Hdd problem not detect

Try to get Acronis Disk Director. This program is able to read and format your harddisk, even when Windows is not able to see it (*). With the mentioned software, you can format the disk and make it readable for Windows.

(*) Maybe it's not formatted, or contains a file-format which Windows does not recognise, like what happened, when this disk was previously formatted for UNIX/Linux-systems. With Acronis you can overcome this problem.

Try checking your connections. Make sure the usb cable is firmly in the hard drive as well as the pc. Unplug the hard drive, restart the computer and plug it back in. If that does not work I would suggest trying some sort of file recovery/back up software and then calling in the warranty.

I am having a maxtor One touch 111 external drive which I need to connect to a fedora linux. Do we have a linux driver which can detect the USB drive

If you are just using it as an external drive, Fedora should see the drive automatically, no driver should be necessary. If it can not, there is probably a different issue.

You may need to format the drive if order to mount it.

If it is already formatted as NTFS, it will be read-only to Linux. If formatted at FAT32, Linux should be able to read-write it as well as Windows.

fdisk -l: to get info on all disks (formatted or not) connected to the box. You should be able to figure out which disk is which.

If you will be using this disk exclusively with Linux, you will probably want to consider formatting it with a native Linux file-system.

Harddisk not detected in disk management but recognized in bios

Does it show in the devices? If it is, check and see if it is disabled. If not, check the jumper settings on both drives, and check your bios settings.

How can i installed driver of sata hdd for linux red hat

if you are installing red hat 8 and higher there is no need to install extra driver because linux is the only operating system which will install everything including drivers, office suite,programming tools etc .... as far as my suggestion dnt install old versions of linux instead install new version ... there are many linux available
ex: fedora core 4,5,6 ,knoppix live cd linux ( which boots linux from cd no need install it) ,ubuntu,red hat,mandrake,suse ....
you can download it from net 4 free as linux is open source 4 all ...
be careful while installing linux especially during partitioning..... if u make a mistake you will lose all datas
