I bought a 60GB Ultra ATA/100 7200 RPM hard drive from someone on Craigslist. He didn't have the receipt any longer and it had been around a year or so since he bought it, so the warranty is out. It had never been opened, so I figured it would be OK. Well I have tried to install it on 2 different computers and it is not recognized by the BIOS. I have used all of the possible jumper settings and still nothing. I have used different cables and power supplies. Still nothing.
I ran the WD diagnostics as suggested in the help section of this forum. The version 7 linked here gives an error message of 0120 which is listed as unknown with WD. Then I ran the version 10 of the Diag and it read "Physical Media error"
Can anyone offer me any suggestions? Its a complete loss so I can try anything. It never had any information on it , so there is no loss of data. Thank you for any suggestions you can give.
