Question about Computers & Internet
I think I may have a problem. I bought an external harddrive off New Egg the other day and I was able to use it. My friend and I put about 8 gb of stuff on it. It is a 250 gig HDD. I tried deleting the partition, repartitioning it, and formatting it. When I try to format it, it wont format. I look in the Drive Manager and there is not a file system, what else can I do?
Right click 'my computer'
in the new window that appears look down the left side and you will see an entry called 'storage' the 3rd entry under this should be 'disk management' click on this
you should now see all the drives installed on the computer, choose the one you need and right click on it, then choose 'format' from the drop down list. follow any instructions.
If it does not format, then it could be a faulty drive, in which case return it to where you bought it.
