DBan Error Message - autonuke only


New Member
Hello Fellow Erasers,
I'm wondering why this happens: every time I use the DBan function (current and previous) on my AM2 4600, I can only use the 'autonuke' function. The returned message when trying to manually determine passes etc is something like 'disk returned with non-fatal errors, probably due to bad sectors'. The odd thing is, I accepted this may be the various HDDs I've tried, but I received the exact same message on a brand new Seagate Sata 2 drive, so it doesn't make much sense.
I've also had the same error message on other computers (Intel), so I'm perplexed as to what to do.
Any ideas?

try using another version of dban...I have ver 1.0.7, 1.0.6, beta 2007042900 and beta 2007041900 and they all seem to perform differently with different drives...overall, I have found beta 200702900 to be the best one yet...

Thanks sir fir.

Interestingly enough, I found the last DBAN version actually worked with my Seagate Sata 2.
