Hi Fixya,We have a desktop pc running windows xp and it does not seem to boot up,the screen stays blank but it does tell us there is no signal to it.I suspect the hard drive has got corrupted somehow.Also...

Hello miriamhyman
Extract the corrupted HDD out of your machine and place it in a external usb box .
Install a new hdd inside your computer . You will have to reinstall Windows XP but you can't find it any more at Microsoft's . Here is a place where you can still buy it :
or buy a Windows 7 install disc ( the box contains two discs , one for 32-bit systems , the other for 64-bit . One of them will surely be compatible with your BIOS ) . Once done , connect your old hdd to the a USB port of your machine . You will be able to retrieve all your files but you will have to reinstall the programs .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

When I plunged in FANTOM firewire and USB external HD (I only use the USB) at windows start it said it wanted to (blue screen) check drive for errors. I agreed and it stopped half way at 41% and did not go...

It is entirely possible that your external hard drive is failing. I would recommend downloading Seatools for Windows (link below) and run extended hard drive test on it. Chances are if it is failing, it still recognizes within the system, but it is not readable enough for windows to display it and allow you to browse.

Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Hallo, I have a LaCie Grand 1 TP external harddrive. I cant work in mine hard drive. I cant throw anything away i cant rename documents or put new ones on it. Some background info A few months...

you may face this issue because of differences between mac and windows file systems/partition table and security attributes that may disallow any further changes.

1-try to connect you HDD to a windows Computer and Backup all your files before loses any data(use more newer version of windows like windows 10 build 1709 windows XP is old/out of services and has many problems)
2-after a full backup in windows try to connect your HDD to your mac and format it via your MacBook
3- after formatting your HDD try to reconnect your HDD to windows and copy your files to HDD(windows has a compatible file systems that could read/allow/write mac file systems/partition and its attributes)

System backup

depending on what drive it is. Let's say it's a western digital, They all have software on there websites to copy a drive to a new drive. in westerd digitals case it would be and in the support downloads section you would find the software.

You would have to hook up both drives and tell it which you drive you want to copy from (old drive) and to (new drive)

What should I copy/import from old HDD to rebuild all MS Outlook?

I am not sure whether you are going to have those, any way look for windows and program files, they may contain its settings and more thing if you had concept of "server routing path", then don't worry specify your "routing path" to access the previous one and check it your contacts regarding existence and have fine

My new portable hdd is not getting detected on my xp

Your USB ports may be version 1.1

You need a USB "Y" cable.
The USB Y cable uses two USB ports on your laptop and the third plugs into the external HDD.

Check RadioShack or maybe the vendor has a USB Y cable.

This will work!

Fantom Drive TFDU16072A Error

2009 06 30 - I just had a similar problem. The Fantom external drive was working fine, but I had to shut down due to a thunderstorm. When I restarted the PC, the drive was not showing up. WHAT I FOUND: First, I didn't find this solution anywhere - everything seemed to point to a new install (or at least how to reformat and start over.) BUT, I right clicked on Computer, Manage, Disk Management - it still didn't show. On the right, under More Actions, I clicked 'rescan disks'. Now it shows up! And all of my data is right there. Whew!
