If all the conectors are fitted correctly and you still get problems then i would just return it under warranty.
If you have, or can get a spare sata cable it may be worth a try.

As the error says, the 3rd slave hard disk (which one depends on how you have connected them - most likely the Samsung) isn't responding in a timely manner to the commands coming from the southbridge. Because of the miscommunication, the master disk on the same cable (the Hitachi) can also fail the recognition, even if there is nothing wrong with it.
This is a hardware defect: that disk is dying and there is nothing you can do to fix it. Just take out all your information out of it and remove it from the pc permanently

Ihave a 1.5tb that I have not used in months. I plugged it in and all I get is beeping noises. The green light is on in front and the unit feels warm to the touch. Any solutions?


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM is securely seated

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
make sure the lead/s that attach to this drive have a secure seating and are not bad/faulty the light on only tells that its getting power it might not be getting enough power you might test the lead/s or
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
hope this helps

500 gb portable harddisk not detected in my computer


Hi,

You most likely require a driver for your hard disk to be able to communicate with your computer. This driver may sometimes install when you connect your hard drive to your computer or the drivers may come in a CD with your hard drive. Please check whether you have a CD with the drivers that came with your hard drive. If not please comment

Goodluck!

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.
