My hard disk ST3120022A is detected by motherboard but it does not make me more nothing. ps: bad sectors has 12 at the beginning sectors of the hard disk.

The "table-of-contents" of the files on the disk-drive are usually written in the first few sectors. If those sectors are "bad", your files will be inaccessible.

It's time to buy a new disk-drive, and reinstall Windows.

Samsung 80gb hard driver looks 30 gb why ?

it may have been partitioned to be 2 seperate drive partitions. When a drive is first formatted, you can cut it up into seperate pieces.
explore your computer and add up your drives and gigs.
If not, then the Bios needs to be manually changed for that drive, but in todays modern computers this is rare.

Problem in hard disk

hi Kumar, you may not have noticed it in the past, but most drives aren't 100% the capacity that is shown on the box.

There are two reasons for this:
System Overhead use and the way Microsoft counts a MegaByte (1,024,000 bytes) versus how the manufacturers count a MegaByte (1,000,000 bytes).

Hope this helps.

Partision prblem

This is because an 80GB hard drive only has 75GB inside it will not be exact because of the way hard drive manufacturers compute the size. 80GB by name but only 75GB in real hard drive space. much like a if you have a flash drive or a portable uSB you will notice this also.
