My samsung sata hard disk HM120JI is not working fine. Windows is not coming up. I have replaced the hard disk and now want to copy data from samsung sata disk to the new disk. Could you please tell me how...


You can buy a SATA dongle that plugs in to the hard drive and plugs into the USB port on you computer $20 or buy a external SATA case to put the hard drive in $40 at most computer retailers.

I have a flashing light on my Fantom hard drive light. Did it crash?


The disk-drive has malfunctioned.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service".
For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

If it still has a valid WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If the warranty has expired, then open the case, remove the disk-drive, buy a new "compatible" disk-drive, connect it, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

Hi I have a Fujitsu Mobile MHV2120BH 120 GB SATA Hard Drive, I want to install XP home on it. But Ive been reading that I need Sata/raid drivers for the computer to see the drive. I have a HP Pavilion...


The SATA drivers will be on the XP disk. Just put the XP disk in your CD drive, partition the new disk and load the OS.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

OK, 2 things to check. First and foremost, when you plug it into the PC does it make that nifty noise to let you know it sees a new piece of hardware?

Second, if it does, you probably need to initialize the disk. Hit the windows button, right click on computer, and select manage. Under the storage category highlight Disk management. If you see the drive there, you can right click and select initialize, or format. From there the system should see the drive.

Can't install external hard drive. Do not have disc or manual. When I connect drive to USB port, drive lights up and makes sounds, but does not show new hardware.


Most likely the drive hasn't been initialized. Go to start, right click my computer, then manage. Select disk management on the right column. A window should immediately pop up saying disk initialize wizard. Press next, and it will guide you through on how to initialize the disk. Make sure you format it as well, so that the computer will recognize it as a drive.

WD 500 GB resized by Norton Ghost Restore to 120 GB and can not get it to original size.


You should partition your new drive first to say 160Gb (you lose a bit after formatting) for 1st partition and the remaining capacity for the 2nd partition. Because your Ghost image is 120Gb it can only restore to a partition of 120Gb, that is why it shows 120Gb on a 500Gb on a single partition.
You may be able to fix this problem without starting again by using Disk Manager (from Control Panel - Admoinistrative Tools) to create a 2nd partition on the hard drive and format this partition.
