Open Question

MHV2080BH 80GB Hard Drive in external case - no media

I have the subject HDD that I took out of a Dell Inspiron laptop replaced with a larger capacity drive. I bought a SATA to USB case and installed the drive in it. Now I cannot access the drive. Disk Manager sees the device and assigns a drive letter but it says No Media. I swapped the drives, re-installing the subject drive in the laptop and installing the new drive in the case. Laptop starts fine, external drive is recognized. Both drives run Windows 7, external drive with new HDD is recognized on Windows XP PC. Any ideas?

SOURCE: recovering files from a bad drive using external hdd enclosureh

Hi, I usually use GetDataBack (2 versions FAT and NTFS). I have used this program to recover files from HDs similarly connected (external case > USB). The freeware versions will allow you only a limited number of files at a time, the paid version will allow you to recover all (including purposely deleted files). There are similar programs/freeware but my experience with GetDataBack has been super so far that I really have no reason to look for another one. Pls refer to the 2nd image on this link where GTB was recovering files from an HD that is not even recognized by Windows XP in "My Computer". http://www.fixya.com/support/t191153-device_recognized Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: my laptop is not working

if your computers motherboard is older than 5yrs and does not have 2 gb of ram it will not support windows 7 also since you have removed your hard drive you must have moved the leads attached

one bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

SOURCE: Fujitsu sata mhv2080bh 80GB drive partition in windows 7

Not sure what your question is but it seems like you are having some type of partition size issue with windows 7. I see that you say you have an 80GB drive which is very small so there is not much to partition on it.

Just replaced my hdd on Compac Presario 2100 but the system is not detecting it.


This model laptop came with a 60Gb hard disk and if you installed a much larger capacity hard disk then the BIOS cannot detect this hard disk.
For the BIOS to detect a large hard disk a BIOS upgrade is required (if there is one available) Check the HP/Compaq WEB site to see if there is a BIOS upgrade.
If not the try a 120Gb or smaller capacity hard drive.
As an alternative -
You can keep the existing hard drive in your laptop and use an external USB hard drive to store your data.

Laptop SATA drive not working


You cannot take a hard drive out of your faulty HP laptop and insert it into any laptop and expect it to run/boot up. When Windows is installed on a laptop, it is configured with device drivers for that particular laptop and it wont work in another laptop with different devices.
Replace the Dell's hard drive back into its laptop and the Dell should function normally.
To recover data off the SATA Hitachi hard drive, connect this hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter and then plug this adapter with the Hitachi hard drive into the USB port of your Dell. The Dell will detect the Hitachi as an external Mass storage device. You can then open the various folders and files to back up your data onto the Dell laptop or USB memory stick.
If you want to, you can use the Hitachi hard disk as an USB external hard drive by installing it into an USB SATA hard drive enclosure.

I have a Fujitsu 80gb Sata hard Drive (2.5) which I have an adapter to use as a external Harddrive. However my computer and others only recognise it as a 14 gb drive. How do I get the full 80gb?


It seems this is caused by setting jumpers on your hard disk. Checkand return it to the correct position. Normally, your disk should be inthe position of Master or Slave.

Want to replace 80Gb HDD with a bigger one. How? Do I have to copy everything from the original one to the new one before actually replacing it? how?


Hi there,
Before you change the 80 GB Hard Drive you can take the backup of your hard drive to the External Hard Drive or if you have any sata case so you put your new hard Drive in the sata case and make 2-3 partitions in the new drive and copy your data in the new hard drive except in first partition which will be primary C Drive for your laptop and will replace data when you install windows in it. after the windows is installed and your data is verified in your new hard drive you can clear your old hard Drive or use it as an External Hard Drive (as you like )
2nd thing which is more safer and reliable is that you make backup CD/DVDs for your data before proceed to formatting or even changing hard drives, it will be very useful and helpful for any unforeseen data loss
if you require more assistance regarding this feel free to reply to this post

How big of ata hdd is compatible with this, old hdd wore out


Hi,

As far as i know the maximum capacity drive is a 160GB drive.

The most common drives shipped with that model is usually 40GB.

If you update the BIOS it could take a larger drive.

Bigger hdd for sony vaio pcg-f309


You can use 20/40 Gb hard drives. the BIOS may be too old to support the 60/80Gb hard drive.
The only problem is, that it is impossible to purchase new hard drives of these capacities, the smallest capacity available now are 120Gb and larger.
You may be able to get 2nd hand drivers, but you won't not know how long they will work until they fail, probably doesn't matter, they should be cheap.
