Try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use asoftech data recovery program to recover your files.

I used this file recovery program before, quite easy to use and works well for me.

Hey guy,
If the hard drive can't be detected,you can try this way.Put the hdd in a zip-lock bag and put it in the freezer for 2-3 hours. Then while it's still cold plug it into the computer and you may be able to view it in 'my computer'.
If it shows up in 'My Computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it,I would first try to recover the data on it with a data recovery program to avoid losing them.
Try this one called Tenorshare Data Recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage,system sabotage, virus attack,etc.
You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com
If it fails, you will have to go to a recovery office but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money and whether they can recover the data or not is not guarantee.
Good Luck!

The icon for my samsung g3 station 1.5TB hard disk does not appear, it used to show the black square with a leaf, now it shows that default unknown windows icon...i also had trouble copying some stuff from...


I had the same problem. Searched for a G3 Station image on the web and I've created an icon (*.ico file) to replace the missing one. Unfortunately windows didn't replace the missing icon withe the one I made, but at least it changed to the defaut icon for hard drives... same the OS uses forall other drives... so I guess it's ok.
Probably the reason for the missing icon is cause we deleted or moved the native files that samsung ships with the product.
Good Luck!

We have been using a 2 TB Samsung G3 Station External Hard Drive to connect to the TV through a laptop. One day it was working next day no power seems to be going through it. The light doesn't come on...


Assuming you don't hear any activity it might be the power supply that has died. Check if it's under any warrant.. if not you can always rescue the hard drive by taking it out of the enclosure and plugging it into your PC. Odds are it's a SATA drive. Either way.. taking it out of the enclosure will rule out of it's the hard drive or the components. Good luck.

My C drive says 19.5g but i have an 80g hard drive


Create another partition on it and use it to store all your files (instead in MyDocuments) it's safer that way if your OS gets destroyed by viruses.

How do i get rid of the eisa partion on my hard drive, i have an acer T180 with a 160GB HD


Not quite sure if the partion is the primary or secondary. If it is secondary and you are running Vista, go into the Admin Tool in the Control Panel, select Computer Management, select Disk Management under the Storage tab. Select the partion you want to erase from the bottem partion of the screen, right click on the partion, and choose Delete Volume.

If you are deleting the primary, you will need to use the upgrade function to get a clean deletion of the old info.

Good Luck

No internal hard disk found


Hi there.
Use the Vista CD to create the new partition, but first you have to delete the old partition first, (the 220GB partition not the 10GB one because that will be the recovery partition).
Get a calculator and work out your new partition, for example 50GB is 50x1024MB so that will be 51200MB.
When you have deleted the 220GB partition select NEW and input your newly worked out partition and carry on from there, to activate the other partition just format it.

Please post back with the results and for anymore help if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hard drive Problem


as long as your primary drive is protected with a virus software dont worry about it. Unplug your cd rom ribbon cable and interface the other infected drive to ide1 or ide 0 whichever way dont try to master slave them. Let windows see the other drive as another drive, then the software should handle the infection.

Pending on the infection you've got the partitions may or may not matter, your better off with a solid parition, less seek times to the data anyway.

SAMSUNG IDE HDD SP0411N (40GB)


Hi,

Three possible reasons:
1. Your IDE cable is defective or is not seated/plug in correctly. Try to replace or re-seat/re-insert;
2. The on-board disk management of the hard disk is corrupted/defective. There is no remedy except to replace the PCboard or the entire hard disk;
3. Your motherboard BIOS/CMOS needs to be flashed and/or something is wrong with the IDE interface.

Of the 3, # 1 is the most common.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

good luck and kind regards.
