    Default Hitachi 500 GB HDD Slowing Down..

    The Problem started 3-4 days ago. I just launched GTA V (3dm) while the game was loading, electricity gone.
    After that.. the game was not loading... it halted on Loading screen... tried several times... same...

    The game was in my 500 HITACHI HDD. i am using it as secondary HDD. my primary is a WD 1TB Blue.

    I got Suspicious. and tried to run a movie (preloaded) on that HDD... its like a nightmare... all movies are running too slow like .4x speed.

    I tried to copy the game from Hitachi to WD. but after 1-2 mins, it just slowing down... and remains... 0 speed.

    then... the final nightmare... windows wont load. the START WINDOW LOGO halting for Infinite. So i disconnected the HDD from SATA port. tried new sata cable. all are the same..
    now connected the drive with my pc with a SATA to USB converter..

    SEVARAL GAMES and IMPORTANT FILES are on that disk...

    Any solution Please?

    EDIT : TRIED De-fragmentation.. Same Same

    Do you have HD Tune or other Hard Disk Monitoring Software? If not then install them and check the SMART of your Hard Disk?
    Further more how old is ur HDD and whats its model number?
    Also perform chkdsk /r so that it can relocate any bad sectors you have.
    Finally try to hear the sound the Hard Disk is producing? Do you hear any spinning noise or clicking noise?
