Question about Samsung 1TB SATA2 7200RPM 32MB HD103UJ 334 GB SATA Hard Drive

1 Answer

HD Shows up as 32 Mbyte instead of 1TByte

I bought a 1 TByte drive thinking that all my storage issues were solved, but instead it turns out that it was my worst buy ever, my 1TByte drive only comes up as 32Mbyte NOT 32GByte and no matter what I do with the drive it still comes up as 32Mbyte, I have found all possible tools on the Samsung site to try to restore it to it's original size, without success, i also a while ago found an article with a 3rd party tool that was supposed to fix this issue, and all of them fails, I have tried on 3 different computers without success. I'd be really happy if some one has a solution for me.

Thanks
Stefan

    This does not matter if it's under Vista, XP or any Linux, I have tried all, it's already under the bios settings that I get this. And it's a fairly new MB that I'm using as well it's a Gigabyte P35-DS3L bios rev 8

Well, yes for me to be able to help you navigate through the OS to accomplish a connection. I agree, it should have recognized the drive under any XP and above OS, but I don't know what you have.
So, I will give you instructions for Win-XP Pro. Unless the drive is bad, this should get it reformatted and recognized.

Use these steps to help navigate to a utility to 1) format the drive and then 2) assign a drive letter to the drive manually.

Go Start> Control Panel> Administrative Tools> Computer Management
Select Disk Management under Storage
Look to see if your Drive is listed and what the Status, Layout, Type, and File System it has.

Right mouse click on the dive and click on Format.
When Format completes then perform a Change Drive Letter and Path.

Backup hdd to external hd


DVD recorders are usually not the first selection for backup of data files. you may be better off with a 1 Tbyte external drive, which is suited for that purpose. Even though the DVD drive has the capacity, there are usually formatting issues with data files being burned to a DVD recorder.

How big is a 1 tb hd


A terabyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information. The prefix tera means 1012 in the International System of Units (SI), and therefore 1 terabyte is 1000000000000bytes, or 1 trillion (short scale) bytes, or 1000 gigabytes. 1 terabyte in binary prefixes is 0.9095 tebibytes, or 931.32 gibibytes. The unit symbol for the terabyte is TB or Tbyte.

In my motherboard manual(ASUS P5GV-TMX) specifications there is an entry showing storage/RAID -- 1 x UltraDMA 100/66/33 4 x Serial ATA First are those speeds ?? So does this mean it doesnt support UDMA...


You have 1 IDE connector (1 X UltraDMA) labeled PRI_IDE on your MB that uses a flat ribbon cable to connect with hard drives or optical drives that use that type of connection. The 100/66/33 are transfer rates: 100 MB/s, 66MB/s, or 33MB/s. These connections are quickly becoming a thing of the past and being replaced by the faster SATA (Serial ATA) connections which have transfer rates of 150 MB/s to 300MB/s. Your motherboard has 4 SATA connectors. (4 X Serial ATA)

Thanks for using Fixya.

My WD Mybook TByte HD is not being recognized


There could be many reasons, but I had the same issues.
It turns out I had mistakingly swapped the 12v DC PSU with another one, the drive would light up, it would click but that was it. Nothing. Gave me the runaround for ages. Seems they need more current than the little PSU I was trying could deliver, so I swapped it for a 2 amp supply and it works fine.

try plugging your HD into another desktop/laptop to see if your HD is functioning well on a different computer. Could be the USB cable problem.

Can't boot larger than 8gb hard drive


This is a known issue at HP, you should download and install the 68P4M ROM which will solve this:

- Fixes issue where system serial number was lost after upgrade to the new BIOS.
- Fixes variation in the noise of the fan when in motion.
- Fixes error where L1 cache shows only 16KB instead of 20KB in F10 Setup.
- Fixes error where FDISK could only see 8GB of 40GB and 60GB in the Multibay Hard Drive.
