My ST31000528AS 1TB is making clicking noises, not spinning up and not recognized in BIOS.
The drive is clicking a few times and stops, not recognized in BIOS.
I have another drive with same PN and Firmware, I tried to swap the PCB however the bad drive would act the same way even with the good's drive PCB. What surprised me is that the good driver - after installing the PCB from the bad drive would act exactly the same (some clicks, stop, not in BIOS). After swaping the PCB back - the good drive works fine, the bad drive doesn't.
Any ideas how I can try and get my data out of the bad drive?
