IBM / Hitachi Travelstar hard disk drives

IBM / Hitachi laptop hard disk drive failure - Data recovery information

Manufactured in great quantites, the Travelstar was made for a long time by IBM. Hitachi now continue to make the Travelstar.

Common IBM Travelstar models: IC25N020ATCS04, ICN020ATDA04 (both 20Gb), IC25N030ATCS04, IC25N030ATDA04 (both 30Gb), other IC25 series, DJSA series, DARA series etc.

Common Hitachi Travelstar models: IC25N060ATMR04 (60Gb), IC25N080ATMR04 (80Gb), and later models beginning 'HT' eg. HTS548040M9AT00, HTE726060M9AT00 etc.


Symptoms: There are two common types of failure with these drives:
(1) The machine will fail to boot and the drive will not be recognised in the BIOS. A (sometimes) quiet regular "ticking" noise will be heard from the drive
(2) The machine will fail to boot and the drive will not be recognised in the BIOS. No sound will be heard from the drive - not even the sound of platter rotation, the drive will appear to be dead

Cause: There are numerous causes of these problems, though quite often the Travelstar will fail in a similar way

Recovery possibilities: Asia datarecovery can usually perform a full recovery from Travelstars that fail with the above symptoms.

What if I have one of these drives but the symptoms are different?: This is quite possible, they 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.
