We have seen a number of websites lately cloning information from our pages. One of them is heads sticktion to the platter surface. Don’t attempt to open the drive by yourself – you will damage the platters and this will make your data unrecoverable. Can read data for the first 40sec or so and then there is no FAT to be seen and data flow stops. It is quite a complicated job and requires use of specialized expensive equipment and deep knowledge of hard drive design and data recovery technology to repair the firmware.

When the drive starts reading data from such unreadable bad sector it could start freezing, scratching and sometimes even clicking: Most times it refuses to spin up, although Windows can see it.

All the information below is based solely on our experience and we do not make any claims regarding reliability of the specific wd5000aajx. That’s usually the only way to retrieve as much files as possible from such sectors.
Heads are normally parked on the parking ramp outside of the platters, but sometimes after a fall or abnormal termination they fail to return to their regular parking position and are left on the surface. Physical drive can be seen always as The drive spins up, and and firmwre heads start clicking with a constant or intermittent sound while unsuccessfully trying to locate firmware zone: All this leads to further damage to the surface, heads and causes more data loss.

After some period of time magnetic media the platters are covered with starts to degrade and magnetic domains can’t turn in the desired direction by writing element of the head. Stay away from those companies. There is one more problem that is typical for all Western Digital drives: If you hear your Western Digital hard drive making some other unusual noises visit our Hard Drive Sounds page for more examples.
Insert system disk and press enter”, “Hard drive not recognized”, “Drive Mount Failure” or some other hard drive boot error. In our lab we use specialized software and hardware to rebuild these parameters or transfer them from fried board to make donor PCB fully firmwxre with damaged drive.
Immediately after the motor stops spinning they stick to the ideally smooth surface and it becomes impossible to free them without proper tools and experience.
I’m hoping it is just the PCB. After power down it will now sometimes spin up, attempt to load, but immediately retract and spin down.
Should this occur the computer would reboot or shut down completely, you would normally notice acrid smell of smoke coming from your PC and when powered on the drive would not spin up at all and appear to frimware completely dead.
London, UK Western Digital drives also have common problem with spindle seizure. Usually this is a sign of damaged or crashed heads and it means the drive needs to be opened in a class clean room environment in order to replace head stack assembly.
Can read data for the first 40sec or so and then there is no FAT to be seen and data flow stops. This complex and precise procedure requires a lot of experience and use of specialized firrmware to maintain platters in perfect alignment. It is quite a complicated job and requires use of specialized expensive equipment and deep knowledge of hard drive design and data recovery technology to repair the firmware.
Western Digital drives also have common problem with spindle firmwzre.
One of them is heads sticktion to the platter surface. Data recovery in such case involves removing platters from the hard drive in clean room environment and putting them into matching donor.

We have seen a number of websites lately cloning information from our pages. It doesn’t make any noise at all and doesn’t spin up wd5000aahs all. Quite often bad power supply unit combined with power streak is usually enough to fry spindle driver chip on the electronics and make the data inaccessible. Any further reading attempts would just add up to the problems and could make your data unrecoverable.

In such case the drive usually spins up fine, it doesn’t click but has one of the following symptoms: Don’t firmwarf to open the drive by yourself – you will damage the platters and this will make your data unrecoverable. If one of the modules gets corrupted the hard drive fails to initialize correctly and stops working making the data inaccessible.
This is how bad sectors appear. At the moment it is not possible to fix this kind of problem at home.
