Trying to get data off an IDE drive from a dead system

I have tried pluggin this IDE 80 Gig Hitachi Deskstar drive into a system running Win/98 as well as Win/XP. I have tried it as a master and a slave. In all cases the most I get is the drive is recognized at the BIOS but is never acknowledged at the OS. When I make it the master on the XP system, it sees it at the post but immediately goes to a 'windows did not start successfully' dialog and loops back to a screen to choose safe mode or start windows normally,,,,,I don't think the drive is hosed,,,I just can't seem to get it recognized at the OS of any box.....

I have a Deskstar 80GB hard drive and I am adding another drive to the computer. How do I set the Deskstar to the Master. I'm not sure what the pin settings should be?


If you have the EIDE cables on your PC, it is easy. Your drives need to have their jumpers in the CBL SEL (cable select) positions (identified on the case on the sticker) and then you simply connect your Deskstar to the Master connector, and your other drive to the Slave connector.

I have delete the logical drive in disk management. my hitachi 40GB IDE hdd is not detected in diskmanagement, and i cannot format that drive. ple. help me


The hard disk is not detected, inaccessible or unreadable because of possible hardware failure, corruption and/ or I/O errors.

To troubleshoot this issue, restart the computer or rescan the disk to try and return the disk to Online

To rescan the disk, open Computer Management, and then click status. Disk Management. On the Action menu, click Rescan Disks.

Just make sure ide cable is fixed properly to the hard drive when scanning.

I would recommend TechRx, inc. for a free exam of the drive. The Hitachi Deskstar drive has some unique featues that allow a data recovery company to do firmware repair easier than other brands of drives. When a drive is not detected, it could be due to NVRAM corruption on the drive. If you find my answer helpful, please leave feedback/rank.

I am assuming that this is the hard drive in the computer. Try a safe boot up to see if you can get to the hard drive. use the F8 key at startup for safe mode.

I want put my Hitachi Deskstar 7K250 80GB Hard Drive from a t2885 emachines on a HP/Compaq K8N8X-LA mother board without losing my data.


You won't loose your data Why wold you think you would? once data is written to a hard drive it remains there until it is removed be a user, it works on the same principlea a floppy, the magnetic coating on the surface of the anodized disks inside of the HD are written to and retain memory of the data, the only things in a computer that won't keep their data are the RAM chips which need electricity running through them to work.

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
