Can't get my brand new Iron Wolf Pro 4TB to detect!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Working on a customer PC and the Iron Wolf Pro 4TB drive he purchased isn't being detected.  I've tried new SATA data and power cables.  I tried every SATA port on the ASUS ROG Strix B450-F gaming board.  Is there a setting in the BIOS that needs to be changed if you're using NAS drives?  I need help!  Thanks in advance!

Not being detected by BIOS? Or not in the device manager in Windows?

There's nothing special about NAS drives in this situation. If you can see it in the BIOS then I'd say it probably just needs to be initialized in Windows. If it does not show up in the BIOS it could very well be DOA.

 

Did you try connecting the drive to a different computer?

Nothing in BIOS?  If you right click This PC and select Manage and show disks does it show there?  If so it needs formatted?

If it shows up in the BIOS, you likely just have to initialize and format the drive in Windows.

 

 

If it's not in the BIOS, this is precisely why I NEVER suggest Seashit drives. They're fucking horrible. There's a reason they're far cheaper than equal capacity WDs...

No reason to generalize, wd pulled enough bullcrap in the past too. You can always have bad luck with a particular drive model or year if they try something new.

 

Back to OP is there something messed up in the bios sata settings?

Awww, all of my Seashit NAS drives have been functioning flawlessly for the 1.5 years they've been spinning 24/7 so far.

They're not cheaper than WD's, and Seagate had firmware issues (702.11 comes to mind) years ago that lead to this reputation.  They're as good or better than WDs right now.

Right, because all the new Seagate drives I've bought coming DOA or dying well before they should've even started to show signs of aging is just "me being unlucky".

My cheap little WD Blue 1TB has been running nearly 24/7 for almost four years now. Zero problems. I've written and read so much fucking data from it. I 100% guarantee that if it was a Seagate it would be long dead by now.

Last time I bought a drive for my mom's PC, a 4TB Seagate was roughly $120 while a 4TB WD was $150. When I bought my 1TB WD it was $50, last time I checked a 1TB Barracuda was about $45.

 

The quality is far cheaper, that's for damn sure. When I go to the ewaste center at my local uni I always find dead Seagate drives and about half the time when I open them up there are scratches on the platters. I know for a fact that the entire campus is roughly 50/50 split Seagate/WD (with some HGST drives thrown in but not many) and I never found any WD in ewaste.

I'm amazed you feel this passionate against a reputable HDD vendor due to personal bad experiences.

I'm amazed that somehow my 11 Seagate drives either being DOA or dying very shortly after purchase means I'm not justified to having a bias against Seashit.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It's fine to have a preference but it doesn't really justify being vulgar about it. LMG build Petabyte Project out of Seagate drives. Up to today we've heard absolutely nothing about catastrophic drive failure, it has >60 disks IIRC and you know LMG would make a video on it if something like that happened.

 

Seagate had some firmware issues in the past as Seafisher mentioned. I've personally never had problems with modern Seagate drives. I have however had multiple WD disks fail on me in various ways.

 

Honestly I'm fine buying from either vendor. It's just that calling them "Seashit" is really unnecessary.

Fair. But those are also high-end drives. Top of the line from Seagate iirc.

 

 

All my experience has been with their Barracudas (a lot of 1TB, two 4TB), and that experience has been god awful.

Fair point, but for 4tb+ is there a real reason you aren't getting NAS drives?  They're not massively more expensive than consumer drives.  I only ever buy NAS drives now, on the way to 30TB of storage from various vendors.
