Howdy.... new ATI user having a little problem with one of my external drives and ATI 8.0..... I have 2 USB external hard drives and when they are both up and running upon launching ATI, the launch hangs as it is analyzing partition 2-1........... Eventually I get an error message saying that it failed to read from sector such and such and gives me the options to retry, ignore, ignore all, and cancel. No matter which choice I make, it continues to analyze the next partition untill I get a similar message regarding partition 2-2.... and so on. Eventually I have to resort to using the Task Manager to shut down ATI. I then remove the offending drive and relaunch ATI with no problems. Obviously there is a problem with this drive and ATI. The drive functions normally if I read or write to it otherwise. I'd like to be able to use this drive for redundant imaging. Any ideas why ATI is having a problem with this drive and what if anything I might do to correct them? Also I'm wondering exactly what is taking place when the drives are being analyzed when ATI launches. Thanks in advance for any input.
