Hello,

Thank you in advance for any tips, help, etc.

I have a Spinpoint ST2000LM003 drive that after just a few years suddenly is not detected by windows. It will not boot.

The BIOS does see it and list it by name OK.

In Windows Drive Manager (with the drive connected via usb) it briefly flickers that it detected it and then does not.

I tried a few tools like segate tools, R-Studio but they did not detect the HD.

The drive spins up and then makes some unique sounds, kind of like a scratching, churning sound.....

I attempted to record the audio, my MIC sucks so not very accurate, but wondering if an experienced HD person can recognize..

audio of the HD spinning up and then sounds:

Thank you very much for any advice on this.

Sounds an awful lot like the heads are seeking the 0 track and cannot locate it. I suspect the tools you reference are Windows based.
Do you have a Linux box? hdparm and other tools in Linux provide quite a bit more info than Windows.
