Madtor laptop nor any other computer recognizes the HD. Stay away from those companies. Another issue typical for Maxtor hard drives is damage to the components on the circuit board PCB. Most often this a sign of bad headsbut before doing any clean room work, it is very important to perform accurate diagnostics and eliminate a chance of possible firmware corruption that sometimes could also cause clicking.
No noise comes from the drive, only the blue power light comes mzxtor and is steady. When this occurs spindle gets stuck and motor voice coil starts producing nice futuristic cell phone melody or siren: We are not affiliated in any way with hard drive manufacturers.
Luckily, it doesn’t usually require opening the HDD in clean room and ordering donor drives, so data recovery in this case shouldn’t be too expensive. Any further attempts to read it would just add up to the problems and make more data unrecoverable. Maxtors are very vulnerable to overheating, power surges and bad power supply unit combined with power streak is usually enough to burn spindle motor controller chip on the logic board. Firmware of the drive is not located on maxotr PCB as most people think.
If you attempt to boot up from such drive or read any data from it you would get “Disk boot mzxtor.

They can steal information but they can’t steal knowledge and experience. This leads to further damage to the surface and causes more data loss. Data recovery in such case involves removing platters from such musical drive in class clean room environment and transplanting them into matching donor.
If you hear your Maxtor hard drive making some other unusual noises visit our Hard Drive Sounds page for more examples. Main part of firmware is stored on the platter in so-called System Service Area.
It is sad, because I have 30 GB of videos, music and pictures there I would like to recover. Whenever the drive hits such unreadable bad sector it could start freezing, scratching, ticking and sometimes loud clicking: If one of the modules becomes corrupted the whole hard drive micro-operating system can’t boot up, the drive can’t initialize correctly and stops working.
When I start the computer, hard disc starts making noises and it is like that for 30 seconds, then it is quiet, but bios says there is an error on disc drive and Windows recognizes it as unreadable. I have 2x Maxtor 6GP0and one of them started to making noises – the same as you mention on your website.
This complex and precise procedure requires a lot of experience and use of specialized in-house tools to maintain platters in alignment. All the information below is based solely on our experience and we do not make any claims regarding reliability of the specific model.

This is usually the only way to effectively retrieve data from these LBAs. My son has a 6GP0 Drive which felt down. These are some real problems experienced by 6GP0 and Maxtor hard drives in general that we maxtkr in our lab.
The drive spins up and the head starts clicking right from the beginning with a regular constant sound: As 6g106p0 as you start experiencing such symptoms while reading important files stop the drive immediately and consider sending it to a data recovery lab for diagnostics.
Jaxtor is not an easy “firmware flashing”; it is quite a complicated procedure and requires use of specialized expensive equipment and deep knowledge of hard drive design and data recovery technology. We see mostly failed drives in our lab and therefore we don’t have complete statistics.
Another quite common symptom Maxtor drives have is clicking, knocking or beeping sound. In our lab we use special imaging tools that are capable of reading raw sector data ignoring sector checksum check. Currently there is no way to fix this type of problem at home. Maxtors also well-known for their line of “musical” hard drives that have very high rate of bearings failures.
