Samsung Hard Disk MP0804H

Good Day! I have the above hard disk with the external casing a while ago. I now want to use it as an internal hard disk. When I connect it, the computer doesn't recognize the disk. I want to install XP Pro on it but the hard disk wasn't showing up. In the BIOS setting it says, hard disk undetected. Do I need to set the jumpers? I don't see the point cos by defualt it should be "Master" My Laptop is COMPAQ presario X1000.

    I had the same problem. I found that my hard drive connector was missing. This is why the computer can't read the disk. The cost of the connector is about $2, but as of yet, I haven't found the one that fits my model MP0804H Samsung 80 gb hard drive. If you find one please let me know.

I have a Samsung 3g 2tb harddisk and it makes strange noises. sometimes it doesnt work and a my pc freezed.


Here is what you need to know about hard drives.......

Some times you don't know if your hard drive is working or not. Your external hard disk might drop on the ground, or your desktop/laptop hard drive might not be booting. Which ever the case maybe, here is how to find out the condition of your hard disk:

Put your ear close to your hard disk, if you hear your hard disk make a crackling noise, be prepared to buy another hard disk because such hard disk is damaged and cannot be fixed. Also note that it is difficult to recover files from such hard drive.

But if you don't hear a crackling sound, use your hand(s) to feel the drive, if it vibrates, it means the hard disk is in good condition.

What damages external hard drive most times is if you don't eject (safely remove) it from your computer, when it drops on the ground or hits any hard object etc

If your external hard disk stops working, firstly, check if the hard disk inside the case is in good condition by checking for crackling sounds and vibration. Once you observe that the hard disk is in good condition, this means the hard drive case is defective/the cause of the problem. Get another drive case and your drive will work again without loosing any file/data on it.

For desktop/laptop hard drive maintenance, make sure you always shut down your computer properly, don't remove the CPU's power cord while the computer is turned on. To be on a safer side, always use UPS (uninterrupted power supply) for your desktop computer.

Also, when using your laptop, makes sure its fixed at a position. Avoid any shake as the hard disk might shift from its normal position in the process.

I hope this is helpful..........

Good luck.

You do NOT need to buy a new Samsung disk-drive.
You can buy a replacement from Western Digital, or from Seagate/Maxtor, or any other manufacturer.

Take your current Samsung disk-drive to the computer-store, so that they can sell you a new disk-drive with IDENTICAL data/power connectors (either Parallel-ATA or SATA).

good day,

try to reformat you hard disk,. if its a physical defect then there is no way you can fix it.

on the other hand, if you are familiar with RMA, then you could send the defective Hard disk that you have to the Manufacturer and they will replace it brand new...

See only one of four partitiona in a mobile disk

Go into the control panel.

Go to administrtive tools.

Go to Computer management.

Click on disk management on the left side of the screen.

Click on the drive you partitioned.

Does it show four partions?

Were they partitioned as NTFS or a different format?
