Try deleting any partitions on the drive by using Control panel, administrative tools, computer management, disk management. now highlight the drive and right click and click on delete partition. Now create a new partition and see if it will do a full format on it. if not then its stuffed. you have no choice but to buy another drive.

Hi there,
If you're using a desktop try checking the speed of your USB thru bios setup. Here's a sample below, Change fullSpeed to HiSpeed.
1. To access bios setup, press Delete on your keyboard. 2. Look for the USB configuration. 3. Just change the settings on USB Controller Mode nothing follows. 4. Save and exit. pcsyke_53.jpg

Hopefully this Helps. Thank you for posting.

My Samsung M2 PORTABLE 750GB USB20 HARD DRIVE giveing me message says thei is a write delayed


This happens when there is a disconnect of the usb interface or if the drive stops spinning. You either have a failing hard drive a failing usb enclosure or a usb issue with your computer. First thing is to plug the drive in to another computer to determine if this is a usb issue. If the problem persists then it is the circuitry in the enclosure or the hard drive. You may be able to install the drive into a new enclosure and if it works that was the problem, if not than you have a failing hard drive.

Broken mini usb contection


If your talking about the cable, replace the cable. If your talking about on the external hard drive, either replace the drive if it's under warranty or go buy a new external hard drive enclosure, open the samsung HDD, put the drive in the new enclosure. Opening the enclosure will typically void the warranty.

Windows is unable to read the usb


When you formatted the drive for the Mac, you probably used the HFS format. Windows can only read NTFS or FAT formatted drives. You will need to reformat your external drive again. If you use a FAT32 format, all computers will be able to read the drive (Windows, UNIX and Mac - anyway). Note: the FAT32 option does limit the number of files in each directory and the maximum file size.

First back up any files that you have put on the external drive to another disc (your computer's hard disc, for example).
If you are using the M2 external disc for Time Machine backups, you should partition the drive into two sections. Format one to the FAT32 and the other to HFS.

The Disc Utility in OSX can repartition the drive and reformat it. However, sometimes it doesn't correctly format the new partitions. You may need to do some extra step, see http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~pcarbo/macnexstar.html for one set of reformatting steps. In Windows, there is a similar utitily in the Disk Management Control Panel. (Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Create and format hard disk partitions (Windows 7)) You can only format the disc to FAT or NTFS with the Windows utility.

Some third-party software is available for changing the partitions on a hard drive formatted for Windows use without losing the data on the disc. I do not know if similar programs exist for OSX.

Some versions of Unix have gparted which will also repartion and reformat a hard disc but can't keep the original data on the drive. (I've used the Windows and Unix partition managers, including Paragon Partition Manager which let me keep my original Windows data on the drive.)

I hope this helps.

Hello, I formatted my external hard drive Samsung G2 HX-MU050DC and i lost the drivers. I can not find drivers. Can you help me please? Because i can no longer read the files that are on it. Thank you...


According to the microsoft site your external hard drive which is the Samsung G2 HX-MU050DC doesn't need any additional software it is automatically installed when connected..Maybe try to connect it to other USB port I preferred you connect it at the back of your CPU..If this doesn't work try to connect your external hard drive to other computer if it still doesn't work. sad to say but the problem is your external hard drive..
