I have a Seagate ST3640323AS which is still currently working. I noticed that no one else on the list had the 640GB model or had the 323 near the end. I purchased it from Newegg on 10/10/2008 and started using it about a week later. When I use testdisk, it says this under one of my partitions:

"Incorrect number of heads/cylinder 255 <NTFS != 299 <HD>

Incorrect number of sectors per track 63 <NTFS> != 12 <HD>"

I'm not sure what this means or if it has anything to do with the problem being reported in this topic. Is there a way I could correct this error and is my hard drive still going to stop being detected?

I haven't spoken to Timha about the dates, his hard drive may be some sort of terminator sent back from the future to unleash epic fail upon humanity... Which really wouldn't surprise me.

Fixed:

yes Nichev ,

me and my barracuda are from the future, it is quite bleak, Seagate and their moderators (his name is Alan and his beeetchh Brad, or is it the other way) have taken over the world, they use Thailand as a homebase base, ....the future is dismal with absolutely no DATA to be had....where once we had 21Gb of tera patrick now we jerk-off to public television....we no longer have photos of our families we now have to rely on our kids stick figure drawings ...the Seagate future is quite bleak and BUSY

Just thought I would add my Seagate 1 TB HDD to the list ... BIOS fails to detect drive.

This is bloody ridiculous guys, it didn't take me long to find my way here, but now that I am here and I've read every post in this thread in addition to about 6 other forums (including the censored official seagate forum and newegg's) I've come to the conclusion that, no matter what actually has happened, fraud or the biggest labeling mistake in recorded human history, seagate is now actively trying to suppress information about this issue. My first inkling my 6 week old 500gb might be dying was when I rebooted my computer into a DISK BOOT FAILURE -- the drive had stopped being detected by bios so I tried multiple sata cables, power supplies, and 5 different motherboards in a vain attempt to save some of my data. I tried the old freezer trick too, but by that time I was pretty sure it was a serious manufacturing defect or failure that had caused the crash. My wife lost a lot of valuable data with this crash, and though we have some backups, some data is gone for good. I had used speedfan to monitor smart performance less than 72 hours before, and the readings were all excellent. Such a rapid failure and lack of apparent hardware damage (no clicks, warbling, et al) leads me to believe the data might still be recoverable with a firmware flash. So where the %*!% (%)#@$ !$^!@$%^*&*!@%^ is Seagate in all of this?

Seagate has lost my business FOREVER, and I've been using Seagate since 1998. I've also been recommending them to customers, family, and friends, but man, this is one story that's going to come out at every lan party I ever go to for the rest of my life. And it's not even over yet. I only registered tonight, but I'm gonna be here for the entire long haul. I got this one bookmarked. I really cannot wait to see how it ends. We're not even going to try an RMA. I trust that the community will figure out something here far more than I do that Seagate might actually care about my defective product or data loss. I've already read way too many stories here and elsewhere about that whole farce.

Am I allowed to say "f*** you seagate" on this forum? Please? Pretty please with sugar on? I was so nice and careful with the rest of my post! :blushing:

Hey I just did a search on google for "seagate barracuda 7200.11" and this thread is about number 15! With all the attention we may get it in the first five suggestions then anyone who searches for one will come across this thread and know not to buy one!

If you have a gmail account, sign in and do your search again. There will be a link next to the result so you can promote ite to the top. The more people do that, the higher this forum will show in results for everyone else too. I also did a search for "seagate 7200.11 falling down" and "seagate 7200.11 problems" went to the bottom of the page and clicked the link so I could actually add this forum as a result. I did this with five (yep five) accounts I use on a daily basis.

I have some experience in search engine optimization. I don't know if adding the link to the results from different accounts will work, I don't believe this is the way to get higher rankings for this thread.

My tip is: create links to this forum from other forums and blogs, but don't just paste the link like this:

http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=128092

Better put some text on it (called anchor text): Seagate 7200.11 problems or Seagate Barracuda 7200.11

This is the way for google to find what this thread is about and rank it higher for these keywords.

P.S. My 7200.11 500GB Drive, China Made, is still working fine. I'm just watching here :)
