Hmmm try to make SATA disabled from your BIOS setup. Because windows XP SP2 don't have any SATA driver, its came up with only IDE.

Try to disable your SATA it will fix your problem.

Thanks

My Free Agent Go shows up with a yellow exclamation point in "other devices" in device manager. It's not recognized anywhere else. I also notice that my computer says I have another hard drive...


> Seagate ST3200826AS

This is a Seagate 200GB SATA-interface disk-drive.
Open "My Computer", and point at the icon for 'C:' drive -- is it a 200GB disk-drive?

Double-click that "yellow exclamation" item. Click "install new driver" or "update driver".
If Windows asks permission to access the Internet to search for a new driver, allow it.

Note that the USB ports on some laptops are "weaker" (same voltage but lesser amperage) than USB ports on some desktops. So, your FreeAgent might not be getting enough power to function correctly. There exist 'Y' USB cables -- connect the 'Y' to 2 USB ports on your computer, to draw twice as much power.

Check whether you have installed the SATA Hard Drive driver using a Floppy disk. Some Computers needs SATA Hard Drive Driver before installing the Windows XP. Try using Windows XP SP2 disk.

New hard drive not reconized, motherboard drivers


I had this problem on a computer recently. This particular motherboard may be needing the driver on the Windows XP SP2 disk. Your motherboard may have been made to use Microsoft SATA drivers. Othewise, there would have been a driver disk that came with the motherboard to let it see that SATA hard drive.
If it's a new hard drive, you have to reinstall the O/S so use a disk new enough to have SP2 included.

Only 100gb of my 200gb hardrive are showing


Welcome to the wonderful world of windows disk size limitations.

What you are running into is the Windows 137GB Capacity Barrier AKA the 48-bit Logical Block Addressing Support for ATA (IDE), Serial ATA or ATAPI disc drives.

In English this means windows will only “acknowledge” between 127 and 137 Gig of a disk drive without some updates.

In most cases after he latest Service Packs are installed, any additional gigabytes will show up as unallocated space on the drive and you can create a second partition with the Windows disk management tools. Unfortunately this will mean that you have 2 partitions on the drive (if you placed your os on the drive or partitioned it before the updates were installed.).

If this is a secondary drive (in other words your OS is on a different disk drive), install all of the system updates first, you should then be able to format the entire drive as one partition.

I understand the problem you are going through and it is due to the fact that win xp sp2 install an NTFS filesytem on its hard drive and this file system was designed to be secure in a way that you don't remove disk drive or add disk drives just like that.Now the best solution would be to just reinstall you xp machine with sp2 with the hard drive already in the case.In this way xp will be able to recognize it as one of its own drives and now you will have access to it.
