SATA hard drive not recongised.


hi, sorry but i have to ask the question , why did you take the drive out of a external drive then buy a kit so as you can use it as an external drive , if its because the Seagate casing is damaged then its highly likely the drive is damaged too .

Seagate ST3500630AS SATA 500 GB hard Drive


You will have to send it to a data recovery company in order to retrive the data sounds like the circuit board failed therefore the drive is not receiving power.Usually if this board is good you would hear the drive spin up.
Good luck

It recognizes the new hard drive as a DVD drive


have you partitioned and formated it ? unless you do that to the drive it will not show up with a drive letter in windows. go into control panel, administrive tools, computer management, disk management - there you should see all your drives and you can partiton, format, assign or reassign drive letters to them. hope this solves your problem.

Windows


I've just installed the same type of hard drive in my PC running win XP and have no problems.. do u know that you need to format the disk before it will show up with the other accessible drives?

what to do is - click start, right click on my computer and go to manage.. then double click on storage, disk management local.. and it should show up here, once you format it your all set..

No need for drivers, windows has them already, it's all generic one's the windows is familiar with..

Hope this helps!

SATA 80GB Seagate HDD


When your 80GB SATA Seagate HDD complains of bad sectors while booting, this is a sign of a failing hard drive. Today's hard drives will actually self-correct a certain amount of bad sectors before you get any kind of error message. If you are getting "bad sector" errors, this is because the drive has so many problems that it can no longer self-repair. You asked if this may have happened because you have formatted the drive many times. No, bad sectors was not caused by formatting. Your drive did not become "dead slow" because of the formatting. It became slow because your cpu now has to do much more processing to "work around" the bad sectors on the drive. You also asked if you could recover your hard drive to normal state. Please understand that once a drive shows bad sectors, it will not be long before the drive fails completely, at which point you will no longer be able to access anything at all on the drive. No, this drive cannot be recovered. Instead, you should save all the data you can from this drive, and you should do this as soon as possible, before it fails altogether.
