  • Some SATA HDs have jumper for 1.5 G (SATA I) and 3 G (SATA II)mode. Try switching the jumper to 1.5 G or SATA mode (see motherboard manual).
  • Or you might need to upadte BIOS to support SATA drives.
Good Luck

Hard disk not recognized by computer hd400ld


Check connectors. Check if you installed hard disk correctly (master / slave option on the disk itself). Check BIOS if the drive is recognized. Start computer up with a valid system on a disk. Start up a disk Partition Manager. Assign a drive letter to your new drive. If necessary create partitions and format as NTFS or FAT32.

Hello,Please check the BIOS to see if the SATA ports are enabled. Older boards will disable the sata ports in the BIOS by default. To enter the BIOS, hit the DEl key as soon as you boot the PC.
If ports are enabled, then you probably have to format the drive.Heres how:1. Right-click My Computer and select Manage.
2. Under Storage, click Disk Management on the left pane.
STEP 3 - Format the device / drive / MP3 player
1. Right-click on the 1 TB drive you want to format then select Format.Windows will not recognize the drives file system and will mount it with a drive letter. ex; E:

I have a compaq witha samsung hd M/NSP2504C, S/N S09QJ1ULB30333. What are the speed and buffer specifications and which hard drive would you recommend for a compatable replacement or slave.


Hello
Samsung SP2504C is a 250 GB hard disk drive using the new SATA-300 interface, which allows a maximum theoretical transfer rate of 300 MB/s. Its main specs also include an 8 MB buffer, 7,200 rpm rotation speed and support to NCQ (Native Command Queuing). In this review we checked the performance of Samsung SP2504C installed on a motherboard using a regular SATA-150 port and also on a motherboard using the new SATA-300 port.
This very same hard disk drive is also available with a 200 GB capacity, being called SP2004C. Both belong to SpinPoint P120 series from Samsung.

This won't be the best solution for you perhaps because I'm not a windows guy, but download the gparted (just google for gparted) cd image, burn it to disk and boot it up. Use that to partition and format the drive.

You may need to address the way that the old HDD was used in the BIOS. Meaning that if you had regular IDE drive the setting that may be in the BIOS might need to bee disabled and that could be the cause to the new SATA IDE controller you have installed as a boot device. Also if you are trying to boot from you new SATA drive you will need to install some form of and operating system on it like windows or whatever you have been using.

Sometimes it’s easier to create a disk image of the old drive and transfer it to you new SATA, using a disk image utility like Norton Ghost.

Of course I am assuming that you are using a PC and not a MAC.

You could also try setting the jumper on the hard drive to "limit to 1.5gb/s".
