Question about Seagate Momentus 5400.3 Hard Drive

1 Answer

I have a seagate momentus 5400.3 160gb drive installed in a Thinkpad t60 laptop. It was working fine until after I had put it in hibernation, and subsequently tried to get back in (approximately 2 hours passed between the first action and the second). When I tried to get in, the system went to a blue screen stating that there was (I think), an unrecognized boot volume error. I have now put the drive in an external USB drive. Although explorer can identify the drive, when I try to look at the contents of the drive, the system states "the request cannot be performed because of an I/O device error". Is there a way to get access to the data?

Configuring the BIOS
After completing the drive installation, restart your computer. Your computer
may automatically detect your new drive. If your computer does not
automatically detect your new drive, follow the steps below.
1. Restart your computer. While the computer restarts, run the system
setup program (sometimes called BIOS or CMOS setup). This is usually
done by pressing a special key, such as DELETE, ESC, or F1 during
the startup process.
2. Within the system setup program, instruct the system to auto detect
your new drive.
3. Save the settings and exit the setup program.
When your computer restarts, it should recognize your new drive.
That should work ya long haired hippie. give me a shout this weekend, M.Y. (puff puff pass *****!)

FreeAgent Pro USB broken -- need data from Momentus drive


Momentus is a SATA drive, so you can put it in any PC that has SATA bus to access the drive.
If you can borrow a SATA to USB dock, you can put it in the dock and plug the dock to USB port on a computer to get your data out the drive.
One example for the USB dock is EZ-dock and you can search on Internet for the picture.

No, the disk doesn't appears in My Computer because the file system on it is completely corrupted - all the data is lost. To see if the hard disk itself is recoverable download, install and run this free program (select the correct disk for testing)

Hi There. I am looking for an Internal Hard Drive to suit a Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. Seagate Momentus 5400.3 160Gb ST9160821AS. Where can I get one or is there another Hard Drive that would be OK to use...


I suggest you check the specification of your Dell laptop to see the maximum size hard drive it can support. The maximum size hard disk you can install in the laptop depends upon the BIOS.
Any major brand of 2 1/2" hard drive will work with the Dell.

Seagate momentus 3 60gb problem


What software did you use for the cloning?
Ghost is the preferred method.
Be sure to choose a disk to disk clone, not a partition clone.
It sounds like you may have created a 20G partition and left 40G unallocated.
Partition Magic may also take care of the problem, if you have access to a copy.
