Some usb drives - i.e pen drives - bring up the same message when they are inserted into a usb port. Windows usually installs the necessary software from within your computer. Other pen-drives are plug and play. Much depends on the operating system you have and the age of the usb pen.
It's probably just a question of getting updated drivers for your desktop hard drive. Right-click on the 'my computer' icon. Choose 'properties' Then choose 'device manager' or 'hardware'. Locate where your desktop hard drive is listed and open it. Then choose 'update driver'. Your computer should then search itself for updated drivers (which it won't find..) but it should also ask you if it can access the internet to search for drivers.
Alternatively, go to a website where you can download drivers yourself. Try
Be aware that your desktop hard drive is now quite old. It won't last forever .. If you've got important stuff on it consider buying a new desktop hard drive and transferring everything to the new one.

External Hard disk is not detecting on my desktop PC

Try a different usb port. Maybe a 1TB external hd is too big for your old computer to recognize. Old computers cannot handle a drive that large.

Combining two partially full hard drives

Yes, your plan is feasible.

However, any 20GB disk-drive has a warranty that expired *YEARS* ago. So, that disk could "crash" at any time.

So, consider buying a brand-new PATA disk-drive, which comes with a 3-year warranty, temporarily disconnecting the "old" drive, connecting the "new" drive, installing Windows onto it, and then making your "current" disk-drive into a "slave" disk-drive. Reconnect the "old" drive, and copy all your "data" from the "old" disk to the "new" disk.

Note that if you buy a SEAGATE/MAXTOR disk-drive, their MAXBLAST software can automatically copy "everything" from the "old" disk to the "new" disk, and will expand the partition from 20GB to the maximum size of the new disk. Very slick!
Then, disconnect the "old" drive, and boot from the "new" drive.

Format Error


Most "Format Error" messages are generated because of hardware fault. This unfortunately would mean that your ST3160021A is no longer usable.

Alternately, you can try temporarily installing it to a 2nd PC and perform disk utilities on the said HD. Things you can try are partitioning or deleting existing partition, formatting and scanning to check for any bad sectors. You can install the ST3160021A as a primary slave, secondary master or even using an external USB to IDE/SATA adapter such as a VANTEC CB-ISATAU2 SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter.

Once you have verified that no sectors are damaged and that the HD checks out, you can reinstall in the original PC and proceed with Windows installation. If on the other hand errors do occur even with using the 2nd PC, you have confirmed that indeed the HD is defective and would require a replacement.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Slave Drive not recog in my computer but it is disk management with no drive letter

A quick thing to try Is
remove the 80gb from ide cable and power plug and set the 20gb back as master.
boot into windows from 20gb 1 time ,
then shut down hook the 20gb as a slave and the 80 back up as master
Allow windows to find new hardware , "watch closely down by clock ". It will tell you when windows has finished and will say you might need to reboot before new hardware will work properly
After rebooting Both should show inside My computer
Good Luck I hope this helps
