My dard disc wont detict


When installing a new hard drive, a PC may not recognize the hard drive. Incorrect cable installations, jumper settings and BIOS settings may cause the computer to be unable to detect your hard drive. Due to the vast differences in hard drive types (IDE versus SATA) and brands, motherboard brands and types, and BIOS types and configurations, please download or acquire your motherboard and hard drive manufacturers' documentation prior to acquiring a hard drive. Make sure that the type of hard drive you plan to purchase is compatible with the motherboard.
Shut down the computer. Unplug all cables and peripheral devices. Clip the anti-static wrist bracelet to a metal object, and attach the bracelet to your wrist. Remove the computer's side panel. (Cases vary. Some will require a small Phillips screwdriver for removal and others feature screwless designs. Please see your case manual if you are unsure.) Locate the newly installed hard drive. Check that two cables are running from the hard drive to the motherboard and to the power supply. If you see only one cable or if either of the cables are not securely seated, plug in the appropriate connector(s). Leave the case's side panel off for now. Reconnect the power cable, monitor cable, and keyboard and mouse connections. Restart the computer. Enter your BIOS immediately. (Your BIOS usually alerts you to the key required to adjust settings. If your screen does not show this information or if you are unsure, consult your motherboard manual.) If it is an IDE hard drive, enter the IDE settings. The BIOS should show the hard drive. Configure it as primary or secondary, according to your computer's configuration. (If you have only one drive, set this to primary. Otherwise, set as secondary.) Save your settings, and exit the BIOS. Once you are certain that the the PC is recognizing the hard drive, replace the side panel. Detect a SATA Hard Disk If you have connected a SATA (serial ATA) hard drive to your computer but are not able to access the files on it, then your system may not be detecting the drive correctly. On either a PC or Mac computer, you can manually detect and mount a hard drive that is locally connected. Once properly detected, the drive will become available for file transfer.
Plug the SATA hard drive firmly into your PC computer and ensure that the drive is powered on. Open the Start menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon. Open the "Administrative Tools" folder and double-click on the "Computer Management" icon. Go to the "Disk Management" tool on the left side of the control panel window. This brings up a list of all drives currently connected to your computer. Right-click on the SATA drive that you want your computer to detect and choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths." Click on the "Add" button and then select the drive letter that you want to be assigned to the SATA hard drive. Click "OK" to save the settings and detect the SATA drive. b> Mac Instructions b> Plug the SATA hard drive firmly into your Mac computer and ensure that the drive is powered on. Open a new Finder window and navigate to the "Utilities" folder, which is located in the "Applications" section of the Mac hard drive. Double-click on the "Disk Utility" icon. Highlight the SATA hard drive that you want your computer to detect from the list of connected drives on the left side of the window. Click on the "Mount" button at the top of the window to have the system manually detect the SATA drive. Hope this helps.

Same problem here.........clicks n all...... After smacking the external hard...


My hard drive was dead and wasn't recognized by the computer, it didn't even start, just a few clicking noises, which according to some of the experiences is the same as a DEAD Hardisk. Anyways, as I read that sometimes this happens as a result of a hit, well, I wacked my HD as a last hope for it to recover its "memory" (as in the movies) and believe me or not, it worked! I don't know if this might help yours, but it saved mine! 
The way I did it was like this: I started the pc and when the HD started to run and I heard a couple of clicks, I hit it against the table while in vertical position (assuming that the arm of the HD might slightly move better that way) one time, and then when the spinning and the first click was heard agin I hit again. After that I heard the typical searching sound of a HD, and you can imagine I started to pray that what I heard wasn't my anxiety sound (if it has any). Now I am a firm believer in the old trick of whacking the old TV to get the vital signal back! 
Good luck to you too!

How do i update my Archos 504?


How to install firmware ..?(update)

Step 1. Download the firmware to your computer-->click HERE to download the update file When you download the update file, your browser may warn you that the file 'could be harmful'. This is normal because browsers are not familiar with files that have a .AOS extension and suspect that they could be malicious. These files are not harmful to your computer.

Step 2. Turn on your ARCHOS device and connect it to your computer with the USB cable

Step 3. On the ARCHOS, choose to connect and wait a few seconds for your device to be detected by the computer

Step 4. Copy and paste the downloaded firmware (.AOS file) to the ARCHOS device.
  • Case 1: logo_firm_hdd.jpg Your ARCHOS is detected by your computer as a Hard Drive (E: for example) in Windows® Explorer. Paste the update file directly onto the ARCHOS hard drive icon.
  • Case 2: logo_firm_g4.jpg Your ARCHOS device is detected as a 'Mobile Device' in Windows® Explorer (not as a hard drive) and you see just two folders Data and Media when you open it. Paste the update file into the folder called Data.
  • Case 3: logo_firm_g4.jpg Your ARCHOS device is detected as a 'Mobile Device' in Windows® Explorer (not as a hard drive) and you see Internal Hard Drive when you open it. Open this Internal Hard Drive icon and you will see the various ARCHOS folders inside (Video, Music, etc.). Paste the update file into this area but be careful not to paste it into any of the folders there.
Step 5. Disconnect the Device
Unplug the USB cable (for 'Mobile Device' connections) or use the "safe disconnect" green arrow icon (for Hard drive connection) in the system tray before unplugging the USB cable.

Step 6. On your ARCHOS device, click on "Update Firmware"
Click on the "tab" button to show the settings screen. Select the "System" icon and then click on the "Update Firmware" button. For the ARCHOS 104, 202, & 204, go to the settings and open the icon "System" where you can find the Update Firmware button.

My External Hard Drive isn't working anymore, to say the just of it. It's on, lights on(not flashing, it flashes when it's being written to or accessed), usually has a regular clicking noise from it...


When a hard drive makes a clicking noise, this indicates the hard drive has failed and if the BIOS and the Computer Management does not detect it, then this confirm a hard disk failure.
To get the computer operating again, replace the hard disk, then install Windows on the hard disk using the Windows installation CD and the Windows product installation code that is on the label on the computer then install the device drivers and your programs.

Driver not detected - backup failed


I assume Seagate suggested you "reinstall" the drivers. If that's the case, you may still need to refresh your computer's device list to properly identify the drive.

If you're running Windows you may try opening "Device Manager" and uninstalling the device from the list, then "detect hardware changes". This may make your computer redetect the drive like it's a new device, but may not.

I suggest phoning Seagate back and ask to talk to a knowledgable tech, not the scripted phoners.

What operating system ARE you running anyways?
