Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500 GB SATA Hard Drive

1 Answer

Seagate Harddrive Stopped working

I have a Seagete SATA/300 500gig Harddrive I purchased 7 months ago (at BestBuy). Today, the drive started making strange chirping noises and froze the computer up (it is the secondary drive). The system could not find either hard drives upon reboot. After disconnecting this drive, the computer was able to boot up fine with the main drive. Since I cannot get the system to boot up with this drive attached, I cannot run any diagnostics on it. I am assuming the harddrive is bad. If this is the case, I need to know what my next step is. This drive is under manufactures warranty. I used it for storing video files, so it contains about 270gig of data that I do need recovered. Thanks - Paul

There was a surge of power threw your system you need by an industrial power surge protector for your system now for the harddrive ive found that if you turn over and mount on static bag with box your harddrive should run long enough for you too collect and move data too another drive but never place on metal surface
i had the same problem i had a surge blew my hard drive a friend suggested turn over and then do a dump to another drive
after that i went out and purchased an industrial surge protector cost a pretty penny but has saved my system many times its called a belkin industrial surge protector about 80 dollars cheapies dont close quick enough hope this helped

How do i retriev my stuff of it to put on computer?


Assuming the harddrive is working, plug it in and click start and my computer( or computer if you are running vista or 7) and then in this window click the name of the harddrive. Then drag and drop?

If you used 3rd party software to back up your data you will need to install that first and run the recovery option

Hello mmincalgary:

Hi, Looks like it will be a motherboard issue not Maxtor (ATA) and Barracuda (SATA) combination. So the question really would be if your motherboard would accept and recognize the Barracuda SATA. Post back with your motherboard details, (brand/model/version). Kind regards.

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.
