Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 300 GB SATA Hard Drive
Problem .....looking at the back of the hard drive the medium sized black
square appears to have had the wiring from underneath burn through
as you can see the black material has melted.
I think this is called an IC unit. How can we retrieve our files if we cannot
get power to the hard drive because of this maybe burn out situation?
Would appreciate a very quick reply.
There are specialist companies that make good profits by retrieving files from damaged hard drives for people who haven't had the foresight to back them up. If the files are important or essential you should consider using such a company and your insurance might pay part of the cost.
If the files aren't very important a local computer boffin could dismantle your hard drive and fit the hard discs into a healthy drive of the same type and it might work...

yes, probably this can be solved.
does the harddrive still have a letter assigned?
if so. go into command prompt (start->run->type"cmd")
when the black window pops up write:
chkdsk x: /r (where x is the letter assigned to your 120gb disk)
please reply if your harddrive doesnt have a letter assigned.

if you plugged or unplugged a HD to a computer when the computer is running, you have quite probably fried the HD *unless it's an EXTERNAL HD with a USB connection, which could be more resistant to this type of abuse).
I suggest you download SeaTools from Seagate and check the HD, but I think it;s pretty sure to say that it's gone
