I have a 250gb seagate sata but when i put my 80gb IDE hdd it only detects in booting and in bios but after that if i open my computer i cant see my 80gb IDE Hdd and even in device manager my hard disk was...


there was wrong in the set up of jumper in your 80gb hdd. Look closely to the 80gb harddrive, in between the ide cable terminal and the power supply connector you will see 8pin terminals paired together and a jumper use to short the paired terminals. It is most likely that the jumper was configure to detect your hdd as master. If the ide cable you use for the 80gb hdd was also use for the dvd/cdrom drive then it will conflict with it if both jumper setting was set to master. See the description of jumper settings in the sticker of the hdd. Position the jumper to slave.

Reboot your system again and see if the 80gb finally appear in your system. When system boot upon detection of hdd, the primary master should be 250gb while your primary/secondary slave will be read your 80gb hard disk.

Hdd power problem


Hi!

Check your HDD with HDD monitor utility to see if it's ok. You can try this one:
http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-disk-health-monitoring-utility.htm
If your HDD has bad SMART or power controller or smth like that - then you definitely need to replace HDD.
Also issue may be caused by your PC power supply or motherboard power controller. If HDD monitor shows that your hard drive is "alive", then try to "hang" your HDD to another power cord from your PC power supply and try to connect to other IDE/SATA port on your motherboard.

Also I'd suggest you to try your HDD on any other PC.

Fantom hard drive Flashing LED - Unreadable


Hello,

As for known problems, this sounds like a failure in one of the circuit boards, either the one on the hard drive or the USB conversion board. If it is off warranty, the simplest method to test this is to transfer the drive into a new enclosure which you should be able to do at any PC shop.

If the drive works in the new drive enclosure then you're good to go. If it doesn't then you will likely need to replace it and if there is important data on the drive enlist a pro to recover the data.

Try the swap and let me know how you make out, if the results are indicating the need for a pro then reply with your Country, State and City and I will point you to an appropriate pro near you.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Hard disk is damage what can i do...?


Give it to the authorised service station and claim the warranty. They will backup your data and possibly replace with another HDD. There are many expert technicians who can retrieve data from a HDD even if its damaged.

External HDD is not working


You probably have conficker worm because it stops your pc from reading usb's or any external HDD. Or the worm might of infected your HDD since it spreads through usb and internet. Seriously you should get your PC scanned just incase. P.S. Its just a possibility.
