Question about Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP0802N 80 GB Hard Drive

Samsung SP0802N 80GB Slave

I added this HDD as a slave. My BIOS (Intel) and Win XP picks it up, but shows the size as 31.4GB after reformatting NTFS. Where did the rest go?

    I tried this, it still only allows 32GB. My jumper is set to slave, if I have it on anything else, it is not picked up by my BIOS.

Go into the control panel. Press administrative tools. Select computer management. Under storage select disk management. Look for the hard drive. Make sure there isn't an additional partition on the drive. If there is you can change and delete partitions on this drive as well.

    Check the internet for the website for your particular computer or motherboard and see if there is a bios upgrade available for it to pick up bigger hard drive sizes.



    Another option you can try is to go into the bios settings and manually insert the hard drive settings for number of heads, platters, lba, etc. Those settings are written onto the label of your hard drive.

Check the Jumper pins

There should be no jumpers for 80 gb slave

Adding a jumper on this drive reduces the capacity to 32 gb

Since you mentioned slave, I'm going to assume this is a IDE hard drive (with the 2" wide ribbon cable).
Check the sticker on the back of the hard drive for the correct position to place the jumper on. Often hard drives require different settings depending on whether they're the master, slave, or the only drive on that IDE cable.
Note: generally it's a bad idea to mix optical (CD/DVD) devices and hard drives on the same IDE cable.

Hard disk is damage what can i do...?


Give it to the authorised service station and claim the warranty. They will backup your data and possibly replace with another HDD. There are many expert technicians who can retrieve data from a HDD even if its damaged.

I have Intel 810e PIII 1 GHz 512 Mb Ram 20 GB HDD. OS Win ME I want to add secondary HDD. Which one should I preferr 80GB / 120GB / 160GB. and will install new OS say Win XP or linux in Secondary Hdd....


160gb - but ensure the bios is up to date and check the motherboard manual as that will or should explain about maximum capacity of hard drives but am sure it should be fine.

If it is not and does not detect all of it you can partition the partitions into smaller amounts ie 80 gb partitions each ?

Hard drives show up in BIOS but not in My computer? WHATS UP?


You should not use line select on any of the drives at this point. Set the jumpers on the components to one master and one slave on each channel. Personally I would put one HD and one optical drive on each channel and make the optical drives the slaves but that's not required. Win98 uses a different file system than XP (FAT32 compared to the newer NTFS) but you can still use the drive. I would copy all the files you want to save and then reformat it using NTFS for better performance.

Boot into XP, both HD should show up when the jumpers are set correctly. If they still do not show up go into your BIOS and double check that all master/slave designations match what you have set the jumpers to.

SP0812N HDD 80Gb


Hi,
this mainly depends on The Operating system, if your using Windows 2000 or above it should,nt be an issue.
sometimes there are limitations on 2 hard-drives sharing the same IDE channel on the mainboard.
Try putting the second hard-drive on the secondary motherboard slot, with it,s own individual cable.
If non of the above works, it,s possibly not formatting correctly.
you,ll need a program that zeros then formats the drive.
Hope this helps.

MOTHERBOARD PROBLEM


Check the jumpers of harddrives it should be MASTER and the two CD drive are set to SLAVE... Then cable 1 contains one master (winxp loader) and one slave (combo). The second cable contains one master (new 80gb) and one slave (CD-ROM).

Boot in safe mode to repair itself... Press F5 for that before it reads the OS

Good luck... Fixya
