Question about Seagate Momentus 4200.2 100 GB Hard Drive
SOURCE: Seagate Momentus 4200.2 120GB
Some laptop manufacturers use the 4 pins to the side of the data connection to force Master / Slave. Do you have a jumper shorting 2 of these pins? If so, remove the jumper and try it again in your external caddy. Had this problem 2 weeks ago with a Toshiba notebook having the Blue Screen of Death. Removed the jumper and then the disk worked perfectly!! Strange but True.

There could be a million reasons that your getting this i/o error. First I would check the cable to make sure it's snug on the pins, and then my suggestion is to follow this link HERE and pick the question that best describes what your OS and equipment list are. This is a great spot to solve most of the problems, They also have software you can download to test the drive to see if it's dead or just loose.
