Hey all, bit of a problem seems to be developing on my Drobo.
It’s finding it hard to keep up with the playing of a video (hd or not, tried .mkv, .avi). It will stop and re-buffer once every 10 seconds making everything unwatchable. The same file played from my iMac is perfectly fine.
The Drobo doesn’t seem to be misbehaving in any other way (mount/startup times). I am however really worried. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: here is a read/write test run on the drobo in it’s current condition:
I’m using a Drobo 2nd Generation.
I’m using firmware version 1.3.6 (and dashboard version 1.6.8).
The drobo has two 1.5TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 drives (that i have checked are on the safe list for use with the drobo) & one 1TB Western Digital Caviar Green 5400.
I’m using Mac OSX 10.6.3 (latest).
I’m using FireWire 800.
I last ran repair disk when you asked me when i ran repair disk with a clean bill of health .
If you need to know anything else please just ask.
