There is usually only one light on the drive, which indicates that data is being read or written when the light is light.

Replace hd with used hd.


You just do not drop in a replacement hard drive from another working computer and expect it to work. The replacement hard drive is now in a "foreign" environment and often will not work to protect the existing operating system. If you have the operating system disks you may be able to do a "repair" operation where the OS is given a chance to adjust to is new environment and install new drivers. If not, then all you can do is format the replacement unit and re install all of the software; everything is one drive is lost and you start from square one.

I have a samsung sp1203N 120gig capacity, running with a new WDC WD5000AAKS-00A7B2 500GB HD ,as the primary drive on windows 7. My problem is that my samsung drive is only reading at a 31.4 GB capacity...


On XP, it was Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management.

Upgrade the 120gb to a Dynamic disk and then extend the partition, or if there's no data on it yet, delete the 32gb and create a 120gb one.

Should not be that different under Win7. Hasn't changed much since NT4.0

Help! the green light flashes then nothing happens


The exact same thing just happened to me (WD elements 500 gig) and it's only about 10 months old. I called the customer help line (on the official website) and after they asked me what the serial number of my HD was they were going to send me a new power supply. Simple as that. They said they'd be able to send it out early next week. I'm hoping that the HD didn't get fried and it's just the power supply but what you've described is EXACTLY what is happening to mine.

Red Light


The red light came on when I plugged this drive into my laptop and was not recognized -- until I plugged in my laptop power adapter, then it showed right up! If you're on a laptop make sure you have the hard drive power plugged in as well as your laptop power.

Please solve my other problem...


Seagate/Maxtor has hard drive tools that can recertify your hard drive. Maxblast with powermax or segate tools. Recertification tests the hard drive without corrupting contents.

I would download these and test the hard drives with the manufacturers software instead of software made for generic devices.

I ran a generic diagnostic on a WD 40 gig hd, 15min into it it failed diagnostics, got an RMA from WD sent it back and I tracked results.

They had it 2 min before sending it in for repair. I downloaded their Software and tested another wd drive, 45 secs it took to detect problems, generic software took 22min.
