You'd better never do such improper operations again.
But, right now, in order to get back your data, you are supposed to act carefully as below:
1). Do not format this hard drive in case that anything important will lose at the same time.
2). Do not add any new file on this hard drive in case that anything new would rewrite your original data.
3). Do not randomly select a hard drive data recovery program. In your case, an efficient data recovery program always means a lot. Therefore, you can try to apply an unformatted drive data recovery freeware to get back your player data successfully:

4). Do not save the restored data on the same drive in case of data recovery failure.
5). Do not forget to format this drive after the data recovery process so that you can check whether this "not formatted error" problem could be resolved.
Note: Never try to save everything important on only one hard drive next time.

SOURCE: can not access my hard disk

Thanks for the prompt reply. Your external hard drive enclosure has one of three cable types to connect to your laptop. Is that USB, Firewiare or eSATA?

You have XP or Vista on your Laptop?

When you connect your external enclosure to your laptop you should hear a tone indicating Windows has recognized a new external storage device. Is this not happening, first of all?

So, give me the cable type used to connect to your laptop and whether Windows recognizes your external storage device with a tone and Alert Pop Up, and then Windows wants to format it because its not seeing the hard drive correctly?

Thanks,
Worldvet

SOURCE: It keeps asking me to format to use the drive

Some times ago I faced problem like this. I discussed with an expert from local market about it On his suggestion I arranged an other hard disk and connected my PC. Note that I was already using two hard disk one as a master, 2nd for slave and the third one of same size of defective hard disk. I installed hard disk migration software on the master. I successfully copied all data on the secondary master. There is no need to make same partitions. The software will automatically make same copy of the disk to the destination disk including equal partions if they exists. Remember you have connect three hard disk with the same PC. I can arrange address of the software for you. Feel free to mail me at:

SOURCE: how to open without format when i open my drive it displayed do u want to format if i foramt my drive i will lose my data pls tell me how to open it without format

Windows has found a problem with the F.A.T. (File allocation table), thus windows wants to format the drive. Other Dos mode commands like FIXMBR, (fix master boot record) may make retrieving your data impossible.
There is a way to get around this with out loosing all your data.
Before we get started I need you to check the data cable & power cable connected to the drive. Unplug the power cord from the PC. Open your case. Disconnect the power cable & data cable from the drive. Than re-connect the power cable & data cable, follow the data cable to the motherboard & check it's connection.
(By doing this you are making sure the cables are fully connected, sometimes they come loose but you can't tell just by looking at them). Put your case back together & plug in the power cord.
Load your windows CD into CD-ROM. Start up your system & at the same time press the F8 key on your keyboard every two seconds. A screen like the one below will load;

9bfe434.jpg
Choose your CD-ROM with windows in it.
Windows will see you have a version installed & it will give you other options. Read the screen prompts. You want to create a partition within the free space of your drive. Follow windows instructions. Windows will creating a new partition . Install windows into that new partition. (This will be a full install). Your old windows will not load.
The data within your old partition will not be deleted!
When you have finished installing windows update it. Install motherboard drivers, printer drivers & programs ect. When finished you can now copy folder & data to the new windows. (All this will take time). Most data will be located in folder shown below. You can copy & past the data / folders from the old partition to the new windows;
C:Documents and Settings User nameApplication DataMicrosoftAddress Book
C:Documents and Settings User nameDesktop
C:Documents and Settings User nameFavorites
C:Documents and Settings User nameLocal SettingsIdentities
C:Documents and Settings User nameMy Documents
Data from any program you may have installed.

When you are 100% sure you have recovered all your data, you can delete the old partition through windows disk management. How to run disk management?
Click the start button & click Run. Type, diskmgmt.msc into the run window & click ok. Within in disk management you'll see all partitions on your hard drive, you'll also see your CD-ROM & any other drives What was once your C: drive will most likely be labeled to another letter. To find your old windows right click on a drive within disk management & click open. (Make sure you do not delete the wrong partition / Windows).
To delete the old partition right click on the old partition & click, Delete Partition. Close all opened windows & restart. Windows will automatically add the drive space to your new partition.
Operation complete.

Good luck!
Mike

SOURCE: i have a sandisk cruzer

You may have formatted the drive in NTFS instead of FAT32. if its an old version of Xp or Win98 then it may need to be formatted in FAT32. If its windows 7 then it must be in NTFS. in My computer right click on the icon for the drive and left click on format. You should see the options for with type of file system you want.

Good luck

Don't be panic. you can try some data recovery software. You can see
http://download.cnet.com/Asoftech-Data-Recovery/3000-2248_4-75328850.html?part=dl-75328850&subj=dl&tag=button
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the memory card and recover your files.

DVD LG SATA GH22NS30 can read Avi video files that were burnt (using Nero Burning ROM) on DVD-R 52X and 16X, but not on DVD-R 8X.


This isn't particularly uncommon on the hardware or software side. Some brands just don't particularly play with all formats on all speeds of media or all software and yes, sometimes it will burn but not play back. You can try to update your drivers but there's no guarantee that will work, but it's one of the few alternatives you have. If the recording speed and playback is that much of a concern, consider getting a new one from a different manufacturer.
You didn't mention what version of Nero you are using nor did you mention your Operating System is. These are important factors to consider as well. I had the full version of Nero 6 and I tried to run it on my Vista SP2 system. It didn't like it at all so now I just use the OEM version that came with burner when I bought the computer in 2009. You might want to try another burning software just to see if there's a difference.

Eject dvd doesn'start recording


This sometimes happens when a disk is not formatted prior to recording .. the DVD is telling you it cant record on it at the time you want because it would have to format first and then start recording so missing the times you have set .
Best thing to do is use re- recordable discs only and format prior to use then the dvd should start straight away .
If not then the set has a serious read problem and requires looking at by a qualified engineer ... Regards Vortash
