so once upon a time i had several seagate drives. the last one just failed. it is/was an external harddrive 2tb barracuda which i have since shucked and tested in two separate systems. i was expecting this so i bought a 3tb drive and told my family "hey this is going to die" and moved all my files off of it. they didn't.
when booting the system takes a extra 30~ seconds or so to boot with the drive connected on both systems. however the built in linux disk utility, ddrescue, fdisk, testdisk, and glxinfo can not see the drive. it does heat up and spin and does not make the click of death or any other failure sounds. i have tried multiple motherboard sata ports, sata cables, and power cables, and ofc the original usb connector in several ports. anybody have any ideas sort of buying a donor and transplanting(not worth it imo)?
oh yea and it doesnt show up in the uefi
