Hitachi DK23 laptop hard disk drives

Hitachi DK23 failures and data recovery options

(Brief) Introduction: In the distant past, IBM manufactured the Travelstar laptop drive and Hitachi manufactured the DK23 laptop drive. With the amalgamation of the two storage manufacturing arms of these companies, IBM ceased making hard drives and Hitachi continued with IBM's models (ie. the Travelstar & Deskstar etc were now manufactured by Hitachi), whilst phasing out its own DK23 range.

The Hitachi DK23 family had a number of models such as DK23AA, DK23BA, DK23CA, DK23DA, DK23EA - all with various capacities.

DK23 failure notes and symptoms: The causes of DK23 failure are often the same as the causes of failure in laptop drives made by other manufacturers. The failure symptoms are often as follows

  • At power up, the drive will not be recognized by the computer. Also, a regular clicking or ticking noise will be heard coming from the hard disk, or
  • The drive will be recognized by the overall performance of the PC will be impacted and operation (particularly disk based operations such as file opening, copying etc) will be very slow. The machine may also hang.

Asia Data Recovery Centre are often able to fully recover data from Hitachi DK23 hard disks.

What if I have one of these drives but the symptoms are different?: This is quite possible, Hitachi DK23s are still prone to all the other problems hard disks suffer from ie. mechnical failure, logical failure, bad sectors etc.

What should I do?: Call the Data Clinic and talk your problem through with us on :65-67461909, or fill out the request form .and we'll call you back


Please note that all modern hard disk drives are manufactured to very high standards, fail infrequently and have very similar rates of reliability.
