Re: Serial number missing

The volume serial number is automatically generated when you format the drive. By using the Seagate utility to zero fill the drive, you have made it blank and destroyed all data, including the partition table and filesystem. Re-partition and re-format the drive.

No boot hd disk error

HDD not Detecting only Some region, if you HDD data cable damage, HDD power Cable damage, HDD port damage, or HDD bad sector. But normally you change HDD data or power cable or mother board port. And i suggest mother board all connection disconnect and only HDD connect and open bios and search your HDD detected.

St3160827as seagate hdd is not detecting in bios , other new seagate hdd is working fine with the same connection(sata cable and power card) I have imp data in that hdd ,pls help me how to get data...

Turn your computer off.
Disconnect the power cord.
Disconnect all other disk-drives and CD/DVD drives, leaving only the "suspect" drive connected.
Restart your computer, and enter BIOS SETUP, and see if the drive is detected, and how it is connected (primary/secondary, master/slave).

Read the model-number and serial-number and manufacture-date on the disk's label,
and access Seagate's web-site, to check the warranty-status of the drive.
If the warranty is valid, Seagate will replace the drive, at minimal cost to you.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

My computer wont detect my hard drive. can seatools detect it?

Check if the BIOS is able to detect it then only you would be able to detect it using any utility. Alternatively you can check for the jumper settings also. Try making it slave.

Hard drive reported at zero bytes

see after teh utility named Partition Magic, It will solve these typoe of errors. Another cheap option is to try to format it with a vintage computes BIOS, HDD Formattion option, Not available in newer BIOS.
Tyr aldo Fdisk /mbr in the DOS PROMPT , booting with D.O.S. Ver. 6.0 Anyone remember this Operating system?
And the last option is to format the drive undel LINUX and thern get it back to Windows XP.
