Hi everyone.


I got a load of Apple stuff ranging from 1985-1996 yesterday and included was an external LaCie hard drive.


I plugged her in and noticed a really, really odd sound. I've never heard of HDD make a sound like this before, and couldn't find a similar sound on all of the "hard drive failure sounds" websites.


The hard drive itself is an IBM DORS-32160 from 1996. Below is a link to a youtube video with the hard drive producing the odd sound. I believe it repeats 3 times before I stop recording.



You will need to turn your speakers up.


I assume its means the HDD is toast, but does anyone have any idea what this means? Like, what the problem is or if you have heard it before?


Thanks a bunch.
