It is sad, because I have 30 GB of videos, music and pictures there I would like to recover. I think the datas are not damaged. This complex and precise procedure requires a lot of experience and use of specialized in-house tools to maintain platters in alignment. Another issue typical for Maxtor hard drives is damage to the components on the circuit board PCB.
6v160p0 All the information below is based solely on our experience and we do not make any claims regarding reliability of the specific model. Maxtor hard drives are well-known for their firmware problems.
As soon as you start experiencing such symptoms while reading important files stop the drive immediately and consider sending it to a data recovery lab for diagnostics. If you experience any of the symptoms described above with your Maxtor 6GP0 please feel free to contact us to get upfront quote on data recovery from your failed drive.
If you hear your Maxtor hard drive making some other unusual noises visit our Hard Drive Sounds page for more examples.
I have 2x Maxtor 6GP0and one of them started to making noises – the same as you mention on your website. If you attempt to boot up from such drive or read any data from it you would get “Disk boot failure.

This is usually the maxtot way to effectively retrieve data from these LBAs. System Area occupies the negative cylinders, usually on the inner diameter and contains a number of firmware modules. We have seen a number of websites lately cloning information from our pages.
My son has a 6GP0 Drive which felt down. My laptop nor any other computer recognizes the HD. There is one more problem that is typical for all manufactured hard drives: Whenever the drive hits such unreadable bad sector it could start freezing, scratching, ticking and sometimes loud clicking: Stay away from those companies. The maxttor spins up and the head starts clicking right from the beginning with a regular constant sound: Any further attempts to read it would just add up to the problems and make more data unrecoverable.
In our lab we use special imaging tools that are capable of reading raw sector data ignoring sector checksum check. When this occurs spindle gets stuck and motor 6g1600p coil starts producing nice futuristic cell jaxtor melody or siren: Currently there is no way to fix this type of problem at home. We see mostly failed drives in our lab and therefore we don’t have complete statistics. Salt Lake City, Utah, USA Maxtors also well-known for their line of “musical” hard drives that have very high rate of bearings failures.
Another quite common symptom Maxtor drives have is clicking, knocking or beeping sound. When I start the computer, hard disc starts making noises and it is like that for 30 seconds, then it is quiet, but bios says there is an error on disc drive and Windows recognizes it as unreadable.
No noise comes from the drive, only the blue power light maxror on and is steady. This leads to further damage to the surface and causes more data loss. Data recovery in such case involves removing platters from such musical drive in class clean room 6g1600 and transplanting them into matching donor. These are some real problems experienced by 6GP0 and Maxtor hard drives in general that we see in our lab.
Luckily, it doesn’t usually require opening the HDD in clean room and ordering donor drives, so data recovery in this case shouldn’t be too expensive. It is not an easy “firmware flashing”; it is quite a complicated procedure and requires use of specialized expensive equipment and deep kaxtor of hard drive design and data recovery technology. Should this occur the computer would reboot itself, you would normally notice acrid smoke and smell coming from your PC and when powered on the 6y160p0 would not spin up at all.
After some period of time magnetic media the platters are covered with starts to degrade and bad sectors appear.
