Hard drive not spinning up

Hi
i committed the cardinal sin of not powering down before i plugged in my 250 gig hard drive. saw a spark as i connected the power and have obviously cooked the circuit board. it now gets REALLY hot and doesnt spin up.
Can i purchase a new circuit board to get it operational to recover the data.
regards
Phil

If it's not spinning most likely it has fried PCB or bad enclosure.
You can try to remove the internal drive from it and connect it directly to PC. If still not spinning then the problem is with logic board. Try to find another drive of the same model and replace the card. But as far as I know most often it doesn't work.

Hi you would have to buy a replacement drive that works that is the same as the one you zapped and change over the board to see if you did any other damage to the drive motor or send it to a recovery person which would probably be cheaper in the long run.

I have two hard drives.. WD 320 gigs & Seagate 250 gigs. Both drives are not booting. No sounds, nothing. I tried the freezer technique but not worth it. There's no clicking sound. I think the disc inside...


looking inside was a big error, that floods the internals with dust
the heads will now crash. but its dead anyway,, so no foul.
use your ears, not looking inside. gee. whirrrrrrr, try a good drive and listen, train those ears.....!!!
if it dont spin, or you can not feel the gyro effect (try that on good drive)
then the drive is bad. (or no power, +5v and +12v are mandatory)
you only said Seatage, they make vast types of drives, so I really dont know what you have, not really.

the drive (SATA/PATA but NOT SCSI or SAS) must spin up
with power, if not
1:bad power,
2; bad drive.
end of story.

ever held a gyro, like in boy scouts or? or NAVY.
it fights you when you ,try to change directions, of the drive case.
the gyro effect. all HDD do this., spinning at full speed.

is that enough help, if confused read an A+ book, all this is covered in one book.

if not pata/sata drives, the controller or drive must be commanded
to spin up. (servers use these drives)

How do i transfer my data from my old la cie 80 gig 107443, to my new la cie 250 gig 300770? both boxes look the same, with the same connections [firewire, usb, 2 others].


Connect both drives to the computer at the same time. If you don't have enough USB ports, connect one to a USB port and the other to a Firewire port. Open a file management window (Explorer in Window, Finder in Mac OS) for each drive. Click and hold the left mouse button (only mouse button on most Mac models in the window for the 80 Gig drive and drag across several folders/files to select them. Release the mouse button, then click on and drag the selected group to the new drive window. When this copy operation is done, repeat with another group of files.

You could select (-A or -A) and drag everything on the old drive at one time, but sometimes the system will bog down on copying large amounts of data (greater than 4-8 GB at a time).
