If the drive is totally dead, meaning, it is not turning on and not detected, I afraid the data is loss, however, try to check for possible professional data recovery in your area to see if they can still hav a way to salvage your data.

My notebook fell off table, did not break externaly but now fails to detect hard drive . what can i do to fix


Hello,

Unfortunitly, you hard drive's needle may have been knocked out of wack and will not access the data anymore. 2 solutions here:

1. New hard drive and reinstall everything. (Easy)
2. Let a data recovery provider retrive the information from the damage disk and put it on a new one. (Expensive and time consuming.)

Good Luck

Seagate Freeagent 500gb Ext. HD not working.


Hi,
it´s my first time on this topic, but I´d recommend reinstalling it´s drivers, it sounds like it´s stuck there. Or just to be sure it is working ok, the both connections, esata and usb. If any of them work it´s ok. If not, come back, we´ll figure something out for you.

Lacie ext HD 500gb turns on but doesnt read


If the spinning sound is not clean anymore there is damage to the hard drive and I doubt it will be easy to get the data out. If the drive still shows up in the disk management you can try to access it with a tool like ddrescue and then run photorec on the created image. If you want somebody else to do it for you there is Data Recovery NYC. Also there is good informaation on hard drive repairs on hddguru.com.

Hard drive motor just cant get a full head of steam going


When the motor and the heads start getting noisy, clicking and whirring, and the hard disk access time gets abnormally longer than usual, that means that the disk can fail at any time.

Better saving all your data and get a replacement drive.

If this happened on two Lacie and they did not receive any shock, then call Lacie to complain : Contact Support

Seagate drive PROBLEM


I have the same problem. I've been use the HD for about one month and now, after making all my backups and copying them in the HD, it crashed! I believe there is a way to open it and recover the data directly from the SATA port. However, if done incorrectly it will void the warranty. I'll be checking here for any other possible solutions.
