First thing to try, is to plug it into a different usb port, and see if it will be detected that way. To make sure the hard drive is good, try to plug it into another known good computer. The cord could also be bad, or a solder joint could be cracked on the hard drive. The usb drivers could be failing, in which case you can go into Control Panel, Hardware, and USB ports, and right click, delete them, and restart windows to have them reloaded. Other than that, the usb hub could be faulty in the computer.
Make sure your bios is set properly if it has to be adjusted in some respect.
Here's some things to check out in this web blog about the same type problem:

Trying to install vista 32 bit on my Gateway DX 4720-03.Vista won't install because it can't see Hard drive. How do i disable ahci or sata mode in the bios or is there a work around to install Vista32.


Vista will have the drivers necessary to identify SATA/AHCI controllers, built-in by default. It would not be necessary to turn the AHCI mode 'off' or to 'ATA' mode (unless you get a 7B or inaccessible boot device BSOD). Check if your system has a RAID configuration, in which case there may be a 3rd party supplied RAID driver that you need to install first. Also, check if the HDD cables are connected properly & the HDD is detected in the BIOS (System setup screen) first.

Laptop shows only 4gb ram & 300 gb hdd


This is the limitation of a 32 bit (x86) Operating System. A 32 bit OS can detect upto 3GB RAM only.

You may either try installing the x64 Bit of XP Operating System or Vista Service Pack 1 or 2 for 32 bit Vista Operation System to resolve the issue.

After installing the SP 1 or 2 of the Vista OS in the Computer, the OS will detect 4GB RAM.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My new portable hdd is not getting detected on my xp


Your USB ports may be version 1.1

You need a USB "Y" cable.
The USB Y cable uses two USB ports on your laptop and the third plugs into the external HDD.

Check RadioShack or maybe the vendor has a USB Y cable.

This will work!

HDD not recognized whe installing fresh Windows XP!


Hi...

If your HDD will not recognized during installation you need to check if your HDD is detected. Try to look at your BIOS if it is detected. IF the HDD will not detected you need to replace the cable, try to use the other slot of your SATA or IDE ports.

Have you gone into your computers BIOS settings to make sure that your HDD is configured and that it is recognized? My room mate has a computer that just "looses" it's HDD in the BIOS and forgets that it existed. To get into your BIOS, more than likely you'll hold down the "delete" key or the f12 or f10 keys when you power up the computer and it'll ask you if you want the additional settings options, or it'll just pop into your BIOS. You'll look through it (Be careful!) and on the 2nd screen most likely you'll see options to set a boot order. You'll want to make sure that your HDD is listed in here or else the computer is not looking for it to boot from. You'll probably want to have your floppy first, and CD 2nd, and leave your HDD for 3rd for booting options. Depending which version of Vista you're installing, it may not support RAID. Microsoft only saves that for it higher end/priced OS's that the corp's are willing to pay for so they feel like they're getting their money's worth.

Hello,

Take a look here: http://blog.atola.com/restoring-factory-hard-drive-capacity/

If that does not help please write your hdd model (Usually on a sticker on top of HDD)
What size is the partition the installation detects?

Hard drive detection


You should not need a driver for it. Assuming you are using XP or Vista, the disk should be supported directly by the OS.
Have a look at external HDD troubleshooting.
