If the drive works on your main computer e.g. workstation. Check the properties in computer management to see what type of format the drive is in. I had a similar problem with my sons external drive and I just ignored the warning, but it still worked.I hope this helpsregards

SOURCE: Hi.- My transcend external hard drive

Hi There two chances
1. You pen drive might have damaged
2. Either your external drive or PC is affected by some virus which wants any external drive connected to be formatted
I request you to check the drive by connecting it to some other PC other than yours and tell me the result. I can guide you to get the data
Thanks

Tip

One way that may fix a PS3 that freezes on startup.


1. Buy a External case like this one.. http://www.amazon.co.uk/IOMAX-External-Enclosure-Laptop-Powered/dp/B001EEQQ8Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1279755665&sr=8-1-catcorr
2. Remove your ps3 hardrive by taking of the cover on the side and removing the blue screw, then remove the tray from around the hardrive.
3. Place the hardrive in the external case.
4 Plug usb external case into computer, goto my computer then right click ps3 hardrive that will now show up.
5. Right click the drive and click format
6. After formating put the drive back into the ps3 and the ps3 will then come up with a message follow the instructions... and your ps3 will now work again.
(by doing this you will lose all your ps3 saves, music and videos and so on it will be like resetting your ps3 to when you bought it.)

Hope this solves your problem!

It does not contain a recognized file system


this is usually caused because the system did not originally format the drive. It seems to be a common problem with external drives that are moved from computer to computer.I had a similar problem with one of my sons external hard drives, yet I was able to copy four or 5 GB of data to it, with no problems.I have an external hard drive myself and so far I have not had this problem, as I use it on both my workstation laptop.This might be something worthwhile to research.Hope this helpsregards

I have a samsung wave 525 touch screen mobile. I tried to play a video that I transferred from my laptop but it is not working. it said file format unrecognized. the file was an avi file. So I went online...


convert your video to 3 gp or mp4 format by any video converter
while converting set the resolution less than your cell's resolution that is less than 400*240
*best resolution 320*240
use total video converter for best performence
u can also use abc 3 gp converter for easy converting

To recover your files you will need a 2.5" external sata usb hard drive case. Take the hard drive out of your lap top and install it in the case. Plug the USB drive into another computer with enough space to copy all the files you want to save. Once you have all the files backed up that you need format the drive and re install your operating system fresh. Then load all your rescued files back to your laptop with another external USB backup drive. This is the only way and I know it works because I have to do it every time I thrash my laptop running bad cracks. Please take the time to rate this fixya for sharing my secrets for free. If you need more help feel free to ask.

My 400gb freecom external hardrive won,t uncompress my files. i have recently reset my laptop back to factory settings. i dont know if this the cause of the prob but all i was ok b4. can you help please?


Hi,
Have you tried moving the files onto your laptop and uncompressing them there?

Did you have Winrar (or any other copressing software) installed on the laptop before you went back to factory settings? Are the compressed files on the external drive in the .zip or .rar (or another) file format?
