Samsung SpinPoint P120 SP2514N problem

Hey guys. i'm having this HDD,Samsung SpinPoint P120 SP2514N, for over a year now. and lately it's been really slow. i tried to scan my pc for viruses, i defragged it, i ran all sorts of scans and it's still slow. it loads slow, and it gets even slower if i try to watch a video on www.vimeo.com or youtube.

any suggestions ?

also, i tried to search and download some drivers, but i didn't because i'm afraid i'll mess my disk even more.


thanks for your time!

Samsung sp251n hard drive. Using as slave. Only 150GB identified in device manager but no pins inserted. Where do I put the pin? Can't find any manuals online


Your hard drive may have two partitions, the first partition configured as 150Gb and the remainding 100Gb partition may not be set up and formatted.
The jumper settings may be printed on the label on the hard drive.
No jumpers are required for a Slave drive.

I have a Samsung SP2514N (250GB/7200rpm/8M/PATA) drive that I am trying to use as a USB drive on my laptop with Vista on it. The device manager shows that there is a drive there, but that is all. It does...


If your using an external drive case, the jumper pins should be set at "single". If that doesn't work you can try moving the jumper till the drive shows up, or use no jumper at all. If it still doesn't work after trying all jumper positions or no jumper then the drive could be bad. Make sure to power off the drive before changing the jumper.

Dead Samsung sp2514n hard disk. I read something about problems with PCB caused by overheating. Any possibility to recover the information of this hard disk?


Hi

Thank you for your query

Unfortunatley if it is dead i.e. there is no power going to it then you will not be able to recover the data as there is no way of reading it

I hope this helps

Is my hard drive broken? Cant get it recognised on other PCs


I'm having a similar problem with the same Akasa integral enclosure, so far I have tried 3 different hard disks and not one of them will work properly and on two different computers.. , all of the hard disks I've tried are Samsung .. but I'm sure that makes no difference. I plan to send back the enclosure to where I bought it from and get a different one from a different manufacturer.

Does not recognize 260 gb


its a fact of life, thought the total storage capacity may be 260, only 250 or so is usable. any less than that i would worry about the drive but if its around 250 or 240 i wouldnt be worried

I have the same HDD but system does not recognize the full size


hi there this is because of  unpartitioned disk space i.e, you wouldnt have partitioned rest of the memory while installing OS you would have only partitioned only 130gb tat is the reason it shows tat much :)


u create a partion then u will be able to use memory for its fullest :)

250GB harddisk only 130GB


try downloading any program that manages disks (partition magic for example ) and see if all the space appearsin that program, if so asign to that space a drive letter and format it .... (with the program that u will use )
