you problem is most likely that your bios is out of date. download the latest bios updates for your motherboard and then when you install windows format you HDD with the ntfs system (using the long formatt system not the quick format). Then you should install the bios update. then your mboard shoud no longer have the problem of recognising your large capacity HDD. thanks

SOURCE: My hard drive cannot be

It sounds as though the master slave relationship may be in conflict, or that your drive is not formatted. Note--these are all steps for a pc, but since this is hardware the same process should hold true for apple products.
Please make sure your tower is powered down before removing the cover. In order to corect a master slave problem you must make sure that the jumper pin/s on the back of the drive are configured properly according to your motherboard specifications. generally, if the hdd in question is the second device on an ide cable, then you have to arrange the jumper (connector) so that the drive is seen as a slave device by your motherboard. if that doesn't work, then both devices on the ide cable will probably have to be set to the cable select (cs) position.

SOURCE: trouble seeing my lacie drive possible mounting issue

Not sure if this is the exact same issue, but I couldn't get the drive to mount with different connections, etc. The problem turned out to be the power adapter. If you've got the same kind of adapter on another drive, switch it out and see if your drive shows up. Good luck.

SOURCE: External HD is not detected by laptop Windows XP

A common issue...I'm sure your hard drive is working fine, Windows is just not giving it an unused drive letter.

1. Insert the device (camera or usb drive)
2. Right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage".
3. Click on "Disk Management"
4. Right-click the item in the list that looks like your camera or usb drive, and then click "Change Drive Letter and Paths."
5. Click "Change".
6. Give it a drive letter that is not being used.
7. Click OK.

The device should work instantly after that.

You would probably encounter less problems just replacing your iPod's HD with a new one.

RapidRepair sells them for $110 for an 80g, and their instructions are pretty good.

I did a self test on my hp compaq nc6400 and got a read failure this my hard drive.does it need to be replaced

First thing, back up all of the files that you want to keep onto either an external drive/stick/disc etc as read failures relate to hard disc drive read/write errors within specific clusters or sectors. You may get away with replacing the drive for the moment but your best bet is to run CHKDSK which will require a reboot as its a DOS utility and then run disk defragmenter which can be found in the system tools folder within Windows Vista. This will take quite a long time depending on the size of the drive but it should find any damaged clusters/sectors and quarantine them so that the installed applications don't write any files to these areas. If the however the drive starts clicking and excessively whirring

    External Hard drive wont show files or name

    Even though you may hear the motor turning in your external drive the drive may not be able to read the information on the platter(s) because the arm isn't working. This cannot be fixed; you'll have to buy another external drive.
    There are services that can retrieve the data on the broken drive. Google "data recovery services" and prepare to spend big bucks.

    If you?re getting odd noises coming from the hard drive you may be suffering from read errors. Windows has a utility called chkdsk that can test the hard drive readability and perform repairs in some cases. -Click on Start, then Run. -In the Open field enter ?chkdsk /f /r? and click the OK button. -You will be prompted by and error that chkdsk cannot run but will ask if you want to schedule it to run the next time the system restarts. Enter ?Y? . -Restart your computer, -Chkdsk should run after your system reboots. It will check the integrity of your hard drive and ?repair? any spots on your hard drive it can?t read. Actually what it does is move the data in the spots it can?t read and then marks the spot so that Windows does not use them in the future. The process should take a couple of hours, depending on how much information is stored on it. Let us know what you find and don?t forget to rate this posting.
