Question about Hitachi Travelstar 80GN 60 GB Hard Drive
The drive doesn't show slave setting. This drive has a boot virus and can't repair with windows XP disk. When I scan drive the scan gets to 39% and then ends (Bad Sectors). Tried to put this HD in enclosure and my desktop doesn't see drive that is connected thru the USB port.
How do you know that the HDD has a boot-sector virus? Can you tell us which specific boot-sector virus you're trying to remove? This is the direct link to the .PDF file with the jumper setting information you need: http://www.hitachigst.com/tech/techlib.nsf/techdocs/78090BF330EAFDA687256C4E0077DA0A/$file/T80gn_ig.pdf As you'll see, you need to move the jumper to the A2 position in order to set the drive as Slave, BUT, keep in mind that in order to use the drive through a USB enclosure, you will probably have to set the drive as Master, not Slave. Changing the jumper to the Slave position will DISABLE the onboard IDE controller, which could prevent the system from finding the drive through the USB port (which is what you've already described)... Which program are you scanning the drive with? Are you using an anti-virus program, ScanDisk, or something else? Please provide more details; removing a boot-sector virus can be difficult, so the more information you provide, the better the chance that we can help you resolve this...

If it's USB you shouldn't have to mess with the jumper settings but here is a site that appears to have them for TravelStar: http://www.ontrack.com/jumperviewer/ If the drive is not showing up in My Computer make sure there is a drive letter available for it to use. You can right click on the My Computer icon, select Manage and then go to Disk Management and see if the drive shows up there and then assign it to a different letter.
