Question about Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 40 (52049H4) 20.5 GB Hard Drive
After trying many option like hitting, changing the circuit board and freezing my Maxtor 40GB drive, it simply does not want to enable within the pc BIOS. Desperately trying to copy my data from it, I opened the drive and took out the actual disk and replacing it in another opened drive, now it does not want to cycle up. Any clues or was this the last straw?
Thats was dangerous move, data wise! First off you can't really expose those disk to dust or the air for a matter of fact! Disks need to be opened in a clean room!(No Dust whatsoever) Remember that the disks and the thing that reads the disk are as far apart as less than the diameter of a human hair! Secondly, did you put the disks in in the another drive of the exact model? Cause if you didn't then it not gonna work. If your data is that important, then you should take the drive to a data recovery professional but be prepared to sell a kidney to pay for it! lol! Other than that, being that you already took out the disks you can still find the EXACT model and try it in that! regards, babb
