Easy, just hook up old drive as secondary and new drive as primary. Copy what you need from the secondary onto the primary. When you are done, just disconnect the secondary drive and enjoy your new one.

I need to hook up the external hard drive to my computer to get my favorites loaded back onto my computer. How do I do that?


Connect the external hard drive to your computer using a usb cable. Then go to 'my computer' on your pc, click it, you would see your external hard drive. Open it. Go to the location of your favourites on the hard drive. Right click on it. Select 'send to', then select 'my documents' to send it to your documents.
To unplug your hard drive, dont just pull it out. Go to the bottom right corner of your pc. Click on the notification icon. Hover the mouse pointer over each one of them till you see the one labelled 'safely remove external device'. Click on it, then click on your hard drive name. When you see displayed 'you can now safely remove external device', then unplug your cable from the pc and the drive. To access what you transfered to your pc from the hard drive, go to 'my documents'.

Hope that was helpful?
Have a wonderful day.

I have a r710dell server. It has two 146GB 15K RPM Serial-Attach SCSI 3Gbps 3.5in Hotplug Hard Drives. It seems like only one is being read. Because the C:\ is only 136GB. What could be the issue?


The two drives could be "mirrored" -- everything written onto one drive is also identically written onto the other drive. Thus, if one of the "set" of mirrored drives failed, you just remove the "dead" drive, insert a new drive, and tell it to "rebuild" the "set" of mirrored drives, i.e., it copies everything from the "good" drive onto the "new" drive, and then the "mirroring" will continue.

How to install hitachi cdr-7930 on my dell dimension 4100 window xp home edition it doesent computer fails to boot with it hooked up


If this is a IDE drive...You may have the data cable connected the wrong way around. Do you only have one hard drive installed..? If you have and you are connecting this drive on the same data cable as your hard drive, you need to set the hard drive to "slave present" or "Master" and the dvd drive to "slave" If this is a SATA drive, you do not need to do this and you may have a faulty drive.. On the rear panel of the drives (where the cables plug in) is a jumper pin. Now either marked on the case or even on the drive label are the meaning of these pins. There are usually four sets of two pins laid out vertically. You need to put the little black jumper onto the pins marked "slave" on the dvd drive and "slave present" or "Master" on the hard drive if they are both on the same data cable. you can also set both drives to "cable select" but you then have to use the correct connector on the data cable for each drive. try the slave and master settings first, if you have no luck, message me again..

My toshiba start and then turns off


Hard drives don't come with an operating system installed on them. If you have the recovery discs from the computer then you can use those to reinstall Windows onto the new drive. If you don't have the discs you will need to contact the manufacturer (Toshiba) and order a new set of the discs.

Another option would be to take it to your local repair store and find out if they have any OEM discs they can use to reinstall Windows for you.

Hope this helps :)

Hard drive switching (dead one to new one)


Your computer comes with an Sata hard drive. I am guessing that you have purchased a IDE one. If sio , return the IDE drive in exchange for an Sata one. He is the manufactures web site for your machine:

IF the sandisk is not formatted as Fat32 then the new PS3s will not recognize it. To format to fat32 follow these steps:
1. Transfer all the data onto a PC or another thumb drive.

2. go to START, CONTROL PANEL, ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS, COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, and select DISK MANAGER on the left hand side options. Select the external drive and read the "File System" type. If it says "NTFS", right click the disk and select "Delete Partition".

3. Reformat the drive as FAT32

4. Once you are SURE the partition is FAT32, open "My Computer" and double-click on your empty external hard drive. Now, you will want to create a folder system identical to that on the Playstation 3. Right click to create a new folder and name the first folder "Photo". Do this for "Music", "Video" and "Game". When you are finished, you should have 4 folders total in the hard drive. Each folder should (at this point) be empty.

5. Now transfer your saved information into the correct folders, safely remove the drive, and you are ready to go.

MoBo Replacement


did you go into the new bios and check to make sure you have the hard drive setting on auto, then check your boot order that the drive is first to boot., if that doesnt work create a floppy boot disk (google it) and see if you see the hard drive when you do that.
