WD2500BEVT-22ZCT0 - 250GB HDD - error/status code 0132 - Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for DOS - dlgdiag_5_22 - WD SCORPION BLUE


Welcome to the Community.

Error 132 means “Command Error: Command Aborted. Please ensure that you are using the version of diagnostic utility corresponding to either newer or older Western Digital drives.”

This error message can happen when no WD hard drives are detected. For a detailed list of WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostics error codes please visit the following link:

On the other hand and based on my experience it would be best to replace this hard drive under warranty for free. Please visit the following link for additional information:

  • I can not find an appropriate HDD diagnostic program. can you help me find this kind of program?

  • there is no guarantee on it.

  • i really need the important data from it.

Buzzing or beeping often indicates stiction (heads stuck to platters) or a seized spindle motor.

Here is a video demonstration by a SalvationData trainer:

Note that the procedure would normally be done in a cleanroom, and the person would be wearing gloves.
