Q: previously, after changing one 10GB Seagate disk to one bigger disk, it’s left unused. Now I connect it back to the computer, no matter to take it as primary disk or slavery disk, disk volume could not display. Would it because the hard disk is broken?
A: you can try connecting the old 10GB disk on one IDE data cable, start up the machine and check whether the partition on hard disk could be found. If not work, then please open system “Device manager” to check whether there’s the old disk in the “Disk drive” list. If there is, then it indicates the old disk partition is already missing or the partition table is already damaged. Then go to system “Disk management” to repartition for the old disk. If not displayed, then go to the “IDE ATA/ATAPI controller” list; check the properties of “Primary IDE channel” and “Slavery IDE channel”, set “Device type” as “Auto test”. After finishing the setting, restart the computer. If system still fails to recognize the old disk, then mostly is because the disk or IDE data cable has hardware failure.
