The hard disk is not detected, inaccessible or unreadable because of possible hardware failure, corruption and/ or I/O errors.

To troubleshoot this issue, restart the computer or rescan the disk to try and return the disk to Online

To rescan the disk, open Computer Management, and then click status. Disk Management. On the Action menu, click Rescan Disks.

Just make sure ide cable is fixed properly to the hard drive when scanning.

I connect hitachi hts424040m9at00 40GB HDD with usb case but it not working plz help give me driver for xp


I assume this is an internal hard drive. If it is not being detected by windows, you need to go to disk management. refer to this link to learn more about disk management : http://www.theeldergeek.com/disk_management.htm
When you are in the disk management menu, you need to create a partition and format this partition (if the disk is new). If the disk already has data in it, then disk management will make Windows recognize the drive.

Hard disk drive not detected


firstly check your cable connections, then log onto your bios setup menu during startup and check whether the Hard drive is detected by your bios, if it is then you can try to format the harddrive using the ntfs system (use the long formatt) if you are using windows xp or later if using any earlier os then formatt with the FAT32 system.
If your HDD is not detected by the bios then try to download bios updates for your motherboard and install thed in windows. is this does not work then its time to get a new HDD. thanks

How to detect two IDE drives with same brand


You need to set one of the drives to be 'master' and the other to be 'slave'.
This is done by positioning jumpers on the back of the harddrives.
Pretty sure that on the drives is explained somewhere how to position the jumper, for several options.

Good luck,
Please post some feedback.

Check the jumper settings on the back of the drive, if this is the primary HD, set it to master, if secondary, set it to slave, if secondary still does not recognize, switch the ide cable so that the two drives are not on the same one.
