Hi, the Essential edition of Wester Digital is not networkable. The workaround is you can, share the computer to which it is connected and access the drive on the network.

If you want a networkable drive , go for the Wester Digital world edition , its available in single hardrive and dual hardrive capability for more data safety. following is the link for the same.

You need to format your drive as FAT32.
If you are using Windows Vista or 7, you will have to google search for a FAT23 formatting tool. So take your data off the drive. Format the drive, put your files back on the drive and your good to go.
*************CAUTION************
There is a 4GB per file size limitation with FAT32!

Hard drive on my computer is reporting 75MB left on a 20 gig drive with only word and a couple smaller programs on it - someone please give me an idea.


Hi!

Let's see how much left on your hardisk and how much space that your programs used in your disk..do this..

Double click the "My Computer" icon
Right click on your "Local Disk (C:)" drive and click properties...
The blue color indicator will tell you how much space was used by your programs on your hardisk..
The pink color indicator will tell you how much free space left on your hardisk
The capacity value should be more or less 19 GB..
See if this capacity value match in your drive..

If the capacity value of your drive is below 10 GB then my guess is you have a wrong setting for your hardisk... Look physically in your hardisk. Between the port of ide cable and power supply connector you will see terminals with jumper on it.. The jumper is used to short the terminal. the function of the terminal is to assign the hardisk as slave, master, cable connector and or limit the capacity of the hardisk to some amount.. Check the label of the hardisk.. schematic diagram on it will explain where to put the jumper...

If the setting of the jumper was correct and the capacity value of your drive match to approximately 19 GB... then I suggest you browse the files on your drive. Check all its sizes.. There could be movies there that eats your space.

I hope I explained to you everything you need to know..

Much appreciated if you rate this help.. thanks

If you're using the original XP version it wasn't able to format the correct size of the hard drives. You need to find a version with Service Pack 2 and boot off that CD in order to format the correct size of the drives. You could also boot off a Vista installation CD and format the correct size.

Data not copy other hardisk


Maybe your secondary hard drive is write protected due to third party software during the old installation of the system such as norton data recovery.

Hope this will be helpful to you.

External Segate 200 GB SATA Hardisk (USB 2.0 connection to PC)


I appears the volume may have been corrupted. YOu should run data recovery on the drive if you need any of the content. If not reformatting the drive, should restore it. If the contents are not important, or you have it backed up, go ahead and connect it to the MACINTOSH and format it for MS-DOS.

Unless it is physically damaged ( clicking, beeping, knocking ) it shoud be usable.


Hope this helps.
