New internal hard drive not showing up

I just installed a new seagate barracuda 750GB drive in my Power G5 and it is not showing up on the desktop.  Is there a driver I need to install or a step I'm missing?

Re: new internal hard drive not showing up

Go to Start----Control Panel----Add Hardware  and go through the detection wizard. You also need to name the new drive by right clicking on My Computer and press Manage----Storage----Disc Management. The new drive should show up without a letter for the drive. Right click on the new drive and choose Change Drive Letter And Paths. You can also format it there too if you havn't already.

Interface seagate barracuda 7200.7 200GB drive sata to usb 2 forum

Hello. You are correct that there are no jumpers, however, when you connected the SATA cable to the Internal hard drive, did you notice there were two similar connectors. One was for the SATA the other, longer one is for the POWER for the drive. If your SATA to USB has both connectors make sure they are both installed properly. Be careful you don't break those little plastic tabs because they are not warrantied. If the drive does have power and spins up then it may not be initialized (formatted) and will need to be initialized using START, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management. or just click on start and type diskmgmt.msc in the RUN box.
Hope this helps..

Just installed seagate barracuda 250gb 6gb internal hard drive with a gigabyte ga-945pl-s3 mother board and it will only recognise 130Gig! been through the bios but nothing stands out to say enable larger...

The maximum hard drive you can install depends upon the BIOS. You MAY BE able to install a larger hard drive if the BIOS upgrade will allow it. I suggest you go to the Gigagyte WEB site to check on this possibility.

Lags and says has bad sector after 14 months

Good day sir/maam, hi, 14 months is too short for a hard disk operating span, what we do is run the diskmanager software that comes with the seagate hard disk, on the diskmanager menu, run the low level format which usually removes the bad sectored space out of the way, and mark it as not usable. then may I suggest you partition your hard drive to 2, one for windows and the the other for data. call your computer dealer if they have in house techs for service, or get the copy of disk manager for your seagate. Hope this helps, thanks

It recognizes the new hard drive as a DVD drive

have you partitioned and formated it ? unless you do that to the drive it will not show up with a drive letter in windows. go into control panel, administrive tools, computer management, disk management - there you should see all your drives and you can partiton, format, assign or reassign drive letters to them. hope this solves your problem.

How to install a new seagate hard drive?

I have one thats ide ultra, & my computers see it as a disc drive, like a cd drive when i put it in an external seagate case. but when i put it in as an internal it shows up in cmos w/ 320 g space, & no matter which pin config i use it doesnt show when the os is booted. I enabled LBA like it says on the drive, & tried all the other options in CMOS & havent got it to go yet, but it sounds like its running perfectly when it powers up. it'll go, but its actin crazy. ill post it when i get that bastard.
