Cannot see drive letter for deskstar 7k250 in usb enclosure winxp

I have a hitachi deskstar 7K250 (250 GB) hard drive that is my data drive in an old windows 2000 computer. I wanted to get it out of the old machine to use as a backup drive for the new machine. My new PC has WinXP SP2. I got a acomdata USB enclosure for it and installed the drive in it. Upon connecting to WinXP, the hardware wizard seems to find a "USB storage device" but does not assign a drive letter.

Look for electronic board or complete hard disk Hitachi Deskstar IDE 120 Go HDS722512VLAT20 in order to read an identical disk for which the electronic board is burnt.


Good luck. Try searching on eBay, and use "contact seller" to confirm that they are selling _exactly_ what you are wanting to buy.

Hard desk can't dectet the hard desk


I would recommend TechRx, inc. for a free exam of the drive. The Hitachi Deskstar drive has some unique featues that allow a data recovery company to do firmware repair easier than other brands of drives. When a drive is not detected, it could be due to NVRAM corruption on the drive. If you find my answer helpful, please leave feedback/rank.

I want put my Hitachi Deskstar 7K250 80GB Hard Drive from a t2885 emachines on a HP/Compaq K8N8X-LA mother board without losing my data.


You won't loose your data Why wold you think you would? once data is written to a hard drive it remains there until it is removed be a user, it works on the same principlea a floppy, the magnetic coating on the surface of the anodized disks inside of the HD are written to and retain memory of the data, the only things in a computer that won't keep their data are the RAM chips which need electricity running through them to work.

there are few thing you ahve to keep in mind

there are two type of hard disk
1. IDE
2. SATA

As per your hdd capacity it should of IDE type.

Now there are two IDE slots on motherboard. One is Primary and other is Secondary

You can fix two hdd with one IDE Slot that mean you can fix up upto faour IDE hdd at a time

Now again there are Primary master and Primary Slave

and

Secondary Master and Secondary Slave

Now You have to examine what was the location of previous hdd
1 Primary Master
2 Primary Slave
3 Secondary Master
4 Secondary Slave.

Now you have to make a HDD master or Slave.

just in between data cable connector and power cable connector there is a jumper. that specify the master or slave. do reply me if it works well thanks
