Hello have a lappy with a 80gig harddrive the pc sees this just fine .its a
PATA.I was going to replace with an 120 gig ultra ata drive. the notebook
wont see the 120gig drive, even in the bios..if i put the 120 in a usb
encloser, it works fine as an external.This has me stumped.

Probably a BIOS issue.

The OS can see a 2nd drive...(even if the bios does not)...
especially USB

Could be but double check the jumper settings on the samsung with the mfg's
instructions. You could also try the samsung in the external using a HD
laptop adapter or run a mfg diagnostics tool.

Uh, I think you should stick with a PATA Hard Drive, ATA is a different
format.

No, it is not a different format.


PATA or P-ATA = Parallel ATA

SATA or S-ATA = Serial ATA
