Transferring to another notebook HDD and finding problems
I'm going from a 20 gig IBM Model IC25N020ATCS04-0 to a 40 gig Samsung model MP0402H
I used Disk Image 7 to use Disk to Disk copy after formatting the 40 gig, when i pop in the 40 gig it asks for a system disk.
My laptop is a Toshiba TE2000 P3 1Gig with 1 gig RAM

Re: Transferring to another notebook HDD and finding...
Did you copy your operation system onto your new hard drive? Must of the time they a hidden file that the manufacture does not want you to find. If you did the you may have to go to your bios and make sure that it's set to boot from your e dr1ive first because that 's where the operating system is on.

don't waste time n seek a professional supervision for a data recovery or data backup.. now try reinstalling os (i prefer winxp pro).. make sure power cables are properly connected and the data cable too..replace with a standby.. replacing the RAM is next option.. glance on the m/b for defective capacitors (esp above 1000mfd) and mosfets..try replacing m/b with alternative standby.. the last, may b ur hdd is faulty.. contact ur system admin/vendor..
You can buy an adaptor that will connect your hard drive to a pc.
Ribbon cable from your secondary drive on pc goes into the adapator. Adaptor also coonects to laptop harddrive.
You also need to change from being a master driveto be a slave drive . see linkbelow.
This trick is the proverbial 100 to 1 long shot but is worth trying with any drive that suddenly stops working - put it in a freezer bag, squeeze out as much air as you can an the put inside another freezer bag and then place in a freezer for an hour. Fair dinkum, this sometimes works but the drive may only work for an short time if quickly re-installed. If it does work, unload critcal data IMMEDIATELY.
Hello there. Your model of notebook hard drive is available on http://www.hitachigst.com/hdd/support/dk/2/2jumpb.html . From here you can see the diagram explaning the different Master, Slave and CSEL selection.
Maksiza, I had a customer who would had their harddrive locked. It was a DELL machine, using a travelstar drive, we called DELL verified they were the owners and they gave the master hard drive password to the hard drive and it worked beautifully. Call Samsung with the machine serial number/tag number/asset number whatever and they should have it if not try fujitsu.
The Fujitsu site looks better.
p.s. Of course we called DELL after 10 hours of searching.
