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.

My windows 7 Home will not read my new Thermaltake BlacX Duet. Downloaded new driver and still no luck. Anyone have some suggestions? Im not a programmer, but can follow instructions. Thermaltake web


try with knowingly functionating hdd, also hdd sometimes will not display in my computer due to partition error, but will display in control panel- administrative tools - computer management - disk management , new hdd-s might do the same because they only have unallocated space,and need formating. I don't know if the device itself should display itself or not, check in device manager but maybe its normal that its invisible and shows only hdd-s. If a hard disk has malfunctioned to an extent, you will not see it anywhere in windows
hope this helps

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

If you have one HDD set it to master with your jumper settings. Try again. If No go than change the cable connector. If SATA HDD than change the connector on the MOBO try another connector. Restart. If still no go than write back

Troubling in sata connection


  • I suppose there is a jumper(beside the power pin) on your new HDD,
  • if its true the your HDD supports 3GB/s mode but your motherboard does not .
  • So place the jumper on the HDD on 1.5GB/s combination.
then
  • Disconnect the 80 GB,
  • Connect the new HDD,
  • Boot from any bootable xp or vista or any disk tool like erd commander and try to format the new HDD.
  • Then connect the new HDD and boot from it.
Tell me what happened.
