I researched Samsung.com, and downloaded the appropriate Disk Manager program as well as HUTIL.EXE. After several attempts, I cannot get the new hard drive to be recognized by my dell notebook, as well as Windows XP setup. In addition, the disk manager program is also not identifying a hard drive as well.
I am new to this, and am a bit confuses as to how to set my jumper cables to be a master drive (or master with slave??). Do I need to manipulate the actual hard drive itself (pins?). And if so, is the warranty violated if I do.
As for CMOS, the disk manager instructions also are confusing. I can change the parallel port to auto, but cannot access anything regarding the hard drive.
ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
I will add a Samsung attachment as a reference.
