    XP Abuser - I think I would be imaging that hdd instead of BS'ing on the forum - come on - don't tell me you don't believe it!:eek: :eek:

    I am not familiar with S.M.A.R.T. - hope you didn't spend too much cash on it - unless your hdd really does go up in smoke tomorrow!

    if the mobo supports smart and it is enabled, then there is no problem.

    I think most of those SMART monitor programs need to run for a while before they become accurate.

    Well I have that for my HD also, so let me know if it dies! It would be good to know if it really works or not. I look at it like this for me, anything that can give me a heads up is better than nothing.
