Question about Samsung HD502HJ Samsung 500 GIGAByTE SATA DESKTOP STORAGE 7200 RPM 16MB CACHE BA Hard Drive
Samsung HDD division was only recently sold to Seagate.
"ST" is a Seagate number so your drive cannot be old - manufactured by ex-Samsung factory now part of Seagate.
Utility from Seagate (e.g. Seatools) should be able to display from S.M.A.R.T the number online hours.

Hey, congratulations on successfully installing the harddive.
Since its brand new, there is no volume in the disk (no partition and not formated)
To create a new volume and format the disk for the first time
on desktop, right click my computer icon, select manage from the menu, on the left side of the management window click on disk management
now on the right side, find your new harddrive, right click on it (its most likely the drive 1)
so right click on the 250gb hdd, create new volume, use NTFS default settings, and you may use quick format. normal format will take from 15 minutes to a hour or more.
with quick format the disk will be useable within seconds.
after this is complete you will see a new disk in my computer.
If you need more assistance let me know, I'm here to help
Also, remember to rate the solutions :-)

All ways best to used new cables (sata/Ide) I like to set jumpers on the HD's never cable select. Also try installing one harddrive at a time. Second make sure in bios is set to boot from main HD.

On XP, it was Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management.
Upgrade the 120gb to a Dynamic disk and then extend the partition, or if there's no data on it yet, delete the 32gb and create a 120gb one.
Should not be that different under Win7. Hasn't changed much since NT4.0
