When the HDD was fornatted, was it formatted appropriately? It's quite possible to format a 160GB HDD to present a smaller amount of space.

If it's making rattling noises, it's failing (or failed). The only repair is a new drive.

Bought an mp3 (used) fitted with this hdd. Capacity appears to be 15gb but all I read says 20GB? Wheres the other 5?


It depends what "units" you use when you measure.

For example, it could be that the
'20GB' is 20 * 1000 * 1000 * 1000, while
'18GB' is 18.6 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024,
rounded-down to 2 decimal places,
e.g., '18.6' is 3 decimal places, while '18.0' is 2 decimal places.

This is a "trick" by Toshiba (and all other disk-manufacturers) to make their disk-drives more "attractive".

MY C drive Booting drive is 30GB, in side c drive file properties is showing 20GB bt free space is showing 2GB


Its probably formatted not to use the entire space of the disk, is there another partition or "D" drive where your restore/backup stuff is? That could be take up the rest of the space. Hard disks are always described as being a certain size but can be formatted by windows tlo split up the drive into smaller chunks called partitions. Your C drive/partition might be way less then 30Gb therefore only showing up as 22Gb

Try to turn it off and quickly turn it on again in a split second.

And buy a second hard disk just in case.

Harddrive not detecting


hi there

the space is still there its just has not been partictioned. Goto diskmanager and you will see the other 60 gig that has not been partictioned, use windows to create a logical drive then format it then you will see the other 60 gig.

good luck

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
