SOURCE: cant detect hard disk

hi all,i just had the same problem, heres how i fixed it.
in bios, check you settings
if using ide and sata, enable combo cable select
check motherboard compatability 1.5gps or 3.0 gbs
if 1.5 insert jumper on back of HDD
check now in BIOS to see if HDD seen.

now boot windows, open control panel, administrative tools, computer managemant, disc management and select drive, it may need to be formatted.

if you can hear the clicking sound then there is nothing a normal person can do. unless you have a spare HDD open it and replce the platter. but it is very risky
if you need the data in it badly, take it to the nearest service centre of samsung. they will recover your data within 1 month. but you will have to pay for every MB they recover.

SOURCE: windows is unable to read the usb

When you formatted the drive for the Mac, you probably used the HFS format. Windows can only read NTFS or FAT formatted drives. You will need to reformat your external drive again. If you use a FAT32 format, all computers will be able to read the drive (Windows, UNIX and Mac - anyway). Note: the FAT32 option does limit the number of files in each directory and the maximum file size.

First back up any files that you have put on the external drive to another disc (your computer's hard disc, for example).
If you are using the M2 external disc for Time Machine backups, you should partition the drive into two sections. Format one to the FAT32 and the other to HFS.

The Disc Utility in OSX can repartition the drive and reformat it. However, sometimes it doesn't correctly format the new partitions. You may need to do some extra step, see http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~pcarbo/macnexstar.html for one set of reformatting steps. In Windows, there is a similar utitily in the Disk Management Control Panel. (Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Create and format hard disk partitions (Windows 7)) You can only format the disc to FAT or NTFS with the Windows utility.

Some third-party software is available for changing the partitions on a hard drive formatted for Windows use without losing the data on the disc. I do not know if similar programs exist for OSX.

Some versions of Unix have gparted which will also repartion and reformat a hard disc but can't keep the original data on the drive. (I've used the Windows and Unix partition managers, including Paragon Partition Manager which let me keep my original Windows data on the drive.)

I hope this helps.

Hard drives can click for a couple of reasons, 1. the hard drive is not getting enough power to spin up correctly and 2. the hard drive has crashed totally which in fact can be fairly costly if you need data rescued from it - try another USB cable from the hard drive too as this may help.

If your computer or laptop has a problem detecting a USBhard drive or a USB device, and another computer can detect it, then theproblem could be a RF interference problem. Try using an USB cable that is a shielded USB cable (ie. AnUSB cable that has a clear plastic covering and you can see a metallic weavewhich covers the wires) OR a USB cable that has a Ferrite core attached to theUSB cable (the ferrite core is a cylindrical object approximately 30mm long X15mm diameter and it is attached to the USB cable near the connector).

Seagate external hard disk is not getting detected in windows 7 previously it was detecting. i tried to change usb cable, tried on different system but nothing worked. i want to take backup of data also....


This is my suggestion for you to possibly recover the back up file in your external hard disk.

Remove the enclosure cover of the external hard disk. Detach the hard disk from the ide connection.
Change the jumper setting of the hard disk to slave. See the sticker in the hard disk to see how to set up the jumper to slave. Connect the hard disk to the ide cable inside your pc. If your computer is equipped with sata cable, just find some ide cable and connect it the the ide slot in your motherboard.

Restart your system and you will find your hard disk as drive (d:) in your system. If this was successful then problem can be cause by loose terminal solder in the usb/ide connector of the enclosure, or possible voltage drop of the power supply of the enclosure. USB driver issue or problem with the usb slot in your computer can also cause this issue.

Hi there,

THere maybe a problem with the SATA/IDE connection.Check the connection first using another cable or try to another port. If it doesn't work, try the drive on another PC. Check for the power connection cable as well.

Let me know if this works,

IMac won't recognize firelite external disk


Try to connect it to another computer (Mac or PC).

Disasemble the case, and remove the disk-drive.
Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" in some other desktop computer, and see if the drive is "detected", and if your files/directories are visible.

External Hardisk Maxtor 4 One Touch not detected


Have you tried different USB cables with the drive? If the drive is self powered (no ext power supply) which I think that one is, then it needs a really good cable to draw the 5 volts from the USB port. If you have tried a known working cable, then it could be the USB controller or the disk itself. You can buy the USB box on eBay really cheap and move the drive over.

I have a dell tower that has windows 98,when i turned the tower on,it is saying the primary disk drive 0 cannot be found.what does that mean,and what can i do to get it to work?


Your hard drive is not being recognised by the motherboard. Try this...
  1. Unplug your computer from the power supply.
  2. Remove the side cover on the case.
  3. Unplug the 2 cables from your hard drive. (it will be at the front of the case and look like a block of metal with 2 cables going into it)
  4. The plugs will only go back in one way, so be sure you have them the right way around before trying to reconnect them The power plug has 2 tapered edges on the top and the IDE cable (the thick one) has a notch. Both will match up to the hard drive. On some older driver/IDE cables there is no notch. In this case, the red wire will be closes to the power plug.
  5. Reboot and see if it is detected now.
If not, post back and we can try something else.
