Nice! You guys need to leave it running my crappy tester program as well. It will run for hours but it does pickup on reliability issues.

Obviously things are working well with the spread of cards, other than Phil who managed to break it, but we need reliability tests doing as well. As mentioned before, they can error at random anywhere in a 3 or 4 hour window... Or even after a few moments. Copying lots of files about of all sizes is also a good test. But the most errors in have seen is with my crappy tester program.

Ok, now I have a bunch of working disks/cards, next up I will try some reliability testing :)

What is the best tool on the ST to do the relaibility testing? (I did look back through the thread but I can't see any links to a tool. It's late and I'm tired to be fair.)

EDIT - 00:55 29/04 - Wait, I just found mention of rateHD.prg, so I will use that.

I was also planning on running up xferrate with the different devices, see what speeds were getting for them.

I'll leave it running for 3 - 4 hours later, after I've checked that Chinese cart with the diag cart
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.
