Hello

Do you have a partition on the drive?
If so, then you can try this, it worked for me.

Go to:
Start
Control Panel
Administrative tools
Computer Management
Storage
Disc Management

Now you should see your drive in the schematic below, right click on it and choose to assign new drive letter and paths.If there is no drive letter assigned to the drive, assign on, otherwise just choose the option to change the drive letter.

Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

Windows xp installion does not see my hard drive on Panasonic CF-74


Just a thought but are you using XP Pro SP2 or SP3?

In my experience, only XP Service Pack 3 will see your
Hard Disk Drive, not XP Service Pack 2.

Good Luck!

When i connect my drive to my pc using windows xp in show Found new hardware searches for drivers and completes the search. but when i go to my computer it does not show up


Windows XP can only see up to 120GB. If you can partition the drive in 4 X120GB and 20GB XP will see five drives. If you need to use the full 500GB, you will need to upgrade to XP with SP3 or Windows 7

Xp service pack 3 key


Hi,

There is no "key" for SP3, its just an update.

Just click on the start menu and perform a Windows/Microsoft Update to install SP3 and then perform another update to update SP3.

Most likely there is another device that has the drive letter that the USB drive wants to use already assigned to it. The link below will show you how to change the drive letter in Computer Management.

I havea seagate 500gb external hard disk, when i connect it wth the laptop the hard disk is not recognised on my laptop. i have windows xp professional installled in my laptop


Click on the link below and then click on the "Fixit" button. Windows has a patch for all external devices not recognized by PC's including HD's. This is especially an issue for those who've recently installed SP3. Best of luck with your problem.

My computer only boots successfully after a forced shutdown.


Is it possible that you have installed winxp twice? You say that you installed XP Pro sp3 was that an upgrade from xp home? if so then you will need to uninstall one or both versions of XP then install only one.. Make sure you backup any important files first though

Sabrent 5in1 USB-DSC5 doesn't recognize 2.5" WD hard drive


I have had a different problem with this product. But, I have read many postings on its problems. It seems that for certain hard drives the jumper should be set for something other than 'master', either CS or no jumper at all. This seems to be true for only certain HD's.

Hope this helps.

You have to go online and search then download the drivers for preparing SATA laptop harddrives for installation of Windows XP otherwise during installation it will tell you there is no hard drive found.
