The possible problem is that your pc (you do not say what it is) is not able to recognize the size of the hard drive ,if this is the case ,sometimes the hard drive maker provides software to enable your system to see the hard drive.
but it is a long while since i have seen such software provided.so good luck.

hope this is of some help.

Maybe your board doesnt support a 500gb drive. try to check your motherboard model on the web and see if it supports. and if it does, try to check if drivers needed for your drive to be detected.

Why my window 8.1 keep saying when"missing operating system" when i connect my toshiba external hard drive ?


sounds like you need to set up your boot drive in your start up. If you cannot find that, then it needs to be changed in the bios. you usually need to push repeatedly the delete button or the f2 key. the screen should tll you at the bottom of the screen which key to push to go to the boot drive menu or the bios menu. Be very careful in the bios setup menu, only change the boot drive.

My hardisck no deteck in my PC


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

NO ! I would like to know if I can install a


You can put whatever size hard drive you want in your pc....typically they do not come with operating systems on them when you buy them...they are blank....you can run it as a secondary drive with the one you are already running and use it for storage....Otherwise you will have to have xp installed for you....(more money) . You can not put 600 GB of memory or ram on a pc.....most pc's take up to 4 GB of ram....If you literally mean memory than that will be whatever size hard drive you purchase...Ram is random access memory and helps determine the speed of your pc. And yes it is always worth it to upgrade a pc, depending on how old it is.

Can i use this maxtoe diamond max 21 500 gb drive for a c drive i am removing a 80 gig that is defective


If you mean remove your old 80 gb drive and replacing with the Maxtor 500 gb drive you should be able to. The Maxtor 21 series is equiped with SATA. Just make sure that your computer can run SATA. If not, I believe that there are adapters out there.

Computer will not recognize the Seagate FreeAgent Pro 500 GB


If the hard drive is new and still unformatted, you will need to format it. Confirm that it is recognized in disk management (start>control panel>administrative tools>computer management) Go to the list on the left and expand "storage." Then click disk management. You should see your drives listed. Find your seagate 500GB drive, right click on it and then click format. It will take awhile for a 500 GB drive but once it is done, the drive should be usable.

WARNING: this will delete any files on the drive, meaning that if it is not new and you have files on it already, then they will be deleted.

Help my second hard drive dont show up


Hi

Make sure it is connected properly.
Then go to Disk Management by typing "diskmgmt.msc" in the Run window.
Then check in Disk Management if there is any unassigned or any uninitialised partition there.
If you find one, right click on it and then select either "Format" or "Initialise".
