    I have a 4.3gb seagate hard drive, ST34342A, that doesn't show in the bios
    of 2 computers either under user and hitting enter, or trying to type in
    cyl., heads, etc., when jumpered as master or as slave to another HD. 2
    other HDs I have show in both computers using the normal bios identifying
    methods. Is there some other way I can get into this HD or some way to
    fix it? Thanks

    The drive is dead; toss it.
    If you have lotza money, then take the drive to a data recovery place
    that has performed the service for at least 3 years and is known to be
    reliable (ie do the work and not skip with the green).
