Question about Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP1604N 160 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Harddrive will not boot

One day the harddrive would not boot, no error messages, had my IT guy at work look at it, said that it went to 32 GB from 160 GB, asked if anyone played with jumpers, I replied NO. Had the brother in law have a look, he could find the XP OS. Anyone else have this problem, can i retrieve any info from the drive, my daughter had pictures of her first childs birth on it, can anyone help. Thank You

How to format only C: Drive( in NTFS) in 160 GB Hard disk


It sounds like you are booting into DOS. Dos is an old system which does not recognize NTFS partitions, only FAT/FAT32.
What you need to do is use Hiren's Boot CD (download off google).
Use it to boot and use the NTFS4Dos utility first. Then start Dos:
Or once you boot into Dos mode with the CD, type:

A:\>NTFS4DOS
.............it will list harddrive partition letters.........
A:\>C:

The above may look different as A:\> can be any drive the cd assigns. C: is also an example as you will see your drive letter in the list of harddrive partitions detected.

Harddrives are a mechanical device. They have a 'Life Cycle'.
After so many hours of usage, the life cycle come to an end. Kind of like for a human being. It could be your harddrive is at it's end.

You could try installing this harddrive into an inexpensive external enclosure.(Uses a USB cable) Plug it into a working computer. Go to My Computer, find which drive letter it is, (Example: (D:) or (E:) or (F:), double-click on that drive letter, and see if you can access this harddrive.
Your harddrive is an IDE harddrive. IDE is also referred to as EIDE, ATA, and PATA.
It is a 3.5" harddrive.

Old hard drive


just plug the old hard drive into your new system insuring that the setting of the jumpers on the old harddrive are set to slave. then when you boot up your system your operating sustem will detect the old harddrive and then you can access if in the my computer folder. In order to keep the the operating system working in the old harddrive do not delete any system files just delete the data you copied in to the harddrive, to be safe do not delete anything in the windows folder in the old harddrive
