DL380 Failing Drives in Raid 5 or Radi 1+0 but Raid 0

Hello

We had a bunch of 73GB 10K drives sitting around which supposedly are going to fail soon. I was just wondering why is it when I create an array using these disks that in Raid 0 they don't give any errors or flash the red light on the front of the drive and work just fine. But as soon as I switch the array over to Raid 5 or Raid 1+0 that they seem to be failing. Is this a bad firmware the drives or??

yes you can try that

use the Firmware Maintenance CD to update the HDD firmwares and controllers.
is this happening in the same controller? or have you another controller to create RAID 5 or 1?

and let's see the results.
Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!
