Yes it will work in a PC. All 3.5" sata drives are standardized. Connect it via a SATA cable and you will need to format the drive to work with windows. To do this:

1) Right-click on my computer
2) Click on "Manage"
3) Click yes to allow if any dialogue's pop up.
4) When the menu pops up look at the left side menu and click on "Disk Management"
5) Look for your drive in the list when it populates. It should show a 500GB drive and it may show an error on it since it is not formatted for windows.
6) Be sure this is the correct drive you want to use! Formatting it will erase EVERYTHING on the drive.
7) Right click on the drive in the bottom list and select the Format option.
8) Give it whatever name you want, make sure the format is set to NTFS, check the box for quick format.
9) Let it format, this should only take a few minutes. After that it will show up as a blank drive in My Computer!

Note that the disk-drive is 5900 RPM -- a little faster than the "usual" 5400 RPM, but not as fast as a brand-new 7200 RPM disk-drive.

Seagate pipeline hdd 500 gb. can I remove it from a lorex dvr, and put it in my pc?


Any drive will work - but you have to make sure that its physical configuration matches your pc and that you reformat the drive since the format used for dvr use is not compatible .

Use Disk Wizard. No 3rd party tools are required at all.

Scenario: 1 Pipeline SATA. 1 Barracuda SATA. 1 IDE drive with current OS. Is this correct?
Just treat the Pipeline from the DVR as an extra drive by formatting it, and moving the files over. You then can remove the IDE and Pipeline for peace of mind, but the OS advance setup should give the option of all three drives for install destination.


Leaving the IDE drive should not affect your resources.

I had four broken DVRs of same type, I want to use their HDD in raid strip in PC, but they are DVR HDDs (Seagate Pipeline HD.2, ST3250312CS) and they are not initiable in PC. Is there any way to use them? ...


The SATA RAID interface needs to be compatible with SATA revision V2.0. Check the drives with the Seagate diagnostic tool (download it from Seagate) for correct operation. This will also check / test the SATA interface. Connect the drives directly to a PC with SATA interface to do this. If proven OK then use the RAID board.

Possibly there's a way to downgrade to SATA-1 using a Seagate tool.

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA and
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

500 Gb sata hdd not detected on k8mm-v motherboard


Find in your BIOS if you have an option that says configure SATA as IDE, AHCI and raid. Set it at IDE and try again to install the OS. After intaling do not switch back because it will not work.

My motherboard P5KPL-CM sometimes does not detect my seagate Barracuda SATA HDD (500 GB) at all. plz advise.


In this situation the you need to check the IDE or SATA connector. I have already experience this problem before I tried to replace the IDE cable and I will fix it. Replace the IDE or SATA cable with a new one and make your HDD first boot to your BIOS.

This is normal. SATA II drives spin much faster and run much hotter then IDE drives. You can attach a hard drive cooler to the hard drive if you wish and if there is enough room in your case.
