Backup hdd to external hd


DVD recorders are usually not the first selection for backup of data files. you may be better off with a 1 Tbyte external drive, which is suited for that purpose. Even though the DVD drive has the capacity, there are usually formatting issues with data files being burned to a DVD recorder.

Cant get the buffalo to load, and i cant find the setup to get to my music and photos if you can help .thank you


Hi there.

When it is plugged into your PC via USB and you go to "My Computer", does it recognise it? If not first try using another USB port. Another thing to try is see if you can get hold of another USB to external hard drive connector. Your current cable may be faulty. If you can see the drive in "My Computer" and when you click on it you get a message saying something about the drive not being formatted and prompting you to format then this means that the drive has failed and needs to be reformatted. You may or may not be able to recover your files in this case unless you take the drive to someone local that does data recoveries. i.e. a local PC store.

Go through the above solutions and let me know how it goes. Please feel free to ask any further related questions or clarifications.

How do you use it?


connect the device using as usb cable to your pc, it will start working and the pc should recognise it as a new hard drive. you can save data to it and from it like a regular harddrive.
if you have any prolbem first time you may need to format the drive.
only remove it when data has stoppped being transfered to or from it.
once removed the data put on it is still there and can be move from it to any other device that accepts the drive and the data formats.

I hope this was helpful

My usb stick needs to be formatted for pc but i cant


you can try format recovery software like asoftech data recovery. You can see
Recover formatted files
It tells the steps how to perform format recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the usb drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the usb drive and recover your files.

Seagate 750GB usb HDD asks to format,when opening by double click


The disk is either damaged or the USB interface is damaged.
1) You could try opening the external case and connect the disk to your computer directly (Using IDE/S-ATA cables)
2) Format the HD and use data recovery software/service.

USB IOGEAR not recognise


Most portable HDDs show up without drivers being required, so, assuming other drives or USB devices show up the general assumption is that either the circuit board in the enclosure has failed or the HDD has failed.

Assuming it doesn't work on other PCs and that other USB devices do, take the external drive to your local computer shop and ask to have the drive tested and moved into a new enclosure. If the drive is OK then the people at the computer store can simply transfer the drive into a new enclosure and it will work. If it fails testing you will likely need to send the drive to a Pro, I would recommend Armor-IT Data Recovery(listed in the FixYa directory).

You can swap the enclosures yourself if you have basic hand tools and are feeling handy but it might be nice to have the techs at the local shop test the drive.

If you need any further instructions add a comment on this post and included the make and model# of the failed external drive and I will offer further assistance.


Hope this Helps FixYa,


Chris

You don' t say what OS or even type of computer (PC, Mac, Windows XP, 98, vista etc) you are running, or whether the drive has been used before. If it's a new drive then it probably needs formatting, so you can allow the OS to do that. If it contains data that you need then DO NOT allow the OS to format it.

If you know it is formatted & contains data, then it sounds like the OS is not recognising the format. Windows 98 typically won't recognise NTFS disks formatted on Windows XP for example or Linux Ext3/4 format disks won't be recognised by Windows. In the latter case, you can download a free driver which will do that for you - google Ext 4 and Windows.
