Most often this a sign of bad headsbut before doing any clean room work, it is very important to perform accurate diagnostics and eliminate a chance of possible firmware maztor that sometimes could also cause clicking. It is not an easy “firmware flashing”; it is quite a complicated procedure and requires use of specialized expensive equipment and deep knowledge of hard drive design and data recovery technology. Once the drive stopped spinning, light on exterior casing stays on, but none of the drives facilities are functional.
Bohdan Tupilo Kiev, Ukraine. Drive is 6YM0 by Maxtor. This is usually the only way to effectively retrieve data from these LBAs. There is one more problem that is typical for all manufactured hard drives: Another issue typical for Maxtor hard drives is damage to the components on the circuit board PCB.
This leads to further damage to the surface and causes more data loss. Attached to my laptop, it has no effect on 6y20m0, but it is invisible to the computer. All the information below is based solely on our experience and we do not make any claims regarding reliability of the specific model. If you attempt to boot up from such drive or read any data from it you would get “Disk boot failure.
In our lab we use special imaging tools that are capable of reading raw sector data ignoring sector checksum check. Whenever the drive hits such unreadable bad sector it could start freezing, scratching, ticking and sometimes loud clicking: Main part of firmware is stored on maxyor platter in so-called System Service Area. 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.
The drive spins up and the head starts clicking right from 62y00m0 beginning with a regular constant sound: 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. Firmware of the drive is not located on the PCB as most people think. The only thing that’s happened is a sudden refusal of the PC to even get as far as listing its internal drives; it just sits there.
They can steal information but they can’t steal knowledge and experience. 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 drive would not spin up at all.
Any further attempts to read it would just add up to the problems and make more data unrecoverable.
If one of the modules becomes corrupted the whole hard drive micro-operating system can’t boot up, the drive can’t initialize correctly and stops working. System Area occupies the negative cylinders, usually on the inner diameter and contains a number of firmware modules.
Maxtor hard drives are well-known for their firmware problems. We are not affiliated in any way with hard drive manufacturers. We see mostly failed drives in our lab and therefore we don’t have complete statistics.
Maxtor 6Y200M0 Data Recovery Information
Maxtors also well-known for their line of “musical” hard drives that mzxtor very high rate of bearings failures. Drive letter fails to show up in the “My Computer” window.
Currently there is no way to fix this type of problem at home. Barrie, Ontario, Canada Maxtor hard drives are well-known for their firmware problems.

Peter Gibraltar There is one more problem that is typical for all manufactured hard drives: These are some real problems experienced by 6YM0 and Maxtor hard drives in general that we see in our lab. Spins up 6y200,0 a high-pitched squealing noise, then powers down after 30 seconds or so. After some period of time magnetic media the platters are covered with starts to degrade and bad sectors appear.
