Installation of external hard drive

I am attempting to install a stortecc external hard drive. The hard disk light just blinks and windows does not see the hard drive at all under the disk management section. I hear no hard drive activity when plugged in. All cables and power supplies are hooked up in accordance with mfgrs instructions. Jumper set to "master" as specified. Yet no results. Hard drive is a brand new 400 gb seagate. I would like to format it, but can't even get that far. Is it possible to format these things through the USB port?

The drive should not be set as "master" if your not booting from it and only using it for storage. Master means the bootable disk that holds the operating system. You should change the setting to slave or cable select.You can format it, but chances are it is already formatted and ready to store. Good Luck, Tim

Windows 2000 cannot access USB drives for installation.
You need to replace the dead drive with a new IDE or PATA drive. That machine will not accept an SATA drive.

My External Hard Drive isn't working anymore, to say the just of it. It's on, lights on(not flashing, it flashes when it's being written to or accessed), usually has a regular clicking noise from it...


When a hard drive makes a clicking noise, this indicates the hard drive has failed and if the BIOS and the Computer Management does not detect it, then this confirm a hard disk failure.
To get the computer operating again, replace the hard disk, then install Windows on the hard disk using the Windows installation CD and the Windows product installation code that is on the label on the computer then install the device drivers and your programs.

When I connect my seagate expansion external hard disk 500gb having p/n:9sf2a2-500 in windows xp(sp2) system, found new hardware wizard pops up and when I click next it says Cannot install this hardware....


either an issue with the hard disk, or with your system. Make sure the hard disk has power on it and if you can, it would help to test it on another computer to confirm if it works. If you have ruled out the possibility that it is the hard disk, next is review if the hard disk has system requirements you need to meet. If the requirements are met by your XP SP2 machine, you may try updating the computer's system software/chipset drivers and a BIOS update may also be necessary.

I bought a seagate 500 But I don't know how to put pictures on it


Yes. Its possible.
  • Step 1: Analyze the system requirements of the Windows operating system. Windows XP requires 1.5 gigabytes of free hard drive space. Windows Vista requires 20 gigabytes (for the Home Basic edition) or 50 gigabytes (for all other editions). The system requirements for older, outdated versions of the Windows operating system, such as Windows Me and Windows 98, can be found on the official Microsoft Windows Web site (link in the Resources section).
  • Step 2 :Connect the external hard drive to the computer with which you plan to use the hard drive. Use the hard drive's original cables included by the drive's manufacturer. It does not matter what connectivity standard you use. Windows will automatically detect the external hard drive.
  • Step 3: Click the Start menu in the lower left-hand corner of the PC screen and select My Computer.
  • Step 4: Right-click the icon for the external hard drive. Click Format from the pop-up menu. Format the external hard drive in the NTSF format.
  • Step 5: Insert the original Windows installation disk into your computer's CD-ROM drive. Close the Installation Wizard when it appears on the screen.
  • Step 6: Return to the My Computer window from Step 3. Write down the drive letters assigned to the CD-ROM drive and the drive of your external hard drive. For the sake of this article, we will use the example of D:\\ being the external hard drive and E:\\ being the CD-ROM drive. These are typically the letters assigned to CD-ROM and external drives in the Windows operating system.
  • Step 7: Click the Start menu button and select Run.
  • Step 8: Type "E:\I386\winnt32.exe /syspart:D: /tempdrive:D: /makelocalsource /noreboot" (without quotation marks) and click OK. This launches the Windows installer file on the Windows installation disk in drive E:\\ and commands it to install on the D:\\ drive (your external hard drive). The Windows Installer Wizard screen will appear. (Change the Drive Letter as in your Machine)
  • Step 9: Select the Full Install option in the Windows Installer Wizard. You will then be guided through the Windows installation disk. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation. Depending on the speed of your computer's processor, this may take several hours. Be prepared to enter important information, such as your Windows registration key to register your copy of the Windows operating system. Do not close the installation window until the installation process is complete.

Thanks for contacting Fixya!
Step 10 Shut down the computer and disconnect the external hard drive. You can now use the external hard drive to boot up another computer using the installed copy of the Windows operating system.

Windows 7 NexStar drivers and installation needed


No device-drivers are needed. Just connect this USB device, and Windows will recognize it. If there is a "one-touch-backup" button, it won't work, but you can still use drag-and-drop to copy files from your internal disk-drive to this external disk-drive.

I have a gateway m285-e and can't get XXp Sp2 to recognize the Hard drive. How do i fix it??


hi guy
just follow this guide it'll help you
fisrst of all get the driver from here :

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/getFile.asp?id=20455&dscr=Gateway%20Notebook%20Computer%20Intel%20SATA%20Support%20DriverVersion:%205.5.0.1035

then follow this guide
Note: Installation of this driver requires the use of a floppy disk drive. If your computer does not have an internal floppy disk drive, an external USB drive can be used instead.

Download the driver file to the desktop, and then perform the following steps.

1. If you have not already done so, locate and double-click the D00455-001-001.exe file that you downloaded from the Internet and execute the file. Files extract to the C:\Cabs\D00455-001-001 folder on your hard drive.

2. Insert a blank floppy disk in the floppy disk drive.

3. In the C:\Cabs\D00455-001-001 folder, double-click F6flpy32.exe.

4. Click OK to start the disk creation.

5. The disk creation dialog box closes when the disk is complete.

6. During the installation of Windows you will need install this SATA controller driver. Press the F6 key on your keyboard to install a third party controller driver.

7. The Windows installation program requires the use of a USB floppy disk drive and the floppy disk that was created above.

8. The Windows installation procedure attempts to load the drivers twice; once directly after the F6 selection, and a second time after the installation files copy to the hard drive.

9. Select the "- Intel(R)82801GBM SATA AHCI Controller Mobile ICH7M" option as listed.

Note: To find the required selection it may be necessary to scroll down even though there is no indication to scroll down.

Note: If you experience any recognition errors during the installation, please reference this Microsoft Knowledge Base article KB916196. This article explains which USB floppy drives are supported by the Windows installation process. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/916196/en-us

Removal

Because the computer must have these SATA drivers when using a non-Gateway supplied operating system, these drivers are necessary and should not be removed.

just let me know
