HDD2188 cannot display its volume

My usb harddisk which I have partitioned it into 2 cannot display the volume after I reinstalled my Windows XP with service pack 2. How will I be able to see these volumes I have in my USB HDD2188 now? My laptop is Toshiba Tekra. I already installed my usb drive but why is it my USB HDD cannot be browsed?

    Good idea to format a harddisk via disk managment. Yes, my USB 2.0 HDD (Toshiba) 80Gb is new and should be plug and play right? Meaning, once it was inserted on a usb port the windows should show a drive and be able to format it. But the problem was that the windows do not show any drive for it. So formatting the drive cannot be possible. There should be drive first before to format.

Hi, You might need to format them. Right click on MY COMPUTER, select MANAGE. Go to DISK MANAGEMENT, then to the right pane of the window, go to the usb drive and format each partition. This is only if your hard drive is new and has no data. If it has data, then it's a different problem and solution altogether. Thanks, Lolita

Sir, i have hp mini 210-1000 laptop without cd/dvd. while installing windows xp i have deleted the partitions & tried to install xp from usb but failed. please help me to install windows xp .


Check the BIOS to see if you can make the USB as the first boot device, if you can then you will be able to install XP from the USB flash memory stick.
The reason why your XP installation failed is because in most older laptops, the USB port does not work until Windows XP has been installed.
Your hard disk may have an Windows XP install partition that you can access to reinstall Windows, provided you have not deleted this partition.

To create a recovery partition in harddisk


Unfortunately the Recovery partition could not be reacreated manually. But you can recover it by using the Y410 Recovery Disc but that means reinstalling everything and youll end up with windows vista again. You can reinstall XP but do not delete the partition that usually has 10-15GB of space because that is the hidden partition for the recovery. You can call 18774536686. If your computer is out of warranty, it would only cost you 59$ for the recovery disc

There maybe a wiring connection problem with your harddisk drive to your motherboard. Check the power cord connection and also the connection to the motherboard. Try reconnecting the cords.

Disk partition


My preferred solution is GParted. You can download this LiveCD and boot from it. The interface is fairly simple to understand. NOTE: It is important that after you resize a Windows partition you boot it up right away and allow it to scan the disk.

HDD Reformatting


why not reinstall sp3 again for windows xp if it freezes then it might be looking for files that don't exist anymore. If the virus attatched itself to your files they may have been removed when you ran your virus software. you don't need to format to reload windows. Just simply do a clean reinstall on C drive.

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
