How many physical hard drive you have if you have only one, chances are you have formatted this and devide the hdd into two, thats why you can see only 30gb on it, just for clarification...

Hello im trying to set mysamsung sp8004h harddrive as a slave i dont know the proper pin settings it shows in the bios and device manager what do i do.


If it shows in the BIOS as a "slave", then you have the correct settings. If it does not show, or if the other drive on the same ribbon-cable does NOT show, then you have the wrong setting.

Hi I have SpinPoint SP8004H 80 GB Hard Drive that has stopped spinning up - any thoughts on how to recover the data off please?


you might want to use a professional service to recover the data. Its not really an easy process and I dont suggest opening up the hard drive since the parts inside are very sensitive.

Go into the control panel. Press administrative tools. Select computer management. Under storage select disk management. Look for the hard drive. Make sure there isn't an additional partition on the drive. If there is you can change and delete partitions on this drive as well.

Samsung hard drive model number


if this is a samsung, on the actual HD, you will see the jumper labels like the one below.

Usually it will say:

M = Master
S = Slave
Cs = Cable select

but if it is not visible anymore and you have 4 sets of pins, then the slave may either be the 3rd or the 2nd if you are looking at it from the back.

if you have other questions just let me know.

Seagate 160 gb capacity problem


the harddrive size is in another measurement system and the actual size of the drive is exactly what you are seeing 152.

here you can see how my disks show
894a905.jpg 160GB disk - 152,66GB
1000GB disk - 931.51GB

that is correct.

Hard drive replacement


SATA drives are the latest hard drives available nowadays. You could try going online and checking other sites that could still have an IDE hard available for sale.

Maxtor 500gb internal hard drive


Hi,

To fix/restore to full capacity, you may need to delete the existing partition and re-partition then reformat again.

Most old computers have limitations on the CMOS/BIOS as to how big the capacity of the HD that it can recognize.  Windows however would recognize big HD size and therefore can partition, format and check.

Alternately, a third party disk utility program may be used such as Partition Magic.

Hope this be of some use/help. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
