Most external drives to not need installation discs. They are driven via USB, which Windows has built-in support for.

Any software that comes with an external drive is usually S.M.A.R.T. drive software or other "disk utilities", neither of which you have to have in order to use the drive.

Plug it in and go :)

I understood your friend but some times such a type of problems are occurs due to High magnetic field. High magnetic field cause such a damage which lost all data from Hard disc.

Just format your Hard disc and while installing OS you can create the desired size Partition.

I hope you understood what is the actual problem!!!!

I cant install xp on a fujitsu computer, after a few minutes it shuts down ?

there can be three reasons why you were unable to finish the xp setup process in your pc

1. first hardware detection failure, could be the hard drive itself that has the problem. Hard disk will of course need thorough formatting if you want to set up an xp os. And partition may be needed to if you want to divide the system from the data files. Faulty hard drive can ruin your set up process.

2. Windows SP cd installer. When this installer is corrupted, there is no way that you can actually setup successfully the windows operating system. If you have used the cd installer twice or utmost thrice then on its fourth it will not work. Files already will be missing on your installer.

3. DVD/CD ROM drive failure. Faulty drive can also affect the installation process. If the optical lens failed to read the disc then it will not install.

my guess its the hard drive.

let me know which one cause it.

My external hard drive is unreadable

Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If not - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.
