SOURCE: my external hard drive says you need to format the disk befor you

Download the BartPE bootable iso and burn it on to a CD:

http://www.download.com/BartPE-Bootable-Live-Windows-CD-DVD/3000-2094_4-10611131.html

It has some nice data recovery softwares. Boot using the CD and run the data recovery software(s) and you should mostly be able to get your data back - save it to your other hard disk.

You can also get some free software data recovery tools from:

You won't lose your data,

To save your data from a bad Wd Ebook you need to download UBUNTU and burn it to a cd. Boot from the cd. Do not install Ubuntu just click try it out. When it loads turn on your Ebook and iit should appear on the desktop. If not click the places tab on top and find it there. Right click the EBook and mount it. Now you have access to all the data on the ebook. Iy yoou have enugh space n your cpu hard drive save it there, if not you will need another surce large enought to copy the data to.. I have used this method to save many hard drives, flash drive and other unreadable media. if the drive is totally toast you are out of luck but this method works moost of the time. Any questions drop me an email.

SOURCE: "how do you open case ,ximeta ndu10 120 external hard drive"

On the plastic sides of the case, near the back, there are 2 holes - one on each side. Inside these holes are recessed plastic tabs. You should be able to look in the holes and see part of the tab.

They don't take much force, but if you insert a straightened paperclip or coat hanger, just enough to push the tabs a couple of millimeters, you can then slide the top half of the case forward and off.

SOURCE: Is it possible to open my Iomega Prestige 1 TB USB

Hi,

Yes it is possible but the Iomegas are difficult to open and you often snap the plastic retainers in the process. Given you can buy a !TB comlete for only about $20 more than buying the raw drive I suspect you would be better advised to simply replace the unit all together,

SOURCE: How to open case: Seagate ST3160203U2RK External Hard Drive ??

This is one of the mean tricks that the industry uses to discourage people from opening things and then totally ruining them.

What about getting yourself a 5-star-shaped screwdriver? Ask your hardware store guy.

Too expensive? Well - I have a lot of different simple slotted screwdrivers. Normally I find one that fits into 2 corners of these "miracle screws". If you don't have fitting one use a cheap one that is slightly too large to fit and grind it down just to size.

The same trick works with the other kind of "discouragement screws" that have ALMOST a normal slot --- but there's an elevation in the middle of it. A slot screwdriver with a ground-in **** in the middle (Dremel tools work fine) does the trick.

Replace hard drive motherboard


Before you start replacing drive you need to ask yourself if you are trying to replace a bad hard drive and just want to start with a clean install of the O.S. OR are you replacing your hard drive with a bigger one and wish to keep your installed programs, data and documents. If you want to keep your data and documents you need to know how to save the Files and folders on your computer to a CD, DVD or a USB hard drive. Just replacing the hardware involves unplugging all cables from computer after shutting it down. Then opening the case and unplugging the cables from the hard drive and then remove the screw(s) retaining the hard drive. Remove the old hard drive from the case and replace it with the new one, replace screws and plug cables back up watching that that the connectors are correctly aligned with the key(s) on the hard drive's sockets. Replacing the Hard drive also involves installing the O.S. and all your programs and applications on the new hard drive. You can find a lot of information in the internet about this.

Replace the cable you are currently using with your printer cable and see if it is the cable if that is not the case I would open the case, and check your connections on the hard drive, there is a chance it might have come loose.

How do I open the housing to rplace the drive? Many thanks.


If you don't see any screw holes, look around for some rubber feet, chances are the rubber feet are hiding some screws. If you remove those carefully enough, you can easily put them back in. Once all the the screws are removed carefully pry open the case and remove/replace the hard drive inside.

I can't find my Hitachi 250 external HDD in my computer.Although i can see it on the Devices and Printers,but also there is no option of open it or do anything on it. Goodluck


Your external hard drive has no partitions so Windows has no drive to mount. Follow these steps to create and format a partition for your external hard drive.

1. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
2. Type "Control" into the dialog box.
3. Double-click Administrative Tools.
4. Double-click Computer Management.
5. Select Disk Management under Storage.
6. Find the 250 GB External Hard drive in the right pane.
7. Right click on the drive and select "Create new partition".
8. After the partition is created you will need to format the partition.
9. Format the partition as NTFS unless you plan on booting off the hard drive, in which case format the partition as FAT32. You can also create multiple partitions if you want.
10. Enter My Computer and you will now see your external hdd.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do you install a new Hard Drive


DESKTOP COMPUTER: If you want to add another hard drive besides your already existing hard drive:1) Open the left side cover of a desktop computer with a screwdriver. 2) Locate two spare red cables ends (one for data transfer, another for elictricity) and plug them to your new hard drive (you can't do anything wrong, as the plug shape for each type is unique). Remark: If you don't have any spare ends of such cables inside your computer, buy SATA data cable: http://cgi.ebay.com/5-SATA-SERIAL-ATA-HD-DATA-HDD-SIGNAL-CABLE-RIGHT-ANGLE-/390263214964?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5add801374#ht_1746wt_972 and 1 SATA power cable: http://cgi.ebay.com/4-pin-IDE-Molex-2-SATA-Power-Cable-Splitter-Adapter-/270716115788?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f07f01b4c#ht_3549wt_754. 3) Place the hard disk next to your already existing one and attach with screws so it won't move.
See this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jbb9xrR49d8
LAPTOP COMPUTER: If you want to install a new hard disk for laptop, you normally can't have 2 hard drives - you can replace the old one (turn your laptop bottom-up, open screws at the bottom of it, open one of the smaller covers and locate your old hard drive in one of them) and reinstall the whole operation system (e.g. Windows XP) from your installation CD.
See this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTCu331Rsac
EXTERNAL DRIVE: Or alternatively you can use it as an external hard drive (which is slower than the inner, though, because it connects to the computer through slower USB ports) - buy an external hard disk drive case:
In any case installing a hard drive is much easier than it seems, you virtually can't make a big mistake.

The computer does not recognise the hard drive through USB port.


The "click" is a sign that the disk-drive is malfunctioning.
If it still is under warranty, exercise the warranty, and get it fixed/replaced.

Otherwise, open it up, remove the disk-drive, and take it to a computer-store, and ask them to sell you something compatible.
Install the new drive into your casing.
