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.

    was the 360 wet when you found it, like, did it rain before you found it?

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.

Ok, look at the hard disks circuit board, look for rust or something suspicious.

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

Seagate desktop expansion Xbox 360 hard drive format problem


Should work. Xbox uses FAT32, the same as Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 can all read it. When plugged into the computer can you see the disk in Disk Management?

Seagate 160GB SATA Hard Drive Installation.


Hi, Was the original 20Gb HD also a SATA or was it installed as an IDE? Try installing a fresh clean Windows rather than the restore disc. However, you will need the drivers for the SATA 160Gb and press F6 when Windows installers ask you to. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
