Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST380011A 80 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Seagate drive will not spin up.

Pc power supply was taken out by a power surge, which apparently has taken out the controller on the disk drive. Are these controllers available?

    Had exactly the same sequence of events, same reasons.



    I bought an outboard USB controller but the drive wouldn't spin up,

    and a burning resistor/semiconductor smelled.

    Looks like a bypass chip cap where the PS enters.



    Bought a new 'puter (MoBo probably went out as well) but still need the data desperately.

    I'll probably try finding a rebuilt identical drive cheap and replacing the whole board on the drive.

    If nothing else looks burned, I may try just lifting that bypass cap for long enough to dump the data.

In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".

No power on seagate


probably the hard disk is dead

usually the supply controller on the hard disk ie the main reason.

unfortunate its difficult and not worth to try to fix it when you remember the damage than can be done to the info on the disk

sorry

Man it sounds like it just died on you out of the blue... Maybe you had a power surge or something and you didn't know it.

Starts to spin then stops


Either the power supply is failing, or the drive has gone defective.
Check with IOmega, it's probably under warranty.
If it isn't, open up the casing and see whose drive (ie, Seagate, Samsung, Maxtor) they used, because the drive itself may be under warranty by the manufacturer.
Before doing that though, connect the drive inside your PC and see if it works.
If it does, just permanently mount it in there because the external boxs' power supply is shot.
If it works in the PC and you really need it to be external, just buy an external hard disk enclosure.
They are about $30 in most places, and that'll FixYa right up!

My portable hard disk is not detecting by my PC/Laptop. it's working on other PC/Laptop. and i also installed my hard disk drivers.it also giving beep sounds.


The power supplied by the pc laptop on the USB is insufficient to run the hard drive.

If you have an external power supply option on the hard drive, please use that.

Hdd power problem


Hi!

Check your HDD with HDD monitor utility to see if it's ok. You can try this one:
http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-disk-health-monitoring-utility.htm
If your HDD has bad SMART or power controller or smth like that - then you definitely need to replace HDD.
Also issue may be caused by your PC power supply or motherboard power controller. If HDD monitor shows that your hard drive is "alive", then try to "hang" your HDD to another power cord from your PC power supply and try to connect to other IDE/SATA port on your motherboard.

Also I'd suggest you to try your HDD on any other PC.

Hi,

Sata drives use both 5V and 12V power. The standard SATA connector found on most current power supplies carries both. If you're trying to rig up some temporary power just hit your local PC shop and ask for a Molex to Sata adapter that will connect your old power supply to the new drive or pickup a USB to SATA adapter kit as they usually have there own Sata capable power adapter.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Its not being recognized..


Hello,

It sounds like your problem is in the power adapter. You should be able to hear and feel the drive spinning when you turn it on if the power supply was working. There are replacement cases available that you can put your drive in that should get it back online. You should be able to open the external case and remove the drive. If you have a desktop PC available you should also be able to connect the drive to one of the hard drive controllers in the PC and access your data that way. If you check our site at: www.ccl-la.com We have a product review on an external case we use that works great. The case will work with either a SATA or IDE drive.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.
