At first you have to check it out, whether your hard drive is related on ide or sata. sata is the new technic used now in the recent years. ide is the old technic that comes with the wide bus cables. but sata is a small red colored cable that transfers data more faster than ide.
after that, you have to check it out the mother board settings for connecting with sata cable. because, the older pc have no more settings for sata. if it is available means, no problem to update your hard drive. or you can just go for external hard drives.

My iomega media xporter hard drive not being detected by my PC having windows 7?


Try your Iomega drive on another computer to make sure it works. if it works on another computer, then come back to your computer with windows 7 and try different usb ports. Maybe one of your usb ports is bad. If your usb ports are ok, then your drive is not compatible with windows 7.

Go to iomega's website and see if they have an update, patch or driver for Windows 7.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Iomega Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Windows 7 drivers.

I conect to my pc a new hp md1000h hdd but in my windows explorer only see: unit CD (O:) HP Loncher.exe, buno responding


Hi, your external hard drive features and automatic backup function, that is what the "launcher.exe" is for. If you don't need such a function, you go to Control Panel>Administration Tools>System Management and on the left you will find a "disk management" section. There you will find your hard drive information, and will be able to format and create partition on it, by doing so you will most likely be able to use it properly. If, instead, you need the automatic backup function of your hard drive, you can try starting the "launcher.exe" as administrator, and, if that does not work, you can contact HP support to ensure that your system is compatible with your hard drive's functions. Hope it helped, Franz

I recently bought a new hard drive to update the "tired out" model in my gateway model gt5674. i was told that i needed a SAS compatable motherboard to get this new hard drive installed. is there any...


Take the disk-drive back to the computer-store,
along with your computer, and exchange the new disk-drive for one that is compatible with your computer. Within 15 seconds of viewing the "inside" of your Gateway, they should be able to identify the correct model of disk-drive that will be compatible with your current motherboard.

Or, the more-expensive option: buy a PCI add-in card to add a 'SAS-compatible' interface (although I've never heard of such an interface!!!!) to your computer.

I have a calvary 1tb external hard drive and my computer is not recognizing it


I have found that computers 5 years and older often have problems recognizing Terabyte hard drives. If you know what motherboard you have i can look it up for you, but if it is an older computer, the motherboard likely wont support the size.

What hard drive will work with my NEC PowerMate 5250?


you would need to get the manual for this computer as the manual should state in it what type of hard drive it supports in terms of capacity and what connector types it needs ie IDE or SATA ?

Also are there any bios updates for this computers motherboard as that may resolve you not being able to attach a large capacity hard drive also in the bios see if you can enable LBA (logical block addressing ) http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/bios/modesLBA-c.html or there may be another setting in the bios which may help you.

What 2nd "Slave" hard drive should I buy to match my "Master"?


Any size hard drive should be compatible, but you should get the same connection type and bus speen if possible (ATA/133). If you get one from a different manufacturer, you'll have to install the bios update that comes with it and set the jumper to slave per the instructions that invariably come with any "add-on" hard drive.
