Question about Western Digital (WD3000JS) 300 GB SATA Hard Drive

1 Answer

My Western Digital (WD3000JS) 300 GB SATA Hard Drive won't boot up anymore. i've had it in an external drive for a while but it now just starts spin up and then turns itself off. i've tried another external device and it also does the same in that. other drives work in them so the issue is with the drivce.

This is due to over-heating / damage on the PCB. You would need to swap the pcb with a matching pcb; rewrite the ata module, g-list, p-list and then attempt to read. This requires special tools and normally done with a data recovery company.

SATA drive position is determined by the plug on the motherboard, not a jumper. Jumper settings are for PATA drives (much older).

Get a new case and transfer the hard drive to the new case. You can get cases at any store that sells computer parts and several places online.

It has a high pitch ringing sound when it is powered what could cause this and what could i do about it


If the sound is truly coming from the hard drive, then the drive might be bad. Inside the hard disk there are moving parts. You may have a bad drive. I would back up all the information on it and Western Digital offers good replacement policies and warranties. You can have an advance RMA where they will ship you a new drive and you ship them the old one as long as the warranty on the drive is still good.
