Hello,

I recommend Seagate Hard drive. Seagate is more durable and is compatible will most motherboards.

There are some hard drives you buy that your motherboard might not recognize. But with seagate hard drive, be rest assured that your motherboard will recognize it.

In addition, for your hard drive to last longer, make sure you always shut down your computer properly. Not shutting down computers properly damages hard drive.

I hope you know where to purchase the hard drive, if you don't, please let me know so that I can assist you further.

Regards.

What tipe of hard drive can i buy for my motherboard mcp61pm-am


Hello Hector,

your motherboard supports:
2 x Ultra DMA133/100/66 devices(IDE)
4 x Serial ATA2 devices (SATA)

IDE is somewhat antiquated at this point but is supported, I would recommend using the SATA ports instead due to higher performance. Drives of this type can be purchased at any computer shop, most big box stores and any online parts store.

What type or brand of hard drive do I have to get to install in Acer AM5641 Desktop ? I want to upgrade to a 1 tb hd.


You currently have a 320GB 7200-rpm SATA II hard drive, with 8MB cache install on a base package of your make and model of computer. I would recommend a hard drive like Samsung Spinpoint F4EG 2 TB Internal hard drive. You can find it roughly for $70.00 - $90.00 at online stores like amazon, new egg, etc.

I hope this helps.

Gooday Toshiba Experts, My 30MB hard drive HDD2181, has apparently a lot of bad sectors. I am able to format it with a recovery CD. Recovery process is aborted repeatedly. The laptop is Satellite...


With so many bad sectors preventing a format, I would recommend the purchase of a new hard drive. You will most likely need to buy an IDE 2.5" hard drive for your laptop. However, you should double check the manual to see if it uses IDE or SATA. You can get whatever size hard drive you want for it.
I wouldn't recommend any manufacturer over the others, they're all quite similar, almost some people have their own personal preferences. Just look for the correct drive type, space you want, at the price you want. Don't focus too much on the manufacture.
The new drive can be formatted with a recovery CD, however it would be easier to format with the Windows CD when you reinstall the operating system.

Yes! There is such an adapter. Look here for IDE/SATA to USB: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2329300&CatId=3770

Obviously, you don't have to buy this product or buy from Tiger Direct; this is just an example of the type of product you're looking for.

If you're comfortable working inside your desktop, then you should check out this product which is much cheaper: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2329310&CatId=3770

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

Suddenly the hard drive has died and its telling us that there is no HDD to write to so carnt record. Could someone recommend a course of action or is it simply buying a new drive? if so where is the best...


Hi,

Probably the best course of action would be to replace the hard drive but first you would need to find out what type of interface the hard drive is. For example IDE or SATA.
Look at the pictures below, these are 2 1/2ins laptop hard drives. Your hard drive will no doubt be 3 1/2 ins desktop type hard drives but the interfaces are the same.

I'm fairly certain that the drive in the recorder will be IDE but you will have to check this yourself.
The cost of a new hard drive is not that much these days but i would replace the hard drive with of the same capacity that was in the recorder. 80GB for example.
The cost will be between $40-$60.



Regards.

I have a dell desk top computer what type of hard drive i need for and what type of monitor i need


Since you've not specified whether your Dell supports SATA or IDE. Please open it and check it whether it has IDE Slots and cable or
SATA cable and slots.
bad4060.jpg429ffb6.jpgIf it supports Sata, buy SATA Hard drive otherwise buy IDE.
For a monitor just buy any, either flat screen or Cathod Ray

Primary IDE port does not work. My main hard disk drive and DVD writer drive are connected to the Secondary IDE port. If I move them to the the Primary IDE port, both the drives do not get detected at all....


Good day sir, there are several way to connect an extra IDE if the motherboard is full:
  1. Buy a PCI to IDE/SATA card. Check your local computer dealer if there is available.
  2. Buy an external USB to IDE Hard disk enclosure.
Of course, these are things to buy, but check first the CMOS setup if the Primary IDE is enabled on your PC.

How I solved the SATA IDE Dongle problem: I looked up various devices that perform this task and I found that some of them are bidirectional with a switch attached to them to internally facilitate the necessary configuration change. I plan on buying a PCI card with SATA ports to accommodate my switchover as it makes it easier to have my previous secondary drive connected so I can easily transfer files and provides a means of having more than two hard drives on my computer should I find the need in the future.
