I have toshiba basic canvio 500gb harddisk i connect to my pc and it show mgs like this (spif301 usb2sata bridge usb device) what is this i can't access my data please help me


It may be a driver problem. Try connecting it to a different PC. If it still does not work check the condition of the drive. You can check if there are problems with the drive using the free trial version of http://www.hdtune.com/

If it checks out ok then you can try to recover your data with Recuva it's free http://www.piriform.com/recuva

Or if you need data recovery help this a good choice for low cost and fast data recovery. All data recovery work is performed remotely over the Internet from a boot cd that you download and the best part is they just ask for donations if you are happy with the results: http://FreeDataRecovery.us

What steps will be done in order for me to reformat my computer?


1) All computer has BIOS ( Basic input/output system). Here, you can set up how your PC will run. It is a blue colored full screen with different tabs like general, exit, devices and many more. Go to BIOS by simply hitting del (delete) continuously after restarting your computer.

2) Once in BIOS, look for the booting set up. Listed there are the devices which computer normally boots. ( Harddisk, CD-rom, Floopy Disk and Network)

3) Place the CD-Rom as the first boot and see to it that the bootable CD of Operating system you want is inserted in the CD-Rom. Then Place harddisk as the second booting device. Third and fourth booting devices are not usually important.

4) Save the changes and Exit. This will restart your computer automatically.

5) When your computer restarts wait until you see a message saying.........
Boot to CD........<----if this showed up hit any key to boot to CD. This will make your computer refer to the CD.

6) They will ask you if you want to delete or to create a new partition. For me just delete the partition and do not create anymore partitions. This will only slows your computer down.

7) After Deleting the partitions, they will ask you if you wanted to format you PC. There are 4 choices in there:

a. Quick format (FAT)
b. Format (FAT)
c. Quick format (NTSF)
d. Format (NTSF)

Choose the format either NTSF or FAT. Sometimes quick formatting result to corruption of some files.

8) The computer will copy the contents needed from the CD to your PC and installs it. Windows will appear but i know when you see one you can understand what to do. It will just ask for date and time and user name if you want to.

9) After the installation is complete the computer will automatically restart.

10) Once restarted, set the display in your choice. You can do anything now. Congratulations, you now can reformat

No operating system installed or partition corrupted. Press 'R' to perform a full PC Recovery.


Check ... do you have a non booting CD in the CD drive or do you have a floppy disk drive that may have a non boot disk in it? Remove them.

Your operating system is corrupted OR the boot sector of your disk is failed or failing ... maybe your entire hard disk is failing ...

Try the press "R" to try to recover ... which will fix the corrupted files. If it is a hardware failure ... your computer wioll not 'recover'. If that is the case ... you will have tp put in a new drive.

If you have valuable files on the drive ... you may want to get professional help with this. There is that possibility that you can get a new drive and use the preent drive as a slave long enough to get your files off safely.

Hardisk problem


With a bad hard drive you have a few options. If you have valuable data on the drive that you want to retrieve, you could make a BartPE disk from a working PC. Their website has step by step instructions on how to do this. this way you can boot to a CD and browse around your files and copy them over to an external hard drive, finger drive, or floppy disk. Just google BartPE. Alternatively you can go buy another drive from bestbuy, install it as a master with the defect as slave. Install windows on the new and once it's all up try to browse the old drive to recover the files.

If there is nothing on the drive you want, toss it, buy a new one and reload windows.

Ntldr is missing, press ctrl,alt and del to restart


the ntldr.sys file is used to boot your winxp, this should have got corrupted, or your boot sector in the harddisk should have got corrupted.

what file system was used on your harddisk ( Fat32 or NTFS)

if it is Fat32 then you can try this. boot your system with win98 boot cd or floppy. after booting insert your windows xp cd in the cd drive copy the file ntldr.sys from the i386 folder to the os root dir(usually the c:) you will receive a overwrite message. do the over writing. thats all.
now restart your system normally (harddisk). it should be fine.

if the file system is NTFS, i am sorry to say, if you dont know the admin pass, you will have to repair the installation with the winxp cd,

for this boot your system with the winxp cd, on the first screen, press enter( for a fresh installation), then press F8, now you will be notified that there is already a window installation, on this screen press 'R' to repair the installation. follow the online screen.

Actually this is a nothing but just a reinstall of the OS. you may have to reinstall most of the os updates. and a few softwares also.

Hope this helps you.
