Cannot get drive to give me the screen to have it copy my compute

Bought the 320 from the Geek Squad guy. He downloaded one computer. I have tried to use it on the second one (Vista) and get nothing. How do I back up files on multiple computers and transfer files between computers. I am helpless!!

You can use the same harddrive between multiple computers only if they are all formated with the same file structure, like ntsf for whatever it is called. You get my meaning though. I found this out threw trial and error.

Find a computer that can fit your disk, and copy the files from the disk onto a CD-recordable disk.
Then, put the newly-recorded CD into your iMac's CD-drive.

Unable to read data on drive


Hi Franoisebis,

I can help you with that, you will need a data recovery pro to attempt to retrieve your data. Unfortunately Geek Squad really isn't equipped to do that. If you reply with your Country, State and City I will direct you to an appropriate Pro nearest your location.

How to extact the data off the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB HD


if its your motherboard that crashed then ther is no problem with your hard disk. connect your hard disk to any other computer and you can access all the files in it.
if it is your harddsik that crashed then try recovery utilities like western digital data storege manger or any other disk recovery tool available for free. if still it fails then you can recover your data if you hand over your hard disk to the nearest service centre. but recover from a hard disk only if its very valuable. thay will charge you per MB of data recovered

Maxtor 320 usage instructions


The new hard drive should be showing up for you in "My Computer". If it's showing up there you can just start copying files onto it.
