What are the correct jumper settings for my hard drive in an e-machine T-6520 with windows home ed. XP2005

cooperbill78 these are the jumper settings for a Seagate Barracuda ATA harddrive,

As you can see the jumper should be on Pins 7 and 8.

Make sure the harddrive is plugged into the END of the flat ribbon data cable.

Pin 1 goes toward the power connection.

Some flat ribbon data cable's connectors have a Locating Lug on one side. A square protrusion, or two ribs.
This lug lines up with a cutout in the circuit board on the back of the harddrive.

If no Locating Lug is present, and/or no Locating Notch in the harddrive, make sure Pin 1 is towards the power connection on the harddrive.

On one side of the flat ribbon data cable is a faint red stripe. (Sometimes hard to see)
This red stripe is on the same side as Pin 1.

When installing the flat ribbon data cable, ensure that the red stripe on the cable, faces the power connection on the harddrive.

My lacie hard drive 200GB several years old, I turn on and just get a repeating click sound, as though something's turning but can't quite connect. is there anything I can do to get it working at least...

Last time I saw this problem the harddrive was accessible, but not within Windows. I had to resort to booting into MSDOS at a lower level. The harddrive failed and the portion of the drive that had the problem was visible, but inaccessible. I was able to recover everything but the most accessed portion of the drive which happened to be what I was needing. The client then was required to send the drive to Silicon Valley to which it was taken apart in a clean room and the data was extracted for a price of $3500.

221 GB Free on MyBook - Error states not enough space for backup

It may be due to the file system.  If formated as FAT32 files larger than 4gb may not transfer.  Try reformatting as NTFS to fix the problem.

Seek rate problem in Seagate 200 GB

Hey, I recommend you test the harddrive with seagates own tools.

I recommend the dos version.

Also try active smart

I would recommend backing up all the data from the drive, and then if the drive still has problems You should send it for warranty repairs. Shouldnt cost a thing.

You can also take it to a local pc repair shop to get all the data copyed and then sent to warranty service if nessasary it will cost thought if you do it via a shop.
