Question about Samsung SpinPoint V40 SV6003H 60 GB Hard Drive
My experience has shown that there is a GREAT difference between different USB cables. I have had some which did not seem to transfer the power efficiently to the device. I've had others which would not make a connection to my computer at all.
I almost threw away a number of very expensive LiON batteries for my Sony camera because the USB cord I was using to charge the batteries in the camera was not working. Then I was surprised when a shorter USB cable from a cheap device worked just fine with my Sony camera, and I was able to charge all my batteries.
I have accumulated a number of different USB cords. And I try them all until I've run out of cords to try, or I find one that works.

try ebay with the same model number. You can transfer the circuit boards, retrieve the data, then you have a spare backup. Otherwise you can try to identify the component and check if digikey or mouser has a replacement. Sometimes if you're lucky the component is a bias diode that is designed to burn out with reversed power. Sometimes the visible damage may not be the only damage and other parts have fried. Touch a grounded object (like the case of your computer that's plugged in) before touching the components, and retouch it frequently, or wear static dissipative wrist strap

SOURCE: using as startup disk
If you used Acronis, you need to clone the 30Gb and not backup. In doing so, the booting information is likewise copied to the 80Gb, whereas back up is simply copying contents (that you specified) hence will not boot and not be active.
Pls remember that by cloning, Acronis would erase the partition (and contents) of the 80Gb. At certain settings, it would also split the 80Gb into 2 partitions; 30Gb & 50Gb. Further, verify that the 80Gb is "Set Active" and partitioned as a Primary and not Logical.
As to your other concern of installing, in some instances, some not so recent motherboards' BIOS/CMOS will not recognize the 80Gb. Other than that, you were doing it correct; new 80Gb as primary/master with jumper to the pins nearest the IDE cable, any other device (CD ROM or another HD) should be set as primary/slave (SL). Additionally, pls verify that your motherboard auto-detected your new 80Gb as your primary boot media (settings in your CMOS/BIOS).
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: jumper pin settings
Hold the samsung SP1203N hard drive in your left hand with the lable facing upwards (then power cable connectors will be on your right hand side and the IDE cable connector will be on your left ahnd side). There are two raws of jumper pins in between the above two connectors
Master - join the first two column of pins on the left with a vertical jumper
Slave - leave all pins free (without jumpers)
Cable Select - join the third column of pins from the left with a vertical jumper
job done !!

Although A format could help it sounds more like you have some bad sectors on the harddrive.
Right click on the drive, select properties, then select the tools menu and initiate a disk check. it will give you an option screen before it proceeds, select the option to scan for a recover bad sectors/clusters. This will write off and mark the bad sectors so they will not be used again. If the problem comes back again soon then your palette media is failing and you should replace the drive.
Good luck and let us know how you make out,
