Is the drive greater than 2TB and you are using a 32-bit operating system? If the drive is greater than 2TB, you need a 64-bit operating system to be able to access it as a single drive. Right click on My Computer. If it doesn't say, it is probably a 32-bit operating system.

Stick it in the freezer for a few hours then try. It may only work for 5-10 minutes at a time so get as much off of it as you can. Also, contact Seagate and check if it's still under warranty. If so, ask them to RMA it.

Windows has a 2 TB MBR limit. So, I expect the TV does as well. What that is?

You need to ready new hard drives by formatting prior to use, and in your case partition as well.

Type diskmgmt.msc in search. There you will see all the drive, but may be already partitioned and or unallocated. A wizard may auto load if truly clean, but you can erase, create, delete, format, and partition just by right clicking.

2TB limit with 4 partitions on a single drive! Make then basic.

A single MBR physical drive is limited to 2TB in Windows. This is a common setup. You will need to break down and partition the drive in order to use it.

I need controller for (English please)
in a computer,. or DVR or what, where does this HDD go?

Medalist 4310 (ST34310A) built in 1999 (20 years old ) why use any drive this old.
why? it's useless.
my wild guess, is this
you have a PC and ustated PC has SATA only ports (modern)
and this old old HDD is PATA drive, with ribbon cable wide.
and you think it can run on modern PC.
well they do sell cards (PCI-e) that fit and work.
4.31GB is the size , holds about 1 top movie .
are you going to boot from this drive, if yes, very complex answer I will skip here. (ask maker of card , if it can)

newegg.com has them all, any thing you can dream of , is there.
if you look.

again, no PC stated, no OS stated.
nor of booting is needed to the PATA relic drive. from 1999.

unfortunately it appears that the internals are shot
if the funny noise is a clicking sound or squeal then the repair is a new hd unit as they are generally not repairable.
