A fantom drive is a huge thumb drive or flash drive and it should work the same way: you don't need to install it, it should work with any os and there's no software needed; you just plugged in and turn it on, that's it. your computer (if it's not old: ..2000/xp or vista) should see it a few seconds after you have plugged it into the usb port (go to my computer and look for the new hard drive under removable drives).

when you save to you fantom drive you save files as with any other file that you would save in your computer. you only need to know what the drive letter is for your fantom drive. the computer should assigned an avaliable letter. (for instance the hard drive is usually drive C, your fdd is usually A, your cd drive is usually D, so your fantom drive could be E... (or any other letter avaliable) check under my computer and look for the new added drive, there will be a letter next to it). Unless the idea of having a fantom drive is to keep it permanently attached to your computer I would not suggest for you to install programs on your computer storing the programs files on the fantom drive. this drives are supposed to be removable/portable storage.. they're supposed to be for you to store documents and other files you may need to be able to access in mobile way. of course, you can save programs but I'm hoping you're meaning the installation files for you to install a program. the acutal program files should be kept in the default location which is c:/program files which is technically the hard drive inside your computer. if you need to keep the installation file of a program so you can take it to another computer then make sense for the installation files (not the program files) to be kept on the fantom drive.

I hope it's clear.. post back if you have any other questions..
I hope it helps too.

You don't mention what kind of OS you're using - but either Windows, or OS X should see your drive regardless.

Before use:

Windows: Format the drive with NTFS.
Mac: Finder should pop up and ask you if you want to initalize the drive, you can choose 'yes' and continue.

Firewire port usff 7010


If you're asking if a Dell OptiPlex 7010 USFF will support Firewire the answer is No...Unless you purchase and install a Firewire card

The OptiPlex 7010 USFF has the following external connections:
  • Front Panel: one microphone connector and one headphone connector
  • Back Panel: one line-out connector and one line-in/microphone connector
  • Network Adapter: one RJ45 connector
  • Serial: one 9-pin connector; 16550 C compatible
  • USB 3.0: Back Panel - 2
  • USB 3.0: Back Panel - 2
  • Video: 15-pin VGA connector
  • 20-pin DisplayPort connectors - 2
I don't recommend any USB to Firewire convertors but if you can find a Firewire Convertor PCI Express Card you can try installing it but remember the USFF has only one Mini PCI Express 52-pin connector, I've highlighted a possible product. It allows for Firewire 800 speeds. The included optional internal Molex power connection is only required if your Firewire device doesn't have its own power adapter

HOW DO YOU INSTALL A SECOND OS ON A SLAVE DRIVE. I AM RUNNING WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION. I WANT TO INSTALL WINDOWS 98 SECOND EDITION ON A SLAVE DRIVE DISC. SOME PROGRAMS I HAVE WILL NOT WORK ON XP.


You cannot install 98 directly on your system slave drive, but there is a way to install it.

1) disconnect your primary drive
2) make your slave drive as primary.
3) install 98
4) Connect your actual primary drive again and start your system

XP records your mac id of your motherboard and 98 does not records, the other way is, you can install both the OPS on your one primary drive by creating different partitions, you will need to full format your drive first.

1) Full format your primary drive.
2) Create partitions.
3) Install 98.
4) Install XP in different drive of your same hard disk

You will be able to see both your OPS when you start your system.

Want to install firewire card ,


There is no such thing as a firewall card. But there is a firewall program. If you have Windows Vista then search for Windows Defender. It is a free firewall that comes with Vista.

Installed western digital external hard drive, when i boot up my screen is blank no desktop


Is the drive USB or Firewire? If so, disconnect the drive from the USB/Firewire port, reboot the pc and then connect the drive. Windows should then find and install the drive.

Firewire


firewire is a lot like usb in the power area if the drive is not getting power i would suspect the firewire port. firewire did not become very popular because of problems like these. You need to go down to a computer parts store and by a firewire card and that should provide enough power and bypass the on-board ports. Try to hook another device up to the firewire ports and see if they work if not install the daughterboard with firewire ports

Verbatim 250GB External Hard Disk not recognized by PC


Almost always, when a USB drive doesn't assign a drive letter in MY Computer the issue is a Mapped network drive using the drive letter the USB drive is attempting to use.

With the drive connected, open DISK MANAGEMENT find the USB Drive, right click it and assign it an available drive letter.
