Interface seagate barracuda 7200.7 200GB drive sata to usb 2 forum

I bought a usb to sata cable to interface an internal seagate barracuda 7200.7 200 MB drive to my compaq f700 running Windows 7 Pro. The laptop does not see the drive. I know that sata doesn't require any jumpers on the drive, so I am at a loss as to what to try from this point.

Hello. You are correct that there are no jumpers, however, when you connected the SATA cable to the Internal hard drive, did you notice there were two similar connectors. One was for the SATA the other, longer one is for the POWER for the drive. If your SATA to USB has both connectors make sure they are both installed properly. Be careful you don't break those little plastic tabs because they are not warrantied. If the drive does have power and spins up then it may not be initialized (formatted) and will need to be initialized using START, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management. or just click on start and type diskmgmt.msc in the RUN box.
Hope this helps..

SOURCE: Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 SATA driver problem

If the laptop is also XP, the drive should be recognized without problems. Sometimes this may not happen if the disk is unusually partitioned (could happen if you manually dual-booted it with Linux, for example). Verify the enclosure is working properly and has enough power supplied to, and that it appears in Device Manager. If all this applies, the enclosure must be considered working and the problem might be in the partitioning or disk access.

In XP Pro, do Start > Run Command > DISKMGMT.MSC and press OK. See whether the disk appears (if it doesn't, it's the enclosure, or its drivers - or the disk was dying and is now dead, but that's not very likely), select the NTFS or FAT32 partition - ignore any others - right click and mount the unit as drive, say, G.

If it doesn't work but the partition is found, you may need a more powerful tool such as Paragon Partition Manager.

SOURCE: SECOND HARD DRIVE NOT RECOGNIZED

Change the settings of you IDE drives in your BIOS. Set your secondary boot device to HDD1. Also make sure that your primary HDD is set to master and the secondary HDD is slave. The jumper is found at the back of the hard drive where you connect the power and IDE cables. Try this and post back as to how it went..

Hard drives are only designed to last 3 to 5 years. Most hard drive manufacturers only warranty them for 1 year.
For whatever reason yours has died.

Backing up your data is imperative.

If you need to recover data from this hard drive, there are places online that you can send the drive to and they can recover the data on your hard drive. This can cost you a bundle though. If the data is not necessary, all you can do is buy a new one and reinstall your operating system.

Verify what Drives have been detected by your Operating System by using Windows: Control Panel -> Admistrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management -> Your Hard disk(s) will be displayed with all existing partitions and any assigned drive letters.
Your external (or internal) drive must be recognized as having formatted partitions that have a drive letter assigned to each required partition.

If your hard drive is an IDE type, the data cable that connects it to the motherboard will be a flat (usually gray colored) cable that has three 40 pin female connectors on it. If it is an 18" cable, the 2 connectors that go to IDE devices (hard drive or CD-ROM) will be spaced about 6" apart at one end of the cable and the connector that connects to the motherboard will be at the far end of the cable. Also, the cable will have a red stripe along one side of it. The stripe is an indicator of where pin # 1 is on the cable.
Since the IDE cable connects to two devices, there has to be a way for the motherboard controller to know what is connected to each connector. This is accomplished by small straps called jumpers on the rear of the IDE devices. The jumper choices are Cable Select (CS), Master (MA), and Slave (SL).
If your hard drive is strapped as master you must connect it to the connector at the end of the cable. ( If there is a second device on the cable it must be strapped as slave.)
If your hard drive is strapped as Cable Select it is usually connected to the end of the cable but any device on the 2nd connector must also be strapped as Cable Select.
Verify that the hard drive is strapped properly and then be sure it is connected to the drive with the red stripe side closest to the hard drive 4 pin power connector.
At the motherboard end, be sure the cable is connected with the red stripe side adjacent to pin 1. A "!" is usually marked on the motherboard next to the pin 1 of the IDE socket.
Verify that a 4 pin power connector is plugged into the connector on your hard drive and be sure it is fully inserted. .
If you have a SATA drive, the connections are easier. Verify that one end of a SATA data cable (usually red in color) is connected to your hard drive and the other to the first available SATA connector on your motherboard.. Then verify that a SATA power cable is connected to the power receptacle on your hard drive.
When you are sure your connections are correct, plug in and as you turn on your PC, hold down the delete key to enter BIOS setup. (On some machines it's the F!, F2 or F10 key).
Once in BIOS setup, first scroll through all the menus and make sure that all on-board IDE and SATA devices show that they are set for ENABLED or Auto (If you see DISABLED, change it to ENABLED.)
Then, press the Enter key to select the first display screen, ususally titled "Standard CMOS Features". Your Hard Drive should be listed under IDE or Sata devices. If it is, follow the on-screen instructions to get to the Boot Menu. If this hard drive is the device that you want to load your operating system from, be sure it is listed as one of the boot choices.
If the CMOS does not see your hard drive, then you need to have the drive and your PC tested by a PC technician to determine what the problem is.

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.

Trying to make my seagate barracuda 7200.9 slave


1) Open your computer case
2) On the back of the drive where the connectors are, you have jumpers. These small plastic tabs change the function of your hard drive. All hard drives have a special setup procedure. The information about jumper settings is on the top of the hard drive.
3) Remove plastic tabs and put them according to "Slave" instructions.
4) Connect drive to middle connector of the cord.
5) Connect power supply cord.
6) Secure the drive in place and close computer case.

Also make sure that the main drive is not set as slave.

Where can i purchase a replacement board for my seagate barracuda 7200.12? the usb slot has snapped off the board.


This is an internal hard rive and therefore does not have a USB slot. I assume you are referring to the SATA connector.
The control board is not an item that can be bought separately. You may be able to buy a used drive on ebay.
Try and find someone who can solder the connector back on for you.

An external USB drive consists of tow parts:

a hard drive (usually a standard IDE or SATA drive), and

an enclosure

The enclosure is the box containing the drive. It also includes an interface to convert the data from the IDE or SATA interface on the drive to a USB (2) signal. Some enclosures include and internal power supply. The Freeagent has the power supply externally.

Hope that's what you mean.
