I have what I think is an Inoi Sata multimedia hDD ( Square aluiminum case) .I have connected it to a Windows 7 computer and has failed to be recocognised. Where do I find suitable drivers thanks


Hello,

you should not need drivers for that all, windows should be able to recognize it.

These things usually need an external power supply, first check if it is connected.

Try it with a different computer. If it works then I suggest a system restore on the other comp.
If it doesn't work (which is likely) then you should take apart the metal case, remove the HDD (which is a totally standard desktop HDD) and plug it inside the comp with the SATA port. Windows then will correct the disk errr upon turning on. If it doesn't work this way either then it's dead. If it works flawlessly, but when put back into the case it doesn't wok again then the housing is faulty.

Good luck!

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

I have an Acer Extensa 4620z, i can't load the OS, i've tried with XP and Win7 and there's an error, i tried to change the setings in BIOS, but there's not any option to change anything about the SATA or...


yes quite right.. when u start the install process I'm sure you noticed that it asked you to press F6 to install any 3rd party RAID / Sata drivers.. these can be downloaded from the manufactures web site..

what concerns me is that windows 7 Ultimate has these drivers built in!!! did u try windows 7 ultimate ???? not the OEM version that ships with systems ,, use a full version..

also DO a full format not a quick format.. when win 7 or xp instillation boots,, delete all partitions and do a full format..
if that fails u need to replace the hardrive,, A dead harddrive will give the same error!!!

While transfering a file from pc to hd computer froze. I then unpluged the drive and then pc come back to normal now the external will not get recognised


It sounds like you have a serious problem. If you cannot get the HDD to read at all and your computer will not recognize it, you have a bad "sector" of the drive.

As a metaphor:
Your drive has little "squares," each square stores information on it. Your computer will break the data down into these squares and store it in segments. When your computer freezes its because it is "confused" as to why it cannot store the data. When you remove the HDD, the computer then assumes it's to stop and resumes regular activity.

The solution:
A) Go to “My Computer” right click on the Hard Drives icon and go to “Properties,” then go to “Tools” and then to “Error Checking.” Also then “Defragment”

If that doesn’t work:
B) Try to reinstall the updated drivers on the manufactures web-site. After you have reinstalled the drivers reformat the Hard Drive. Reformat your hard drive by going into "My Computer" and right clicking the HDD and selecting "Format." Follow the prompt.

Good luck!

Computer doesn't recognize hard drive


If your hard drive is not recognize by your computer try to enter cmos set-up and see if your HDD is detected and if it is detected by your pc then you probably have error in your MBR, try to format your hdd using fdisk. If this doesn't work you maybe have a faulty HDD, try to replace with a new one to try if your HDD is really the problem, also replace your data cable (IDE/SATA) maybe that the problem. good luck with this.
