Seagate Barracuda issues
I have a seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ( 400gig) 3.aae firmware. i came home the other day and turned on my computer and no power.
At first i thought it was the power supply so i switched it out. then on the 3rd power supply ( lol) I unplugged all my (periferals) and my computer powered up. plugged everything back in one by one and when i plugged the HD back in it wouldnt power up again.
I tried to get an enclousure for it but thats when i figured the hd was at fault. when i plugged it into the enclosure the enclosure wouldnt work. i disconnected it and the enclosure got power.
I have some stuff i would like to get off the Hd so does anyone know what i can do to get it working again.
Im going to pick up another Hd but i have an external one i can move the stuff i want to.

I've seen a couple of dead drives like that.... Some people have gone to great length and found an IDENTICAL drive and replaced the circut borad and have been sucessful.“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
