I was using seagate ST 31720A (1.7 GB)drive. I had very important data on it.
Problem is:

1. It is now not recognised(Auto detect) by CMOS in Master or Slave mode but recognised correctly only when set with Master with non-ATI slave(only during manual BIOS setup mode and auto detect Hard Disk Drive).

2. But while booting normally it is still showing hard disk failure error.

3. I want to try, replacing the circuit of this HDD with some other HDD.

4. My question is while doing this experiment circuit of which HDD can i experiment with or what considerations i must keep in my mind.

5. pl help in confidance.
