HP DV8000t Hard Drive Failed

Viewed the old hard drive using an enclosure. Could not get any info from the C:/ format, but have 5 GB showing on F:/ recovery. Also, created recovery disk when I first received this computer. When I buy the hard drive to replace the bad one, how do I get the operating system and stuff on the new hard drive? Do I just pop the new hard drive in and put the recovery disk in next?

Just replace the old one and put in your restore disc and it should ask if you want to boot from the cd and that will take care of it

The power supply on my hp a1410n failed and I was given an hp s3020n from a friend. Can I move the hard drive from the 1410 to the 3020? I like the smaller design and need to recoup my info from the 1410....


MOST OF THE TIME THE ANSWER IS YES. BUT SOMETIMES YOU MAY NEED TO MODIFY THE WAY THE HARD DRIVE SITS IN THE UNIT. OR YOU CAN GET A EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE ENCLOSURE AND PLUG IT INTO THE USB PORT. A HARD DRIVE ENCLOSURE ARE VERY CHEAP BETWEEN 10 TO 30 DOLLARS. ALSO SOMETIME YOU MAY NEED A GENGER CHANGER FOR THE CABLES FOR EXAMPLE IF THE OLD HARD DRIVE IS IDE AND YOU ARE WANTING TO USE A HARD DRIVE THAT IS BASICLY USB SERIAL, YOU WOULD NEED A GENDER CHANGER. GOOD LUCK.

My imation apollo 25 phdd 320 GB worked fine until I did copy some movies to it and before the files get copied I canceled it. after that when i plug the hard drive again it is not detected. i did try with...


Most likely the drive has failed and has nothing to do with the copying.
There is almost always a way to recover your data, it just depends how much your willing to pay. Depending on the level of data recovery required 1, 2 or 3 you will cost about $150, $500 and $2000 respectively.
There is the possibility that it simply is the controller in the external enclosure that has failed. If this is the case and you don't mind voiding your warranty if you have one you can open the enclosure, pull out the drive and plug it into any desktop that supports sata drives which is any newer than 4 years old. If the computer detects the drive then just buy a new 2.5" enclosure online for $6-20 dollars.

Why i cant format my seagate 500gb potable hard drive, when format it in quick format its show an error that the hard drive not successfully formatted. what should i do? please help me, i need it asap....


The disk-drive inside the enclosure is "dying".
If the warranty still is valid, exercise the warranty to get it replaced, at minimal cost to you.
If the warranty has expired, open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, and take the disk-drive to a computer-store. Buy a new, compatible, drive, and then "transplant" it into the enclosure, to "revive" your external file-storage appliance.

Maxtor manager software shows no drives


Hi,

First and foremost if you're getting power but not seeing the drive you likely have either a drive or enclosure circuitry failure.

If you have no power lights try a new power adapter.

If the drive has failed and you want the data back you will need a Data Recovery Pro to asist you, if the enclosure has failed it will be much simpler.

Step one take the drive enclosure to a PC shop(no offence to Mac techs but they stink at salvage efforts, must be too many years of promising nothing ever fails ;)). When you get there ask them to remove the hard drive from your Maxtor enclosure and pop it into a generic enclosure(looks cheap but the internals are identical in most cases). Then ask them to test the drive to see if it shows up, depending on how you formatted it they may need MacDisk to make it visable.

If it works, buy the enclosure and head home, you're done. Plug it into your Mac and go on with your day, no harm no foul.

If this fails to see the drive, then the Hard Drive itself is likely at fault, in this case reply to me with your Country, State and City and I will refer you to the closest Data Recovery Facuility with Mac capabilities to have your data retrieved,

Of course if the only data on it is still accesible on the computer and it's a dead drive, just buy a new external, head home and rerun the backups manually as in this case it's cheaper to chuck and replace the external than have it recovered.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Samsung sp0802n HDD enclosure. I installed everything. The safe remove program detect the massage storage, but the hard drive icon does not show.


Has the hard drive been formated?
To format the drive, plug the external drive into the USB port - go to the Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Storage - Disk Management. The External drive should be listed as USB drive. On the lower panel, right click on the USB Drive and click on Format, and format it in NTFS.
After formating you will be able to use it as a normal hard drive.

Mac formatted 320 Premium now shows as MS-DOS and all files gone!


Hi, this could be a failure in either the circuit board for the enclosure, the drive or even a failure of the Mac file table of the drive.

If one of the circuit boards has failed it will not show you the drive as accessible, if it's just the partition info on the drive that's damaged it will usually show as 0KB/GB size. If the drive circuitry is simply failed then you can try moving the hard drive out of the western digital enclosure and into a new one. If this works it's just a bad circuit board in the enclosure and the new one should work fine. If the new enclosure fails to work or if you have a damaged logical drive you will likely need the help of a pro to get your data back.

I am a pro myself and have contacts all over the world with similar facilities and will be happy to refer you to own in your region if you can provide me your country/state/city.

Sounds like you haven't formatted the external Hard-Drive.
You need to allocate a file-system to the free space on your hard drive. You can do that in Disk Management and use the format option. You can select from two file system formats: FAT32 and NTFS. I would recommend NTFS because it is a journalling file system (recovers quickly in case of a crash).
