SOURCE: what type of hard disk

I assume you want an external enclosure for this drive. Hard drives are built to standard dimensions and have the same power and data connectors, so any enclosure designed for a 3.5-inch IDE drive would work. Here's one I've bought several of for myself and others, and it's been reliable. There are many more available from many vendors. Just be sure you get one designed for IDE drives or that will take both IDE and SATA. If you get one meant for SATA only, the connectors inside won't fit your drive. Which enclosure you finally choose will depend on which you think is best (based on price, appearance, reviews, or whatever you look for), but any one will work.

If I were you I would make sure your computer has no size barriers.. Some computer bios have
a maximum drive size that it will accept. Be sure to check this before purchasing. Of course you can always go with the same size 40GB, but your best move is to upgrade to a higher size.


Everyone has their opinion about vendors. If you ask me Drives fail just like any other device, so
get one with a good included warranty and back up your stuff. Look for speed and size and
make sure its the same I/O as your original.

MOST IMPORTANT : Verify your system can handle the size you wish to purchase

Hi, I have some troubles with my Baracuda ATA IV 20gb,so I need to download some softwear for this harddrive.Do you know weare I can find it? Thanks Allex Bulat


Hi

Hard Drive faults can rarely be repaired by downlading drivers. The drivers for almost all hard drives are already in any operating system.

Most hard drive faults are physical faults, such as bad sectors, controller board faults or shock damage.

Some apparent faults may actually be due to incorrect jumper settings. It is worth fully exploring all the jumper setting options available on this drive.

This drive is quite an old ATA drive and because hard drives work so hard spinning several thousand times per minute (yours is 7,200rpm), the older a hard drive gets the more susceptible it is to failure.

Your drive was probably manufactured in 2001 and is likely to have had a 3 year warranty when new, so it is long past its warranty period. This means that little help is now available to you from Seagate.

It is sometimes possible to download Firware Updates for certain hard drives, which can improve the performance of the drive. But Firmware Updates rarely repair hard drive errors.


You can find detailed technical information about your hard drive here:

www.seagate.com/support/disc/manuals/ata/100129212b.pdf
Available Firmware Update Information for Seagate Drives can be found here:
http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/crm/selfservice/search.jsp?DocId=207931&NewLang=en To check if any Firmware Updates are available for your drive, you need the full model number, which should be somewhere on the label (possibly ST380021A).

If firmware updates or jumper settings changes don't work, you may have to consider buying a new ATA hard drive.

I hope this helps.

I have a Seagate Barracuda ATAIV model ST340016A 40 Gig HDD. I want to put it in an external enclosed drive so that I can format and wipe the drive. I suspect it has some viruses on it that are bogging it...


You do not need a driver, I suspect the Seagate hard drive may be faulty.
Try conncting your hard drive as a Slave drive in your computer, if the BIOS does not detect the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty.

Harddrive


Hi, Looks like it will be a motherboard issue not Maxtor (ATA) and Barracuda (SATA) combination. So the question really would be if your motherboard would accept and recognize the Barracuda SATA. Post back with your motherboard details, (brand/model/version). Kind regards.
