sentinel Posted April 10, 2006 Share Posted April 10, 2006 OK, so it looks like I killed my new-ish 300GB drive when I spilled diet coke on it the other day. Damn. It's a seagate PATA 7200.8. I spilled a bit on the top and wiped it off very quickly, and left it to dry for a few days...but now it won't spin up when I power it in a USB external. (just quietly humms) Aren't these supposed to be sealed? I would have thought it wouldn't be as bad as regular Coke (what with all of its evil, sticky, conductive, sugary goodness and all...) I don't think I had anything TOO important on there, it was more of a backup/overflow drive itself...but now I'm really sad I killed it, what a waste! Any suggestions? (other than bawling uncontrolably - I've got that one covered) hmmm, Maybe I'll toss it in a box and see what SpinRite can do for me (I don't expect much tho) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
