    My 80gb I/O Magic Hard Drive won't show up on my new vista laptop. The light is on, and it was working yesterday for some reason. I wanted to transfer files from my old dell desktop to the new laptop using this and now it doesn't work! If you have any solutions that would be great.

Ok is this on ur startup? (POST) does it say no HDD detected?
if so check the following:

ur HDDis set to master. therefore the little clip on the back and to the right is set over the master pins, this is diff, depending on what HDD it is, look on the top of the HDD it will say... also make sure if u are using ID-0 cables that u have it in the master plug, (the end one) also check to see if the cable is securely connected to the computer on the motherboard (i advise u to use a static grounding device btw)

then boot the computer and enter the BIOS. you click delete when u computer is booting up then check to see that the HDD is set as the main boot device, then cd the floppy.

please ask more if u r stuck.

By startup fails to see IDE 0 and IDE 2 , says no channel 0 and channel 1. Is it possible that the cmos battery is empty?


Once your powered on the CMOS battery is no longer an issue. If it isn't reading the IDE or SATA channels it could be because they are not set in the BIOS. Check your BIOS setting and double check your cable connections. You also need to make sure, for IDE devices, that one of the drives is set to Master and the other to Slave otherwise they confuse the board and cancel each other out.

Hardisk not detected


Is this the only HD in your system? If so, make sure the jumper on the drive is set to Master. Also make sure you use the Primary IDE controller. Make sure the IDE controller is enabled in the BIOS also.
