Windows News & Discussion / Re: Hard Drive Disappeared
« Last post by Simon on Dec 30, 2020, 19:33:35 »
Yeah, I would hope the quality is still as good, but like you imply, they don't make things like they used to!

In the end, I bit the bullet and have ordered a new desktop PC from CCL Online.  It's being hand built to my specifications and should be with me around the second week of the new year.  I've then got the task, once again, of transferring everything from the old PC to the new one, but at least I can move the new hard drive I just bought into the new PC, so that will account for a lot of data.  I will also have a second 2TB hard drive on which to transfer all the data from my current two 500GB external drives, still leaving a fair amount of spare capacity. 

My only slight niggle is that I recently swapped the old C drive on the old PC for a new SSD drive, which homed the operating system in isolation.  I guess I could eventually use it for additional storage, but for the time being at least, I will need to still have the old PC operable, in case anything gets left behind.  What I would ideally have liked would have been to move the entire new SSD C drive, including the OS, to the new PC, but apparently that sort of procedure is fraught with dangers.

As an appendum to this, my desktop PC is also, almost 13 yrs old. I kept getting my second hard drive to re-appear by re-seating things. Ended up finding that just re-seating the power cable connection at the drive end brought it back to life. But the fix was to replace the Hard Drive, which was original.

So I guess, 13 yrs is about EOL for an HDD ? Probably lucky they lasted that long, although the quality was probably better then.

I often find Windows 10 forgets my DVD Drive. The only way I can get it recognised again is to do a cold boot with a CD/DVD in the drive. Might be worth a try.

Windows News & Discussion / CD Drive not working

My CD/DVD Drive has stopped working on my HP Desktop and I can not play CDs. It was working a few weeks ago but now nothing at all.

Any thoughts?

It's not Openreach, I've been with various ISPs and never seen MSS Clamping before.  I've moved from one ISP to IDNet and everything else remained identical my end, I just changed the user name and password and went from MTU @ 1500 to seeing 1460.  I'd say it is IDNet's routers, possibly something done way back to overcome a particular problem some were having with a website and it's stayed ever since.

This may be of interest https://forum.kitz.co.uk/index.php?topic=19140.0

Perhaps it is worth asking iDnet as they are most likely to know the answer ?

Is it iDNet's routers or is it within the OpenReach backhaul?

Thanks for confirming. I don't know why they clamp the MSS either. Weird.
