Unlock a wd scorpio black 250gb

A friend of mine gave me a WD Scorpio Black 250GB hard drive about a month ago when I said I was gonna buy a new one. The only problem is that the harddrive is locked. I cant install Windows into it, or do anything else. It's honestly just a thin brick right now. Does anyone know of a way to unlock this thing. Some help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

I would just delete any partitions and format. Hard drives are extremly hard to lock down, especaily after connecting on a differnt machine.

Insert the Window install disc and boot from to do a clean setup, instead of going through Windows.

We cloned an older 58GB drive to a WD2500BEVT 250GB drive (using Acronis True Image 2011). The WD 250GB drive is now reporting as 58GB to BIOS. I've 0-filled it with different utilities. no...


Good day!!..As far us i know that cloning or ghosting should be the same specs of hard disk..Since you want to cloned the 58gb,so you should be use 58gb also and not 250 gb,thats why bios detecting some different utilities..ok thanks..

I have an Acer 3002LCi laptop. I upgraded the RAM to the maximum 2GB. I also installed a WD Scorpio Blue PATA 250GB HDD. I installed Windows 7 from disk and computer shows drives C and D but drive C...


Install a partition manager program like
http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm
open it and you will see the entire hard disk. In there either create another partition in the unallocated space or add it to the D partition.

Why wont my Western Digital WD Passport 250GB Portable Drive 250 GB Hard Drive work?


Several possibilities:

* bad USB port in your computer (try another USB port)
* messed-up copy of Windows (try connecting to a different computer)
* damaged USB cable between computer and the Passport (replace it)
* bad disk-drive inside the enclosure (replace it)
* bad USB-to-disk-drive adapter (buy a new "empty" enclosure)

Check the warranty on it, to see if W.D. will replace it, at minimal cost to you. If the warranty has expired, W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- buy a new Passport through their web-site, and you qualify for a discount on your purchase.

Installed a 250GB WD Scorpio and it shows as a 130GB drive


make sure the laptop will handle a drive bigger than 130 gig. if not make two partitions when you set it up, bios wont see it but usually windows will. also, sometimes ive found that if i delete the partition a few times it eventually reads right. dont know why but have done it that way several times. you can also download a diskmanager program from thier website which makes an overlay if your bios wont support a 250.

WD Scorpio Black 320GB SATA drive


Halarious, I had the same problem yet I used norton ghost. At least you still show 160 gb. Mine went all the way to 60 gb. Here is what I had to do to reclaim the lost. I downloaded something called "Magic Boot Disk" It gave me the whole 320 back yet have not found good cloning software yet. Magic Boot Disc is freeware avaliable at http://hddguru.com/content/en/software/2006.02.10-Magic-Boot-Disk/ Good luck cloning
