Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500 GB SATA Hard Drive

1 Answer

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500GB Video Included. Humming, Wobbling

Not detected by anything, hooked it up via usb directly, and still didn't work. The drive spins up and everything. Has not yet been opened, but I do plan on trying to repair the drive myself sometime.

500GB 7200.10 Barracuda

Stopped working when I accidentally tripped over the drive.
I'm hoping someone could diagnose the drive simply from the sound. Is it the heads? The platters? Thanks, let me know if anything else is needed...

Brother,it is a firmware problem for seagate drives,the 7200.10 has a typical problem of firmware,once it currupt,then it cannot be detcted by the BIOS or PC ,or showing 0GB or less capacity when connected,so you can use some useful tools such as HD Doctor for Seagate to repair it,this problem is very common but less tool can deal with it till now.

My new Seagate Barracuda 7200 does not


Hi Simlei.
If its a modern, fairly new drive, it should have built-in firmware, without a need for extra drivers.
If you OS is old the OS itself may not be recognizing the drive's 'language', especially if the bus-width differs, ie 16/32/64bit.
As 1 TB is quite recent on SSD's, I guess its new.
My 1 TB Toshiba just plugs into USB and Win Explorer detects it as a storage drive.
Regards, Clive.

Seagate Barracuda external hardrive - damage to usb connector on


Assuming the drive itself is still ok (it sounds like it would be), then yes, you can put the drive into another case or directly into the motherboard if you know how to do that.

Cannot detect Seagate Barracuda 7200.9


The motherboard has two SATA connectors but they only go up to a 150 MB/s data transfer rate.

Your Seagate however, is engineered for 300 MB/s data transfer.

Download the Seagate manual for this drive and you will see the diagram on the last page that shows how to place a jumper on the drive to make it work at 150 MB/s.

Harddrive is not detecting bios


get a hard drive kit that will connect it via usb or get a PCI card that will allow you to install the PCI card into a PCI slot and then attach the hard drive to the PCI card ( ensuring you select the correct PCI card ) ie if its a sata drive then get a sata PCI controller card and if its IDE then get an IDE PCI controller card.
Also check for motherboard updates for your computers motherboard and also check in the bios to ensure LBA is enabled and that its detecting the hard drive.

bricked hard drive? Would folling this lead to a full hard drive format or just unbricking a drive like people sat it does?? Also any other ways that might help would be great to know, heres what i'm talking about! "Fixing The Drive NOTE: Commands for you to type are in red boldface. Pay attention to upper & lower case - it is important. Turn on power to the RS232-to-TTL adapter and the hard drive. After a few seconds, Press CTRL+z. You should then see a prompt like this: F3 T> If not, swap TX & RX wires. Access Level 2 (type /2): F3 T>/2 (enter) F3 2> Then spin down the (disconnected) motor: F3 2>Z (enter) Spin Down Complete Elapsed Time 0.147 msecs F3 2> Very carefully, remove the cardstock that you placed between the PCB and the drive head contacts. Carefully replace and tighten the 3 loose screws. I suggest using a small piece of masking tape to help you hold the screws while you put them back in place. Then start the motor: F3 2>U (enter) Spin Up Complete Elapsed Time 7.093 secs F3 2> Next go to Level 1 (type /1): F3 2>/1 (enter) And do a S.M.A.R.T. erase (create S.M.A.R.T. sector): F3 1>N1 (enter) Cycle power to the drive, then do partition regeneration: F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 (enter) After 15-30 seconds, you should see something like: Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 14, Max Certify Rewrite Retries = 00C8 User Partition Format 10% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 00004339, ErrCode 00000080, Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs Do not turn off drive until you see this message. Once seen, drive can be turned off. Power down everything, place drive back into your computer, and confirm that it's working." Thanks.
