Question about Western Digital Computers & Internet
Make sure you have the HDD in the same state as it was on Hibernating. If it was removed after Hibernation, it will not be 'seen' by the PC. Everything that was connected during Hibernation MUST be connected again when starting the machine so the O/S can follow the route.

SOURCE: Acomdata external hard drive
No ned to check in that.
The external hard drive can be fomatted by :
Open the my computer, in the my computer or explorer window you should see the drive letter for the external drive.
Right click on the drive you will get the popup menu.
In that select the format option.
But always use NTFS file formatting system.NTFS provides several advantages over FAT32, including support for larger ile sizes.
Use the full format option.
Wait for sometime, until the format is completed.
Then you are good to go.
Live, Love, Laugh.

SOURCE: Partition error
Try using the command FDISK /mbr. This should fix the master boot record. If not, then if you don't care about the data on your drive, you could wipe it clean with any of the several utilities available on the web and then try partitioning it. Search for "Wipe Disk" in Google.

Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it. If not - try to remove the drive from USB casing and connect it directly to your PC or put into another USB enclosure. This should help if the problem is with the enclosure itself and not with the drive.

Thanks for your responses...
I've pretty much decided that it must be a hardware problem within the harddrive itself...Can anyone lead me in the right direction to maybe take out the harddrive to put into another external shell in order to hopefully recover my data? Again I'm using a Seagate Freeagent Desktop 500GB external harddrive.

According to your problem first check the hard drive status and make sure that it is ok. If it doesn't detect in bios setup then you can change the cable of the hard drive. Also make sure that the DVD Rom working fine. If the hard drive doesn't detect while you begin setup then clear the bios first. Then reset the bios properly. You may need a firmware update also. If you can not continue the setup then break the partition of the hard drive. You can use partition break up software, like partition magic etc also. If it doesn't solve your problem then you may need to replace the hard drive. To check the hard drive status you can try with another OS installation. Best of luck.
