Hard Disk Quantum QML20000LD-A

I need to repair a Quantum hard disk (QML20000LD-A) with some important data on it. I have found the electronic demaged, one smd resistor was broken and lost, so I'd need to know the value of this resistor to replace it. Where can I find some electronic schematics of this hard disk.

Hi, may I offer an alternative solution? You may want to try and replace the entire PCB assembly rather than repair. I would assume that the Quantum QML20000LD-A is a few years old and so many of the same brand/model would be lying around computer repair shops. Even if defective, these drives can be: 1) direct parts source; and 2) remove/use the entire board. You can even find this kind of HD from old CPUs (166-550 MHZ.) I believe you can get them relatively cheap and faster. Hope this somewhat helps. Cheers.

Will a Quantum Fireball hdd replace a Sata hdd.Both are 3.5 and 5/12v or do you need to re configure them?


SATA (serial ATA) is a connection type, not a brand of hard drive. Any brand of hard drive will replace any other, as long as they are both SATA drives. The data and power connections are standard between drives, as are mounting dimensions. Normally, with SATA drives there are no jumpers or other configuration you need to deal with. Each SATA drive has its own connection to the motherboard, so you don't need to set master/slave jumpers like you would on the parallel ATA drives using the wide data cable.

Not a good sign. You will need to pay to have the data recovered if you need it. Otherwise, plan on getting a new disk and reinstall Windows.

Does the Intel 82801 chipset recognize the full capacity of a quantum 20gb hard drive?


Yes it should recognize such small drive. Note that the partitions on the drive will affect how big drives are shown.

If the drive is partitioned into two 10GB parts then you should have C: 10GB and D: 10GB

Note that if the drive is partitioned not to use the full capasity then the capasity it is partitioned to will be shown instead.

Also Note that computer hard drives the capasity is not accurate presentation of the GB available. it will always be somewhat less than the reported size, for example 1000GB disk is shown as 931.50GB
500GB disk is shown as 465.76GB and so on.
