Give this a try....


-> Is there power to the hard drive? -> Is there a pop up stating that new hardware is found, but cannot open the hard drive?
Lets try something: Ok, there are a few steps that I need you to do...
with your Hard drive plugged into the computer, goto:
-> DESKTOP (front page of the computer)
-> right click on MY COMPUTER
-> left click on MAP NETWORK DRIVE
-> left click on the DRIVE Z:
-> now that this is open, look for an open drive (ex:O,P,Q - do not pick A,C or Z drive), so we won't wreck another drive when creating a spot for your Hard drive and remember the open drive letter, and close off this page.

Now that you have the drive letter:
-> Right click on MY COMPUTER
-> left click on MANAGE
-> look for DISK MANAGEMENT and left click on it
-> you should see Volume for SYSTEM and UNKNOWN or REMOVABLE
-> right click on unknown/removable and assign/change to the drive letter from the previous task
-> press ok to save

SOURCE: HDD is cactus, what are replacement alternatives for the OEM?

You can use any 2.5 inch ATA/IDE drive as a replacement. Notebook hdd's are a smaller size than regular desktop hdd's. You can find a good idea online at stores like tigerdirect.com or newegg.com. Hope this helps & please rate this answer fixya. Thanks.

SOURCE: Computer won't detect new HDD as master when booting

You can do this!

1. Connect your 500gig drive as the slave of your smaller boot drive.
2. Go to http://freewareapp.com/western-digital-data-lifeguard-tools_download/ and get the Western Digital Lifeguard tools.
3. Run the executable to install WD tools.
4. Run that application.

You'll notice there is a Drive to Drive Copy utility. This will clone your new 500gig drive from the smaller drive. When the utility finishes copying the drive, shut down. Remove the smaller drive, and set your 500 gig drive as master/single. Reboot, and you should be running off the new drive.

It is possible that your old drive was an IDE drive and your new one is SATA. If so, you may need to enter Setup on the reboot, go to the Boot menu, and set the boot device to the new drive type.

My ST980811AS SEAGATE DRIVE IS PASSWORD PROTECTED, I CAN'T ACCESS DRIVE. HOW DO I UNLOCK THIS?


If its password protected then it was probably encrypted. If its encrypted then youll need the recovery key to get to the information. If you do not have this you will need to reformat the disk and reinstall OS.

there was wrong in the set up of jumper in your 80gb hdd. Look closely to the 80gb harddrive, in between the ide cable terminal and the power supply connector you will see 8pin terminals paired together and a jumper use to short the paired terminals. It is most likely that the jumper was configure to detect your hdd as master. If the ide cable you use for the 80gb hdd was also use for the dvd/cdrom drive then it will conflict with it if both jumper setting was set to master. See the description of jumper settings in the sticker of the hdd. Position the jumper to slave.

Reboot your system again and see if the 80gb finally appear in your system. When system boot upon detection of hdd, the primary master should be 250gb while your primary/secondary slave will be read your 80gb hard disk.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

You did not indicate that the 40 Gb hard drive had Windows installed on it and whether it was the original hard disk for this computer.
There is a possibility the 40Gb hard drive is faulty.
Try installing the 40Gb hard drive as a slave drive with the 80Gb drive as the master drive (don't forget to set the jumper on the 40Gb hard drive as Slave. Check the BIOS to see if it detects the 40Gb hard drive, and when the computer boots up, if it can see the 40Gb hard drive and opens the various folders and files, then the hard drive is OK.

there are few thing you ahve to keep in mind

there are two type of hard disk
1. IDE
2. SATA

As per your hdd capacity it should of IDE type.

Now there are two IDE slots on motherboard. One is Primary and other is Secondary

You can fix two hdd with one IDE Slot that mean you can fix up upto faour IDE hdd at a time

Now again there are Primary master and Primary Slave

and

Secondary Master and Secondary Slave

Now You have to examine what was the location of previous hdd
1 Primary Master
2 Primary Slave
3 Secondary Master
4 Secondary Slave.

Now you have to make a HDD master or Slave.

just in between data cable connector and power cable connector there is a jumper. that specify the master or slave. do reply me if it works well thanks
