This was in my old hard drive box, but I have no idea what it is... Googling the numbers on it says it's Seagate, but none of the pictures I've seen look anything like this!

This is the hard drive front:

And the back:

Can you actually read the numbers on the picture? –  Daniel Beck Feb 17 '11 at 15:43
it does look like the old seagate momentus chassis, do you have the PCB? if so, update us with the PN of the PCB. –  Chris - Armor-IT Feb 17 '11 at 15:57
I'll take a peak in our parts storage and see if we have one for reference –  Chris - Armor-IT Feb 17 '11 at 15:58
Think I have it narrowed down, I was wrong about the momentus, it actually looks a lot more like the fujitsu chassis on closer inspection. Can you provide the numbers you do have and the chassis number stamped in the metal? –  Chris - Armor-IT Feb 17 '11 at 16:07
The barcode sticker reads 100155904 the others are SG0788-001 and HF4641IDB6... It's just metal on the other side... Would it help posting a picture of that? –  Tanukitsune Feb 17 '11 at 16:47

That's a Seagate 40 GB IDE hard drive (assuming that barcode number 100155904 is a part number):

From what I see, it is a hard drive (which is probably Seagate) which resides inside a custom case,
the line between the case and the hard drive would indicate this as a hard drive itself is often just solid.

As for identification, either remove the case (if possible) to see the front of the disk or attach the disk to a computer and check the information the Device Manager gives you, throwing that information into Google would be more efficient than trying to figure out stickers on the back of your drive...

It's probably in that case so it can better fit and/or attach to your computer case; although the front of that case looks weird, kind of like a productian failure or perhaps they have wiped the identification?
