I know very little about HDD's so I will start with what I have done/know.

This is an Internal drive that I have been using externally in a hdd dock for many years(no surprise it has failed on me)

 

- the drive internal and externally connected to multiple computers spins up and is recognized in bios and device/computer manager.

- when connected it will appear in my computer after about 10-15 minutes.

- upon trying to access the drive my entire computer will slow nearly to a halt.

- once the drive is disconnected my computer prompts me to format the drive, that is no longer there...

 

I don't particularly want to save the drive, although it would be nice, my wife would just be a little upset with the photo's we would lose.

From what I have read I'm thinking it has corrupt information bogging it down to an inaccessible state; Since I can get it to connect however, I'm hoping that I can save the photos.

 

Thanks for any input,

Joel

You might want to try running the Western Digital diagnostic tool on that hard drive: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=613&sid=3&lang=en

The diagnostic lags fails to run with the hdd installed, runs fine without that drive in.

Looks like the drive is failing. I would salvage whatever data/files you can from it and call it a day. :(
