Im just wondering why i might need a slave drive, i have a 80 gig master and a spare 80g drive should i put them both in or does it realy matter


slave drive is very handy in backup files you can store data and other software and drivers. it does matter becouse master drive always has the operating system that the virus and error always happen. hard drive with IDE connector has two jumper setting slave and master. connected to IDE cable. sata disk has no master slave..

I wish to use the seagate hardrive to back up music on a brennan jb7 i am having problems formatting the seagate to fat32


Im not sure why you want Fat32 but with that old file system a partitition cant be larger than 32GB otherwise it wont let you format with Fat32. You can create as many partitions as you like maybe have some Fat32 and some NTFS if you like. Just typy in disk management where you normally do a search or run with XP and that will let you organise all of your partitions. Cheers and please vote

sounds like a software problem, dont know if there is an update possible, but you can try this:

take out the drive, connect it to a pc, copy all data from both partitions to your pc, format tascam driver to one partition and copy all music from pc back to drive ;)

this will definetily help, thou you dont have the problem reading two partitions.

80gigs partition then reformatted and displays only 31gigs


If there are files on the drive that you need to recover, then do not format it. It sounds as though the computer that you put the drive into has an issue where the bios perhaps does recognize the drive correctly. Perhaps that can be corrected by updating the bios in the computer, and trying the drive again. Or you may want to put it back into the original computer, back up the files to other media, and then put the drive in the computer and re-partition.

What does the FDISK - "DISPLAY PARTITION INFORMATION" utility report? Do you have a copy of FDISK? If the partitoins in FDISK add up correctly, then it could just be that the data is corrupt, and windows is just unable to read. If that's the case, you should try a recovery application to restore your data..

Being able to use disk manager on a second IDE drive


Did you connect it to a spare IDE cable or an existing cable which was connected to the first hard disk or CD Drive?

Is BIOS able to recognize it? Go to the BIOS settings and check.

But since you are able to see it in the disk manager, it should be connected okay.

This is a new drive right? So what is the problem in deleting the existing partition and recreating it? BTW, what is the partition size?
