Hi,

I just got a new SATA controller card (PCI) and installed a Seagate 300 GB SATA drive. This is on a Windows XP SP2 machine. The controller appears as Sil3512 SATALink Controller under SCSCI controllers in the device manager. Using smartctl v5.37 I am able to get most of SMART data but not the error or self-test logs. Here's the output of the command:

smartctl -s on -H -i -A -l error -l selftest /dev/hdd

Is there anything I can do so it can retrieve the error and self-test logs? Is this a driver issue? Would a newer driver for the card help?
 
Thanks.
