Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1 TB 7200rpm SATA 6Gb/s with NCQ 32MB Ca
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.
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

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.

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

If I remember correctly then you nee to REMOVE the jumper to have it as a slave drive. Otherwise the second from left (with power plug on the right) is usually the SLAVE position on those drives

how about scanning and trying to repair the sectors with hirens boot cd. There is a utility on it called hd regenerator or something like that http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd. I think you have to download this cd from piratebay first. There is no download from his website.

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.
