Hi Experts,

I bought a new Seagate Ironwolf 8tb from Amazon (third party seller). Upon arriving, I plugged into my desktop, connected power & sata. As I was waiting for new sata cables to arrive, I removed one from my optical drive and plugged it into new hdd. Upon booting, hdd wasn't recognized, and continuously kept beeping. I tried switching power cable & sata cable from my working 2gb hdd with no luck.

Did new hdd arrive dead?

Or is it possible the hdd isn't being supplied sufficient power?

I did go back to the seller and have returned the drive. Now a little sceptical of buying the same 8tb ironwolf again. Will check all the available options.
