I have a desktop tower that does not have a hard drive. How do I select the right hard drive? Whp should i let inistall it?

There are two types of connections for disks. The large gray cable is eide and the smaller round cable is SATA.
As long as you buy the correct connection type, it will work with your system. You will need to reload the software onto the new drive.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

I using external CASE and connected in USB port.. but its detcting but it not shown in my computer.. i need anwswer plz.. is any JUMPER to place?

SATA drives do not have any jumpers.
If you were the one who mounted the EIDE drive into the external-case, be sure to set the jumper to "master" (not "slave", and not "cable-select").

Try connecting the external case to a different computer, to see if the unit works at all.

Remove the disk-drive from the case, and connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if it can be detected at all, when _not_ using the USB-to-Disk-Drive adapter.

Ive built my first pc and all went well until the message no hard drive detected comes on all parts are new so any help would be great in fixing this thanks dave

Verify that the hard disk is connected on both data and power cables and is receiving power (it hums at startup); also that the proper EIDE or SATA slot on the motherboard is used, and properly jumpered (e.g. a SATA 2 disk on a SATA 1 configured port is likely to malfunction).

Check that the BIOS is configured to autodetect the hard disk type, and is using the appropriate adapter (EIDE or SATA port), without RAID options or such.

In a pinch, try also ignoring the motherboard labels (e.g., plug the hard disk on the fourth SATA port instead of the first -- the mobo numbering is not always the "logical" one, even if it usually should be.

My power source on one of my 500GB external hard drives seems to have malfunctioned. I am told that I can switch the faulty hard drive to my other and recover my data. I opened it up but have no idea what...

I assume you have a RAID 1 or "safe" configuration, i.e., two 500 GB hard disks which give you a total of 500 GB "safe" data. If you have a RAID 0 configuration (two 500 GB disks for a total of 1000 GB "fast" data), half of your data is now inaccessible and you'll need to ask a data recovery firm; I'd advise against trying to do it yourself.

With RAID 1 configurations, it's all much, much easier and safer.

The following does not work with "ALL" RAID 1 units; but it does work with most of them!

You need an external USB enclosure (not RAID), single disk, compatible with your existing disk. There are also "open air" connectors such as one from Kraun which accommodates both SATA and EIDE drives, and comes with an external power source, and which I warmly recommend (can be a lifesaver).

Connect the hard disk to the device's USB cable, connect the USB to your PC, and finally connect the power source. On some computers you need to first connect the power source to the drive, and connect the computer to the contraption last.

At this point there are two possibilities. One (rare): the RAID1 enclosure employed a partitioning/filesystem scheme which your PC does not support (e.g., HFS or something). You may be able to "see" the hard disk from a computer which "speaks" that filesystem: a Mac, or maybe a Linux computer.

Two (most common): the manufacturer used the simpler and cheaper and faster way, which is to split the EIDE signal and add very little circuitry to countersplit the drive controls. So the disk content is directly compatible with your PC. Also, the partitioning and format are the PC's native ones to save time and resources on data format conversion. You will hear the tingling sound of a hard disk being recognized, and all your data will be there.

Read EXTRA CAREFULLY your RAID1 manual for how to replace a broken disk: you want the GOOD disk to be copied onto the new, empty one, and not vice versa! If in doubt, buy two new disks and replace BOTH of them in the RAID1 enclosure. Then copy the data from the old, surviving disk onto the two brand-new, maybe bigger and faster ones.

Hope this helps, let me know how it goes.

How to install secind sata hard drive

It all depends on how many SATA ports are available on your motherboard.
Older motherboards (EIDE+SATA) usually only had one SATA port. In that case I'd advise purchasing an internal PCI SATA card (around US$ 30).
Modern motherboards (SATA + legacy EIDE) have two, four or even six SATA ports available, and you basically just have to screw the hard disk in an empty slot of the appropriate size (3.5"), and connect the cables. You may have to purchase both data and power SATA cables though. Then, format and install the drive (advice: use the one OS you use more often) from Control Panel > Administrative Tools > My Computer > Disk Management. And you're done.

How can I replace my 30GB ultra ATA EIDE HDD with

Purchase a solid state drive, 2.5" for laptops 3.5" for desktops (or use an adapter for notebook drives with a 2.5")

Connect your IDE cable (and power cable on desktops) to the drive, install Windows and you are done!

If you want to keep your existing data, get an external enclosure for the appropriate sized disk and use a program like Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image to clone the existing drive to the new one, then swap the two drives (SSD from enclosure to internal, other drive out to enclosure)

Comment if you need more information!

Windows XP SP2, Intel DG965WH mobo. Two SATA hard drives, two EIDE hard drives (WD200EB). Suddenly one day, without warning, the two EIDE drives just disappeared from the Hard Disk Drive list and files...

the problem sounds like you either lost the IDE channels on the MOBO or the chipset was updated with corrupt files.

run everest home and see if there are current updates for the northbridge chipset. if you have 2 ide channels on the board switch the primary and secondary ribbons and see if the hard drives are there. if your cdrom's are ide and after switching ribbon cables they disappear and the hard drives reappear your mobo lost an ide channel, you would need to replace the board.

Can i add a second disk?

It is up to your computer and what you already have installed, but in almost every situation you will have room for one more device ie: Hard drive or CD/DVD drive. You'll need to open the computer up and check to see if you have wide (about 3") flat grey cables connected to your existing drive or if it is a narrow (about 1/2") with similar size connector on the drive. The wide one is generally EIDE for newer computers and IDE for older. The small is SATA. This is the standard now.

Since you have a drive that is 40GB, you almost certainly are either EIDE or SATA. Once you look at the cables, you'll know which type you need to purchase.

Good luck
