Question about Hitachi HDT725050VLAT80 500 GB EIDE Hard Drive

1 Answer

Hard drive crashed

I'm just trying to confirm if my hard drive crashed. I have a 500gb 7200rpm Hitachi HDD in an IOMEGA inclosure. Recently it slipped off of my desk onto carpeted floor. Since then I've tried to turn it on, but it keeps making a funny noise that sounds like a system Boot Error Alarm or like barring that is out of place

HARD DRIVE NOT DETECTED


I would just try and come out straight to you, that your harddrive has very much likely to have crashed. Hard Drives are generally Very Fragile because of the Tiny Read/Write head that is inside.
The moment it drops on the floor it might have got broken. and that is why you are hearing the funny noise...although it will still keep spinning because the voltage is still being supplied onto it, but you might not be able to read or write anything onto it.
Sorry.
Hope this helps.
Goodluck.
