How replace a larg hard drive eones 433?


Well, the computer is so old that you may not be able to upgrade the hard drive very much. If you do decide to you will need a PATA hard drive and I would suggest not going over 100GB since I don't know what operating system and service pack you are using, as older operating systems can only see so much hard drive disk space.

Do an error check. then but a new one , put it in your computer, and copy the files onto it.

Just drag and drop, to duplicate the whole thing. then switch drives, and fix the old one better, with a few partitions, too.

OK, 2 things to check. First and foremost, when you plug it into the PC does it make that nifty noise to let you know it sees a new piece of hardware?

Second, if it does, you probably need to initialize the disk. Hit the windows button, right click on computer, and select manage. Under the storage category highlight Disk management. If you see the drive there, you can right click and select initialize, or format. From there the system should see the drive.

My computer isn't recognizing my new Toshiba Roco 250 gb external hard drive


If it is new and has not worked at all, you should try using it on another computer that, if possible, has a different operating system. My first option would be to create a partition using a 3rd party partition creator.

I PLUG IN A BRAND NEW WESTINGH. HARD DRIVER 160 GB AND COMPUTER S


did you configure the 160GB hard drive as second???
there is a shorting pin between the ribbem cable and the power cable.
take a look on the hard drive, there should have adiagram shows where the shorting pin need to go to make it as secondary drive.
install the hard drive as secondary drive.
if you want the drive to be the primary. you nee to install the operating system on it.
with out operating system the machine will boot up in to DOS only, and a error message telling you the drive has no loader.
