Formatting will erase all data on this disk. to

Hi there

Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer.
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

I just erased my WD 1.0TB HDD and now I cannot back up


Have you already formatted the drive?

Try to format the drive first. If you are using Windows, just right click My Computer, click Manage and then hit Disk Management. Locate your WD drive and then right click on it, hit Format. DO not forget to check QUICK FORMAT.

Tell me how it goes.

The d drive has disappeared from my laptop. how

You have to create a Partition and make a new "logical drive" . Right click my computer then select manage. Select Disk Management and then click and right click on your C drive and select create new drive. DONT CLICK FORMAT or u will erase your whole hardrive. But usually your D drive is your cd-rom or dvd drive so i dont really understand that

My 120G hardrive stopped working, it erased all my data, wont save data, and when i go to the memory unit selection and select the hardrive, it says FORMAT, i select it, then it asks to put in serial...

Like all hardware devices it depends on how old the unit is and whether the problem is covered under warranty. More than likely you have bad sectors on the HDD and it will not format which will require a new HDD. Check and see if it is still under warranty if not you will need to purchase a new one.

GENX USB 4GB when i insert in my computer it shows as drive F, but when i try to open it computer says "Please insert a disk into drive F:" so it won't open anymore. please help if u can. jooe

if you have any data you need to recover then use

or r studio

which is paid for software but well worth it.

If you dont care about the data then you can just erase it either by right clicking on the drive and going format / erase or right clicking on my computer --> manage --> disk management --> right click on F drive or the memory stick and then select format / erase

Formatting my WD external hardrive

Hi, In computer terms, formatting a hardrive is the process of preparing/setting the different areas (for read/write) of the harddrive and keeping a list of the addresses. This way the computer would know what data went with what and to where in the HD. Most if not all new HDs are not formatted (prepared) for computer use but are detectable by the PC. Formatting not only makes the HD recognizable, it is now usable. By formatting, the PC also erases any and all references to the existing data on the HD. After being erased and prepared, it also checked for any possible errors. Hope this be of some idea/help. Good luck and kind regards.
