Somewhere on the harddisk, you should be able to see a label indicating jumper settings. Check that the jumbers are set to slave sattings.

I HAVE MY MASTER 160Gb SATA SEAGATE, I HAVE TO ATTACH A NEW 500Gb SATA SEAGATE ,I'VE GONE TO BIOS SET UP. BUT IT DOESN'T DETECT MY NEW DRIVE.CAN YOU SHOW ME THE WAY TO SLAVE A SATA SEAGATE HARD...


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
(note after you have loaded the operating system you must go back and change the first boot device to your hard drive)
The BIOS is AMI. Under ADVANCED SETUP:
The options listed for 1st,2nd ,3rd Boot device include:
IDE-0 means Pri master
IDE-1 means Pri slave
IDE-2 means Sec master
IDE-3 means Sec slave

Master/Slave designation is determined by jumpers on IDE drives. Most drives have adequate markings on them to identify these jumper positions. If not marked clearly, you will need the manufacturer's data to determine that designation.
If you are curious about a working system just power-up in set-up mode (usually by depressing (f1-or-f2) during boot-up sequence, your system-bios will display this information for you.

I have a 250gb seagate sata but when i put my 80gb IDE hdd it only detects in booting and in bios but after that if i open my computer i cant see my 80gb IDE Hdd and even in device manager my hard disk was...


there was wrong in the set up of jumper in your 80gb hdd. Look closely to the 80gb harddrive, in between the ide cable terminal and the power supply connector you will see 8pin terminals paired together and a jumper use to short the paired terminals. It is most likely that the jumper was configure to detect your hdd as master. If the ide cable you use for the 80gb hdd was also use for the dvd/cdrom drive then it will conflict with it if both jumper setting was set to master. See the description of jumper settings in the sticker of the hdd. Position the jumper to slave.

Reboot your system again and see if the 80gb finally appear in your system. When system boot upon detection of hdd, the primary master should be 250gb while your primary/secondary slave will be read your 80gb hard disk.

I have a Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 200 gig The drive spins up but is not detected in bios. I have replaced the cable and the drive, my pc is up again. The Seagate drive acts as though it has a firmware...


Install the Western Digital OS drive as a master with a slave present and the Seagate drive with no jumpers set as a salve. Turn on the computer and immediately press the Delete key or press it when prompted to enter the set up bios. The first screen is the Main BIOS Setup Menu. Do see you Seagate IDE secondary slave since. If none is displayed on the secondary slave highlight none in the secondary slave column and press enter. Press enter to auto detect the drive. If no drive is detected, enter the drive capacity, cylinder, and head manually. Make sure the PIO and UDMA are both set to auto. If the above results in no change you may try loading fail-safe defaults from the exit menu and save and exit. Start windows normally. If you do not see the drive click on start and select run. Type compmgmt.msc in the Open: pull down selection and click OK. Click on disk management and look for the Seagate drive. If you see it right click on the drive icon and make it basic. Make sure you see an assigned drive letter or right click on it and assign it a drive letter. The last task is to download and install Seatools and use the utility to try to repair the drive from the below link.

Download and install Diskwizard and see if it will recognize the drive for a new install.
I sounds like you drive is defective on the interface which will require service.
You may have tried the above but if none of the above has any positive results the drive is defective.

If you don't put jumper in harddrive is detects it as cable select means if you connect your harddrive to middle socket of ide cable and then it detects it as slave but if you connect it at the end of ide cable it detects as slave.But make sure that otehr device is not set as master only 1 device is set as master or slave .
Let me know if you need further assistance.

If the drive works independently of the case then yes you'll be able to recover your info. The drive must be removed from the case and then slaved onto another hard drive either using a USB bridge or connecting as a secondary IDE drive.

How to detect the hardrive?


Hi,

setup the first drive as slave ( sometimes No Jumper ) then the furthest away drive as Master.
If this fails, and you have 2 IDE Slots on the motherboard. ( Primary/Secondary ) Put 1 drive on primary as Slave. And DVD Rom As Master ( same Cable ) Then put second drive On Secondary IDE Slot. ( Set As Master Or Slave )
If none of these solutions Work For you, check to see if Both Channels are activated in the Bios.

Thankyou For Using Fixya.

Seagte purchased Maxtor in 2006. They kept the group that supported these products intact. Check Seagate's support site for specific information and/or contact Seagate's support group. They should be able to help you. The website is: http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support... As a last resort, you can get a free replacement from Seagate via their warranty repair group. They track via serial numbers, so no receipts should be needed.
