Hi,no your not sol
First is the drive beeing seen when you open (my computer)if not thats one problem,and is easly fixed.Just go to start and type troubleshooting open that,now looking to the left side top of that screen you'll see view all,left click that,a new window will open.look for (Hardware and Devices) and left click that,This will find and reinstall the correct driver for any connected drives,follow the directions and restart if needed.Now you should be able to get back into the drive in question,if not try booting your system from your CD rom with your windows disk in place,booting from your windows disk will load all needed win 32 drivers by default.you seem to have an idea of installing so I'll not get into how to boot from the disk hope this has helped...
Another option would be to go to http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/ and try reinstalling the drivers (I find it best to save to the desktop then install) also having the drive connected via a usb caddy,the drive must be set as a slave drive,the sticker on the drive should show the correct setting.good luck post back with your operating system for further help.

Will not recognize sata drive need to know necessary connections


There are only two connectors on a SATA drive, namely POWER and DATA.
Check that both cables are securely connected.

Try the disk-drive in some other computer.

My 7Y250MO hard drive starts clicking and after a few seconds the system locks up only fixed by powering down and restarting.


Try doing the self-test for the hard drive. It could be a sign of hard drive failure. Just boot to BIOS go under diagnostics then select Primary Hard-drive Self Test. In hp notebooks, we use f10 after turning it on to boot into bios. Ask your computer manufacturer how to boot to BIOS. If you're Hard drive passed the test you might want to try re-installing the operating system. It could be a sign of Windows crashing. If you're Hard drive failed. There you go. You have to replace the hard drive. Hope this helps.

DRIVE MAKES CLICKING SOUNDS AND EVENTUALLY CAUSES SYSTEM TO CRASH


The only thing you can do is replace the drive. You might be able to burn some data to a CD or DVD or external hard drive before the replacement, but it cannot be guaranteed.

I can't access the hard drive


You will need to initialize it from the Disk Management. To do this, right click your My Computer and choose Manage. At the left panel click on the Disk Management. The list of available drives will show on the right.

Right click on the drive and a window will popup. Select create partition (primary partition). After you've selected your partition , now you need to format the hard drive. Choose quick format. Right click again on the partition you've just created, now select "Format" and select NTFS. Click ok and it will guide you until it is finished.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

My Maxtor suddenly stopped working, no more power. I took it out of the hardcase and there's a brown stain (burned) on the SMOOTH chip. Any chance on recovering the data? Thanks


You can buy another caddy with all the electronics for the drive inside, so basically you continue to use your drive in a new caddy and no need to recover data.
I lost a drive once and now backup all my important video, etc. onto dvd as a precaution.

Master slave jumper settings on 250gb Maxline Plus II SATA


There are no master/slave settings on SATA drives because each drive has its own cable. The drive order is determined by what SATA port they are plugged into, or by the BIOS configuration.
