Oh come on! Some people here have been around computers for decades. I've heard of problems with Maxtors, and occasionally with Raptors due to their high speeds, but motor burnout? Never heard that used before. Probably just a new local idiom to describe an old problem.Noobs all of you!!! 8)
Ok, I'll accept that about the "noob all of you". The phrase you use might still be a local thing and not everyone has heard this description. I have heard of bearing failure, for instance, which causes the motor to freeze and might be the same thing (don't know for sure). Its still a very rare thing these days.Well I didnt mean it as an insult
But no I have heard that phrase for ever, especialy when it was more common when hdds were in the 5400 rpm realm 10 years ago.
I have great luck after only 4 hours or so I think this has only failed once for me.I guess....
Easy way to get data off a HDD that doesnt spin.... freeze it for 12 hours. (if your lucky its not a peice that has physicaly broke.
It's just a phrase. If a disk stops working, it does me little good to try to decipher why it failed. All i care about is that it no workie, and I replace it. Crash, died, flamed, burned, burned out, crapped out, belly up, petered out, dirt nap. It all means I can't read my data.I've heard alot recently about friends hard drives "burning out". Is this an actual term for the hard drive failing in a particular way? or is it just a phrase that people are using to describe their hard drive failing?
Yeah, whatever. :roll: I don't need to know why it failed and I can still try my bag of tricks to retreive the data.Boo! If you know why It failed, you can try data recovery on it, like freezing it.
Golf clapHmmm, it started to look like you were throwing some jargon around there. I think until you perform a post mortem on a nonfunctional drive, it's a bit unrealistic to run about shouting "DRIVE BURNOUT...DRIVE BURNOUT!!!!".
Yeah, whatever. :roll:Boo! If you know why It failed, you can try data recovery on it, like freezing it.
