Re: Vantec EZ-Swap not compatible with Seagate Barracude 200 GB drives

I have an interesting f/u on this.

The Vantec EZ-Swap is indeed completely incompatible with the Seagate
in every imagineable configuration (including configuring it as a 32GB
drive). I suspect the Seagate can't tolerate some signal imperfections
introduced by the splice in the IDE connection.

Ironically, however, the Seagate works much better in an external
firewire case I have than the Maxtor 200GB I used there. The Maxtor,
conversely, works well in the Vantec EZ-Swap.

All IDE hard drives are NOT the same!
