Re: Hard drive problem

In device manager, local disk manager, right-click the disk (not the empty area). Select convert to basic disk. it will be done after a warning/confirmation/possibly restart.
Now right-click the empty area, create a simple volume or primary partition.

After install window not show may hard drive

Right-Click "Computer", Manage, Storage/Disk Management. What you see here is what you have, or at least what Windows thinks is connected. If you have a missing hard drive, check your hard drive connections.

How to detect two IDE drives with same brand

You need to set one of the drives to be 'master' and the other to be 'slave'.
This is done by positioning jumpers on the back of the harddrives.
Pretty sure that on the drives is explained somewhere how to position the jumper, for several options.

Good luck,
Please post some feedback.

Freecom 250 Gb Hard Drive

Hi des,
you need to install windows XP, on a different hard-drive.
even if it,s only 10 gig plus.
You can then access the drive.
Your problem is here, is that you,ve upgraded from XP to Vista, theres a possibility, that you may have lost or even formatted your freecom hard-drive.
No-Support-Device detected, is saying that your USB devices are not functioning correctly.
Check in the bios that the USB devices are enabled, to operate your hard-drive. ( this is assuming it,s a USB drive )

Hope this helps you out.

Mike @ compurepair.
