Question about Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 200 GB Hard Drive
I diagnosed my external hardisk with a scandisk of windows. While it was on going - my nephew accidentally unplug the power supply of the external hardisk...so i tried turning it back on,,,then it cannot be read by the pc anymore though during the start-up the Hardisk can be detected but cannot be read and causes the windows start-up to hang. Even if I tried connecting the hardisk directly to the SATA connection of the motherboard...but still it cannot be read though it was detected - the PC will hang. I tried everything even with the use of MAC. I even tried some software that will boot directly trough DVD-ROM and try to recover it. But still though it can be seen in a window style screen - but when I try to click it (drive letter) - the system hangs. But I think the hardisk is still running coz I can still feel the heat in the hardisk when I touch it. Please help ...thanks a lot....
I appears the volume may have been corrupted. YOu should run data recovery on the drive if you need any of the content. If not reformatting the drive, should restore it. If the contents are not important, or you have it backed up, go ahead and connect it to the MACINTOSH and format it for MS-DOS.
Unless it is physically damaged ( clicking, beeping, knocking ) it shoud be usable.
Hope this helps.
