20 Most Recent Samsung (SP0822N) 80 GB Hard Drive Questions & Answers


Unfortunately when hard drives get to this state they are usually toast and if working at all on their last leg. You may be able to recover some of your data using a professional service otherwise a new hard drive is in order.

Hitachi's Travelstar hard drives are excellent and I recommend the following replacements:

For SATA (Serial ATA interface):

If you have a spare USB cable try that.
If it still doesn't get detected, try it on a different computer.

I would like to ask if you are using a HDD enclosure? If you are, then try using a different one if you or a friend have a spare.

Otherwise it just points to hardware failure.

You may have the hard drive partitioned into two or more partitions.
Delete all the partitions and create a single partition and then format this single partition on the hard drive.

Get the hard drive replaced. It was probably damaged during shipping.

RESPECTED SIR, MY 80 GB SAMSUNG HDD NOT DETECTING AND ITS SHOWING ERROR "BOOTCODE-HANARO 2 ENGINE (REV1) HA100-00

Most likely, hard drive failure.
If a portable, re-seat the drive, then reset the bios defaults, and see if the hard drive is detected.
If a desktop/Tower, re-seat the cable connections to the drive and the motherboard, reset the bios and see if the drive is detected.
If the "Noise" from the drive is a grinding sound, a repeating Click, or a laser sound similiar to a star wars movie then almost guaranteed drive failure.

If the computer cannot boot up then to retrieve your data then remove the hard drive from the computer and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Then plug the adapter into a working computer's USB port. This computer will detect this as an external storage device. You can then click on this device and open the folders and files to copy and backup your data files.
