Hello everyone...
I bought this hard drive 5 months ago and it has been working just fine. A week ago it just decided not to work anymore, it started beeping and then after few seconds it just shut down. My computer can't find it anymore on both my Mac and windows.
Can I do something about it?

Thanks :)

Yeah, the usual stuff now: take the platters out and put them on a CD-ROM, but read at slow speed (2X is the best).....

I don't know if this a joke post or not... damn....

Looks like it might now be infected with Covid. Maybe give it a swab

-______- First it's not a joke.
Second I thought there is something I can do to repair it. And no I'm not paying 500 euro to get the data back. So I thought maybe one of you have suggestions on what the cause of the beeping can be.

Definitely a charger, a later model too.

I can only assume this is a joke post, but hope not :-(

This image should only show what's inside it! The HDD came with a cover and a charger of course!
My problem is the beeping! It beeps for 20 seconds when plugged and then it just turns off.

we were refering to the hdd family it belongs to, which, by a horrifying coincidence, is called Charger.

Anyway, to answer your question: the unit has problems with read-write heads most probably. This raises another bunch of problems you won't be able to handle at home. Disassembling it was a bad move, but perhaps it is still recoverable by someone who knows his stuff.
It needs proper evaluation. I even doubt many of the notveryskilled DR companies can succeed with these...
