I have an oldish computer which will not auto detect the Samsung SPO812N 80GB hard drive. Can you provide details of the no. of Cylinders/Heads etc to enable me to manually enter this information into the CMOS?

SOURCE: CMOS auto detection of samsung SP0411N HDD stops and hangs

You may have to use CS (Cable Select) jumper, unless this is an old drive where it may be on it's way out. Instead of trying auto detect, highlight primary master drive and press enter and see if it is recognised.

SOURCE: Compaq Presario will not format Samsung 80GB hard drive.

A Samsung 80GB hard drive has three different capacity options for jumper settings: "Capacity < 32GB", "Capacity > 32GB", and "> 32GB with Capacity Limit". While installing Windows XP, I received an error on a black screen that said NTFS file missing or corrupt, using all the options, and using master and cable select jumper settings for each option, with the same result. I finally swapped out the hard drive and was able to install Windows XP, using a Seagate hard drive with no capacity options.

SOURCE: can i make my 80GB hard drive to 100GB?

This is not possible, 80Gb is 80Gb and 100gb is 100gb, but I am afraid, even if you like to replace, you'll not be able to get 100gb since it's no a standard Hard disk capacity. If you are trying to upgrade, then you can find 120gb, 160gb, 250gb, 320gb etc... Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

My pc don't detect hdd


Hi harbinderkur. If you have data on the hard drive, DO NOT try to use any software to test it, because it WILL stress your hard drive and probably you are going to loose your chances of getting it back.
Try using other computers, if you have a Windows PC try a MAC by getting an external hard drive enclosure and connect it via USB (believe me it works and also the other way around). Im talking about if you dont hear any clicks when starting the hard drive. In case you DO hear clicks (the famous click of death) then could be several things, the System Area, or the logicboard, the heads, the platters, etc (things you cant fix yourself) but please... in case your BIOS does recognize the hard drive, dont use any test software because you might make things worse. Like I said try other OS first. I hope this helps and please don't forget to rate and write positive feedback for our free support today. Thank you :D

My system wont recognize my fantom drive, worked a week ago


Goto your CMOS. put your hard drive settings on Auto detect or if you know the correct cylinders etc... you can manually put it in your self. then save and reboot your computer. If your settings are correct in CMOS then try to FDISK your hard drive. Also use the Fdisk /mbr command.

What numbers off the HD do I use to set up the CMOS on the mother board under "User" hard drive?


Use automatic detection if it is available; if not use the following:

Size: Usually set automatically depending on the settings for heads, sectors, and cylinders.


Cylinders: The number of cylinders on hard disk. Should be written on drive.


Heads: Number of heads. Should be written on drive.


Write precompensation: Not much used on modern drives. It was used to accomodate drives that had the same number of sectors per track, including both the inner and outer tracks. On SCSI drives

, set this to -1. On IDE drives, it is not necessary to worry about it as it will be determined automatically.


Landing zone: Used for drives that don’t have auto-parking. All modern drives do, so just set to 0.


Sector: Number of sectors per track. It’s often 17 for MFM drives, and 26 for RLL drives.

The hard drive you are using is either broken or corrupt. Purchase a new hard drive. Unfortunatly the data cannot be recovered.

Samsung Pleomax SAM MD-205 driver?


It took me a lot of digging to try and find a driver download. You can try the UHD25-80GB driver (this is for Windows 98, but you can try to see if it fixes the problem): http://www.samsungpleomax.com/sup_03_01.asp?page=2&fcate=Driver+download&scate=Storage+Media&tcate=HDD&scateg=Storage%20Media&tcateg=HDD. Direct link to zip file: http://www.samsungpleomax.com/sup/cs/HDD-driver-2500-80GB%20DRIVER.zip

Also, specs indicate that you need USB 2.0 or 1.1. I had problems connecting via a 4-port hub (that was supposed to support USB 2.0) so ended up connecting directly via my computer USB ("Enhanced" = 2.0) slot, which seemed to work fine.

Probably the controller card (built into the mother board) so you might be out of luck..
couple of possibilities, sometimes you can add the hard drive details into bios manually, the other is, do you have the motherboard software? Loading the correct drivers might help.

Quantium 10.2 gb fireball CX10A011 specs. ie sectors, mode, etc.


The specifications to enter the information manually, are on top of the harddrive. Kind of hard to discern, huh? That's because harddrive sizes from 6.4GB through 20.4GB are listed on top.
C/H/S = Cylinders/Heads/Sectors
The Quantum Fireball CX10A011 hardrive is a 10.2GB harddrive.
You will see -> C/H/S....10.2 - 16383/16/63 on top.

That is ,
16,383 Cylinders
16 Heads
63 Sectors

As for the 40GB model, it should be similar. If not, come back and post.

Using as startup disk


Hi,

If you used Acronis, you need to clone the 30Gb and not backup. In doing so, the booting information is likewise copied to the 80Gb, whereas back up is simply copying contents (that you specified) hence will not boot and not be active.

Pls remember that by cloning, Acronis would erase the partition (and contents) of the 80Gb. At certain settings, it would also split the 80Gb into 2 partitions; 30Gb & 50Gb. Further, verify that the 80Gb is "Set Active" and partitioned as a Primary and not Logical.

As to your other concern of installing, in some instances, some not so recent motherboards' BIOS/CMOS will not recognize the 80Gb. Other than that, you were doing it correct; new 80Gb as primary/master with jumper to the pins nearest the IDE cable, any other device (CD ROM or another HD) should be set as primary/slave (SL). Additionally, pls verify that your motherboard auto-detected your new 80Gb as your primary boot media (settings in your CMOS/BIOS).

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
