has become sensitive to physical mounting.

    Obervations:
    1. sometimes usb-memory-stick not recognised on one port but ok on another
    2. sometimes usb-memory-stick connection lost during save operation leaving the named file empty
    3. no differecne after updating to kernel-default-5.12.10-1.1.x86_64
    4. usb-hdd i/f's very stable
    5. stopped using kbackup due to file corruption on usb-memory-sticks
    7. occurrance is on both v2 and v3 usb i/f's
    8. its not h/w related as this occurs on both laptop and pc.

    Assumptions
    timing problem that only affects usb-memory-sticks
    or
    the os's on the network have all been compromised

    conclusion
    baffled: do not know how to report this as sometimes all works ok

    Are you sure? All my sticks work perfectly since ever:
