    Here is my situation:
    All the files needed to run usb loaders are in one sd:\apps.
    Two USB disks with same games but different partition sizes.
    Use one USB disk for a while and then connect the other without changing the config files on the sd:\apps.
    Would that be the cause for freezing some games with the second USB drive?
    What are the tools available for testing the health of a USB disk? I have Mac OSX, Ubuntu and XP.

    I remember somewhere PPsainity mentioning stress test, but I could not find that post. I did find a utility that he recommends for something else.
