They can steal information but they can’t steal knowledge and experience. 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. The drive stopped responding. Whenever the drive hits such unreadable bad sector it could start freezing, scratching, ticking and sometimes loud clicking: All the information below is based solely on our experience and we do not make any claims regarding reliability of the specific model.

Delivery to Italy and Brazil usually takes business days, but occasionally could take much longer in transit. On the label it reads Maxtor 6BP0 model. This PCB circuit board is intended for individuals attempting data recovery on their hard drive.
Maxtor 6B160P0 Data Recovery Information
After some period of time magnetic media the platters are covered with starts to degrade and bad sectors appear. There 6b160o0 one more problem that is typical for all manufactured hard drives: Maxtir drive stopped responding. Please note that this item is for the circuit board onlynot the entire hard drive. 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.
Main part of firmware is stored on the platter in so-called System Service Area. Maxtors also well-known for their line of “musical” hard drives that have very high rate of bearings failures. This leads to further damage to the surface and causes more data loss.
It is often a gamble in this case. When this occurs spindle gets stuck and motor voice coil starts producing nice futuristic cell phone melody or siren: Should this occur the computer would reboot itself, you would normally notice acrid smoke and smell coming b6160p0 your PC and when powered on the drive would not spin up at all.
We can only provide basic information on the compatibility issues. This is just an electronic board for this model Hard Drive.
When to Buy This Item? Please note that this item can fix drives with ONLY circuit board problems. Once power was restored, the drive clicks a few times and does not mount as an accessible drive on my PC.
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 mmaxtor firmware corruption that sometimes could also cause clicking.
There is no return policy for this item. Whenever the drive hits such unreadable bad sector it could start freezing, scratching, ticking and sometimes loud clicking: Maxtors are very vulnerable to overheating, power surges and bad power supply unit combined with power streak is usually enough to burn spindle motor controller chip on the logic board.

Any further attempts to read it would just add up to the problems and make more data unrecoverable. Data recovery in such case involves removing platters from such musical drive in class clean room environment and transplanting them into matching donor.
Vicenzo Pellini Rome, Italia. 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. In our lab we use special imaging tools that are capable of reading raw sector data ignoring sector checksum check. 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.
In all cases there was no sounds from the drive.
Firmware of the drive is not located on the PCB as most people think. Vicenzo Pellini Rome, Italia Maxtors also well-known for their line of “musical” hard drives that have very high rate of bearings failures.
Natasha Pawelska Warsaw, Poland. No response at all from the drive.
I thought enclosure was the problem I took the hard drive out of the enclosure and connected it with another enclosure. If you attempt to boot up from such drive or read any data from it you would get “Disk boot failure.
