Hello,

I have a problem with my 4 TB Seagate Barracuda drive (ST4000LM024) - it is not recognized in BIOS most of the time and sometimes Linux sees it (via lsblk), but trying to read anything from it throws IOCTL errors (i.e. while using fdisk).
The drive is almost 4 years old and was a part of a small ARM-based Linux server (for some small home automation stuff and other services) and was working fine (until couple days ago, where it just stopped working).

Could anyone please listen to the sound of the drive and advice if that is a physical (heads?) malfunction or the PCB needs replacement/fixing?
I cleaned the contacts of the PCB already, but it did not change anything, so it is either busted PCB or something with the heads...
I can try to fix the board (or replace it if I'll find a donor board), but I have no clean room to fix the heads...

Any help is appreciated!

BTW: SeaTools does not see the drive (neither Windows since the OS does not see it, nor the bootable SeaTools image).

Thanks!

Hello,

it sounds like a head problem. Surfaces might be also damaged.
Do not run it a lot if you need the data from it.
