RAW file system is typical of an unformatted hard drive and is the default state for most new retail drives because the manufacturers won't know which operating system their customers are going to put on the drive or use it in conjunction with.

Most operating system installations come with utilities to partion and and format new drives see fdisk from MSDOS (specifically versions 5 and higher) And MS Windows 3.1 through 95,98 and ME which all used the FAT32 file system as default and would partition and format during installation. Windows NT similarly would partition and format the drive during install to the NTFS system, as do all versions of Windows XP.

if you are not installing a new OS but setting the drive as a slave to a currently installed drive then you can use a program like Partition Magic or similar to detect the installed drive and partition / format it tou your requirements

Convert raw fat32 flash drive


Hello,
Want to format RAW flash drive into FAT32 without data loss?
Ok! You come to right place since I did have ever encountered the similar RAW drive problems and learned how to cope with such data loss troubles.
Honestly, while your flash drive was detected as RAW file system, though the PC was always asking you to format, your flash drive was not really corrupted and your drive files were still stored inside this drive well.
All you are supposed to do is to download RAW file system recovery software to take the inaccessible original files back and convert flash drive from RAW to NTFS safely.
Hope my experiences could give you useful clues.

NTFS harddrive now reads as RAW


After experiencing the related hard drive RAW file system issues last year, I did have learned that the related RAW drive data loss troubles happened to people after they did have rudely extracted drive out from computer, sudden computer crashing or hard drive corruption, etc.
However, no matter why and how it occurred to you, you are supposed to recover data from RAW file system drive with the help of hard drive raw file system recovery software.
And then, format this drive to convert RAW to NTFS or FAT32 file system.
So, you may also go take chances.
Also make drive data backups well on several drives from now on.
Hope my experiences also give you useful clues.

I can open the Hard.Disk because the systeme is RAW not NTFS i tryed to fix it with diskwizard recovery pro but don't work i was waiting 9 hours i have imporatant files in my HD. Please what is the...


the RAW drive means the hard drive is raw, i.e not formatted. Your hard drive had a partition failure. The best way to go about this problem is to download the Easeus Partition Manager Free, and run a partition recovery procedure. Sofar there are only positive reports about Easeus, and I too have positive ones (saved 1.5TB of data just recently) so I wholeheartedly recommend it.
Once you download it and install it, the interface is quite easy to understand and easy to follow.

If this was helpful and informative please vote with a Thumb Up. Thank you.

Cant Format pen drive


1. Download this tool:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4040651/LLFTOOL.EXE

2. Format

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

Dvd writer does not burn on raw file system cds


What OS are you using? I doubt it is the burner. I have the same model burner and it burns everything I try to burn just fine. It works on both my XP SP2 installation and the OS X86 Leopard 10.5.5 installation. I have burned video, data and bootable OS DVDs and CDs in both operating systems.

It may just be Nero. You could try Alcohol 120% or Ultra ISO.
