  1. Jac I did noticed when doing the BSY that everybody reported a spin up time of 7.4 seconds or so. When I did mine the spin up time was more than 9 seconds, so maybe the sticky bearings theory have something to do with this case. I didn't have time last night to try the disk in a different PC. The other 2 at home don't have SATA. I ran a CHKDSK and it came back ok. I will try it tonight again on the SATA on the motherboard and see if the CHKDSK did something. In the meantime I backed up everything I wanted from the HD. By the way, you got me laughing with that thing about having to put up with 50+ years of whining about the "remember the pictures we had of the kids growing up and you were too dumb to back it up" Thanks again for you help.

  2. Jaclaz You just became my new hero. I took an USB hard drive I had here and plugged the Seagate there , plugged into my computer and presto. It just showed up like nothing ever happened to it. I am right now dumping all the contents into a second backup. Thank you very much, now, if you don't mind, would you care to explain me why or what happened to the disk? The USB case, for what I can tell, is using the same SATA connection, so shouldn't the problem, if it is related with the HD PCB be present as well? The USB driver there only converts the interface to the PC to USB, but the interface between the USB driver in the case and the HD is still the SATA. Furthermore, can I fix it and what can I do to prevent it from happening again? In any case I already retrieved 6 years worth of family pictures, so my fears of not seeing my wife for a long time are gone Thanks again for your help.
  3. Hello I have a problem with a Seagate HDD that seems similar to the one described here but not exactly. It is one of the infamaous 7200.11 and here is the description of what is going on. The HD in question is a secondary drive on my PC, and a few days ago, on power on, we got a blue screen of death showing up indicating that a problem with a disk was detected and windows had been shut down. It will then suggest to do a CHKDSK /F, which it was funny because it would not allow any other thing but to turn the computer off. Since the CHKDSK was indicating F I proceeded to disconnect the Seagate drive and then Windows started up no problems. I ran the BIOS and noticed that the drive, when connected, did showed up as the correct size, 1TB, but every time I would try to power up with the disk connected or enabled in the BIOS it will crash the windows even when it is just a secondary drive. Just for fun I did the BSY procedure and I got all the communications and responses back correctly, however, the blue screen of death still shows up on power on. Has anybody here experience anything like this? I have a good chunk of data on that drive and I would like to retrieve it before I throw it in the garbage. Thanks in advance. Ed
