20 Most Recent Fujitsu MHV2080AT (MHV2080AT50PK) 80 GB Hard Drive Questions & Answers

  1. Serial ATA:  If you have a 3.0 Gbit/sec SATA drive that is not being detected by your 1.5Gb/sec SATA controller, or it causes your system to lock up when connected to a 1.5 Gbit/sec SATA controller, you may need to jumper your 3.0 Gbit/sec SATA drive to the slower speed of 1.5 Gbit/sec for the system to recognize it properly. For further information on changing the jumper setting to slow down your SATA drive's transfer rate, please see Document ID: 193775

    ATA:  It is recommended that all Seagate ATA hard disks supporting the Cable Select jumper option be configured as Cable Select. If your computer system was built prior to October 1998 and does not support UDMA 66 or greater you will be required to use the Master/Slave jumper settings.

    When using Cable Select jumper settings on your ATA drive, all devices connected to the UDMA cable must also use the Cable Select setting. The cable decides master/slave device detection when the cable select jumper settings are used. Please consult Document ID: 196299 for further instructions. 

  2. Faulty Hard Drive

    If you have completed the above checks and procedures and the drive is still not properly detected, please attempt to use Seatools for DOS (see the tutorial here) to test the drive.  If SeaTools does not detect the drive after the steps followed above, or an error code that signifies drive failure displays, please proceed to the our Warranty Services page to begin a warranty replacement order.

Right click MyComputer and select Manage. Look for Storage on the right and select Disk Management. Find your drive and format the partition by right clicking it and selecting Format. Use NTSF, default allocation size then give the drive a letter or name. After that it should show up in MyComputer.

This drive is an IDE/ATA hard drive.
To use this as an external hard drive, I suggest you purchase an USB hard drive adapter case (with an USB cable) and install the hard drive into this case.
When you plug this adapter into the USB port of a computer, the computer will see this as an external hard drive.

You could re-solder the USB 2 socket, or buy a laptop ide to normal ide adaptor (or an empty laptop drive caddy) and plug it in that way.

Try setting it as a slave

Fujitsu... | Answered on Mar 01, 2010

Your laptop uses a 2.5" EIDE hard drive. It is better that you get it from toshiba itself coz their products are relatively inexpensive than some of the other brands. However if you want to get it online
If you want to replace it yourself
Follow upto step 10 and once you remove the keyboard you will see the hard drive smiling at you :)

Let me know if you need more help.

Fujitsu... | Answered on Feb 02, 2010

The adapter has both interfaces on it...that is, it will plug into an EIDE interface or the SATA interface. The other end is a USB connection for plugging in to the computer, this way the computer treats the drive as an external. They sell for around 20 bucks.

backup ur data and try reinstalling operating system

Fujitsu... | Answered on Sep 12, 2009

Try removing the battery entirely, and see if it will power up with just the power cable. If so, it means that your battery is causing the problem. If not, it's possible the battery is good, but the power cable has gone bad. Usually there is a "brick" in the center of the cable, make sure it is fully plugged into and connected to the cable that leads to the wall socket. In many cases that brick has a green light on it - does your's have the light and if so, is it lit up when it's plugged in?

If you?re getting odd noises coming from the hard drive you may be suffering from read errors. Windows has a utility called chkdsk that can test the hard drive readability and perform repairs in some cases. -Click on Start, then Run. -In the Open field enter ?chkdsk /f /r? and click the OK button. -You will be prompted by and error that chkdsk cannot run but will ask if you want to schedule it to run the next time the system restarts. Enter ?Y? . -Restart your computer, -Chkdsk should run after your system reboots. It will check the integrity of your hard drive and ?repair? any spots on your hard drive it can?t read. Actually what it does is move the data in the spots it can?t read and then marks the spot so that Windows does not use them in the future. The process should take a couple of hours, depending on how much information is stored on it. Let us know what you find and don?t forget to rate this posting.

ITunes will not allow you to burn purchased songs to CD/DVD, use a different program--but convert them to another format first--everything can be found for free on the internet.
