Western Digital laptop hard disk drives

WD Scorpio laptop hard disk drive - Failure symptoms & data recovery information

Introduction: Known by their family name of  "Scorpio", Western Digital's laptop hard disk drives are available with either an IDE or SATA interface, a 2Mb or 8Mb cache, and in capacities varying from 40Gb up to 120Gb. Western Digital are a rather recent entrant into the world of laptop hard drive suppliers. Scorpio drives have only really been available since 2005 and hence they tend to be found in notebook computers manufactured after this date.

If your laptop was manufactured before this date and has a hard disk problem you will probably find the hard drive it contains is either an IBM / Hitachi Travelstar or a Toshiba laptop model.

Laptop hard drives are a recent addition to Western Digital's
hard drive portfolio. These drives will commonly be found
only in laptop computers manufactured after 2005

WD Scorpio Failure Symptoms: So far, the Scorpio drives we've seen come in for recovery at Asia datarecovery have failed with the common laptop hard drive failure symptoms .

  • The drive will no longer be recognised when the laptop is powered on. Additionally a regular ticking noise may be heard from the hard drive, or
  • The drive will be recognised but the computer will run slowly and access times to files and folders will be impaired. Sometimes the machine will hang and a ticking noise be heard from the hard drive.

Cause & Recovery Possibilities: As with all laptop hard disks, there are numerous causes of these problems, but the symptoms are often the same. Asia datarecovery are often able to perform a full recovery of data from Western Digital Scorpio hard disk drives.

What if I have one of these drives but the symptoms are different?: This is quite possible, Scorpio's 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 Asia Data Recovery Centre and talk your problem through with us on 0065-67461909, 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.
