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 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.

What happen if i dont put jumper in a hard a hard drive?


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.

Please make sure your HDD are in proper configuration. An IDE device have two cofigurations. Master and slave. Any motherboard will have two IDEs. Primary and Secondary. You can connect two drives to one IDE in Master and slave configuration. This is determined by setting a small pin called jumper setting. You should visit the following website to know more about setting jumper for a Hard disk. http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/installation_assistance/jumper_setting_illustrations/ http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.jsp?locale=en-US&name=ATA_Jumper_Settings&vgnextoid=cbc974850ce0e010VgnVCM100000dd04090aRCRD This way you could solve your problem.

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.
