Cant initialize disk


Hi Anon
Try connecting your hard drive to another computer and running the windows disk tools to test your drive, make sure that the options to automatically fix errors are selected, if this does not work then a suite of hard drive tools from Acronis (disk director) or Paragon (Hard disk manager) may be able to fix your problem.

I just bought a Dell Back-up plus 1 TB hard disk . when i plug in the USB cable it does not show up on My computer but it shows on "Device manager" and "computer management" .. so i cannot use it as a...


The only thing that I can think of is that you need to go into computer management and click on the "disk management" sub-heading under storage. From there all of the hard drives in the computer should show up. Find the new hard drive in the list and right click on the part where is say Disk 1 or Disk 2 or which ever disk is the correct one (it should be around 930gb or so). Then select initialize disk, and follow the wizard through the choices to setup the disk as a basic hard drive. After the disk is initialized you need to format it and then you should be access the drive in my computer.

For the hard drive you might have to go to computer and right click, then go to manage, then disk manage, then rescan disk if not just refresh it. The optical drive would have to be to go through the device manager in the system settings in the control panel and update the drivers.

SECOND HARD DRIVE NOT RECOGNIZED


Change the settings of you IDE drives in your BIOS. Set your secondary boot device to HDD1. Also make sure that your primary HDD is set to master and the secondary HDD is slave. The jumper is found at the back of the hard drive where you connect the power and IDE cables. Try this and post back as to how it went..

Iomagic gigabank 250 will not show up on pc


Hello,
If the external hard drive is new, you have to follow these steps:
right-click on My Computer
click Manage
then choose Disk Management in side pane.
a disk initialization wizard should appear.
Get the new drive formatted now and it should be ready
when you open the My Computer.
Let me know if you have any problems.

2nd hard drive


1. Make sure all cables are connected, does your bios detect the drive on startup?
2. Is the drive formated and set active?

to check if your windows sees the drive and is it active go to your desktop and right click on my computer -> manage -> Disk management.

You should see something like the picture below:
Your first disk will be Disk0 and 2nd disk will be Disk1 If you cant see Disk1 then the drive is faulty OR not connected properly make sure the drive is working with cables attached.
Listen if the drive spins. If it doesnt then something is wrong.

If you can see the drive there then you might not have made any partitions onto it. You can make new paritions to the disk right there, right click on your disk1(your 2nd hdd) and create a new partition. If that is not available initialize the disk with rightlick and blablaa .. I hope this solves it. :-)

Laptop dvd drive wont recognise.


Sounds like a bad cdrom drive. If it isnt even being picked up in the bios (cmos), then it'll never show in windows. If reseating the drive doesn't work, just replace it with a known good one. Unless there is damage to the plug inside, that should solve it.

No external hardrive recognition


It could be that the drive is not formatted/Initialized as yet! Right click on "My Computer" the click on "Manage". Go to(click on) "Disk Management". If the initialize disk wizard comes up automatically then just follow the wizard cause that means your disk needs to be initialized. On the right pane you should see all the disks and their status. It could be that your disk is un allocated. Look for the disk that is full black(black means unallocated), right click on the disk and click on "Create Partition" Follow the steps of the Create Partition Wizard( It will give you the option to format, DO THAT! If when you right on the disk and all that shows is "Initialize", then do that! and go back and create the partition! Hopefully that should do the trick!
