Do you have the cd for either vista, xp or the operating system you intend to put on the drive, and is your pc setup to read the cd drive first? Either way insert the cd if your drive does not have a OS on it already then the cd shouls automatically run, if it already has an OS on it then you will have to boot from cd first,
turn on the pc hit delete on the keyboard a menu will pop up
use your arrow keys go to advanced BIOS features go down to where it says first boot device hit enter choose cdrom then go to the second and change that to hard drive
then hit f10 on the keyboard and the type y for yes to save then exit the screen
When the pc starts to boot up again it will show the cdrom booting up first hit any key to boot from the device will show up also tap a key on the keyboard and it will start running from the cd, follow the instructions on the screen when they come up and go from there,

Now if you are unable to get into the BIOS screen but you already have an OS on the pc then insert the cd in the pc and go to my computer and open the cd or let it automatically start up if you just inserted the cd. Then when it prompts you to choose to format.

Formatting USB1TB with the Fat32 tool, the tool says it's completed formatting, but hte drive is not formatted under Windows 7 (which also can't format the drive).


FAT32 only supports up to 4 Gigabyte drives. It's not possible to format a 1TB drive with it. You should format the drive using NTFS which Windows 7 would also recognize. What operating system are you using to format the drive?

Hai i have transcand stor get 320GB hard disk. my propblem my computer detect the hard disk but when i try to open that it asks "do you want format it?" what shoud i do?.


If the computer is prompting that the drive needs to be formatted, this means either the drive has become currupt (not likely) or that the drive hasn't been formatted or is an unrecognised format

if the hard drive was formatted on a Mac or Linux machine without choose Fat32 format, the drive will be prompted to be formatted under a windows machine

if there is no information on that drive, i'd suggest just formatting it

remember formatting a hard drive removes all information off that hard drive.
