Is that your first disc or your second (slave), if it is an ATA disc did u changed the jumper on the disk?
If it is an sata disc no need to change jumpers.
Sata or ATA it dosent matter, you need to manage the disc manuell.
Rightclick on "my computer"
chose "manage"
a bit down on the next menu you will see "Disc management"
klick on that one
now you will see all your discs, even the disc you cant see in "my copmputer"
You now need to formate and give the disc a name (letter), like F or G or watever letter you want thats free.
After done that you will see your new disc under "My Computer"

Good luck

I have a Samsung 3g 2tb harddisk and it makes strange noises. sometimes it doesnt work and a my pc freezed.


Here is what you need to know about hard drives.......

Some times you don't know if your hard drive is working or not. Your external hard disk might drop on the ground, or your desktop/laptop hard drive might not be booting. Which ever the case maybe, here is how to find out the condition of your hard disk:

Put your ear close to your hard disk, if you hear your hard disk make a crackling noise, be prepared to buy another hard disk because such hard disk is damaged and cannot be fixed. Also note that it is difficult to recover files from such hard drive.

But if you don't hear a crackling sound, use your hand(s) to feel the drive, if it vibrates, it means the hard disk is in good condition.

What damages external hard drive most times is if you don't eject (safely remove) it from your computer, when it drops on the ground or hits any hard object etc

If your external hard disk stops working, firstly, check if the hard disk inside the case is in good condition by checking for crackling sounds and vibration. Once you observe that the hard disk is in good condition, this means the hard drive case is defective/the cause of the problem. Get another drive case and your drive will work again without loosing any file/data on it.

For desktop/laptop hard drive maintenance, make sure you always shut down your computer properly, don't remove the CPU's power cord while the computer is turned on. To be on a safer side, always use UPS (uninterrupted power supply) for your desktop computer.

Also, when using your laptop, makes sure its fixed at a position. Avoid any shake as the hard disk might shift from its normal position in the process.

I hope this is helpful..........

Good luck.

My samsung sata hard disk HM120JI is not working fine. Windows is not coming up. I have replaced the hard disk and now want to copy data from samsung sata disk to the new disk. Could you please tell me how...

You can buy a SATA dongle that plugs in to the hard drive and plugs into the USB port on you computer $20 or buy a external SATA case to put the hard drive in $40 at most computer retailers.

My hard drive is not displayed in my computer and a sound like tik tik tik tik comes from inside the drive

The hard drive is faulty. The tik sound is generally known as the "click of death".
You need to replace the hard drive, it cannot be repaired.
If you need to recover data from this hard drive, there are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Hard disk recognised but not show up in my computer

Check the BIOS configuration to see if it deects the hard drive.
When you boot up the Samsung, does the hard drive spin up, if it does not spin up or makes a clicking sound the the hard drive is faulty.
To get your laptop operating again, replace the hard disk and install Windows on the new hard disk.

External hdd not detected in my computer but is in device manager

You probably still need to partition it, before you can even format it.
Try the disk manager in Windows.

In the start menu, right-click "My Computer" and in the popup menu, select "Manage".
One computer management comes up, select disk management and there you should see the disk. You can then create a partition and format it.
