Hello. I use Intel ZX-865 GV Motherboad with three hard disks- Maxtor 20 GB Hard Disk,Samsung 80 GB Hard Disk & Hitachi 500GB Hard Disk. Problem is,the motherboard often can not detect one hard...


As the error says, the 3rd slave hard disk (which one depends on how you have connected them - most likely the Samsung) isn't responding in a timely manner to the commands coming from the southbridge. Because of the miscommunication, the master disk on the same cable (the Hitachi) can also fail the recognition, even if there is nothing wrong with it.
This is a hardware defect: that disk is dying and there is nothing you can do to fix it. Just take out all your information out of it and remove it from the pc permanently

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.

How old is that hard disk?
Have you been receiving messages showing "SMART error" or something like that?

If yes, hard disk can be damaged.

Hello,

all you have to do is to simply set the jumper at the back of he hard disk, beside where the IDE cable and power enter into the hard disk.

Just keep setting till you put at the right position where the system recognizes it.

There is nothing wrong with your PC and hard drive, just set the jumper of the Hard disk and that should be all.

Take care.

you can take backup of D drive om other computer .
Conect your harddrive to that other computers CPU but make sure that your hardddisk is slave which has issue you can set slave your hdd with jumper read on harddisk.
then connect it to cpu with SATA or IDE .
Then winxp find that all partition then take backup.

Boot your computer with winxp disk then follow the procedurer then you see on screen
your old winxp for repair then when it ask for "r"
Presss "R"
thats it.
Thwen it repair your winxp then you can use easily.

Can you boot the computer from a boot floppy?

Primary Master/Slave Hard Disk Error


Honestly, this is the best software I've used for file recovery:

It's a bit pricey, but if your data is important, it's worth every penny.

Hope this helps!
