Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500 GB SATA Hard Drive

1 Answer

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 Not being recognized

My iomega external HDD fell over the other day and now my computer will not recognize it. It lights up, and runs but there seems to be a clicking sound of some sort. Is there a simple solution amongst a common problem or should I just take it to a PC repair shop. I have opened up the HDD and I cannot find anything that seems broken or loose. Thank you for your time.

Clicking is not good. You need to contact IOMEGA SUPPORT on their web site and run through the troubleshooting steps then call for possible warranty action. The clicking is consistent with a failed hard drive. If you can remove the hard drive to read the part number and serial number, contact SEAGATE on their web site and go through the troubleshooting procedure for a possible warranty replacement. All hard drive manufacturers will cheerfully replace drives still under warranty if you carefully follow their procedures. Good Luck!

If you have another computer, you could try to plug it in there as a slave/secondary drive so that you can try to see if My Computer would still recognize it. If it works, then great, you can still do backups. If not, and you really need that data, you might want to get the services of a data recovery company.

If the hard drive has failed, which it sounds to be the case and it does happen even to new hard drives, and is still under warranty with Seagate, go to the following page to start a warranty claim for the drive.

You can also check to make sure your hard drive is still under warranty there as well.

Hard drive not recognized by vista or xp


Did you go to microsoft and try to see if you could update any drivers or software that might help you? it's free (microsoft.com) It couldn't hurt to try, have microsoft scan for updates, and it will come up with a list of what's needed or required. Also on your computer, under control panel, updates, make sure you turn off automatic install and allow you to pick what you would like to install. hope it helps, e-mail at tallcoolone100@yahoo.com

bricked hard drive? Would folling this lead to a full hard drive format or just unbricking a drive like people sat it does?? Also any other ways that might help would be great to know, heres what i'm talking about! "Fixing The Drive NOTE: Commands for you to type are in red boldface. Pay attention to upper & lower case - it is important. Turn on power to the RS232-to-TTL adapter and the hard drive. After a few seconds, Press CTRL+z. You should then see a prompt like this: F3 T> If not, swap TX & RX wires. Access Level 2 (type /2): F3 T>/2 (enter) F3 2> Then spin down the (disconnected) motor: F3 2>Z (enter) Spin Down Complete Elapsed Time 0.147 msecs F3 2> Very carefully, remove the cardstock that you placed between the PCB and the drive head contacts. Carefully replace and tighten the 3 loose screws. I suggest using a small piece of masking tape to help you hold the screws while you put them back in place. Then start the motor: F3 2>U (enter) Spin Up Complete Elapsed Time 7.093 secs F3 2> Next go to Level 1 (type /1): F3 2>/1 (enter) And do a S.M.A.R.T. erase (create S.M.A.R.T. sector): F3 1>N1 (enter) Cycle power to the drive, then do partition regeneration: F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 (enter) After 15-30 seconds, you should see something like: Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 14, Max Certify Rewrite Retries = 00C8 User Partition Format 10% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 00004339, ErrCode 00000080, Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs Do not turn off drive until you see this message. Once seen, drive can be turned off. Power down everything, place drive back into your computer, and confirm that it's working." Thanks.
