Ok I have this weird problem. I can't for the life of me figure out what's going on. But here goes: I have a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB (HD103SJ if you're interested in exact model), that I've had in a cheap external USB 2.0 cabinet for some time now. It works lovely. Tonight I thought I'd put it in the case instead (see system specs), but it does not work with a SATA cable connected. It just doesn't. I've tried three different cables, two of them are brand new. The cables work with other drives, but not this one. It starts to spin up, but stop before it's done. When the SATA cable is disconnected it spins up as it should (that "OOP" sound). So now it's back in the external cabinet where it actually works. Nothing strange about the SMART values too. Any ideas anyone?
