If you ARE SURE you know what you're doing it is possible to get parts off another drive and repair yours. You could even fix it without having to pay for data recovery. Have you done any troubleshooting on it? For instance does the spindle motor jiggle a little for a second when you plug the drive in? If you get lucky, depending on the problem, you might just have to replace the controller board or spindle motor. Not so lucky would be the head armature assembly. Tough job, but can be done if you're very careful. You can lose your data on that one if you don't know what you're doing. If you aren't sure, I can help you troubleshoot if you want. If you know what you're doing, ok.

Hi,

You can go ahead and buy another hard disk. but i would suggest you to contact your local Vendor or a Local Technician on the Data Backup and restoring it.

(Its Expensive these days) Better search for a cost effecient and safe solution...

Kindly give a feed back to Improve my statistics and to see If it was helpful for you...

Thanks and Regards

    Does my d530 CMT have a SATA connector?


    Answers to your questions:
    1. Yes
    2. Very likely
    3. a Google search should show you what the connectors look like.
    4 HP/Compaq do a good job of providing documentation. Go to hp.com and put in your system information. You should be able to locate motherboard diagrams there. If you can't let me know and I'll try to locate them.

    What new HDD will match my Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8?


    Mark,
    You can use any size HDD in your computer as a slave and it does not have to be an exact match for the maxtor. You will however need the make sure that the connections on the new drive match. For example SATA drives will not attache to an IDE cable and vice versa. The drive that you mentioned is an IDE style drive so unless your MOBO has SATA connectors on it you will need to buy an IDE/EIDE drive.

    I HAVE A MAXTOR DIAMOND MAX PLUS 9 60GB ATA/133 HDD. I HAVE LOST HALF OF MY DRIVE CAPACITY. dANI115@COX.NET


    try using a partitioning utility like gparted, pmagic, partition magic etc. this will tell you whether your drive is full, partitioned, how much is used and if the partition takes up the full disk. also, try doing scandisk on it to see if there are errors and to get the errors fixed

    Internal labtop hard drive


    The drive you have is a IDE, Ultra DMA 133, 4200 RPM.

    If you are running XP or Vista you can purchase any brand hard drive. Recommend Maxtor. Just make sure it is IDE and for a desktop.

    Hope this helps.
