Question about Samsung (SP0822N) 80 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Using as startup disk

I have my system on a samsung 30gb drive . I now wish to move it to my 80gb Samsung spin point. The 30gb contents have been transfered to the new drive using Acronis backup. As a second drive there were no jumpers on the 2nd drive and one jumping the extreme left pair on the master drive. I have tried putting the 80gb drive in the 30gb position using the same jumper setting, however the system does not fire up with or without the jumper. In disk manager the old disk shows as 'system'. Thank you

Hi,

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.

> Samsung ... 80 GB ... 3-year warranty .. unreadable ...

Sorry, but your disk-drive has stopped working (compare it to writing in pen onto greasy paper, and then trying to read what you wrote -- you won't get 100% readability).

The only "good-news" is that the warranty for your disk-drive could still be valid,
meaning that Samsung will replace the disk-drive, at their cost.

Can i make my 80GB hard drive to 100GB? 80GB 7200rpm SATA SAMSUNG


This is not possible, 80Gb is 80Gb and 100gb is 100gb, but I am afraid, even if you like to replace, you'll not be able to get 100gb since it's no a standard Hard disk capacity. If you are trying to upgrade, then you can find 120gb, 160gb, 250gb, 320gb etc... Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

A Non Disk Hard Drive "?"


Yes there are solid state hard drives available but they are not cheap and at present they cannot match the capacities available in the standard hard drives.
Check these comments I downloaded fron the WEB.


As prices continue to drop, however, flash-based SSDs (solid-state drives) have become viable options for handling primary storage requirements. Moreover, today's roomiest SSDs have 32GB of memory, enough to do more than satisfy basic storage needs - making them competitive with 1.8in hard-disk drives, which range in capacity from 30GB to 80GB.
These SSDs, available from companies such as Samsung and SanDisk, are lightweight (the SanDisk UATA 5000, for example, weighs 59g) and can be found in the US in laptops from Dell, Fujitsu and Toshiba.
Are they worth the extra cost? In spite of price drops, SSDs cost £200 to £250 more than ordinary hard drives of the same capacity. To justify the price difference, SSD laptops must demonstrate significant performance benefits over notebooks equipped with standard hard drives.

I have a 80GB disk, but only 30GB is a recognized partition by Windows.i need instructions


Most likely the problem is that you have another blank partition. The Microsoft disk management tool can probably solve this. This is a tutorial on how to use it. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000/

Let us know if this works out for you.

Was this 80GB cloned (copied) from an old 30GB disk?

Open Computer Management window doing this:

Start button - settings - control panel - administrative tools - computer management.
In the window that open, on the left hand side pane, expand Storage and click Disk Management. On the left hand side window, lower pane you should see a list of disks. See Disk 0,Basic <disk size>, Online. Do you see the 80GB as disk size? To the right you would see a series of boxes. Probably you see (C:) 30GB NTFS Healthy (system). Do you see to the right of it a box with 50GB (unknown partition)?

If so, you do have a 80GB disk, but only 30GB is a recognized partition by Windows. You can still use the the unknown partition. Post back here if you need instructions.
