Ok ATA is the standard for data transfer, in this case it is IDE. 133 is the max transfer rate. I have removed the hard drive from ours (bought from dell directly and has not been changed) and the hard drive is set as Master (no jumper). Try this if it does not work i would test the hard drive in another system or in an inclosure.

I've a Fujitsu MHV2080At like external disk and from some days PC don't recognize Hard disk and this is "dead" , the led's are ok when i connect USB but the head of hard disk don0t...


  1. Serial ATA:  If you have a 3.0 Gbit/sec SATA drive that is not being detected by your 1.5Gb/sec SATA controller, or it causes your system to lock up when connected to a 1.5 Gbit/sec SATA controller, you may need to jumper your 3.0 Gbit/sec SATA drive to the slower speed of 1.5 Gbit/sec for the system to recognize it properly. For further information on changing the jumper setting to slow down your SATA drive's transfer rate, please see Document ID: 193775

    -48-9s.jpg -- (Click to expand) Jumper settings for Maxtor-brand SATA drives 

    ATA:  It is recommended that all Seagate ATA hard disks supporting the Cable Select jumper option be configured as Cable Select. If your computer system was built prior to October 1998 and does not support UDMA 66 or greater you will be required to use the Master/Slave jumper settings.

    -48-11s.jpg -- (Click to expand) Jumper settings for Maxtor-brand ATA drives 

    When using Cable Select jumper settings on your ATA drive, all devices connected to the UDMA cable must also use the Cable Select setting. The cable decides master/slave device detection when the cable select jumper settings are used. Please consult Document ID: 196299 for further instructions. 

  2. Faulty Hard Drive

    If you have completed the above checks and procedures and the drive is still not properly detected, please attempt to use Seatools for DOS (see the tutorial here) to test the drive.  If SeaTools does not detect the drive after the steps followed above, or an error code that signifies drive failure displays, please proceed to the our Warranty Services page to begin a warranty replacement order.

I have a Seagate ST3200822AS 200 GB Hard Drive(windows XP).I want to use this as external but I don't want it to mix with HD on new computer(windows 7). How do I keep them separate and run one or the other...


Is the Seagate ST3200822AS an External Drive ( like USB connectivity ) or actual Hard Drive ? Even if it is Internal Hard Drive, You can make connect it to Win 7 and still keep it as Seperate Drive.

Connect the Hard Drive to Win 7 PC and Make it Slave ( partition ) by changing the Jumper on the Hard Drive ( jumper is a small pin or a lock that makes a Hard Drive Primary or Slave.

Once you connect the HD to Win 7, you will find new Drives Created in Win 7, this way you will differentiate between the Win 7 Drives and XP Drives

This link will how you the jumper position : Remove the jumper from slot 1 and put it in slot 2

Floydage, some ribbons are different in the orentation of pin#1. try a differnent cable...but you said that you tried that right.? have you tried to make sure you have the latist BIOS. It could be this paticuler drive have a different bios it self...and yes drive's do have chip's and software in them. If nothing ells just load the OS to that drive anyway and than change the drive letters in windows.

I am installing a new WD3200AAJB HD in a Dell Dimension 4550. This is the only HD in the system. There are also 2 CD drives and a floppy drive. I used the jumper settings the drive came with which pins...


Reinstall your old hard drive as master and install the new hard drive as slave.

Here is the link to jumper settings from Westrn Digital;

http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=1540&p_created=#jumper

If you've got your jumper settings wrong and installed your os on the 127 GB section of the 320 GB Hard drive and you change jumper settings and then you have problems you may need to reinstall the old hard drive as master and the new hard drive as slave. Reformat the new hard drive as 320 GB, and as a bootable drive. You can either do a disk copy from old to new or reinstall your os on the 320 GB drive. Please let me know how this goes. You can get to me @ johnkariotisjr91741@yahoo.com

Seagate SATA 80GB Master Drive and Seagate IDE 80GB Salve Drive


Dear,

You have to make IDE drive as slave. For this put the jumper to slave in IDE drive. Possibility of CMOS battery is rare, but you can confirm it by checking your system time in BIOS. If system time is ok then there is no problem in CMOS battery and you need not to replace it.

Thanks,

HARD DRIVE POWER FAILURE


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The HD's power connector and IDE should only be connected when the power is OFF. If you have done this and the PC will not power on, then the HD is defective. Sorry.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

CD-RW not working on same Ide cablew as HD


Hi, please check the power connector to the drive. if it is ok, restart the pc, enter BIOS setup, check whether the drive is detected or not in the drive configuration. if not there, check the jumper settings once again. for the new motherboards with one IDE and SATA interfaces, jumper settings are important. once i had the same problem.
good luck
