Have you tried using that same USB drive in another computer? If it's possible do that, and copy everything you have in it to a folder. Insert it back into the same computer and format it to correct any issues there might be in the drive or files.

If that's not an option, plug it back in and when it tells you to format it click no. Immediately unplug it without "remove safely" otpion and then plug it in again in another USB port.

How i format my 16gb data traveler


If your computer is XP, Vista or Windows 7, right click on the "My Computer" icon,
then left click on "Manage", on the left side list left click on :"Disk Management".
If your fash drive is pluged in and detected it will appear on the list of drives.
Look for the 16GB drive, then left click to have a list of option to perform on
the drive. Select "Format" and a pop-up window will appear for formatting options.
I recommend "Fat 32", as it is best for normal transport or backup option.

This is a difficult one. It could be the card itself or the card is not formatted.

You may need to buy a card reader that has itself own driver for this format.

Try looking on the ACER sirte for a driver taht is compatible...

other... buy a card reader at www.newegg.com that is compatiblie.

Cant reinstall windows because it sayd it cant find a hard drive


two things, check your jumper setting, if it is an IDE hard driver.
Second the computer usually won't recognize the Hard drive until it is formatted for the first time. Did the computer stop and say it could not find hard drive ? and you got F1 to continue, well if you did, just continue. Error 655D is a registry screw up, unplug your usb stuff if you can. remember your drivers aren't installed yet (usb requires drivers-once windows is reinstalling your get the drivers...good luck if you need any more help, just let us know

My hard drive is not being recognized but its still getting power too it but its not showing up on the computer any where so i think there is something wrong with the usb port on the hard drive


Shut down computer, plug in USB hard drive, start computer, open "My Computer" and see if drive shows? If so, you may have to format it before using it.

I am unable to format my Maxtor One Touch III 500gig External Hard Drive. Once i get to 100% using ms disk manager, a message box pops up saying that it was unable to format the hard drive. In linux when i...


If it shows up in windows explorer as a drive, right click it and choose format and choose ntfs as the file format.

Do you know what format it is when you use linux? I dont think you can use a dos command to format an ntfs volume. Your message probably means it cant read FAT or FAT32 because it probably already is NTFS file format.
