Have you partitioned and formated it ? unless you do that to the drive it will not show up with a drive letter in windows. go into control panel, administrive tools, computer management, disk management - there you should see all your drives and you can partiton, format, assign or reassign drive letters to them. hope this solves your problem.

Bios cannot read hard drive


Hi Robert,

IT could be that the Barracuda drive is formatted for boot up. I would boot up with the drive that boots, and make the Barracuda a spare drive, so you can go in and first see if has any issues as a drive,(meaning sector 0 errors, and if you can access it, then you can format it as a boot up drive, or get what data on that drive off for your friend.

Good Luck Mark

I want to replace my 80 gb hard drive with a 500gb st3500320as and I have not found a way for my My XP computer to recognise the new HDD even though after a reboot the bios says it is there. This is...


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 electrical 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 even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem

computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets

hope this helps you

New hard drive not recognized on mac pro


OK what you could do is connect up that drive to a PC and format it with NTFS, & then put it on the Apple, it should then "See" the drive.Then you can work on it via the Apple.

New sata hard drive i installed keeps saying ntl not found checked bios ok cant start up to format drive or insall opperating system any idea?


Hi mikecoombe,

The easiest way to put in a new drive is to boot to the old drive as a master then put the new drive in as a slave. Make sure that if your using all sata drives, that you specify which drive to boot to in your bios. Then Format from your OS, and load away.

Good Luck

I would suggest you go to the seagate website and download and burn out their hard drive test. run the test from boot and see if it detects a bad hard drive after it runs

bricked hard drive? Would folling this lead to a full hard drive format or just unbricking a drive like people sat it does?? Also any other ways that might help would be great to know, heres what i'm talking about! "Fixing The Drive NOTE: Commands for you to type are in red boldface. Pay attention to upper & lower case - it is important. Turn on power to the RS232-to-TTL adapter and the hard drive. After a few seconds, Press CTRL+z. You should then see a prompt like this: F3 T> If not, swap TX & RX wires. Access Level 2 (type /2): F3 T>/2 (enter) F3 2> Then spin down the (disconnected) motor: F3 2>Z (enter) Spin Down Complete Elapsed Time 0.147 msecs F3 2> Very carefully, remove the cardstock that you placed between the PCB and the drive head contacts. Carefully replace and tighten the 3 loose screws. I suggest using a small piece of masking tape to help you hold the screws while you put them back in place. Then start the motor: F3 2>U (enter) Spin Up Complete Elapsed Time 7.093 secs F3 2> Next go to Level 1 (type /1): F3 2>/1 (enter) And do a S.M.A.R.T. erase (create S.M.A.R.T. sector): F3 1>N1 (enter) Cycle power to the drive, then do partition regeneration: F3 T>m0,2,2,0,0,0,0,22 (enter) After 15-30 seconds, you should see something like: Max Wr Retries = 00, Max Rd Retries = 00, Max ECC T-Level = 14, Max Certify Rewrite Retries = 00C8 User Partition Format 10% complete, Zone 00, Pass 00, LBA 00004339, ErrCode 00000080, Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs User Partition Format Successful - Elapsed Time 0 mins 05 secs Do not turn off drive until you see this message. Once seen, drive can be turned off. Power down everything, place drive back into your computer, and confirm that it's working." Thanks.
