Question about Seagate ST1.2 ST68022CF 8 GB ATA-33 Hard Drive

1 Answer

No detection or read

I had 2 I/O Magic Gigabank 8gb portable drives. They both spontaneously stopped being detected in Windows XP. One clicks in a cyclical way and seems to want to start. The other has a similar cyclical electronic noise but without so much clicking. This problem seems too common with these - see http://www.hackphoto.com/2006/01/21/io-magic-gigabank-8gb/ I need to recover the data on both drives, hopefully without the expense of a data recovery service. I took apart the drives and carefully removed the drives, which are both Seagate ST1.2 ST68022CF 8 gb drives, 2006 vintage. I plugged each into a Compact Flash reader and tried to detect and read them. The problem persists, except that with one of them, it sometimes reads is detected on the F drive but does not read, and it also seems to stall or delay other programs. A solution to reading and recovering the files would be appreciated. Thanks. Jbones

    Did not work but thanks fro trying. Called Seagate and they said it's probably a hardware problem, could send in but might cost $$. These drives were in I/O Magic Gigabank 8gb's - they're both toast now.

You could try to download and install FTK - Forensic Tool kit to grab the info. But sadly if the memory won't detect, your looking at having to use expensive software/hardware to grab the info.

Re magic 8 gigabank: How do format the disc - wipe


You should be able to format the drive by right clicking on the drive and selecting format from the context menu. Normally it will select the same format type when you do this. I would get the properties first (right click | Properties) and then when you choose format make sure it is selecting the same type.

There are other options, but this is the easiest. Let me know what happens.

My 2gb pendrive not working it is not detected


Trouble:
You may have faced a problem when you insert your pen drive and it gets detected very easily but it doesn’t show up as a drive icon in My Computer. The Computer detects the pen drive but data on pen drive is not visible as the pen drive is not visible in My Computer (Explorer).
This problem occurs mainly when windows XP fails to allocate a drive letter to your portable drive(pen drive). It occurs mostly with new pen drives connected to your computer for the first time. If you face such problem then it may not be the pen drive’s fault, rather it may be windows trouble.

If Problem Fix:
Fix:
You can fix this issue by following some simple steps given below.

Computer does not read my gigabank 8.0; no access to data


hi,

These drives are pretty sturdy but it sounds like the USB control circuit may be dead.

If this is the case what to do next comes down to what's on the drive. If there is nothing important on the drive which isn't backed up somewhere else. Buy a new one for $30 and recopy the file on the new one. If you need the files on it you can send it out for data recovery, anywhere from $100-$1500 depending on which part failed. I know a few places able to help you if you need this option. If you need the pros reply back with your Country, State and City and I will refer you to an appropriate pro for the job.

Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris

Can not open Gigabank 8gb in windows xp


Read this article but only the Response section from

Wow, you have purchased a "magical" device
that judging from the response from other owners like
you, its a disappointing investment :)

When you decide to crack it open and take the CompactFlash card to your card reader, you should aware
that you will suffer greater risks of damaging it, okay?
I have warned you :)

DRIVERS FOR IOMAGIC 250GB (WIN XP)


The I250HD35 is plug-and-play with Windows XP. That means that all of the drivers needed to run your hard drive are included in Windows.

If your computer is asking for drivers when you plug in your drive, one of two things is probably happening:

1) Windows XP doesn't know where to look for the right drivers

2) Your drive has malfunctioned

The easiest way to assess which of these is happening is to take your drive and plug it into another computer that is running Windows XP. If it is detected properly on the other machine, then your computer doesn't have the right drivers or is looking in the wrong place for them. If it doesn't, then I/O Magic will be happy to replace your drive if it is still within the warranty period

If it is detected properly on another Windows XP machine, then when it asks for drivers, make sure to point it to the WindowsINF directory. This is where the default drivers are located.

If your drive is not detected properly on the other computer, your drive is probably experiencing a hardware malfunction. Please visit the I/O Magic website at www.iomagic.com and click on Support for specific return information.

Have a nice day,

I/O Magic Technical Support
