I ran Sea Tools for Windows tests on my Dell Inspiron 620 because the DVD Drive has been very noisy. The Long Generic Shows USB-1394 FAIL
The Report shows an entire string of Not Repaired, only a few are shown here.

The other test shows PATA-SATA 9QG8Q655 Model GB0500C4413 FIRMWARE HPG4 Long Generic - PASS

I don't know what Generic Shows USB-1394 FAIL means, does that relate to my DVD Drive? I use FLT SIM 2004 almost every day so there is a DVD spinning in that drive almost all the time. Do I have to replace that drive?
Thanks Mike B

(NT) I'd unplug the DVD drive and re-test.
