External HD raw format

#1 Post by Someb » 03 Sep 2012, 06:58

I hope you can help me. Just by connecting my external HD to another PC ( I did that several times with no problems) WIN7 doesnt recognize the HD anymore or ask me to format it.

I tried Testdisk (that program recognizes the HD) and run Quick seacrh and deeper search. Both ways i get the same result. In a nutshell: The HD seems to be to small. See bumpers etc. The following

Check the harddisk size: HD jumpers settings, BIOS detection...
The harddisk (1000 GB / 931 GiB) seems too small! (< 2733 GB / 2546 GiB)
