Question  Recognising issue? by clarkeme

Hi, Wonder if you could answer this before I purchase. Alot of people seem to comment about this drive not being seen, until you access drive management and initialise. However if installing a clean windows 7 will this be an issue?

I have an ASUS Commando Motherboard, and want this to be the sole drive. 1. Is this compatible, and 2. Will there be an issue when I do clean install.

Many thanks in anticipation

1. While I cannot guarantee compatibility, this HDD should be fine with your Asus Motherboard.
2. You shouldn't have any problems doing a clean install into this drive. You would only need to initialise the drive if you were using it as a secondary drive.

Question  Will it work?? by Larry

Hi All,
I don't know much about computers so I thought I'd ask about this before buyin!!!
I have a Packard Bell with this model Motherboard: MCP61DM2MA. Will this Samsung work in my setup?
It will be used purely for storage of work material. The drive I am currently running is fine.

Thanks guys,

While I cannot guarantee compatibility, this HDD should be fine with the MCP61DM2MA.
