when you press the reset button on the PC it cuts off power to all devices, so the drive looses its power. if it didnt do this, then it would only be a half ass reset
I have no idea what computer(s) you have access to, but every single machine I've used with a hard reset option keeps power to all drives. This is how I deal with v78s and v79s. If you're losing power when you hit the reset button there's something else wrong.
Yes, you're right - the reset button *is* a half-ass reset since the devices never power cycle! This is why I advise others to always power down, count to 5 and power up again if they are doing a full reboot.This post has been edited by Martinchris23: Jul 18 2008, 05:31 PM
