Re: seagate hard drive , samsung hard drive

You can try various software diagnostic programs. Check Samsung's website for a download. Gibson Spinrite has a commercial package available. There are freeware/shareware diagnostics out there too. If the drive has an actual hardware failure, then the only option is replace the drive. There used to be drive repair centers (I've sent drives in for repair years ago), but the last time I checked, these seem to disappeared. Hope this helps, but frankly, many of these hard drive problems are non-repairable by us common users.

Re: seagate hard drive , samsung hard drive

Most ACTUAL hard drive failures are fall into one of three categories: ? Read/write head failure ? On-board electronics failure ? Damaged or worn disk platter. If your hard drive was working then you experienced a hard drive error your only real chance of ?repair? is to format the drive from scratch and run chkdisk (or similar program) on it to identify and block out any bad areas on the hard drive platters. In the case of a physically damaged board some people have had some success swapping an IDENTICLE board from another working hard drive. Since you ruin a drive (unless its dead as well) to fix another that is only something you do to recover data, not fix the drive. The bad news is no home user has the skills, tools or clean room environment to successfully replace the heads or platters in a hard drive, assuming you could buy them. Typically posts that give bad news are marked poorly and the only reason I?m posting this is to try to save you some aggravation and time so be kind 

Ihave a sagate 320 inturnal HD that was installed on my desktop Comp. 1.5 years ago I am getting window massage to download all my data due to the HD failing. I am looking at the date code and it appears...

It sounds as if the SMART measurements on your Seagate 320GB hard drive are triggering the Windows message advising that the drive is failing.

You would be best advised to backup your data from this drive to a different drive or on to DVD media (depending on how much data is involved).

To test the failing Seagate disk, download a copy of Hiren's Boot CD which is a CD image file (.ISO) and must be burnt to a blank CD disc - then boot the computer with the failing disk from this CD - then select DOS Programs on the initial menu, then choose Hard Disk Tools and then HDAT2 - this is a tool which will let you try to recover any bad sectors on your boot disk.

On the Hard Disk Tools menu there is also a SMARTUDM - HDD S.M.A.R.T. viewer which will let you examine exactly which areas of the Seagate disk are giving the problem leading to the failure message.

I was running 2 scsi drives in a raid 0. One drive failed, how can i retrieve the files off the the still working drive, and can i?

Hi there, Sorry to break the bad news, but when one hard drive fails in a RAID 0 configuration, all data is lost. Your only chance is to take it to a professional data recovery center, where you could be charged hundreds, or thousands of dollars for a data restore. Seagate will do these recoveries for you. RAID 0 has no redundancy, unfortunately. Sorry about that, Alex

try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this program to recover your files.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

I could not set the jumper ID as 3 in Seagate 73 GB model of Hard drive.It has 12 pins at the back of Hard drive.

You need a jumper on ID pin sets 1 and 2 (as if you were setting it for both ID 1 and ID 2)
These pin sets work like binary, so set 1 for ID1, set 2 for ID 2, and sets 1 & 2 for ID 3. In this mannar, with just the 4 sets of pins, you can have IDs from 0 to 15 (no jumpers to all 4 jumpered..1+2+4+8=15)

* * * *
* * * *
1234 set number
1248 binary ID (additive)

If you need further explanation, please post a reply here.

Since the HDD has rejected easy repair by the most appropriate tools, I recommend you recover the data and replace the drive. I've been through this many times for clients.

2ndary hard drive want to hook up so I have access to 2 drives

If only one of your drives boots it would be because that is the only drive with an acceptable O/S on it.

Remove both hard drives and cables

Step 2:
Install one drive and cable on "0" and see if it will boot.

Step 3:
Go into the Bios - check the Hard Drive information and write it down.

**Repeat the process with the other dirve.
****If they both boot ok then they both have an O/S on them. and you need to choose which one you want for you main drive
******If only one work's USE that one as the MAIN drive as per step 2

Step 4:
Install your main drive on "0" and your Spare drive on "2"
Go into the Bios and Select the Hard Drive from "0" and make it the 1st Boot drive.

Hope this helps.

My Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320 GB SATA Hard Drive is less than 2 years old and has crashed, any fixes?

Hard drives are only designed to last 3 to 5 years. Most hard drive manufacturers only warranty them for 1 year.
For whatever reason yours has died.

Backing up your data is imperative.

If you need to recover data from this hard drive, there are places online that you can send the drive to and they can recover the data on your hard drive. This can cost you a bundle though. If the data is not necessary, all you can do is buy a new one and reinstall your operating system.

SATA 80GB Seagate HDD

When your 80GB SATA Seagate HDD complains of bad sectors while booting, this is a sign of a failing hard drive. Today's hard drives will actually self-correct a certain amount of bad sectors before you get any kind of error message. If you are getting "bad sector" errors, this is because the drive has so many problems that it can no longer self-repair. You asked if this may have happened because you have formatted the drive many times. No, bad sectors was not caused by formatting. Your drive did not become "dead slow" because of the formatting. It became slow because your cpu now has to do much more processing to "work around" the bad sectors on the drive. You also asked if you could recover your hard drive to normal state. Please understand that once a drive shows bad sectors, it will not be long before the drive fails completely, at which point you will no longer be able to access anything at all on the drive. No, this drive cannot be recovered. Instead, you should save all the data you can from this drive, and you should do this as soon as possible, before it fails altogether.
