A mbr is nothing more than data written to the beginning of a hdd
By rights a check disk scan will fix it however read on
Start with the manufacturers check disk utility to determine if physical sectors are damaged on the hdd not doing so will mean any revival attempts will be a waste of time if the platters themselves are stuffed
You would be better off placing the hdd in a computer as one poster has stated
who makes the hard drive?
Yes, SeaTools should fix this.
Do both tests short & long
The long test did you tick repair & did test fail if so check on manufacturers website if your hdd is under warranty & start an RMA,Model & serial number will be required
if you re-open seatools & locate help in tool bar it will show the log its the txt file with letters & numbers
No it's not an electrical issue it's hardware a bad lba is the discs themselves only one solution hdd needs replacing
You could open it up & place it in a clear case & have it on show,take the magnets out tho as they're freak'n strong & real handy,look at this way you put one on a fridge you'll need a prybar to get it off,no! i'm not exagerating
must be a rare earth magnet.
