They were bought by Maxtor and then Seagate took over Maxtor. You might try the Seagate site to see if the Quantum Diagnostics disk is still available. I have one of these floating around somewhere. It was a downloadable that made a boot disk for you. Anyway, you can always try the basics by removing and reinserting the power and IDE cables..or replace the IDE cable if you have one. If the drive is detected but won't boot, you could attempt a repair installation from the Windows CD. If no go, the drive isn't worth messing with. Hopefully you've backed up what's important because retrieval by third parties who do this will be an arm, leg and kidney. Good luck.
Hi, i having problem with my Fireball 3 ATA/133 HDD 30GB.
It first started when i start pluging a USB pen drive, as per normal, detected new hardware but then stuck/hang there. Restarted my PC but to my horror a message came from the black screen says:file corrupted, need to repair windows.
Try repair windows by booting from cd-rom and using chkdsk command but also stuck there. Restarted the pc and found ide installation error, system halt.
My bios can detect the disk drive but it can't go into windows.
Can my hard disk be save or should i buy a new?
