Question about Samsung Computers & Internet
My Motherboard P4BP-MX NOT recognize Samsung 1 TB HDD Model HD103SL Is my Motherboard exceeds its LIMIT? I am using IDE - SATA Converter for this.
Purchase a $20 external USB drive case or SATA Card at Frys.com and install it.
Your OS needs to support the size also. The Firmware on the drive may not support the slower speeds also.

SOURCE: SATA connection
Do a Google search for "SATA adaptor for laptops". This should point you to available SATA to USB adaptors. Haven't clue how well they work, but they are out there

Avinash thaks for providing the exact error..
Re: A Disk Read Error Occured. Press CTRL ALT DEL to restart
1 - Have you tried a different IDE cable?
If not give it a go and do a repair if needed again!
2 - You may have a corrupt MBR (master boot record)!! You will need to reformat and do Fdisk /mbr to delete the master boot record!! Save all data first as this will not allow you to access any of your data as all file location addresses are located in the MBR!!
3 - Your harddrive may have a bad sector get a zerofill tool(low level formatting tool)!! This will rewrite you HD's sectors putting them back to factory spec's!! Maxtors is called Maxblast you can get it from thier site!!
4 - or it could be a defective drive, but most read errors are due ot corrupt MBR or a bad sector!! Good Luck D.i.l.i.p

If you can hear clicking then I am afraid there is a serious problem with the hard drive.
The noise you can hear is usually known as "the click of death" when referring to hard drives.
Make sure you use ONLY the cable that came with it or a SHORTER one.
Dont connect via a USB hub
Make sure you only user the power supply that CAME WITH IT.
Most common causes are that the drive unit was dropped or mishandled or just plain old age
There is no known cure unless the data is mission critical
In which case you could sent it to a data recovery specialist but this is usually VERY expensive.
If you are advised to place it in a freezer or anything similar then that is up to you
but my advise would be to run from the person who may give this advise.
This is very old fashioned advice and meant for very old types of drives that used to get very hot.
If it a drive that was / is from an external enclosure then you could still use the enclosure and just place a new hard drive in there.
Another way to test it it to remove it from the enclosure and connect it directly to a PC with a suitable interface eg. SATA or IDE.
If it IDE make sure that the master / slave jumper is set correctly and also double check your power connection

Find in your BIOS if you have an option that says configure SATA as IDE, AHCI and raid. Set it at IDE and try again to install the OS. After intaling do not switch back because it will not work.
