Hi there, use any hard drive cloning tool. like Acronis or Norton Ghost. with hard drive cloning you'll get exact copy of your old hard drive to your new hard drive.
Note : Do not format your old drive until you thoroughly check your newly installed drive is working fine and windows 8 is genuine.

All the best.

Hi my Transcend 320 GB harddisk is not getting detected. Storejet 320Gb


hello

connect the USB external hard disk to usb port by the way disconnect other working harddisks
available on the system, boot the system with bootable cd/floppy go to command prompt and run
chkdsk on this drive

Also download "mbrfix" connect all working harddisks along with the nondetecting harddisk and run mbrfix for the USB defective harddisk

Try using different USB data transfer cable, if power source adapter is used check for rated power output in multimeter for this adapter, if found defective replace it with new/good adapter with same
specifications

Bad luck if harddisk controller has failed you have to go in for new harddisk

GOOD LUCK ooo

Needle? There is no needle.

Your Hard drive just died. It sounds like the bearings just gave out or something else happened to the Platen.

When it makes noises it means something is very very wrong.

I hope you backed up your hard drive. If you didn't you just cost yourself anywhere from $100.00 to $1000.00 for professional data recovery.

Time to buy another hard drive and reinstall your operating system.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

pls rate 4 stars.

keep the laptop, hope it got a working cd-rom/dvd-drive !(if not, take-out /replace the harddisk)
-win xp has to be removed from harddisk,
the hd must be formatted so you got a blank hd to set up your new system

you'll need :
- antoher PC with internet connection and cd/dvd-burner
- a win98 installation cd or bootable savecopy of it,
- a new win-xp install cd plus cd-key
- a program called PC Wizard(download)
and a bit of time...(one night or two:-)

follow instructions:

if you can enter bios (press F1 or F2 or Del)
during booting), youre lucky...

enter bios while booting, in the menu look for boot otions or devices, change order of boot devices, so that cd/dvd-drive is 1st, then save and exit (F10)
insert win98-CD, boot from cd, try to setup win98, you'll be asked to erase/ format all data/installations/partitions
on the harddisk (drive c:,probably), do so, format the drive using the FAT32-file system,
then end installation without fully setting up win 98.
now you should have a blank disk witout any operation system on it.

now put in win xp cd, go through the whole installation process
install and run pc wizard(it'll tell you all hardware devices of the laptop)
get the proper drivers for the notebook for win-xp from the net(google might be helpful)
install them.
happy computing!

if all this did not work, remove the harddisk,(you'll have to unscrew a lot of the laptop)
replace it by a new s-ata ide-drive()and..
erh.. come again then, this is a long process as well

Hardisk problem


With a bad hard drive you have a few options. If you have valuable data on the drive that you want to retrieve, you could make a BartPE disk from a working PC. Their website has step by step instructions on how to do this. this way you can boot to a CD and browse around your files and copy them over to an external hard drive, finger drive, or floppy disk. Just google BartPE. Alternatively you can go buy another drive from bestbuy, install it as a master with the defect as slave. Install windows on the new and once it's all up try to browse the old drive to recover the files.

If there is nothing on the drive you want, toss it, buy a new one and reload windows.

S.M.A.R.T Command failed


It means that the hard disk SMART monitoring system has detected problems serious enough to warn you of the growing possibility of hard disk failure. Sometimes a drive will last quite awhile after this first notification, but there is a good chance of imminent failure, in minutes, hours, days, or weeks. You should immediately look into installing a replacement drive.

You should immediately copy any important data off the drive, perform full backups, and limit use of it.

If you can install drives yourself, a new hard disk (especially Seagates) usually come with software to clone your existing drive to the new drive. Otherwise, a repair shop will be able to do it for you.

I recommend also purchasing a drive enclosure for your old drive. For whatever life it still has, it will be a good backup of your system.
