Seagate 20GB SATA hard disk not detected

Hi. I took the hard disk out of a 360 I found in the trash, and put it in my Desktop PC using the SATA cables, (my pc has the SATA ports) and only the BIOS detects it, Win XP does not.

    Yes it was. it rained the night before

  • Cereal_Dude Jun 19, 2008

    I took a look at the circuit board, some of the pins are rusted :(

    Could this be fixed?


  • Cereal_Dude Jun 19, 2008

    Ok, Thanks.

Hold on if the bios detects it, it cant all be bad. Usually windows has trouble if the logical aspects of the drive are screwed.

    um... I wouldn't suggest trying to fix it with chemicals, but you might want to contact seagate and check their RMA section.

HP dc5100MT motherboard


Based on what I have read about the HPdc5100MT motherboard it only supports SATA hard disk. Not sure how you are able to use a 80GB IDE.

See configurations from HP at this website. All hard drives are mentioned as SATA.

Epox motherboard and SATA disk


According to the hard drive manufacturer Maxtor, motherboard host controllers using the VIA and SIS chipsets VT8237, VT8237R, VT6420, VT6421L, SIS760, SIS964 found on the ECS 755-A2 manufactured in 2003, do not support SATA 3 Gbit/s drives. To address interoperability problems, the largest hard drive manufacturer, Seagate/Maxtor, has added a user-accessible jumper-switch known as the Force 150, to switch between 150 MB/s and 300 MB/s operation.[9] Users with a SATA 1.5 Gbit/s motherboard with one of the listed chipsets should either buy an ordinary SATA 1.5 Gbit/s hard disk, buy a SATA 3 Gbit/s hard disk with the user-accessible jumper, or buy a PCI or PCI-E card to add full SATA 3 Gbit/s capability and compatibility. Western Digital uses a jumper setting called "OPT1 Enabled" to force 150 MB/s data transfer speed. OPT1 is used by putting the jumper on pins 5 & 6. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA
