On your desktop, look for the my computer icon(xp) or computer icon (vista) then right click it and then go to manage, then go to storage, you should be able to see your drive there unformatted.

You can't really repair it. Replace it under warranty is the best option. If you need data recovery I suggest http://FreeDataRecovery.us

Hitachi Deskstar - modelo HDP725050GLA360 Sata... tengo este modelo de disco lo tengo en ungabinete externo de disco se cayo y ya no lo,lee tampo en una comutadora como puedo salvarlo


Hola que tal, tengo malas noticias, cuando un disco duro se cae lo mas probable es que se dañe, lamentablemente no hay forma de reparar el disco pero sí de extraer la información que está grabada en él, cuesta muchisimo dinero extraer la informacion ya que requiere de equipos y personal calificado para la recuperación, si la información es muy importante y si puedes pagar aproximadamente 600$ por la recuperación el camino a seguir es buscar una empresa de recuperación de datos en tu país.

Lástima darte estas malas noticias...

Hitachi Deskstar - Model HDP725050GLA360 Sata 3.0 500 GB S/N RJ3KSXHE Clicking sound after being dropped. Is there any hope of recovering the data on this drive at a reasonable price?


if the hard disk has crashed and the sound when it runs later he failed to be detected by the system, it is difficult to restore the data in it because it was not detected by the computer. The cheapest way is that you replace with only secondhand.

Setting up a Computer to install Windows XP Professional.


Pedro -

I'll assume each of these is an IDE device, meaning each has a wide connector versus a narrow SATA connector commonly found on newer hard drives.

Your motherboard should have two IDE channels, labeled IDE 1 and IDE 2, Primary IDE and Secondary IDE, or something similar. Each IDE channel can support two devices.

For best performance between the drives, you will want to have the Hard Drive connected as Master(Drive 0) on the Primary IDE channel; The CDROM should be connected as Slave(Drive 1) on the Primary IDE channel. Connect the DVDROM as Master(Drive 0) on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP Drive as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

When connecting the drives, make sure you set the jumpers correctly; Both the Hard Drive and the DVDROM should have their jumpers set to Master, the CDROM and Zip drives should have their jumpers set to Slave. An alternative is to set the jumpers for every drive to Cable Select(CS), allowing the physical connection of each drive to determine whether its a Master or Slave device.

*Note*
If your Hard Drive is a SATA device, connect it to the '0' or '1' SATA connector on the motherboard. Have the DVDROM set up by itsself as Master on the primary IDE channel, the CDROM as Master on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

Hope this helps!
