You pretty much are (for lack of a better word) screwed, without all of the pins contacting the cable, it wont be recognized by the CPU. my best suggestion, is to take it to a data recovery shop, and see if they can recover any of the stuff on it. [WARNING] not the cheapest thing to do, but worth it if you have some valuable information on the drive.

I have a 4 channel Sunluxy H.264 Network DVR, I have fitted a 300gb HDD but although the system is working and I get the 4 cameras on screen the message I keep getting on boot up is HDD not found


Guys this one stumped me for some time, here is my solution that worked like a dream

1. plug the hard drive you are using into a pc and check the hard drive is recognise and works.
2. Delete all partitions
3. ensure it has a 8 bit cache buffer!! This is the most important one. That means the system only supports older hard drives. I got 2 second hand ones from the local pc store for $50. See the list of hard drives that are know to work below.

FYI for some reason the person I bought this off online "Ebay" had no idea how to support and I could not get support from their web site as they email they give just bounces back.

Cheers.

An ide 120G WD hard drive will not start up and is not recognized in the CMOS. Tried changing power connector to drive and drive cable. Drive appears dead. never made a sound.


If it appears dead, then it probably is. If it is warrantied, return or replace. If not,there are some pretty good prices on ebay. Good Luck.

I WANT TO OPEN THE LACIE 500 GB HDD AND USE THE HDD IN MY DESK TOP


Go for it. There's a chance the internal drive will be PATA (IDE) but odds are good it's a SATA drive with standard connections.

Make sure your PC has connections for SATA drives, and you'll need to buy a SATA cable since the one in the LaCIE case won't connect from your drive to your motherboard.

Seagate 750GB usb HDD asks to format,when opening by double click


The disk is either damaged or the USB interface is damaged.
1) You could try opening the external case and connect the disk to your computer directly (Using IDE/S-ATA cables)
2) Format the HD and use data recovery software/service.
