Did you format it? The PC won't recognize it until it's formatted, which you can do via Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management, then click on Disk Management on the left side. You'll see the drive, and have the option to format it right from there.
That's the first thing to check. Let me know if you've already done that and it's still not being recognized.

How to slave the hard drive


You must go to BIOS setup and follow the steps.God bless youHowever follow this steps:

Instructions
1
Remove the screws on your computer case and slide the cover off of the machine. Notice the hard drive bays in the front of the machine. The existing hard drive is installed in one of these bays.


2
Use the tweezers to set the jumper pins to "Slave" mode. The jumper pins are white connectors located on the back of the hard drive. Above the jumper pin section on the hard drive is the schema to set the drive to "Slave."




3
Insert the hard drive into the computer case bay underneath the existing drive. Screw in the drive and mount it to the case using the screws included with the hard drive packaging.


4
Connect the hard drive cable from the main hard drive to the secondary slave drive. There are two connectors on the hard drive cable. The very end of it is inserted into the main hard drive. The middle connection is used for the slave drive. Insert this secondary, middle connector into your newly installed drive.


5
Insert one of the power supply cables into the back of the hard drive. This supplies electrical power to the device.


6
Replace the case cover back onto the machine. Ensure you replace the screws to properly fasten it to the computer case.

Hi I want change the hard drive on my desktop from 40 gigabytes to another one of 160 gigabytes or more. How can I save and keep all of my information and programs from my original hard drive to my new...


These computers will accept a second hard drive, (Master = C Drive & Slave = D Drive)

The easiest solution is just to install another hard drive which will then become the slave drive.

You can then transfer all your personal information onto this drive using windows explorer while leaving the bootup, operating system and any exisitng software on the exisitng drive. Any new software can then also be installed on the new slave drive.

All cables (IDE & Power) will already be within the computer but you may need to enter the BIOS at startup and select Auto Detect for the slave drive. You must also ensure that the new drive you install has the correct jumper setting i.e. Cable Select.

How to install hitachi cdr-7930 on my dell dimension 4100 window xp home edition it doesent computer fails to boot with it hooked up


If this is a IDE drive...You may have the data cable connected the wrong way around. Do you only have one hard drive installed..? If you have and you are connecting this drive on the same data cable as your hard drive, you need to set the hard drive to "slave present" or "Master" and the dvd drive to "slave" If this is a SATA drive, you do not need to do this and you may have a faulty drive.. On the rear panel of the drives (where the cables plug in) is a jumper pin. Now either marked on the case or even on the drive label are the meaning of these pins. There are usually four sets of two pins laid out vertically. You need to put the little black jumper onto the pins marked "slave" on the dvd drive and "slave present" or "Master" on the hard drive if they are both on the same data cable. you can also set both drives to "cable select" but you then have to use the correct connector on the data cable for each drive. try the slave and master settings first, if you have no luck, message me again..

Slave jumper settings for a 2.5 Hitachi DK23DA-20F hard drive


Most hard drives I've come across have tiny little letters on the PCB next to the jumpers that say MA SL CS which are for master, slave, and cable select. If that doesn't work, go to Hitachi's website and search their support section. There is a diagram of the jumpers for that drive out there somewhere. Good luck!

Hitachi HDP725032GLAT80 hard drive


I am guessing you have not partitioned the drive yet. If you are using XP do this:

Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative tools > Computer Management.

Alternatively, right click My computer and select Manage.

Near the bottom on the left is Disk Management. Click on and view your drives on the right.

If you can see your new drive there, right click on it and partition it. Next format it and you should be good to go.

Please rate this solution.
