One trick I have learned as a technician, when the problem is data-read errors off the plattersthemselves, is to freeze the hard drive overnight. It makes the data more 'readable,' but for a

one-shot deal. If this data is critical, and you have a replacement hard drive (which, if it's a drive failure, you probably do), then you can hook up your frozen hard drive and immediately fetch the data off before it warms up.

or if you have deal with dead head
you must get same type and model hdd
then replace the platter with your original hdd platter
you need kindda special screwdriver and the patter must not touched and dusty

then connect the replaced platter hdd to your computer

please rate!

Hdd not decetd


Hi,
You haven't specified if this is an external or internal HDD.
If it's possible connect it to another computer to check if it's detected.
If it's not detected on a different computer chances are good that the HDD controller circuit has blown. Unless you have valuable data on the HDD it will be cheaper and easier to buy a new drive.

Best wishes,

Hello, You need to right click on to my computer>Manage>choose disk management, you should format the new SATA HDD there.

If that will work for you that is good but if not, i thing you should updated the BIOS and you have to make sure that you get that update to MSI website. if you are not familiar w/ that asked some one who know how to flash BIOS. it is risky if you are not familiar doing BIOS update!!!

Based on normal configurations, you should make sure that the pin settings on your main boot drive is set to master, and then make sure that your Deskstar is set to slave. If that doesn't work, then you might have a Bios setup issue. Let me know.

Msi k8mm-v board not detecting SATA 320 GB HDD


peets, is this drive a slave drive? if so, make sure you have the jumper ******** the hdd set for "slave" , the instructions that came with it and on top of the hdd itself shows you where that is. You should have it set up for this anyways so you can format it to your liking(i.e. if your going to partition it out or use the whole 320GB for your data). after doing this you will need to go to you bios screen when you boot up your computer(setup). Go to standard or advanced bios settings and see if the new hdd is there, your bios should recognize it, if not, make sure you write down all the info for your hdd (size, cylinders, heads, type) and input the info for a correct installation and when you are finished, make sure you save the info (F10) and (Y) computer will restart and it should see the new hdd. Also, I take it you have CD/DVD driveconnected to your primary SATA or IDE port, this should not be a problem, if so send a msg back.

M/b cannot recognize SATA HDD


This is common to other mainboards, the SATA controller have it's own BIOS, but it only works correctly using two identical SATA HD's at same time for data protection purposes. If you have a free PCI slot there are expansion cards based on VIA chipset VT6421 with 2 internal SATA ports, other external and one IDE. See one here
