How do I read a barracuda 7200.12 1 TB drive? I need to get data off of it, not boot on it

I have a box that I can put drives in to read them but the 7200.12 has completely different connections. This drive will no longer boot up and I need to get data off of it.

Hi
The easiest way that I have found is to get a kit that allows you to power the drive from a separate wall socket and connect a data cable from the drive to a USB socket on the computer. Such a kit usually consists of four components:
A mains lead - wall socket to black box transformer
The black box transformer - has outlet 4 pin molar for IDE drives
A USB cable ending in unit for connecting to an IDE drive or SATA cable
A SATA cable for connecting to the SATA drive (your Barracuda 1Tb in this case)
The components can be seen on this Ebay site:-
USB 2 0 TO SATA IDE Cable for HDD with Power Converter Adapter UK
The one thing missing from this set up is a power conversion cable converting the molar 4 pin power connector to a SATA power connector. These can be a molar plug to go into the lead from the black box and either a single SATA power plug, or a double SATA power connector as shown here :
Molex to 2x SATA Power Dual Power Adaptor Splitter Cable Lead Hdd Cd DVD...
This option is inexpensive and offers great flexibility in the type of drives that can be connected to a USB port, 2.5 or 3.5 inch, SATA or IDE.
In your particular case you may be able to get a dock that connects to a power supply and a USB port, with an opening in the top to take a SATA drive. These tend to be more expensive and only suitable for SATA drives not IDE.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

SOURCE: External Hard Drive I/O Error

Somehow i tried to format and it was formatted. took pretty long time as 1 terabyte. i thought all is ok as the drive was accessible. Just to double check, i scanned the drive thorugh the seagate manager and it got stuck on 10% for few seconds and then said that the hard disk is faulty and should be immediately returned if under warranty. and to confirm it also gave me read errors http://www.dtidata.com/resourcecenter/2007/05/15/how-to-tell-hard-drive-physical-damage/

so i'm giving it to seagate service centre as it probably has physical faults, bad sectors. and someone told me that 1TB hard drives are not stable.

SOURCE: How to extact the data off the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB HD

if its your motherboard that crashed then ther is no problem with your hard disk. connect your hard disk to any other computer and you can access all the files in it.
if it is your harddsik that crashed then try recovery utilities like western digital data storege manger or any other disk recovery tool available for free. if still it fails then you can recover your data if you hand over your hard disk to the nearest service centre. but recover from a hard disk only if its very valuable. thay will charge you per MB of data recovered

SOURCE: Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 SATA driver problem

If the laptop is also XP, the drive should be recognized without problems. Sometimes this may not happen if the disk is unusually partitioned (could happen if you manually dual-booted it with Linux, for example). Verify the enclosure is working properly and has enough power supplied to, and that it appears in Device Manager. If all this applies, the enclosure must be considered working and the problem might be in the partitioning or disk access.

In XP Pro, do Start > Run Command > DISKMGMT.MSC and press OK. See whether the disk appears (if it doesn't, it's the enclosure, or its drivers - or the disk was dying and is now dead, but that's not very likely), select the NTFS or FAT32 partition - ignore any others - right click and mount the unit as drive, say, G.

If it doesn't work but the partition is found, you may need a more powerful tool such as Paragon Partition Manager.

Bios cannot read hard drive


Hi Robert,

IT could be that the Barracuda drive is formatted for boot up. I would boot up with the drive that boots, and make the Barracuda a spare drive, so you can go in and first see if has any issues as a drive,(meaning sector 0 errors, and if you can access it, then you can format it as a boot up drive, or get what data on that drive off for your friend.

Good Luck Mark

A bad hard drive or the boot sector (the map of the hard drive contents) has an error.

You have two choices. If you run regular backups you can do a full restore including the boot sector, if not, you'd have to format the hard drive and lose your data. Then reinstall Windows and start from scratch.

The other option that loses your data, as well, is replacing the hard drive if it's defective.

Hi,
I've got bad news for you . Your hard drive is damaged for sure and you will need to replace it . It's totaly impossible to install a OS on a damaged drive and at least not recommended .
To retreive data , you will need to disconnect the drive and read it in a external box from a healthy computer .
The chance that the issue would be due to a defect SCSI connection is extremely small .
Regards .

Well if it is less than 2 or 3 years old you could contact them to attempt a sawp out of the drive. Over that - replace the unit. IF you do - you might want to consider a duel disk enclosure so if a drive dies, your data does not. you can build one yourself (1 TB duel drives, Raid 1) for a total of 252 bucks, with good drives (Seagate - Barracuda) Yes I swear by the Seagate Drive. For off teh shelf they have worked very well in every application I have deployed them.

I've been burned by too many single drive failures - even when I have the data backed up it is still a royal pain.

you can take backup of D drive om other computer .
Conect your harddrive to that other computers CPU but make sure that your hardddisk is slave which has issue you can set slave your hdd with jumper read on harddisk.
then connect it to cpu with SATA or IDE .
Then winxp find that all partition then take backup.

AND IFyou haven't other computer you need winxp bootable disk.
Boot your computer with winxp disk then follow the procedurer then you see on screen
your old winxp for repair then when it ask for "r"
Presss "R"
thats it.
Thwen it repair your winxp then you can use easily.

Vista doesn't generally like to be installed on a hard drive that big. Well, Windows, in general doesn't.

And, from the sounds of it, you didn't install Windows on your new primary 1.5TB drive, you just copied it from the 500GB drive, which won't work.

Here's what you should to, to solve this:
1) Swap out your 1.5TB drive with the 500GB drive again.
2) Swap out your secondard 1.5TB drive, with the new one.
3) Create a partition of 120GB or less on that drive
4) Install Windows on the new partition.
5) Put the other 1.5TB drive back in, as secondary.

Once that's done, you can swap out the new 1.5TB drive with your Windows partition on it, in place of the 500GB drive.

When you boot, Windows may ask you to select which operating system you want, just select Windows Vista, and you should be good to go.

I had a similar issue a few years ago, when I tried to install Windows on a 1TB drive, and couldn't get it to work. Once I partitioned a smaller space, it worked like magic.
