So the disk is recognized? And there is a valid partition on the disk?
What is the error you are getting?
Have a look at this external hard disk troubleshooting, maybe it helps you along.

I have a sony 400gb usb flash drive that i cant format, is there anyway to install an antivirus on this kind of flash memory?


The drive is accessed when you plug into a PC correct? If it has its own Operating system then yes but I am pretty sure it is for file storage and the Anti Virus software on your PC can be used to scan the drive when it is plugged in to make sure there are no threats on it. Moist external storage drives are not self driven and require an Operating system to access them.

Hope this helps

External Toshiba 400GB HDD not recognized on my Dell CPx J650GT


New hard drives need to be formatted! So go into the control panel switch to classic view, ( if you are still using category view for the control panel ) open administrative tools, then open computer management. Next open disk management. In disk management your new drive will show as raw, you will be give the option of formatting the drive, select primary partition and format in NTFS.
This will then format the drive, when this has finished your new drive will appear in my computer.

Freecom 400GB Hard drive not recognized.its a Freecom mobile drive xxs 400gb , my pc just cant recgnize the hard drive


I'll assume your using Windows.
I'll assume it's a USB drive.
I'll assume it is an external drive.
And I'll assume it's formatted as NTFS.

Try using the USB (or FireWire) port for anouther drive to see if that is the problem, if it is then reinstall the driver for the port, through the Computer Managment Concole (assuming yur using windows).

If you formatted the drive as FAT, re-format it as NTFS.
