    My mate has an old Maxtor 60GB that gives him the error code:

    "0200 Failure Fixed Disk 0" press F1 to Resume press F2 to enter setup.

    Is this HDD dead?
    We would like to get his photo's etc off it if we can, he is buying a new PC.

    I have a WD external hard disk drive when I plug it in its turn on and starts spinning, after a few seconds I get a popup from windows saying Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
    and ist shut down.

    You could try on another pc, check cables for any mechanical damage, controller board on the hdd (if u have access) for any visual damage etc.
    Depending on type of disk u have.

    Hello @not_simple - Error code 43 usually indicates a missing or corrupted driver. It sounds like you're using a USB port or hub instead of a SATA connector, so, the next time you connect this drive, open the Device Manager, scroll down to the bottom, and examine USB Controllers. Try uninstalling all the USB devices, reboot, and let Windows re-install them.

    I mention this because for a long time on my Windows 7 laptop, every time I plugged in a USB flash drive, Windows would send the message "installing drivers for this device". Doing what I described above eliminated the message.

    I have following error message shown on my old laptop Seagate HDD by Sentinel :
    "98 errors occurred in the data transmission. This may indicate a problem with the device or data/power cable. It is recommended to check and replace the cable. In this case, replacing the disk will no longer provide a guarantee. This will only happen if the health of the disk drops. If an abrupt system crash occurs and the system is rebooted, the system will fail to access the file/folder. It is recommended to check the connection of the data transmission cable or the power cable. If possible, try to replace the cable with a different one to avoid further damage or serious problem."
    I have checked the connection and replaced the cable and problem still exists. What remedy action I have to undergo and any solution to the problem encountered?
    Thanks for the assistance!

    Without doubts, get a new one (drive).
    Afterwards run test again then you'll see...

    Wear and tear due to aging?

    Remember?
    Everything wears out of service.

    Seeing as this is a portable usb drive, it's possible that the drive is o.k. and the controller in the portable device has failed. You can check this by removing the drive from the portable case and connecting it directly to your pc via the sata/molex cables. Depending on the type of portable enclosure, it may or may not be a simple operation to remove the drive itself

    Thanks, everyone for trying to help me.
    uninstalling all the USB devices did not help,
    I will check if its detected in bios and try to image it. because its get shut down by windows so I hope it will stay on in bios and clone it whit? .
    the device has a mini USB to the controller board not a SATA, so I don't think I will replace the controller board so fest
    thank you all
