There is software or folder to password option.
The software might cost you.
Click start click on computer to open you should your drives
C: usually your hard drive D: or E: your cd/dvd drives if you have 2 and your usb drive possibly E:or F:
Click on your usb drive right click in it select new folder option you can name it
Then put all files or data you want to password protect
Right click on the folder select properties then click sharing tab tick in make this folder private box
Another message might appear you do not have a password on this account click yes
User and password account will open for you to put in place a password
This might vary depending on your operating system in XP
Select properties then security tab at learn about access controls at the bottom of the box
Also another option to change permissions click edit
Then click deny then click apply

My External Hard Drive is asking me to format. Why is it and i currently have information on my external hard drive.


I guess you are using it thru USB...
This is a general issue with all external devices connected thru USB, many times the USB reacts to an external device as though they dont exist.

The best solution is to shutdown the PC remove the device from the external USB port clean the connection, the USB cable connector, USB port etc and reconnect.

This situation could also happen if you have dropped the device, any little shake/**** could make changes to the internal system of the disk.

Try using a different USB cable to connect it to the PC

My personal experience is..... USB devices should be used sparingly and for things that are not critical like (MP3, mobile, camera etc) I rarely use external harddrive thru USB, never to store critical data.....an issue ever with the disk the data is almost gone unless it's recovered by an hardware expert after opening the drive and thru special system/data recovery devices.
The last option is to format it again, many times my MP3 player has been funny and gave me similar read issue and I had to format it many times to be read again by the PC, so i learnt a leason from that......never to connect a harddisk from USB, it's better to have larger harddisk inside the PC and use some DVD disks to carry your critical data to the place of work....(they cost less also) if they fail just throw them and use a new DVD disk

I want to load information onto the flash drive but I can't get past password, locking/unlocking and partitions.


When you insert it into the pc and the box opens asking what you want to do,just close the box,Then double click on My computer and you will see it listed as a drive,You can double click it and once it open,you can drag and drop anything you want on it or once you know the drive letter assigned to it,you can go to whatever file you want to store on it and just right click the file,click send to,and choose the drive.

Please take time to rate this a fixya

I forgot my password for my imation 512mb usb device. how do i disable the password to get back in?


To access the secure partition, you will need to remove the secure partition first by reformatting it. This action will cause any data stored on your drive to be lost but you will be able to set a new password and retransfer your data to the drive.

I purchased a Maxtor 3200 external (USB) drive. If I connect it before I boot up, my PC will not boot up. If I connect it after I boot up, Windows XP does not recognise it is there and will freeze after...


Hi,

First, you need to disable the boot from USB devices option from the BIOS. You can find it in the Main Menu, Advanced Menu or in the Boot Menu according to the type of BIOS you are using.

Ensure that you are connecting the device to the rear USB ports of the PC.

After that, please go to Disk Management.

Cick Start>Run and type in the folowing command to open the Disk Management Window.

DISKMGMT.MSC

Check if it is detected there.

If so right click on and select Create Partition.

After partioning it, you can format it.

Hope this helps!

Pat
