Not possible, sorry. The drive controller PCB is not user-replaceable. You can take it to Doctor Disk or similar business near you, they may be able to recover your data, but it will cost...
Thats what backups are for.

Hi, I have some troubles with my Baracuda ATA IV 20gb,so I need to download some softwear for this harddrive.Do you know weare I can find it? Thanks Allex Bulat


Hi

Hard Drive faults can rarely be repaired by downlading drivers. The drivers for almost all hard drives are already in any operating system.

Most hard drive faults are physical faults, such as bad sectors, controller board faults or shock damage.

Some apparent faults may actually be due to incorrect jumper settings. It is worth fully exploring all the jumper setting options available on this drive.

This drive is quite an old ATA drive and because hard drives work so hard spinning several thousand times per minute (yours is 7,200rpm), the older a hard drive gets the more susceptible it is to failure.

Your drive was probably manufactured in 2001 and is likely to have had a 3 year warranty when new, so it is long past its warranty period. This means that little help is now available to you from Seagate.

It is sometimes possible to download Firware Updates for certain hard drives, which can improve the performance of the drive. But Firmware Updates rarely repair hard drive errors.


You can find detailed technical information about your hard drive here:

www.seagate.com/support/disc/manuals/ata/100129212b.pdf
Available Firmware Update Information for Seagate Drives can be found here:
http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/crm/selfservice/search.jsp?DocId=207931&NewLang=en To check if any Firmware Updates are available for your drive, you need the full model number, which should be somewhere on the label (possibly ST380021A).

If firmware updates or jumper settings changes don't work, you may have to consider buying a new ATA hard drive.

I hope this helps.

I have ST3160215A 160 gb but it showing 137.4 please help!!!


Assuming that the jumpers at your hard drive is in the
right position. Run Scandisk to correct defect of the hard drive. If there's no change after the running Scandisk, then, the portion after the 137.4 either used space or a defective one.

Reduced Hard Drive Capacity with Internal to External Kit


Problem can be tricky.. though i offer my two cents.

1. some BIOS have upper limit of hard disk capacity. check that out. try connecting IDE device to IDE connector in same comp and see if it is being detected properly.

2. seagate guys are true .. IDE to usb conversion can be tricky ... a lot depends on card convertor.

my advice would be if you have precious data on it ... first take a backup of it, if possible connecting the disk to nomal ide connector.
