Normally you dont need any software to install the HD if its a newer computer (last couple of years) just check your jumper settings, it should show you on the HD where to put the jumper for master / slave.

If your putting it in as a second HD for more space you will want to put the jumper on the back of the drive to "slave" and attach it to the same cable as the hard drive in your computer already.

Factory back-up discs and recovery discs are intended to repair defective installations or to kick-start an installation that refuses to start so it is unsurprising they will only go so far.

Your system disc might be defective. This is a problem I have had with XP in the past. It is possible your CD/DVD drive has a dusty lens and is unable to read the disc properly or perhaps the new hard drive has a problem.

I suggest you instal the new hard drive as a slave in another computer and format it and run the chkdsk utility. If all is well reinstal in your computer.

Take a close look at your system disc checking for flaws and perhaps put a lens cleaning disc in your CD/DVD reader before trying again.

Not working


As of October 1st 2009, SanDisk started shipping the Cruzer Micro (SDCZ6-XXX) product line without the U3 software pre-installed on the device.

During the transition period, there may have been a small number of devices that were packaged in older packaging that states the device includes the U3 software. If you purchased one of these devices and would like to use the U3 software, please download and install it.

The computer don't read it. say that he need the cd.


Here is a link to a SanDisk Support Page that may help you:

http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10/kw/SDCZ6/r_id/101834

If you try the above fix and it does not work, remove the Cruzer Flash Drive and then restart your computer. Once the computer boots back up, plug the Cruzer Flash Drive back into the USB port on your compuer (You can try different USB ports on your PC). It should detect the device and work.

I hope this helps! If it does, please be sure to leave me a positive rating/feedback. I'd really appreciate it!

Computer doesn't recognize hard drive


Basic Troubleshooting:

-Check all connections (Ethernet, Power, USB, etc)
-Install the appropriate driver for the device, usually included on a CD
-Double Check compatibility with your system (system requirements usually on packaging of product)
-If you haven't rebooted since you set it up, then reboot, this fixes a lot of things
-Try the product on another computer
-Try different cables/ports on the comptuer.

If nothing works, then send it in if it's under warranty or contact a professional service.

I lost my cd rom to install it.. how can i get it to work without the cd?


Your BIOS software will recognize your hard drive. once installed.

i wouldn't worry about any disc. j
ust install it and the if you need more help you can ask again.
Since after you install the hard-drive, you will have to reinstall every program including the operating system.

I just bought a Moving Star external hard drive for my Mac laptop. It came with a driver installation disc, but the CD is too small and wont be taken in by my disc drive. I am afraid to put the install...


I would be tempted to format the drive using the disk utility whch can be found under applications and then utilities once opened choose your drive in the left hand window and the on the right hand side click on erase. Choose your volume format and name and then erase. Hope this helps.

No setup disc in package


Most external drives to not need installation discs. They are driven via USB, which Windows has built-in support for.

Any software that comes with an external drive is usually S.M.A.R.T. drive software or other "disk utilities", neither of which you have to have in order to use the drive.

Plug it in and go :)

Bought NEW MAXTOR ONETOUCH III (No software included???)


Tell Rey Barcelo that the Installation software is on the hard disk
inside of his Maxtor OT Mini III 80 GB. There is no physical CD.
It's all on the hard drive inside of the device. I had my computer
expert look at it and now the device is working normally.
A lot of Kudos to you for steering me in that direction.

If you look at the site carefully you will see a small asterisk near the bottom that says * Windows2000/XP compatible. This seems to apply to several of the available downloads.
