    Default A technical question about the Hard disk

    Hello,

    i have dismount an old seagate hard drive that come from an A600, and i have cleaned the plates, then i have remounted it but i am not sure that the plates are exactly in the same position and with the original orientation.
    I can have erroneously overturn it.
    Is this a problem? Why the hard disk is no more recognized by the computer!

    Regards
    Stefano

    It is time to say goodby to your hard drive. You need special clean room (not just tidy ) to open and work with hard drives and at home repair is hardly doable...Bet it is full of dust now even if you can not see it ...

    I thought there must be some mistake but it seems not, this is the maddest thing i have heard someone try to do to a hard drive - I've got to ask how did you clean it?

    PS this is Seagate's clean room
