Question about Hitachi HDT725050VLAT80 500 GB EIDE Hard Drive
My computer is running a sata drive. I want to install the other as an ata/ide.
The drive appears in the Device Manager but not in the My Computer window.
When I checked it out via Computer Management/Storage/Disc Management, it states the drive is "dynamic, unreadable"
Can you tell me what I have done wrong, or not done?
SOURCE: HDD not recognised
HI Your Hard Drive is previously formatted and have done different partition provided by your previous machine where you took this hard drive from. Use "The Partition Magic" Software, it will help you to fix and repartition your hard drive in the new format. I have this problem before and now my hard drive can connect with any computer. The key in this issue is any hard drive goes with the original machine has been formatted and do its own partition from manufacturer so if you take it out later for use with other machine, you will need a software to completely rearrange the new partition in universal format so other computers can recognize it. This manufacturer purpose to protect your data from hacking, stealing once you take it out from the original machine. That is why when you connect it to other machine, this hard drive will not be recognized. I has this partition magic software and can make you a copy so you don't have to buy it. Just read the instruction and you can fix it for both 2.5" and 3.5" HD. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide me your mailing address, I can send the copy software to you. Regards, pingping
