Dear all hddguru,
I got this huge problem with hitachi deskstar drive, cause this is 500gb ATA drive.
After some examine on the harddrive, here are some problem I found.
1. PCB is Good
2. After opening the case found that there is 6 head with 3 platter.
3. some of the head are bend a little bit, still can try to fix it. Done.
4. I also check the motor. it seem like motor seizure. I try to spin it with strength to check the seizure problem. cannot move at all. Maybe this is the problem from this drive
5. Try to hot gun using (Toshiba method). still not good.
my question is, are there anyway to seize the spindle like drilling the motor ( Mr. Pepe way for seagate ). cause I still do not confident with drilling. (
sorry Pepe , my experience still not enough )
my client really needs the data, cause He has a huge collection from His first son until His third daughter. He also have His wedding ceremony in the data. Can Anybody help me in this situation. cause I also feel sorry to Him.
Any advice or any comment will be helpfully.
