Cannot access my external E drive

When I try getting into my Local Disk (E:) I get
WDWD Pas.spo 12/24/2048 12:00am
THUMBS. D 360,498kb 10/20/2008 12:00am

When I click on WDWD Pas.spo I receive the following error message:

E:\WDWD Pas.spo refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the internet or your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been moved to a different location.

This drive worked fine till 9:30pm on Sunday evening. When I went to use it on MOnday morning I was unable to call the drive up.

Is it possible to recover the data on the drive?

Thank You

My ASUS Z99E laptop cannot access winXP


Try to access the BIOS "F2" Key, Go to the BOOT Section, set the 1st Boot device to DVD / CD Rom. Press "F10" Save and Exit. If it fails again, re-enter the BIOS. Then make sure the drive is set to IDE and not ACHI. press "F10" save and exit the BIOS. If that fails then select in the BIOS Load Setup Defaults, and re-select the boot device to DVD/ CD Rom.

If all fails, you have to open the side or bottom cover to remove the HDD - Hard Disk Drive, Connect it to a Stand alone pc via the SATA Cable or External Device (Works as USB) then you can either do an emergencey back-up, Format the drive through windows.

Hope it helps

I bought a new computer neither of them had enternal disk drives so i use this lg slim portabale dvd writer i lost my disk to insall the software where can i get it


If you just want to use the LG external drive, then it will work with your new laptop (I presume it is a USB external drive). You don't need any installation software, because your new laptop will detect it and install the driver automatically.

Download the GParted Live utility and the HP USB Format Tool via the links in Resources.

http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=5757&file=15&evp=fb0a8fee133295405b5af3205e8d2424

Insert your USB stick into the computer. Run HP USB Format Tool. Select your USB stick and then choose the FAT or FAT32 format options. Click "Start."


Extract the files from the GParted Live zip file. Select the USB stick as the destination.


Open a file browser and navigate to the USB stick. Select "utils" > "win32" > "makeboot.bat." Double click on "makeboot.bat." Enter "Y" when prompted.


Power off your computer leaving the USB stick inserted.


Connect your portable hard drive to another USB port.

Power on the computer and quickly press "F8" through "F12" to access your boot menu.


Check your computer or motherboard manual for the exact keystroke.

Select the USB stick as your boot source and press "Enter." Allow the Gparted GUI to start.


Select the external portable hard disk drive. Click "Partition" on the menu bar.

Hover over "Format to" and select "NTSF."


If you are unable to create or format the partition, select delete partition.

This will erase all data on the external hard drive. Confirm partition deletion. Select the external drive again. Click "Partition" and hover over "Format to" then select "NTSF."

HOW TO RESTORE FACTORY DEFAULT SETTING MY TOSHIBA SATELLITE L670D WINDOWS 7, KINDLY HELP ME, I TRY USING RECOVERY DISC BUT IT NOT WORK.


Hello,

If my answer has helped you today please offer four thumbs up as thanks!

Take account of any files or programs you still want to use after the Toshiba laptop is restored back to its factory settings. Transfer the files to a backup location, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive.


Restart the Toshiba Satellite laptop's operating system. Wait for the Toshiba logo to appear on the screen.


Press the key that brings up the hard drive disk utility menu. Depending on the specific model of your Toshiba Satellite laptop, the key will either be "0," "F1," or "F8."


Press "1" or click "Restore Original Factory Image." Click "Yes." Select "Next" to begin the restoration process.


Restart the Toshiba laptop computer when the restoration process finishes running. Follow the prompts that appear on the screen to set up the laptop's date, time and language settings.


Transfer the backup copies of the data you saved earlier back to the Toshiba's hard drive. Re-install any programs you need, such as your software firewall or anti-virus tool.

If my answer has helped you today please offer four thumbs up as thanks!

Bought a new computer and want to use usb 3g adapter on new computer. I think I need to install software, however there is no disk drive as it is a netbook


Dear johnls,
Try to copy the installation CD to a flashdisk the run the installation from flashdisk when you connect it via USB jack on your netbook.
Or try to connect the external Optic Drive (CD/DVD ROM), wait until the netbook complete the installation of your optic drive. Restart your netbook with external CD ROM connected via USB jack, then run the 3G installation from your External CD ROM.

GoodLuck!

Best regards,

Hp 2700 hard disk is bad . need to recover files and data . please solve


If you have no access then your only option may be sending the drive to a data retrieval service. This is not cheap and not an overnight thing.

If you know a brave local techy who knows his stuff he could swap the control boards inside the drive with the ones from a identical working drive.

External hard drive wrong power supply was plugged in


The power circuits in the external hard drive enclosure may have burnt out or the fuse may have blown. Its unlikely your hard-disk is itself damaged.
You may remove the actual hard-disk from the enclosure and put it in another and access the data.
All the best!

Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini 250GB External Drive Does not show up on my computer


I have a Onetouch Mini 4, operating fine on two computers with Windows XP but couldn't get it working on Windows 7. I plugged it in and it would be recognized but a message would come up saying there were errors and to scan. Tried scanning and not scanning and couldn't get the drive to work. If I tried to open it would give me the "access denied". I couldn't get to a security tab from a folder as none of them were working.
It ended up that I wasn't listed as an owner nor had any permissions so I needed to be added to the device.

Here is what I did -

System, device manager, disk drives, right click on onetouch, properties, volumes, populate, the select on touch volume, properties, security, advanced, change permissions, add, typed in my user name - hit checked names (it fixed the format), then hit ok.



Then make sure you set the permissions for all the users.
