I know there is data on my phr-250a mcally external hard drive but it's showing empty folder

Leave it connected to your computer and try a restart.
If the folder is still showing as empty, power down the computer then disconnect the external drive.
Power on the computer and connect the external hard drive to a different usb port.
I had this exact problem with a 1000 Gb external drive that was full of movies and music. I thought it had all been lost .. After 2-3 days and repeated attempts of restarts and power-downs/different usb ports it suddenly was recognised again and has worked perfectly since

Try a hard reset. Make sure all the cables are plugged in the drive. Simply shut down the computer then unplug from the wall. Push in the power button until it flashes then plug it back in again and restart the computer this will reset everything to default startup. Also if this does not work then go into the BIOS and set computer to default settings that are failsafe. If this does not work click on F8 go into the safe mode and see if the hard drive is there.

If not go and turn off the machine then open the box and pull the drives cable and power supply restart the machine then shut it down again and plug the drive back in with the computer off and hook the power supply cable back up. Plug the computer back in and restart if you get a blue screen at the start your drive is most likely faulty and you will need to do another re-install. If that does not work then the drive is faulty and needs to be replaced. I hope this assisted you, thanks for using FixYa for your questions. Be sure to comment on my fix if you fell like it. John

try to disable auto-restart option to try to get the blue screen details (STOP) code as this can help in pinpointing the fault. If you are using Windows, while the system is restarting, tap the F8 key a few times to enter the Advanced Options menu and select the option to disable auto-restart. Additional things to try, remove and reconnect the hard disk, memory and any other power and data connections and expansion devices to the system.

Set-up recognize my hdd but windows doesn't

Windows uses NTFS file system.

you need to enter a boot disk/recovery disk/windows xp disk into your CD drive and in the system BIOS select the CD drive to boot first. Once the CD has loaded you can re-format your HDD to NTFS and re-install windows

You will, however loose all your data but your HDD will function again with windows

To uninstall a device
  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. Double-click the type of device that you want to uninstall.
  3. Right-click the specific device you want, and then click Uninstall. You can also double-click the device, and then on the Driver tab, click Uninstall.
  4. In the Confirm Device Removal page, select Delete the driver software for this device if you also want to remove the device driver package from the driver store. .
    The Delete the driver software for this device option removes the package from the driver store. It does not remove the currently installed driver for any other operational devices that use the same driver. If you remove the driver from the store, and the device is connected to the computer again, Windows must search for a copy of the driver package in the standard search locations, including possibly prompting the user for media. This option is the equivalent of running the command: pnputil -d -f <package.inf>. For more information, see Remove a Driver Package from the Driver Store.
  5. Click OK to complete the uninstall process.
  6. When the uninstall process is complete, unplug the device from the computer.
    If you are prompted to restart the computer, the removal is not completed and the device might continue to function until the computer is restarted.
Reinstall a Plug and Play device Reinstall a device only if it is working improperly or it has stopped working altogether. Before you reinstall a device, try to restart your computer and check the device to determine whether it is functioning properly. If it is not, try reinstalling the device.
To reinstall a Plug and Play device
  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. Follow the instructions in the preceding procedure to uninstall the device.
  3. If you are prompted to restart the computer, follow these steps:
    • Plug in the device and then restart the computer. The device will be detected and reinstalled after Windows restarts.
    • Follow any instructions on-screen to complete installation.
  4. If you are not prompted to restart the computer, follow these steps:
    • In Device Manager, in the Action menu, click Scan for hardware changes.
    • Follow the instructions on the screen.

SanDisk cruzer TITANIUM 2.0GB

your computer's BIOS is not compatible with the USB device that you are using. This had happened to me too.

The only solution is to get your BIOS flashed. This requires special technical skills so it is recommended for advanced users only.

Another costly solution is to change your motherboard.
