For getting data off of old hard drives, a USB to IDE/PATA connector is a wonderful tool. My favorite is like this one, with a dual head - one side for 3.5" & 5.25" IDE drives and the other for 2.5" IDE drives. That covers the vast majority of older consumer-level equipment.

Just hook your old drive to a device like this, then plug it into your USB port. It will automatically show up as an extra drive so you can copy the data off.

Hi my Transcend 320 GB harddisk is not getting detected. Storejet 320Gb


hello

connect the USB external hard disk to usb port by the way disconnect other working harddisks
available on the system, boot the system with bootable cd/floppy go to command prompt and run
chkdsk on this drive

Also download "mbrfix" connect all working harddisks along with the nondetecting harddisk and run mbrfix for the USB defective harddisk

Try using different USB data transfer cable, if power source adapter is used check for rated power output in multimeter for this adapter, if found defective replace it with new/good adapter with same
specifications

Bad luck if harddisk controller has failed you have to go in for new harddisk

GOOD LUCK ooo

ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard recognizing 320 GB SATA harddisk. Why?


It could be that your BIOS needs updating for this motherboard. Take note of your BIOS version when your computing is booting. Try hitting the Pause key to freexe the screen, but if no luck go into BIOS and see if the BIOS version is listed. You typically get in BIOS by hitting the "Delete' key on your keyboard when the computer starts up and the first bunch of words appear in white characters (might be a light grey)

Latest BIOS (note its a beta version ie not formally released) is
K8V-MX Beta BIOS 0501
Latest beta BIOS.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
