You should make sure that drive is detected in BIOS and jumper settings are correct.

Why does my new 500gb lacie setup say 375.7 MB, Zero free?


Hi Anon
I think this is the setup disk, your 500gb disk will have have hundreds of gigabytes of free space, remember that 375.7 MB is roughly a third of 1 gigabyte.

I bought today a lacie hard disk 500GB and instead of 500GB has only 9.99 MB space.What's the problem?


Sounds like your have a 9.99mb partition on your drive with the rest being free space.

If you are running windows goto the Computer Management program and check under storage> disk management to see if your 500gb drive is there. if it is delete the existing partitions and reformat the entire disk to NTFS

Im want to change my hard drive cause the one thats in the laptop now has 6495 mb


There are a few different options available.
You can purchase a new hard drive to install inside the notebook, or you could purchase an external hard drive and move documents, music, movies, etc to it from the notebook. Purchasing a new hard drive for the laptop may entail reinstalling your OS then reinstalling all of your programs. This can be a long and tedious task.

When you say the notebook has 6495MB, do you mean it has 6495MB of free space? Have you tried running disk cleanup and defragmenting the hard drive? Those two maintenance tasks may free a lot of space. 6.3GB is not what I would consider low disk though.

I'm trying to install MAC OS 10.6.6, but it keeps on failing. It says it can't install. The new internal harddrive is a Samsung Hm500jj 500gb,harddrive. Please help?


Be sure to use the OS installation disks that came with your system initially.
  1. You want to insert the CD or DVD that came with your computer
  2. When you get to the first screen, look for the Utility dropdown menu at the top
  3. Select erase and target the new Hard Drive
  4. Select HFS+ as the file system and check the box for OS 9 drivers if you need them
  5. Wait for a few seconds while the new drive is formatted
  6. Then select this disk for installation in the wizard and install the Operating System

If you're using the original XP version it wasn't able to format the correct size of the hard drives. You need to find a version with Service Pack 2 and boot off that CD in order to format the correct size of the drives. You could also boot off a Vista installation CD and format the correct size.

Dell Vostro 200 desktop with Windows XP is not able to handle two


Vista doesn't generally like to be installed on a hard drive that big. Well, Windows, in general doesn't.

And, from the sounds of it, you didn't install Windows on your new primary 1.5TB drive, you just copied it from the 500GB drive, which won't work.

Here's what you should to, to solve this:
1) Swap out your 1.5TB drive with the 500GB drive again.
2) Swap out your secondard 1.5TB drive, with the new one.
3) Create a partition of 120GB or less on that drive
4) Install Windows on the new partition.
5) Put the other 1.5TB drive back in, as secondary.

Once that's done, you can swap out the new 1.5TB drive with your Windows partition on it, in place of the 500GB drive.

When you boot, Windows may ask you to select which operating system you want, just select Windows Vista, and you should be good to go.

I had a similar issue a few years ago, when I tried to install Windows on a 1TB drive, and couldn't get it to work. Once I partitioned a smaller space, it worked like magic.
