SOURCE: Primary Hard Disk Drive Not Found, Fixed Optical drive Not found

Reseat both the Hard Drive and Optical drive and see if they detect. If they do not, then a HDD failure is most likely. The I8000 is quirky in that if the HDD fails, the Optical drive will not work.

If reseating doesn't resolve, Replace the HDD and the optical drive should work. (Controller is a serial design and neither drive will function if the other fails)

SOURCE: usb does not recognise external hard drive

Your drive is being recognized. However, your computer only has USB 1.1 so you are being notified that USB 2.0 is faster. This message is FYI and will not prevent you from accessing the drive.

After you see that message you should see your external drive in "My Computer" If you don't see the drive you probably need to assign an available drive letter to drive.

Open Windows Help and Support.
Search for "drive letters" and find "assigning drive letters"
This will walk you through the process.

This is not a problem with the hard drive but rather with your OS installation. Please do a repair installation of the OS using the original US disks.

Good Luck!

Dell Latitude D600 with new Hitachi 30GB Drive Not Recognizing


XP install is not detecting any hard disk.
No jumpers are required for laptops, can only have one hard drive in a laptop.
Check the BIOS for the hard disk configuration, make sure that it is set on Auto (detect).
You may have a faulty hard disk, you can check it by booting up with a floppy DOS boot disk, run fdisk to see if it detects the hard disk, OR connect this hard drive to a USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port and if it detects it as an external drive the it is OK.

Hi ,
Try to cutdown power usage. unplug the floppy power and cdrom power and try again.
If it works , then it is power issue.
Use external devices that have their own power (not drawn from usb).
Also try to change the usb cable and retry.
Also try other usb ports (surely you have more than one).
If other ports work (use a usb hub).

Good luck with your issue,
David

Motherboard fails to see Hard Drive...please help


Sounds like you lost an ide channel, swap the ide cables around, primary to secondary and secondary to primary. and see if it recognizes the hard drives and not the cdrom.

I lost an IDE channel and had to install a sata hard drive or run the hard drive and cdrom on the same ribbon. If you run HD and CDROM on same ribbon set both to CS (cable select)

Drive cable connection


Its easy to connect. Try the followings:

1) See the IDE0 port on your mother board and make connection for your hardisk to this port.

2) See the IDE1 port on your mother board and make connection for your CD-ROM to this port.

3) The IDE for floppy is much smaller than IDE0 and IDE1 so you can easily figure out that port and connect your Floppy Drive to that port.

Note: If you are newbiz then keep attention when connecting the cable to the device. Please push gently and firmly. If it got set easily then you are on right way, otherwise try in other direction.

Thanks

Hd install


Enter BIOS, at start up press Delete key every couple of seconds. PC vary, some require pressing the F1 key or F2 and others reqire F10. Once in the BIOS you'll need change your boot order. Again PC's BIOS's vary. Usually Floppy is first, CDROM second and Hd 3'rd. Save Bios and restart. If you boot media is a floppy disk your PC will go there 1'st, than to the CDROM. If boot media still is not seen. Check connectors to the floppy and or CD make sure cables and power connectors are tight.
