(1) what does mdadm -D /dev/md0 (or /dev/md1 or whatever your device is) output?

(2) Please ask the moderator to merge your now 3 or 4? threads on this subject together. You don't need to open a new thread when pursuing the same problem, and it makes it difficult for people to help or learn from the thread. Just click Report and ask nicely please.
