Question about Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP1604N 160 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

My HP Pavillion crashed. The hard drive is the sp1604n. I bought a new computer but want to tranfer or copy the picture files on the old (sp1604n) drive to my new computer. The old computer was windows xp and the new one is vista 64-bit. using a external hard drive case I have tried to hook up to the new computer. It shows the drive and lists it as a "local disk" It will not open. It says I must format it first. Formatting however would defeat the purpose because I am trying to salvage files that formatting would erase. How can I get those files saved anywhere that I can then access?

In your new computer go to all programs then to your user guide. Once there open the guide and follow prompts to transfer data from old computer to your new one. Some stuff may have to be reformatted do work with Vista.

It should plug in as a Windows Storage device.This will appear as another drive on the computer.
Copy the file across the "new" drive.
Then ask windows to stop using the drive  by clicking on the USB device icon and selecting stop storage device.
Then you can disconnect it safely.

I have a hp pavillion ze5385us hard drive making all kinds weird sounds with stop:0x0000008E and vertical lines in center of screen besides a new hard drive can this be fixed andis this worth fixing?


You may have two problems, or just one.

The disk-drive is "failing" -- if it is "misreading" the "wallpaper" picture, then the viewed wallpaper will look to be "corrupted".

Backup all your files, to DVD-writable or USB memory-sticks,
before the disk-drive completely "dies".

Given that you have a "Athlon 64 3800+", it's worth replacing the disk-drive, reinstalling Windows, and restoring your files from your backup.
Much cheaper to replace the disk-drive than to buy a new computer.

Sometimes it is easier to install a new hard disk and reinstall Windows.
Then either connect the old hard drive as a slave drive (don't forget to set the jumper on this drive as a slave). The other way is to connect the old hard drive to a USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. this computer will see it as an external hard drive (provided the hard drive is still functioning).
Either way you can download and backup your files.

Transfer data from a dead laptop to a new laptop


Do you have a usb to SATA connector? If so you can plug the old drive into the USB slot and it will act as a slave so you can pull the contents from the old drive to the new. The adapter is about 25.00 or If it was me I would invest into a pocket USB hard drive case that you can put your old drive into perminatly so you can always have a external hard drive for back up later after yo uhave moved the data over and reformatted it. The case is $25-$40.00.
