This drive is an IDE/ATA hard drive.
To use this as an external hard drive, I suggest you purchase an USB hard drive adapter case (with an USB cable) and install the hard drive into this case.
When you plug this adapter into the USB port of a computer, the computer will see this as an external hard drive.

I've a Fujitsu MHV2080At like external disk and from some days PC don't recognize Hard disk and this is "dead" , the led's are ok when i connect USB but the head of hard disk don0t...


  1. Serial ATA:  If you have a 3.0 Gbit/sec SATA drive that is not being detected by your 1.5Gb/sec SATA controller, or it causes your system to lock up when connected to a 1.5 Gbit/sec SATA controller, you may need to jumper your 3.0 Gbit/sec SATA drive to the slower speed of 1.5 Gbit/sec for the system to recognize it properly. For further information on changing the jumper setting to slow down your SATA drive's transfer rate, please see Document ID: 193775
    -48-8s.jpg -- (Click to expand) Jumper settings for Seagate SATA drives 
    -48-9s.jpg -- (Click to expand) Jumper settings for Maxtor-brand SATA drives 

    ATA:  It is recommended that all Seagate ATA hard disks supporting the Cable Select jumper option be configured as Cable Select. If your computer system was built prior to October 1998 and does not support UDMA 66 or greater you will be required to use the Master/Slave jumper settings.

    -48-11s.jpg -- (Click to expand) Jumper settings for Maxtor-brand ATA drives 

    When using Cable Select jumper settings on your ATA drive, all devices connected to the UDMA cable must also use the Cable Select setting. The cable decides master/slave device detection when the cable select jumper settings are used. Please consult Document ID: 196299 for further instructions. 

  2. Faulty Hard Drive

    If you have completed the above checks and procedures and the drive is still not properly detected, please attempt to use Seatools for DOS (see the tutorial here) to test the drive.  If SeaTools does not detect the drive after the steps followed above, or an error code that signifies drive failure displays, please proceed to the our Warranty Services page to begin a warranty replacement order.

I have purchased Fujitsu MHV2080AT. It says new hardware found and it is ready to use but I dont see any drive on mycomputer. But if I see in mange it show the "VUZIVSW_HV228AV RL2 2 USB device"...


Right click MyComputer and select Manage. Look for Storage on the right and select Disk Management. Find your drive and format the partition by right clicking it and selecting Format. Use NTSF, default allocation size then give the drive a letter or name. After that it should show up in MyComputer.

starting with your last question first, our advice is free but you can choose to pay someone for their professional advice if you wish.
from vthe symptoms you explain, it sounds like the the drive is just about dead, continual clicking usually indicates some sort of physical damage to the drive itself.
if the drive fails completely, data recovery would be quite expensive in these instances so if possible you should get another external drive and transfer your data before the inevitable happens.

How do you retrieve data off the hard drive


Take the hard drive out if the DVR or what ever it is you want to retrieve the data off of and order a hard drive enclosure if the cable is small and looks like this:http://members.lotterypost.com/todd/images/blog/Sata_Cable.gif
you need a SATA enclosure if it looks like this:http://amigakit.leamancomputing.com/catalog/images/cable-ide.jpg You need an IDE hard drive enclosure you can find them at HTTP://WWW.AMAZON.COM at good prices :)

HOW DO I CONNECT THIS DRIVE TO MY DESKTOP PC ? WHAT TYPE OF ADAPTER DO I NEED?


The adapter has both interfaces on it...that is, it will plug into an EIDE interface or the SATA interface. The other end is a USB connection for plugging in to the computer, this way the computer treats the drive as an external. They sell for around 20 bucks.

How can i make my seagate hard disk an usb hard


It is quite easy, do not worry.
You only need to bought and USB enclosure, here is a link to many products on ebay
http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=p0.m37.l1313&satitle=hard+drive+enclosure+usb&category0=

then you have to connect your hard drive inside the enclosure and the enclosure to your computer using the usb cable and that's it.
Just be carefull about the enclosure, I guess it is a Hard drive from a desktop, is in it? because some enclosure are for laptop's hard drive.
Also you need to know if your hard drive is SATA or IDE, IDE is the normal gray bus cable with fourty some pins, and the SATA it is a really small cable (I do not use technicims to not confuse you even more).

Also, there are some adapters from IDE/SATA to USB that you can buy in your local computer store (do not go to bestbuy, compusa, ... they only sell external hd), or also get it from ebay.
The only diference between the enclosure and the adapter is that the enclosure looks better :D, and the adapter is just a bunch of cables.
