Windows 98 Mis-reading Harddrive

Will this program work to fix that, or do I need something else? It was where the XP reinstall was placed.I didn't read where you used the HP Recovery CDs or FDISK.So far, it looks like cockpit error.Bob Flag Permalink This was helpful (0) as are USB hard drives and flash memory cards (recovery tips for that media is detailed here).

Jumper settings that limit hard drive capacity Most hard drives have a special jumper setting that allows you to limit their capacity to either 32 or 128 (137) gigabytes. By the way - I used my PCMCI SATA adapter to connect locked HDD to another notebook. I dont fully understand do I go to system-hardware-device manager and uninstall the hard disk driver or actualize it, what do I do from their? I haven't tried it yet, but don't want to be tweaking BIOS settings if i don't have to.

This was not necessary - but the error dialogue in the next version of the software should ask users to check that the drive is a) on its own channel and Replaced my ATAPI DVD drive with this combination and the drive was recognized. Testing drives on computers I work on, about half had at least a minor error in the partition tables.

  1. I'm sure a search engine.
  2. the virus doesn't allow any...
  3. i'm a huge fan of windows 98 and made a rash decision to install it instead of putting out $50...
  4. If you've been using computers for a decent amount of time there is a good chance someone has told you that data stored on a hard drive is not exactly safe.
  5. After running the repair routine it reported an error with the drive so I restored my system to normal, very disappointed.
  6. Usually this area is quite large (8-20 GB).
  7. Is there any other things I should try?

    Eugene on May 27, 2008 9:11 am Hi, I have a Fujitsu MPG3102AT-E hard drive connected to one (of my early PCs)
  8. Thanks, Joe

    Joe on March 15, 2008 11:31 pm Hi Dmitry, I have a unique issue with my HDD, I have Samsung 40 GB IDE HDD on Desktop, one fine
  9. December 24, 2009: Major Theme change and more....
  10. Computer Management->Disk Management now shows the drive as "UNALLOCATED".

My primary machine uses Intel ICHR8f AHCI drivers.

John Woods on June 27, 2008 4:15 am if i use the tool will i lose my data on hdd??

zaher Unfortunatelly, the drive does not show up in windoez at all, not even in device manager, and neither does it show up in your tool, even though it shows up fine As far as I can tell there is no limiting jumper setting that I use (even though the drive has such features). When you boot up it will detect your hard drive and tell you your orginal speed.

it is only in bios and formatting utilities. I have a 20GB harddrive that is only reading 1.99GB with-in windows. Been running linux on f1 750gb for quite a while. Not even if it's been slipstreamed with SP4 or later, and the EnableBigLBA option is set.


ziki on June 10, 2008 9:24 am ziki: If you have checked the jumpers as described in the article, then I guess you can return the drive for a OR Boot with win98 boot disk and start with option 1 ie boot with cdrom drivers.

Suggest if Capacity Restore will help to restore the capacities of both these HDD. thanks for the info Flag Permalink This was helpful (0) Collapse - Sorry. Is there something I am missing here? This Guide also deals with recovering deleted formatted information.

Bought the same drive today and it said it was 33Mb.. and set your drive for whatever is appropriate. Buga, Jul 27, 2004 #3 Elvandil Joined: Aug 1, 2003 Messages: 51,988 What does fdisk say about the allocation on the drive? Why is it saying that?

As a guest, you can browse and view the various discussions in the forums, but can not create a new topic or reply to an existing one unless you are logged IS THERE ANY KIND OF FACTORY JUMPER OR A FIRMWARE UTILITY OR SOMETHING TO RESET THIS DRIVE? Oops. © 2017 PCSTATS.com Please respect the time and effort that went into creating each PCSTATS Beginners Guide, do not illegally copy. For example, if the physical drive is 70.3 GB (75,484,122,112 bytes) in size, Fdisk reports the drive as being 6.3 GB (6,764,579,840 bytes) in size.

Noticed there are no entries in the registry, so I assume it is all contained in the executable. If it's an outdated motherboard then you might have one of those old BIOSes that only support 8.4GB. Thanks

Download HDD Capacity Restore Tool.

The WD Software and my BIOS worked fine together- it was WinDoze that failed to cooperate- it was only in 98, under Properties for the drive that it was misreading. or is too late ?????? I've been using it, but am heading into a large editing job, and while I could just go buy a big drive I hate wasting the left over part. Once reported, our moderators will be notified and the post will be reviewed.

I'm probably going to swap out both, though, unfortunately, I'm past the 15 day return policy on the CPU and will have to deal directly with AMD to replace. Klahn on June 15, 2008 7:50 pm Hi Dimitry, in addition to my first reply: Today I´ve tried run HDD Capacity Restore on another PC, to restore my boot drive. Thank you in advance!

Fik on February 10, 2008 7:47 pm HarshReality: Make sure that you put affhdd.sys into C:\Windows\System32 Also, the operating system has to be 32-bit only. I figured it was the IE install and Windows just wasn't work right after, so I figured I'd fdisk, format, and reinstall.

Normally I like to install hardware with the software made for it by the company... The other one is blank . Easily customize display layouts to see what you want, how you want it in 4k. except a strange "clack" at every boot !!!!!

Note on my end, I had to use Disk Management to first remove the 31.4 gig partition, so it's completely unallocated. Undeleting Files in Windows XP Pg 11. Also make sure that you have the LBA mode on.
