The SATA hard drive has two cables, one for power and the other is a data cable.
There are no jumpers on a SATA hard drive to configure as a Master or Slave. this is done by configuring the SATA controller.

Hitachi Deskstar causes a Power Error on my Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3


test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions, SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?

make sure the CPU central processing unit has thermal grease and a dust free secure seating


even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly


could be a memory dump you might have to many programs running at one time putting to much stress on the CPU not having enough ram will do this

might be getting to hot make sure the CPU has a dust free secure seating and has THERMAL paste

if you right click in the bottom toolbar select task manager applications you will see whats running also processes you will see whats ticking over if you see something running that should not be select end now you might even uninstall that program and some unnecessary programs


check your computer ram and cmos battery to make sure they are securely seated and the battery has plenty of charge

some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


hope it helps

Hi, I have problem here. I just bought Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000.C. It works fine at first, but one day latter some clicking noise appear. It detected in BIOS, but then make my Windows take a very long time...


The short answer is the drive is having trouble calibrating itself, and should be sent back under warranty for replacement.
There are things you could try to recover the unit, but why risk voiding the warranty only to wind up with a questionable drive afterward?

I have a Deskstar 80GB hard drive and I am adding another drive to the computer. How do I set the Deskstar to the Master. I'm not sure what the pin settings should be?


If you have the EIDE cables on your PC, it is easy. Your drives need to have their jumpers in the CBL SEL (cable select) positions (identified on the case on the sticker) and then you simply connect your Deskstar to the Master connector, and your other drive to the Slave connector.

Hi there, i purchased a Hitachi Deskstar model: HDT722516DLAT80, it has alot of old photos from when my nephew was a baby and it used to work perfectly fine, then one day it stopped appearing in...


I feel for you! It's awful losing your photos. You need to find someone with a caddy or Pata or Sata to USB adapter. Your particular drive could be either as that model is available in Pata or Sata, HDT722525DLAT80 or HDT722516DLAT8 are Parallel ATA HDT722525DLA380 or HDT722516DLA380 are Serial ATA, so I don't know which you have
mount the drive on the appropriate adapter or caddy. If you can recognise the drive it may be that your partition and files will be visible, if you can recognise some sort of partition but your files are not there you can then run data recovery software on the drive to try to get your files back. I know this sounds crude but it may well be that the drive is stuck, and a brief mechanical tap as you connect the drive to the power can sometimes free it up long enough to get the files off. Try to ascertain if it's spinning, only try the mechanical shock if it isn't spinning after connection to the power look here http://free-backup.info/data-recovery-software.htm for data recovery software or just google free data recovery software. Sorry I can't be of more help.
