I have my seagate 500gb 7200.11 connected via a sata/usb external enclosure. When hooked up via sata or usb, I get 'test unavailable' for all test types.
Speedfans smart test works ok, so the problem seems to be with the seatools software itself. Funnily enough, seatools test works on the PC's internal drives (connected by sata) but just not for the drive connected via esata.
Seagate, what is going on? I need to return this drive but it looks like it is working OK (for small files). I wanted to provide the seatools test results to the vendor for a hassle free replacement.
