Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500 GB SATA Hard Drive
It's a Seagate Barracuda 7200.10, 500GB.
It fell down about 2ft and no longer connects to my laptop. It still gets power; the light comes on, but it just beeps out this strange chirpy noise.
I think the disk can't spin or something; is there a way to make it spin?
I've got a lot of data on the thing, enough for it to be valuable in the region of a several hundred pounds, but not the thousand eight hundred that seagate were asking for for them to retrieve my data.
Hell, even if there's a short term '3 hour' fix, that would be perfect for me to just copy everything off it onto another drive.
This is very common in the 7200.10 series,there is the bug of the firmware,so u must update ur fw and the your drive will be detected by the bios and pc.
there is many cases in this website:www.salvationdata.com/blog

You may consider this options but if you have no more options. This treat your hard drive as to be trash already.
Some do it this way, they swap the board of the harddrive with a good board with the same make, model, capacity, and board design, also its revision.
Hoping they can run it, only if the harddrive board that gets defective. But still sometimes will get some issue for it.
