Barracuda ES.2 Spin but make 2 clicks and urresponsibe, terminal is no

Recommended Posts

I have this drive as you can see on the picture:


And the manufacturer data:



P/N: 9CA158-053


Completely dead for the sata controller, and sata controller takes a lot to give up on reading.

Seeing this forum and threads for the LBA0 and BSY error, I'll try to do such thing thinking I could be lucky.

But the serial terminal is not locked, I can press CTRL+Z any time and put commands and they look like responding.

Trying with another drive (different model and firmware) it shows on the screen RST, (P) SATA, ® SATA etc. etc. while plugging and unplugging, so if I can see it on my ES.2 it means something went wrong.

How it sound when spins up? well, spins normal but in the time the heads make a glitch and has to make a pretty vibration, instead you ear 2 glitches one followed to another and there is no access from the computer, not even showing debug on the serial terminal.

Follow the link to ear the noise:


Sometime I've got this error when one of my SATA controllers try to read again the drive:

And turning off/on makes no difference.

Any tips that I could doing wrong, or any other tip on what can be happening?-.

Best regards in advance.
