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