Question about Toshiba (HDD2188) 80 GB Hard Drive
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?

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

Creating partitions on USB drives is useful for larger drives or for keeping data organized.
It also allows one drive to be used for multiple purposes, such as having a partition to store data that is accessed often and another partition for backup.
With the new ReadyBoost feature of Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems, as well as with various server operating systems, you can create a partition on many external drives to use for a virtual memory swap file location, speeding up the computer for many memory-intensive tasks or for systems that are short on RAM.
Back up any data currently located on the drive prior to creating, deleting or changing partition size or otherwise attempting to configure the USB drive.
Open "Computer Management" under the "Administrative Tools" section of the Control Panel. Click on "Disk Management" to display a list of drives and their current partitions.
Right-click on the drive and choose "Extend Volume" to make the partition larger using available space on the drive; "Shrink Volume" to reduce the size of the partition, freeing up space on the drive; or "Delete Partition" to remove all partition information and to create fresh partitions on the drive.
Right-click on the free space on the drive and choose "New Simple Volume" if the existing partition has been deleted.
Click "Next" and then enter the desired size of the first volume on this disk.
Choose to assign a drive letter, assign the partition to its own folder on an NTFS volume or not to assign a letter or assign the partition to a folder if the drive is going to be used on a different system.
Click "Next" to display the format dialog screen and choose to format the drive using the default settings.
Give the volume a name and click "Next" again to review all of the chosen settings.
Then click on "Finish" to begin the format process.
Repeat the partition creation steps for as many new partitions as are desired on the drive.
Hope this helps
