I have a voluson 730 and have had to replace the hard drive three times in the last year. What could be causing my hard drive to crash? Can it be prevented? And does this happen often with this machine?

Hard drive crashes and software corruptions are common failures on many ultrasound systems. You can use a monitoring device to record any power anomalies, as this is the most common cause for this failure.

Also, make sure you always shut down the system softly, and do not unplug the power cord or turn the circuit breaker off until the power off is complete.

In addition, make sure you are using brand new hard drives. This should reduce the frequency of these failures.
