Likely the drive has failed. First check the cabling, and settings in BIOS. Is the drive being detected by BIOS during bootup? Next see if Samsung has a drive diagnostics program which can be downloaded and run. This will usually tell you what is wrong with the drive, if anything.

You can do the process of elimination- Install a known good drive in your computer, take the suspect drive and install it in a spare or a friend's machine.

If it is bad, replacement is required. Any data on it is probably toast unless you wish to employ the expensive services of a data recovery business.

My HDD does not detect its complete capacity, it works just with 7.87 gb when must be 1tb, I would please you so much if you know something about this hdd problem. Thanks!

Many, many, years ago, motherboards did not support any disk-drive larger than 8GB.

Is this the first time that you have tried connecting your 1000GB disk-drive to your computer?

My 40gb disk drive show error in system boot process, but after some time available in system bios. i was installed xpsp2 just 2 day ago and today it was corrupted. what i do ? please help me.... Sandeep...

Any 40GB disk-drive is probably more than THREE years old, and thus any "warranty" for the disk has EXPIRED. So, purchase a new disk-drive, and reinstall Windows, and take a sledge-hammer to the "old" disk-drive, so that any personal data on the disk can NOT be accessed.

Sorry, but your disk-drive has stopped working (compare it to writing in pen onto greasy paper, and then trying to read what you wrote -- you won't get 100% readability).

The only "good-news" is that the warranty for your disk-drive could still be valid,
meaning that Samsung will replace the disk-drive, at their cost.

My Samsung 250 GB portable HDD is not recognised now. It was working for last 2 years without any problem. Recently I found my PC infected by "WIN32" & Torjan viruses. It may be the reason. But I tried...

Try connecting it to another computer.
If it does not work, then either the disk-drive has failed,
or the USB-cable is damaged,
or the USB-to-disk-drive interface inside the case has failed.

Is the SAMSUNG still under warranty? (1 year? 2 years? 3 years?)
If so, SAMSUNG will replace it, at minimal cost to you.

For Seagate and Western Digital 160 Gb SATA 7200 rpm hard drive for notebook use, which one is better and which one have longer warranty and live longer?


You didn't really note a specific WD drive, but if they have the same capacity and RPM, they're usually quite similar in every other way (transfer speed and things like that) Any differences would be mostly un-noticeable for the average user.

Regarding how long they last, it doesn't make a difference who you go with, as these are pretty much the top 2 competitors as far as hard drives go, and neither have the upper hand over each other in this respect. There's no specific life expectancy for drives. Some go 5 years, others longer. Some croak in 2 months. A couple of factors that could contribute to that are temperature within the laptop and how heavily it's used. I have a desktop drive from 1998 that still works, although I rarely use it now.

The biggest difference you'll see between Seagate and WD is the warranty length. Seagate has recently reduced their warranty length to 3 years from 5 years for all of their products. As for Western Digital, it depends on the model. It'll be either a 5 year or a 3 year.

Hope this helps :)
