Poll Disks with Removable Medium
Previous  Top  Next

By default, SMARTMon will not poll disk devices with removable medium. If you have an Iomega zip drive, for example, and this option is enabled, then SMARTMon will generate a device not ready message every polling interval, if the cartridge is not inserted in the drive.

Note that is field is applicable to disk drives, and not CD-ROMs or CDRWs. SMARTMon never automatically polls these devices anyway.
