As Title.

It is a Slave Drive from a DELL DeskTop.
5 years or so. Samsung 120GB.

Just put it in a External Box and transfer the data out.

It has nosie even before inside the Tower.

But as now, it is out in the open. Pretty much open.

Question is:
Are the 'Bearing' cooked?

I can't watch TV or YouTube while the drive is on. Unless I have the volume really high.

Thx

could be various things. but if it is that loud that you need to really turn up the tv volume, you may want to look into getting a replacement drive. something is bound to fail soon.

I took it apart.
After I transfer all the files out form it.

It is the Bearing.

When I turn it. It is like turn a Volume knob. With clicks. Not smooth.
