Question about Western Digital Caviar SE16 (WD5000AAKS) 500 GB SATA Hard Drive
OK, comper says hard drive is working fine, but...The computer runs VERY slow when it is enabled and perfent when disabled. also I cannot open the hard drive to view files. Under properties it says nothing is on it. This one has got me stumped.
Yes, HD is bad. When enabled, your PC sees it but takes along time finding contents and when contents found, will not be able to read it. If it contains important data, best is you use a data recovery software such as GetDataBack available at www.runtime.org. If recovered or will not allow you to, try deleting partition and/or reformat. Thereafter do a Scandisk.
On a similar problem, took me close to 48 hrs to recover movies and MP3s (at least most of them). Used Partition Magic to partition, format. and when I used Norton Utilities Disk Doctor, a lot of bad sectors showed up. I ended simply replacing since I already purchased another where the recovery was saved.
Hope this be of help to you.
I hope you have better luck.
