Question about Hitachi Deskstar T7K250 160 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer


Ihave a new SATA drive but it is not running at the 3 GB/s transfer speed my system supports SATA II and I have read on Hitachi's site that you need to use the FTOOL. I have tried to use this on the floppy as it explains but when i go to boot from this disc it wont boot. So i made a normal MS boot disc, booted up in DOS and then changed disc's and run Ftool and i get the following error (stub error (2003) cant find dpmi16bi.ovl Has anyone any other idea on changing the transfer speed of the drive.

Easy, just hook up old drive as secondary and new drive as primary. Copy what you need from the secondary onto the primary. When you are done, just disconnect the secondary drive and enjoy your new one.

Your motherboard MUST have a SATA 3.0 port. It is usually blue or look closely on the motherboard to see where the 3.0 port is located. If your motherboard doesn't have a 3.0 port your hard drive won't be any faster than a normal hard drive.

Hitachi H3D10003272S, 3GB/S or 6GB/S ?

That hard drive has a Sata II (3b/s) interface so you won't get any extra performance from a Sata III (6b/s) port, but it will still run, but it will run as Sata II (3b/s).

Any it should be 3gb not 3gB
b = bit
B = byte
byte = 8 bits

So you would think that a 3gb/s would operate at 375MB/s but manufacturers advertise everything as 10bits = 1 byte so you have to take the speed or even hard drive size and multiple by .8 to get the actual speed 375 * .8 = 300MB actual speed.

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions, SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?

make sure the CPU central processing unit has thermal grease and a dust free secure seating

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly

could be a memory dump you might have to many programs running at one time putting to much stress on the CPU not having enough ram will do this

might be getting to hot make sure the CPU has a dust free secure seating and has THERMAL paste

if you right click in the bottom toolbar select task manager applications you will see whats running also processes you will see whats ticking over if you see something running that should not be select end now you might even uninstall that program and some unnecessary programs

check your computer ram and cmos battery to make sure they are securely seated and the battery has plenty of charge

some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope it helps

Hitachi Deskstar - Model HDP725050GLA360 Sata 3.0 500 GB S/N RJ3KSXHE Clicking sound after being dropped. Is there any hope of recovering the data on this drive at a reasonable price?

if the hard disk has crashed and the sound when it runs later he failed to be detected by the system, it is difficult to restore the data in it because it was not detected by the computer. The cheapest way is that you replace with only secondhand.
