Don't try to repair it. The internal workings are very delicate and need to be completely dust free. Your drive is failing, Try and save as much of your personal Data from it as you can before it stops completely. Check on the Hitachi website to see if it is under warranty. The company will only replace the hardware not, try and recover your software even if it is under warranty.

I have a HDP725050GLA360 hard drive, it's a hitachi 500GB sata 2. All good and well until i start uTorrent. Even if it's about seeding or dowloading, the computer just starts freezing over and over...

Torrents are notorious for viral activity and odd quirks. The HDD either works or it doesn't. The computer may be just overloaded with 'stuff' to process.

I can't get Vista Ultimate set up to recognize my WD 1TB HDD in a new build. Is this a software problem or problem with the HDD. I get the short beep at BIOS start up so I don't think its with the...

Few steps to check your harddisk status on the motherboard would resolve this issue. Checkin to the cmos setup and look for the detection of the HDD and the size it shows once you have done a formating.

Vista 64 bit shows issues at times while installing a new SATA 1TB HDD. Check if the 1TB HDD is installed on to SATA 0.

Use a WD Disk Manager and format the HDD initially and then try install Vista on to it. Else if this doesnt work on the system, Put the HD on to another working system and Format it with NTFS File system and try installing Vista.. You will be successful. Good Luck.

Deskstar 1TB SATA started making ''uncommon'' noises.Now I can't find or access any of the data on the drive. It starts making noise as soon as I put power to it(Heads crashing???)!

it seems ur hdd is old, while the pc is powered on, bring ur ear closer to the hdd n make sure that it does not make any noise (like 'tuk tuk' or 'kirr kirr') such case itz probably gone bad n need to b replaced..

Computer freezes on start-up when western digital 1tb external hdd plugged in to computer, computer starts fine with it unplugged. The hard drive can be plugged back in after start-up.

This is a known problem with these drives. Disabling USB legacy support in your Bios should solve the problem., it did in my case but at the expense of not being able to boot from a USB device. Definitley a problem with their enclosure or drive.

Sata Hard Drive not detected on Bios


When istalling th O/S the system will ask you to press F2 to install the SATA drivers, if you do not press this and install the SATA drivers for the HDD, the system will not read the drive,

Re-install the O/S and watch (( you get 3 seconds to choose it ))

Press F2 when it asks you
(( are you installing SATA HDD ))

Stick the driver in at this point
(( you should have a disc with drivers on it that came with it ))

Finish the install, the system will then read from the SATA drive,

It's because usually the system is looking for a IDE drive.

Your using SATA, so you need to tell the system, that this is a SATA drive,

You will be good to go then

My lacie (1TB - HI-SPEED USB 2.0)is not responding to opening(is not accesible)

Check to see if the HDD appears in the Disk Mgr (you are in Windows(!)) Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Disk Manager and see if it appears in the right side screen there? If it does, you might need to write a signature to it so WIN can use it, Partition it so your computer can see it (Not all PC can 'talk' to HDD that big (BIOS thing) and you may only be able to use a logical part of the physical whole 1Tb HDD) Rt click the drive and see what is offered. If the tiny drive Icon is RED or Yellow - there is a problem... and you will need to sort this first. Example: the WHOLE 1TB is 1 partition, but your BIOS can only 'see' a maximum of 500, then it will not be 'able' electrically to 'talk' to the HDD, so it will never go 'ready'. Like a foreigner ;-) Until you get on the right level//terms of communication, it'll never fly. In that case, you MUST either upgrade your motherboard BIOS to handle really large HDD, or delete the 1TB single partition, and make 2 or 3 smaller ones. After you format these, you'll have 2-3 (or more) 'logical' drives within that single 1Tb 'Physical' drive. IF your BIOS can talk to the 1TB size drive, and everything in there is OK, check to make sure it is marked "Healthy(Active)' if not, Rt Click and format it. If you need to format, I strongly suggest you use QUUICK/FAST method, or you will be there all night waiting for it to finish. If all this has been done, the Partition is OK, formatted and has been labelled Healthy(Active), make sure that it has a driveletter assigned ;-) Just Right-click inside the drive BOX and select 'Change Drive Letter and Paths. This is not always done automatically and no driveletter can be a BAD thing. OK.. If it is Partitioned, Formatted, Healthy/Active and has a letter and you STILL cannot see it when On and plugged in... carefully put it to your ear - or your EAR to IT ;-) and Now flip the power switch ON.
Does it spin up, make clickety-clicking sounds and then get quiet? That my friend is HDD POST and Head0 track0 sector0 seek. It will try this 3-10x and then turn itself off - BAD HDD TAKE IT BACK!! If it keeps running, After all that POST stuff, the drive should be quiet for some 2-3 seconds and then make alot of noise. Some Ext USB drives MUST be connected to the host (PC/Laptop/MAC) in order to power on. If yours doesn't make any noise (except maybe the internal fan) turn it off and plug the USB cable to a different USB port (could be the one you are trying is dead) and retry the above. Immediately after it quiets, you will hear a loud click and then alot of noises as it reads off the files, scanning the HDD. This is always accompanied by alot of flashing of the read and write activity lights on the HDD. If still dead, get another USB cable and try that (there are alot of bad cables out there) I am assuming that the USB ports you are trying *used* to work? If they are on a new card or PCMCIA adapter, install that first, THEN reboot, THEN try the Ext HDD. Latly, if you ARE getting all the noises, lights and such, and still cannot see/read the drive, it may be jumpered incorrectly (Did you put it in the case?) Otherwise - Don't open the case, take it back and get a replacement.
Good Luck!
