Sounds about like a TDL4 malware infection, or perhaps the BAD BIOS infection!

Is your disk correctly partitioned?

  1. Right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Manage.
  3. Click Disk Management.
Find your newly installed disk and see if there is any unpartitioned space on it. If there is, just create a new partition, or delete the previous one so you can create the partition which will consume full size of the disk.

external HDD are plug and play devices and will be recognized automatically, the problem detecting large capacity drives like this relies on what type of hardware you are using (laptop itself). what I am trying to point is that old laptop only recognize lower capacity drives and thus have this issue.
but if you are using the latest hardwares and OS, just let me know so that i can pin point the problem.

Try doing a system restore, if that does not work. Check The cable that connects motherboard to Hard drive, it's a bad cable, or a bad broken Hard drive on your hands.

Take out the hard drive.
At the back of the hard drive you will find a jumper. pull it out and change the location or put it at the end.
connect the hard drive and check.

Did you install to a separate "partition" of the disk-space, or just to a different "folder" on the 'C:' drive. For comparison, Windows NT installed to the 'C:\WINNT' folder, and, by default, Windows XP/Vista/7 install to the 'C:\WINDOWS' folder.

If you installed to a different folder, open My Computer.
Open the 'C:' drive.
Click on that folder-name.
Hold down the SHIFT key and press the DELETE key.
Say 'yes' to confirm that you want to delete the folder, thereby_bypassing_ moving the folder into your 'Recycle Bin'.

If you installed to a different partition, open "Disk Management (local)",
select the partition, and either DELETE or FORMAT the partition.

Okay , so there are some steps to figure out what is wrong with your external.

Firstly , if your computer makes a sound when you plug in your external , go to Start-Control Panel-Administrative Tools-Computer Management-Disk Management , and see if your external drive is listed here with your local drives. If it is listed , right click on the drive and change the drive letter to make it appear in "my computer".

If your drive does not make a connection sound when connecting to your computer and also does not show up , please follow the next step.

Remove the hard drive from the casing if possible and install it in your computer case or another external case.If the drive works , the problem is with the casing and you can ignore the drive.

Now , if the problem is with the casing , there are still 3 possibilities.

  1. The USB cable between the drive and the computer may be damaged.
  2. The circuit board which connects your drive to the interface of the external may be blown.
  3. The power supply (if applicable) may have a blown transformer.
The latter is the easiest to diagnose , does your external light up at all when you plug in the power? If not , then this is probably your problem. On the bottom of the adapter is a label which you will be able to use to have a new adapter made at your local electronics shop and this will cost about $30 max. They will also be able to test the adapter with a clamp meter to see if this is really the problem and this should be free.

The second component you want to test is the USB cable. If you have a printer , swop out the cables and see if your printer functions normally. Most externals use the same connector so you should be able to test it in this manner. If the cable works go on to the last step. If the cable is defective , replace it with a new one which you can find for about $10 at most electronics and chain stores.

The last component to test is the circuit board. This is a bit of a grey zone as you probably won't be able to spot the blown component unless it failed really badly. With the casing already opened , locate the external's circuit board and check to see if you have any blackened components or fluids leaking from some components. If all the other components of the external worked perfectly , then this is the faulty part. It is not really economical to replace the circuit as most of the time it is out of production by the time you need to replace it and it still costs a lot even if it is available so if your drive is working perfectly when connected via sata or IDE on your computer , the best is to buy a new casing and place your old drive in the new casing.

A casing costs about $50 and you could get it at most tech shops and big chain stores like Best Buy.

I hope this solves your problem and please reply if you need more help.

Kind Regards

Check the jumper settings on the new drive drive,it should be set to MASTER otherwise it will not boot. Also check your BIOS settings to insure that the computer is seeing the drive.

If tou can find it in booting time on bios screen, Just goto,,, start>control panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>storage>disk management. You should see the new drive. Click on it and try import foreign disk . it should bring the disk. try making new oartitions there.

All I can asume is that you are trying to install this on a slightly older computer. All is not lost though. you need to find out the name and model of your motherboard and go to thge web site to see if there is a bios update. if there is then get it and use it mthods vary but instructions will be on your motherboads web site.

Try that first as the second method is not my prefered one. Next you can try to set the drive up on a newer machine and whilst doing so split the partitions into 4 so that you would end up with what looks like 4 drive of just under 250Gb (You wont get 250Gb becuase of overheads)
Try it in your older computer and if all is good you are away to the races.

If that fails you are looking at using software to fool the bios. This has the advantage in that you can use the whole drive and dont need to creat partiions but quite often has a speed disadvantage becuase software has to do a lot of work.

The software is here but I hope you got it working way before you need this

No its nothing wrong with connecting a external harddrive to a laptop. Usually docking stations wouldn't cause this problem. It could have been just a bad luck of the draw with your laptop. Man made it and it can fail. Just normal wear and tear

Samsung 1TB... | Answered on Aug 11, 2009

try re-installing your O/S then delete the partion/s and create a new one it should give you the total capacity after that, post back if you still have questions
