There is another possibility. Some manufacturers, like seagate, have a
stand alone utility that run those tests under control of the cpu,
including controller and cable test (so they say). It is a floppy or
iso bootable image.

These drives are Western Digital Caviar Greens. I don't remember getting
any CD/floppy with them, but I admit I don't pay much attention when I
do, as utility disks supplied with hardware are generally designed to run
under Windows.

I'll have a look on the WD website, though. Thanks for the tip.

Yes, Seagate has the utility for download somewhere on their site. You don't get the floppy/cd unless you buy the thing in a nice box on one of those nice computer supermarket stores.

As to being a windows program... not quite, it is a boot diskette or cd, usually with freedos or msdos, some times perhaps linux. Different manufacturer do things differently, though. I could not find the up to date Fujitsu utility, for instance.
