I asked this a few days ago; , I have a Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP1604N 160 GB Hard Drive in a HP compaq presario SR 1617CL I want to replace it with a larger HD, 500GB or 1TB. Can I replace it with a...


Yes, either of these drives will work. The cache is not all that important it is just where data is stored temporarily in case you have to access it again soon after a file is written to the hard drive. The best thing you could do in this case is see if your motherboard has a sata connection which I would assume it does and buy a sata hard drive. It will be much faster than either of those drives, just make sure you also get a sata power adapter if your power supply doesn't already have one and a sata cable.

My Western Digital 500GB USB has stopped working. No blue lights and the green light on the power supply is intermittantly flashing.


Hello,

What model Western Digital USB drive do you have? The problem is the power supply is bad, the flashing light is it trying to power up and failing so it tries again. If you et me know what model I should be able to help more.

Go into your computers BIOS screen. (on most computers, press F2 or the Delete key to get into the BIOS) and remove USB from your Startup list. Different Bioses preform this different ways so I can't tell you how to make sure this happens but trust me, it's in there.

How do I re format my Western Digital 500GB My Book so it will accept files greater then 4GB?


The only requirement for file sizes that large is that you format the drive using NTFS. FAT or FAT32 will not support files that large, so make sure you format NTFS :)

Hope this helps!

You have experienced a system emergency shutdown. In otherwords, your computer crashed. You can:
1: reinstall your operating system.
2: use a OS recovery disk to reboot the system.
3: send the computer to a data recovery specialist.
4: return the computer if the warranty is still valid.

Good Luck!
