Question about Maxtor Hard Drive

1 Answer

Computer doesn't recognize my other harddrive.

I put a few things on it then didn't need them on there but wouldn't let me delete it so I tried to format the drive and took about 20 minutes for it just to get less than half way done, so I thought that it might have froze cause of the lag I was getting and now when I go to my computer it doesn't show up.

Hi vga

sounds to me like you need to create a primary partition on the hard drive before the system will recognise it you should be able to do this using your opeating system disk but i cant tell you how to do this without knowing what OS you are using

Can not delete it is used by another program close any program that might be using the file an try again


Reboot the computer and as soon as you get back into windows try deleting the file again. If you get the same message then go into MSCONFIG (type it in the search box) into the startup tab. Disable all the programs and reboot the computer. Try deleting the file again. If you still can't delete it then it may be a system file your trying to delete and those I wouldn't mess with because it could screw up windows.
Last thing to try would be to boot up your computer in safe mode. Since it doesn't load much into memory you should be able to delete your file that way for sure.

Try restarting the iPod and connect it again. If it doesn't recognize it try it on another PC, if it still isn't detected it is the iPod. Buying a Mac wouldn't help nor hurt the situation, it would just be an expenditure.

Hi..

Is it a new harddrive in a external case..if so i have the same prblems and i have to remove the harddrive and insert it into my computer and format it 1st...then place it back into my external case...
If you have used it before,then the best thing to do is try it on an other computer,if that doesn,t recognize then try a different usb cable,if still no go...then the harddrive might be either virused up...then you will have to put it in your computer to virus scan.or your harddrive may be faulty...
Or the last thing...if it is a new external google your motherboard because if it is a old computer your trying to use it on..it may not regonize the harddrive if the capacity is to large..

Hope this helps..if so please take the time to rate it,and if i can be anymore help.

Regards

I just bought a GPX MP3 player (ML651B) I put music on it and was charging it. It now doesn't even want to turn on. I looked at the GPX website and I couldn't even find this one among their products. Now,...


The power button (more like a slide) on the bottom right side will turn it on once it's ejected from the computer. Hold the slide in, and let go after a second or two. Give it a few seconds (like 10) and it should power on. I got mine as a gift and am still working through the interface.

HARD DRIVE PROBLEM.


If the first drive will get recognized on another computer but not yours it would lead me to believe that the controller on your motherboard went out. But the part about the non os drive not getting recognized at all leads me to believe that drve went out. First i would definately take the drive somewhere to have the info transferred or if you can hear it spin up you might get lucky and it will work after you get your os to boot. it wouldn't hurt to have it backed up though. Before you do anything too drastic try to get your hands on another drive and see if you can get your PC to recognize any drives, if not then you will need a new motherboard.
