Question about Seagate ST1.2 ST68022CF 8 GB ATA-33 Hard Drive
I had 2 I/O Magic Gigabank 8gb portable drives. They both spontaneously stopped being detected in Windows XP. One clicks in a cyclical way and seems to want to start. The other has a similar cyclical electronic noise but without so much clicking. This problem seems too common with these - see http://www.hackphoto.com/2006/01/21/io-magic-gigabank-8gb/ I need to recover the data on both drives, hopefully without the expense of a data recovery service. I took apart the drives and carefully removed the drives, which are both Seagate ST1.2 ST68022CF 8 gb drives, 2006 vintage. I plugged each into a Compact Flash reader and tried to detect and read them. The problem persists, except that with one of them, it sometimes reads is detected on the F drive but does not read, and it also seems to stall or delay other programs. A solution to reading and recovering the files would be appreciated. Thanks. Jbones
You could try to download and install FTK - Forensic Tool kit to grab the info. But sadly if the memory won't detect, your looking at having to use expensive software/hardware to grab the info.
