Seagate Hard Drive dead?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I bought a Seagate 1 TB Hard Drive about a month ago, I use it as a secondary drive for my FRAPS recordings. Just yesterday my computer started having issues first relating to files on that drive being very slow, for example I played a video from that drive and it lagged/skipped, I tried copying a 600MB file to my main HD and it says it would take a couple hours. Now my computer can't get past some of the boot screens when that drive is connected. After disconnecting the drive everything is fine. So is my hard drive dead? And is that what is causing problems with my boot all of a sudden? I want to send it back to Seagate, but they say i have to run their test software to determine if its actually a bad hard drive and use that code in my submission.

Yea, looks like it is having issues, download and burn Seatools to a disc and boot it and see what it finds. http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/support/seatools/SeaToolsDOS223ALL.ISO
