Seagate raw drive


Your data is already gone. The drive is raw. No partition no format.
here is a link to a free data recovery program, this probably wont work but may be worth a try

Your 40GB drive is an IDE ("Integrated Drive Electronics") drive.
The largest IDE drive ever manufactured is 500GB.
However, some motherboards do not support drives larger than 320GB.

Some disk-drives (Seagate/Maxtor) come with a CD-ROM of "tools" that enable you to copy "everything" from your "old" drive to your "new" drive.

Just buy an "80-pin Parallel ATA" cable.
Hopefully, your motherboard has a socket to match the connector on the cable.

When i format my hard drive it says disk error how to fix it?


The "format" has failed to complete, due to input/output errors on the disk-drive. It's time to buy a new disk-drive. If the "old" disk-drive is still under warranty, exercise the warranty to get it replaced.

My computer displays boot disk failure . is it true that if i put the hard drive in the freezer it will work again? i view the video in youtube


That is a myth and I would really recommend you to NOT try it as when it starts to dry out your electrical will get condensation in it then you will have to replace your hard drive and other parts instead of just getting a new HD

Files i unallocated hard disk.


Try and fix the HDD into a external enclosure and connect to a different PC and see whether the files are there. If yes copy them. If there is nothing on the HDD, it looks like it is been formatted. You need to use a a data recovery software to find your important documents.

All the best!

How to install seagate ata IV hardrive


Hi,

The easiest way to upgrade from your old HD to the new 40Gb HD is to clone the old to the new. Do a google for "hard disk clone" freewares. Personally I use Partition Magic and have had very good results.

Hardware wise, you need to install the 40Gb as a slave to the old HD by connecting the same IDE cable as that of the old HD (you may have to remove your CD/DVD temporarily). You also have to temporarily remove the single jumper of the 40Gb to allocate it as a slave to the primary master (old HD). Plug in likewise the 4 wire power connector. On power up go to your CMOS/BIOS setup to verify that your PC autodetect the 40GB (you may have to do a manual detection). Boot your PC and go through the normal boot sequence. Thereafter download your clone software choice, install and run. Follow on screen instructions. You may need to reboot. After completion, use Windows Explorer to verify that everything has been copied. Power down, remove the old HD, relocate IDE cable connector of the old HD to the 40Gb, reconnect your CD/DVD, and place back the jumper of the 40Gb. On popwer up go again to your CMOS/BIOS to verify that the 40Gb & the CD are detected. Save & exit, reboot.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
