Question about Fujitsu MHV2080AT (MHV2080AT50PK) 80 GB Hard Drive
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?

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

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.
