Have you tried different ports on the motherboard? I'd take a guess and say 2 of them are on a secondary SATA controller (probably the black ones). I'd use the red ports.

However I have a feeling your hard drive might be dead. Seagate Knowledge Base At this point, I'm thinking it's best to follow through with that and contact them about data recovery.
I tried 4 or 5 of the 6 ports yes...2 are black, I tried them after and it was originally connected to the red ones, 1 or 2. The black ones are 5 and 6 and are not shown at all in the bios, 1 to 4 says nothing is connected....so I thought it was more the ports than the drive, if 5 and 6 are not even there.
The drive can be dead even if it vibrates?
thanks...I will contact them on Monday I guess....Maxtor lasted 6 yrs and I am on it right now, been beating it to death, and Seagate, 5 months only, sheeesh......
thanks JDROM.
