Capacity is 0 bytes, used space 0 bytes and free space 0 bytes, and if I try to do a chkdsk it says the windows cannot acces the disk

Local Disk

In windows explorer, but it does not show up using windows disk management.

With all hard drives unplugged i see this. There are 3 card readers on the tower and their drive letters are n o p.

I have another question - I have a local drive h: i cannot rename it and it does not show up in disk management and i cannot change the drive letter. I also have a drive q: which has been made by Office 2010. What is this local drive for and how do i change or delete it?

I connected the drive to my i7 PC and same thing, bios does not see it and getting the beep noise which is coming from the drive and not from computer speaker. I was watching youtube videos about the armature not in home position and how to fix that and also there was a few on putting the hard drive in the freezer for a few hours. I will probley try the dos boot cd and if that does not work I will take the drive apart, have 2 dragster USB externals that are out of war rent and making click noises, they are totally useless, cannot access them so will perform surgery on them as well.

If I download sea tools for dos and make the bootable cd, will it be able to see the hard drive even though the bios does not see it?

It is an internal drive and it is over 4 years old

No can do bios does not see the drive I cannot access it, going to try it on a few of my computers to see what happens. Have come to the conclusion that sea gate drives are crap, I have had 3 die on me over the last year, including a new 5 tb drive which I had for less than a week. Just copying files to it and it died.

No the beep noise is coming from the hard drive not the Compaq computer, one beep reapeating.

How can it show in disk management if the bios does not even see it. It beeps as soon as the power is turned on. Also is it common for the WSUS to take an extreamily long time. It says listing id's of missing updates, been almost 2 hours. When I run the windows update it says the updates have never been run, but when I check which updates have been installed there is a ton of them. Does WSUS fix the update program in windows 7 Home Premium OEM, this is on a Compaq system.

I am doing the WSUS offline right now. The hard drive does not even be seen in the bios, it is a 4 year old hard drive, just watched a youtube video of a guy taking the hd apart with the same problem. My friend is ok to take it apart, if we wreak it it will be a bookend.

Hi shane working on a friends computer and it will not do the updates. I have ran your tweaking program and Microsoft fixit and numerious other programs to no avail. How do I fix this? I am trying system restore right now and that is taking forever. Also he has a SATA Seagate Barracuda LP hard drive and it is making a beed noise on power up, am thinking the armature is stuck and I need to take the drive apart and set the arm back to the home position. Any suggestions? Also where do I go to download Windows OEM disk to do a system repair.

Hi guys, does anyone own a Boxie and if so have you installed the Boxie+ hack, have you had any problems with it. Have you also tried the XMBC program and do you have to leave either of these programs on the usb stick when you turn boxie on. The Boxie+ one installs. Also having problems on getting the boxie to recoginize some of the moves and tv shows, any suggestions would be helpful :)

Hey guys is there a program out there that works and you do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out to get the poster artwork and metadate for the movies that the boxie does not correctly identify. I have played around with Plex server and Meta server. I just want to add this info to my movie and tv show data base so my boxie will read it.

Does windows 7 keep a log or history or your file directories and if so how do i access it. I need to see the file tree on my 5 tb drive that died. AM hoping that windows 7 saves it on the c drive.

Hey guys, i bought a 5 terabyte drive (seagate) back in october, worked great until now. Was transfer 250 gigs of files to it. Let it run over night and when i checked it the next day it was still working fine. Checked back a few hours later and i have a duplicate file message so i told it to overwrite the file. After 30 minutes of waiting it was still showing the busy icon. Computer was locked up could not do anything, not even ctrl alt delta would work. I had no choice but to power off via power button on computer. Now the drive light is flossing fast and i cannot see the drive on any on my computer (both pc and MAC). Seagate tells me it is an internal power problem, yet i can see the drive listed in sea tools but i cannot run any of the tests, that all fail. Is the a way of getting into this drive. I have tried different USB cable with no luck. I want to get the data back. That is 2 seagate drives that have bit the dust on me.:(

Just fired the computer up and the drive spins up making many clicking noise and then spins down. Cannot get it to be seen by windows. Any other suggestions ? Looks like it is fried, wonder if it is worth it to send to a HD recover company, has over 500 gigs of movies on it.

Even from just starting the drive up from cold it does it. I just tried the free version of care and it locks up on both my x64 and x86 systems but when i try their standard edition which you have to buy it scans the drive. Weird.

Hi guys, Rick back again with another problem, not as bad as the last one but serious. My seagate 1 TB drive is maligning clicking noises which tells me it is crapping out. Now the drive tells me it is in RAW format and i cannot get the files from the drive. What program can i use to rescue the files and dump them to another drive? It show the directories in file manager but when i try to change into my movies dir it says I/o error.
