Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST380011A 80 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Hi, I have barracuda 7200.7 ST380011A HDD. I use it as an external HDD. Basically it was exposed to the dust and light. And just this morning one of those microchips over heated and burnt out when I turned it on. There was quick fire flame and smoke (Pretty scary)on the one part of that chip. I disconnected fromt he power right away and now when I turn it on the smoke and flame comes out again. What should I do to recover my files on this HDD?

Hello,

Wow! I hope no one was injured. If the info is retrieviable, I recommend intalling a new hard drive with an os install on it. Set the jumpers on the "flame" hard drive to slave, connect as a second hard drive and power on your system. Hopefully no flames and all systems go. You simply copy the file from the second drive to the new drive.

NOTE: Without reinstalling the software from a disk, you will need to point any apps that need the old file to the NEW location of the file. (i.e.- if MS Ofiice Word is on the old drive and you open a Word doc, you may need to tell the location of the MS Office file you want to use.)

Good Luck

i think you must place a jumper on the back side of the hdd.
If there isn't any jumper, it is a "slave".

When you place a jumper on the correct spot, the hard drive will become the master hdd. The position of the jumper can be found on the hdd itself.

Search for "master" and put the jumper there

 If your running XP , go to control panal , Admin tools>Computer Management >Storage > Disk Management . Look for it there . If its there see if it says what file system . If none format it . If it isnt there then chack the jumper on the hard drive it self . It should be set to master or cable select .
