I use gparted tool to find it. Once you boot from the CD (with the .iso of gparted on it), you can access the tool to find the cylinder by right-clicking on the desk and select ???? sorry, I'm not sure about the name of the tool. So go to gparted.com and download the program. If you need more help, let me know.

Wont recognize the primary master IDE. Do I need to replace the MB or is this a known problem. Have tried diff drives and cables...


Don't wish to down a motherboard manufacturer, as it isn't good business, but I would use a SOYO mobo for a frisbee.

You've indicated that the primary master IDE isn't recognized?
Is this by looking in BIOS Setup?

Have you tried to set the harddrive's parameters manually in BIOS Setup?
Set the Cylinders, Heads, and Sectors?

The Cyl, Heads, and Sec information for each harddrive can be found by looking at the label on the top of the harddrive.
If it isn't listed go to the harddrive manufacturer's website, and use the model number off of the harddrive, to find said information.

Example using Seagate harddrive,
Barracuda, Model number ST3500830A
500GB.

A) 16,383 Cylinders
B) 6 Heads
C) 63 Sectors

Also depends on what flat ribbon IDE cable you're using.
With a 40-wire flat ribbon IDE cable the primary harddrive plugs into the Middle of the cable.
With an 80-wire flat ribbon IDE cable, the primary harddrive plugs into the End connector of the cable.
(Both styles of IDE cables have 40-pins. Actually 39 as 1 is not used)

http://www.mikeshardware.com/howtos/howto_connect_ide_hd.html

(Look under the heading - Connecting Your Hard Drives)

Plus you may want to check the continuity of each flat ribbon IDE cable's wires.
Use a multimeter set to Ohms.
Due to the age of these cables they can go bad.

How do you have the jumper set .. Slave, Master or Cable select?

moz-screenshot.jpgIs there another device on that ide cable (i.e. cdrom, dvdrom etc)

Be sure that it is not conflicting.

Match the jumper settings to your 20GB that you are replacing.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST380011A "a disk read error occured"


Might be a damaged sector. Otherwise i would think you (by accident) created a seperate partition on your C:\ (? main) HD. The cause of damage can be many things, certain types of certain brands or more sensitive in how fast these sectors get damaged. But you can at least try to repair them with the disk repair utility in Win XP, called ChkDsk ("check disk"). However, what may end up happening is that ChkDsk will mark the sector as bad (instead of attempting to recover any information) and your hard drive will no longer 'hover' over top of that area of the drive, making it impossible to recover any data on the sector. Maybe try to google for (free) BETTER third party software for this first. So what caused it is hard to discover after it happened, but you can try to repair it.

Bad sectors removal and formating Seagate 80 GB


I suggest puting your hdd on another computer, full format it again, and scan it for bad sectors.Also, searching for a program that repairs bad HDD sectors, the windows default erros scan could not be very helpful if there are many bad sectors.

Total size is not 80 GB IDE Hard Drive


Hi,

Two possible solutions but both calls for another software/utility.
1. Use FDISK but you should be booting and running in DOS mode;
2. the other is Partition Magic which runs under Windows environment.

The idea is to delete the existing partition (that shows only 31.50Gb) and thereafter re-partition to the full capacity of the drive. of course doing so would erase the contents. Further, a format after the re-partition is required.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Quantium 10.2 gb fireball CX10A011 specs. ie sectors, mode, etc.


The specifications to enter the information manually, are on top of the harddrive. Kind of hard to discern, huh? That's because harddrive sizes from 6.4GB through 20.4GB are listed on top.
C/H/S = Cylinders/Heads/Sectors
The Quantum Fireball CX10A011 hardrive is a 10.2GB harddrive.
You will see -> C/H/S....10.2 - 16383/16/63 on top.

That is ,
16,383 Cylinders
16 Heads
63 Sectors

As for the 40GB model, it should be similar. If not, come back and post.
