Backup Error with Seagate ST500DM002


Recommended Posts

Just had a interesting time setting up  a scheduled OS backup to the above mentioned HDD in a USB attached caddy


Basically.... it does not work with this drive


I kept getting the following error


A ) Error code 2155348010




B ) i/o device error


quick Google turned up this article




Looks like a 4096 sector size issue ????


Could not be bothered with trying to hunt doen a 512 emulator... but if anyone knows how to get around this problem... please shout out... shame not to be able to use a decent 500GB HDD


I popped in a WD 250GB Black (WD2502ABYS) as a stop gap and it's working fine..... Anyone had any other drives that DON'T work in a USB caddy ?
