Quick update.

Replaced the SATA cable with a new one, but the problem still persists. Starting to think the drive may be faulty. How likely is it that a drive will just throw its hand in like that? i haven't really abused it or anything.

Depends on how old the drive is. Should live for a fairly long time under normal circumstances though.

I'm assuming you're running the latest Sata and chipset drivers?

What motherboard are you using?

Have you tried a different SATA port?
What is your controller set to in the bios AHCI or IDE?
Did you manage to get a S.M.A.R.T read out?

I find hard drive problems to be strictly luck of the draw. I managed to fry 6 HDDs in 6 months between work and home one year, ranging from less than 3 months old to several years old. I wasn't abusing mine either, very light usage. Hard to say what causes things like that.

Apologies for late reply,

I will switch round the SATA port and give that a shot, something i didnt even consider. (note to self, be more methodical.)

Controller set to AHCI in BIOS, and S.M.A.R.T is also enabled within the BIOS, not sure if thats what you mean by read out, im still finding my way with this stuff.

If the drive HAS taken a crap, can i just connect a new HDD while the old one is still alive, move everything over whole sale and then replace the drive with the fresh one as if nothing was different?

Sorry if thats a really obvious question.

If it's just your storage drive (D:\) sure thing swapping in a new one is no problem so long as it's formatted, only other thing you'll need to do is reinstall any programs that were already on it before other wise windows is going to look for programs that were there and aren't anymore.

If the drive doesn't disappear while copying files, you'll get that done. As long as it isn't a boot drive of course.

Yeah I had the "nerd touch of death" for a while there. I finally started suspecting flaky power in my house, so I bought a UPS. Haven't had a dead drive since.
