Please check the ribbon on the 80 gig and make sure it is seated correctly on the mb and on the hd.
Also check the ribbon for any breakage as this can cause the crc error message
Let me know what you find out fro the above suggestions.

I opened the box, the connectors seemed to be seated firmly. I jiggled them around a little, but it did not solve the problem. (did not re-run SeaTools, but other two symptoms are the same).

The seatools are just for the 80 gig unless new drive is the same make. I don't know if it will test the second drive as I have never tried it that way. I'm just worried that the 80 gig has taken the big nap and we may have just lost the fight. I don't want to admit that but this is not looking good. :)

Disappointing, but not devastating.

I will take it to work to see if the techs can mount it (it's not really their job, but...).

FYI, the SeaTools I mentioned are the ones I got via (probably through some indirection) one of the links in your signature. The 80b is a Maxtor. Apparently they were bought/otherwise subsumed by Seagate(?). As you recall from earlier in the thread, the drive once passed this test, but now it doesn't.

The new HD I bought is Seagate and came with a newer version of SeaTools, but that is not what I ran for the above.

I agree it is not looking good but I have not abandoned all hope...

Well that is good. I don't give up either.
I forgot about the Maxtor buy out from Seagate and I apologize for that. Please keep me informed as to what happens. The good point though is that you have a newer faster and larger capacity drive to work with. I look forward to your update about the drive. Good luck and I hope you can save most of your data.
