Can i replace 80 gb hd with 500 gb harddrive?


Of course. Get a transfer cable to move the 80 g data to the 500g then remove the 80 gig and plug the cable from the 80 g into the 500g.

Hi there , i have an acer travelmate 6592 laptop , the original 80 gig hard drive crashed , and i dont have the recovery disc , the hidden partition wont re install either , i have bought a new 320 gig...


You cannot get the full 320Gb capacity because the BIOS can only support a maximum of 127Gb.
You only hope is a BIOS firmware upgrade that can support 320Gb. Check out the Acer WEB site to see if a BIOS upgrade will solve your problem.
OTHERWISE
Install a 127Gb hard drive in your Acer and put the 320Gb hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive because it is not affected by the BIOS limitation.

Installed 500 gig drive with Windows XP. Computer only recognizes it as 127 gig.


You need to go to your computer manufacturers support-driver site and look your model up, then put in your operating system and search for drivers. In the drivers column, you need to find the download for an updated BIOS. Download this file and run its self-executable program and flash your systems BIOS. The new BIOS will allow your system to see large hard drives...right now your system has a limit of 132 GB.

Seagate free agent pro 500 gig external hard drive NOT RECOGNIZED


You better check with the Seagate people. This seems to be a problem with the casing. And since you're under warranty, you can get a replacement.

Verbatim 500 gig hard drive not reading


Hi,

Clicking is generally a bad sign as it indicates the harddrive is seeking over and over not getting a read of the pallets (think arm on a record player swinging back and forth with no needle).

Good news is if it's just the control cicuitry the drive can usually be recovered for under $500. If the failure is internal rates can range from $700-$5000 depending on the level and type of damage.

If you think you would want to try either of these methods get back to me and I can recommend appropriate service providers for either.

Sorry it's not better news,


Chris

Harddrive not detecting


hi there

the space is still there its just has not been partictioned. Goto diskmanager and you will see the other 60 gig that has not been partictioned, use windows to create a logical drive then format it then you will see the other 60 gig.

good luck
