    (((now on the right side, find your new harddrive, right click on it (its most likely the drive 1)

    so right click on the 250gb hdd, create new volume, use NTFS default settings, and you may use quick format. normal format will take from 15 minutes to a hour or more.)))


    it shows it as drive 0 at the bottom on the right and all i can do is partition the drive and no mention of formatting.

Hey, congratulations on successfully installing the harddive.

Since its brand new, there is no volume in the disk (no partition and not formated)

To create a new volume and format the disk for the first time

on desktop, right click my computer icon, select manage from the menu, on the left side of the management window click on disk management

now on the right side, find your new harddrive, right click on it (its most likely the drive 1)

so right click on the 250gb hdd, create new volume, use NTFS default settings, and you may use quick format. normal format will take from 15 minutes to a hour or more.

with quick format the disk will be useable within seconds.

after this is complete you will see a new disk in my computer.

If you need more assistance let me know, I'm here to help
Also, remember to rate the solutions :-)

My Samsung 250 GB portable HDD is not recognised now. It was working for last 2 years without any problem. Recently I found my PC infected by "WIN32" & Torjan viruses. It may be the reason. But I tried...


Try connecting it to another computer.
If it does not work, then either the disk-drive has failed,
or the USB-cable is damaged,
or the USB-to-disk-drive interface inside the case has failed.

Is the SAMSUNG still under warranty? (1 year? 2 years? 3 years?)
If so, SAMSUNG will replace it, at minimal cost to you.

I Don't see USB Device in "My Computer"


Hi,

There are a few common causes of this problem.

1. Bad cabling, try a new cable and see if it shows up.
2. Bad drivers on your PC, try the device on a different PC, if it shows up, report back and we'll diagnose the PC. If it doesn't move on to # 3
3. Failed USB circuitry within the enclosure, buy a new enclosure, move the drive into the new enclosure and try again.
4. Failed drive within the enclosure. In this case you will need to either send it to a pro or work through several Do It Yourself methods to attempt a recovery.

If you wish the help of a pro, reply back with your Country, State and City and I will refer you to an appropriate facility. If you wish to continue trying to recover the data yourself let me know and we can step through several ways of attempting a recovery.

Hope this helps FixYa,

2.5'' external fell down


Sorry, but if your hard disk fell down and now isn't regognized by the computer the most possible situation is that the disk is destroyed.

I've connected my Samsung 250GB HD250HJ SATA drive (from a Linkstation) to my PC with a sata-ide adapter. It's recognised at boot time but I get the message 'primary master hard disk fail'. It isn't...


You may need to address the way that the old HDD was used in the BIOS. Meaning that if you had regular IDE drive the setting that may be in the BIOS might need to bee disabled and that could be the cause to the new SATA IDE controller you have installed as a boot device. Also if you are trying to boot from you new SATA drive you will need to install some form of and operating system on it like windows or whatever you have been using.

Sometimes it’s easier to create a disk image of the old drive and transfer it to you new SATA, using a disk image utility like Norton Ghost.

Of course I am assuming that you are using a PC and not a MAC.
