PLEASE HELP !! I have a HITACHI Deskstar harddisk (T7K500 HDT725032VLAT80) and it has a clicking sound. The window won't detect this device at all. I got it out of the external enclosure and get a new enclosure box, still doesn't work. I put it in the freezer but it doesn't work, it still has the clicking sound. Should I replace the head or other parts?? Thankyou

If your drive is clicking and isn't detected by the operating system, your hard drive is VERY dead. There are no user replaceable part inside a hard drive. The only thing you might do is get the very same hard drive and swap the controller card from a known good hard drive to the bad hard drive but the chances of this working are VERY slim. I would resign myself to the fact that the data on that drive is very truly gone.

Hi, I have problem here. I just bought Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000.C. It works fine at first, but one day latter some clicking noise appear. It detected in BIOS, but then make my Windows take a very long time...


The short answer is the drive is having trouble calibrating itself, and should be sent back under warranty for replacement.
There are things you could try to recover the unit, but why risk voiding the warranty only to wind up with a questionable drive afterward?

Hitachi Deskstar - Model HDP725050GLA360 Sata 3.0 500 GB S/N RJ3KSXHE Clicking sound after being dropped. Is there any hope of recovering the data on this drive at a reasonable price?


if the hard disk has crashed and the sound when it runs later he failed to be detected by the system, it is difficult to restore the data in it because it was not detected by the computer. The cheapest way is that you replace with only secondhand.

What ATA setting does your computer support? Hitachi makes a program you can drop the ATA settings down on your drive and that might fix your read error problems. It's called Feature Tools and it is on there website. http://www.hitachigst.com
