I can't figure it out with the sound.
On Seagate, best is to connect a terminal cable and see what is the log.

Sounds like it's struggling to initialize and read all of the firmware. Depending on the model, maybe stuck in a pending bad sector reallocation cycle that's failing repeatedly.

As PCLab said, need TTL from the com port to see better what's happening.
