Question about Computers & Internet
I recently bought a Seagate Barracuda 3TB. I have a Asus P5K and use windows XP. I tried Seagate DiscWizard, but it doesn't recognise the new harddisk as a 3TB drive. When I start the extended capacity manager, the program replies with: the entire space is accessible: there are no Seagate/Maxtor hard discs with MBR partition style larger than 2 TB in your system or sector's size on your disc is larger than 512 KB. All hard drives can be managed by Add New Disc tool. What do I have to do to fix this?

You cannot use more than 2TB of volume in WIN XP. As it does not support GPT initialisation, without it you cannot use the hardrive. More information can be found on this link. support microsoft com

You should try to delete the partition in the Transcend memory stick and creat a new partition. You should copy any files that you need off this memory device before you re-partition it because you will lose all the data that is stored on the device.
Go to the Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Magament.
Scroll down until you see your removeable device the 16Gb memory device, click once on this, It may not show it as Healthy.
Right click in this disk (make sure you do not select the C drive) and click on Delete Partition to remove the partition.
Right click on this unpartition drive and Create a partition.
You may not have to format this partition, it should now show this as a healthy drive.
Exit out of Disk/computer Management and Control Panel.
The USB drive should now function normally.

Here is the Procedure for Connecting External Drives to Computer.Several brands of computer does not recognise external drives when connected to USB expansion slots,and Slots of front panel,So connect your Ext HDD to back side onboard Slots.Because there is a lack off USB power surge voltage to detect a large capacity exteral drives.Some time it is does not recognise by many computers,when USB power surge voltage is low.

try inserting the disc then restart your pc. as soon as you see the Dell logo, press F12 several times. It will lead you to the advance boot options. highlight cd/dvd drive using your up / down arrow key, then press enter to continue. the OS cd should load fine.

Hi, Thanks for using fixya.
First unplug any other USB devices / hubs from your computer. Reboot the computer with the transcent in a usb port. Check to see if you can use it when it boots back up.
If not :
1. Right click on My Computer choose manage. On the left side make sure storage is expanded double click disk management on the left upper side see if transcent is listed.
2. If it is on the lower part find your transcent right click on it choose change drive letter and paths. Click on change, you will see a drop down arrow click that choose the first available letter, Now click on change. Open My Computer see if it is now listed.
3. Reboot your computer when it comes back,open My Computer see if it is now listed.
I will take a guess and sday your device maybe defective meaning no way to recover your files.
