SOURCE: Windows not able to detect Hard Disk in My computer

1. Rightclick on your "My computer" icon.

2. Doubleclick the Manage option.

3. A screen will appear called: "Computer Management".

4. In the tree on the left you see "Storage" and the option "Disk Management" below it.

5. Select "Disk Management", and locate your SimpleDrive.

What does it say? If it shows only "Unallocated Space" you'll need to create a new partition on it. (Right click the unallocated space, then it'll show some options). If it is allocated, try formatting it. If you don't see your drive > reconnect it.

Let me know if this helped. Please rate.

Greetings,

DarkNeogen.

SOURCE: Will not read or format.

I had the same problem with a 1 gig Cruiser Micro and I did something that brought it back to life...I used the U3 Uninstaller on it even though I had already done so and it was already gone and I was then able to open the flash drive and write to it again...go figure!

SOURCE: Unable to access external WD 500 Gb drive: "You need to format the disk"

I have battled this for a few days. Your mentioning USB leads me to a possible solution.

I had a 500GB drive and put it in the USB enclosure and could only see 128GB one time, 138GB another. I found that external drive enclosures have their own IDE controller chips with older ones limiting the size of the drive they are able to "see".

The best test is to internally mount the drive (perverts will read this differently than intended and risk injury due to shock!) to make sure it can be seen. If so then the next best step is to spring for a new drive enclosure, one that supports the higher capacity drive. It worked for me! My old external enclosure's IDE controller could not handle the higher capacity drive and the new one was perfectly happy with it. Good luck! - Andy C

My hp mini 2140 laptop says non disk or disk error hoe do I fix it


You must try to format it with a disk installer (windows cd).. During the process of formatting it will show the HDD is exit or not. If it not exist means the HDD is physically damaged. Or you will be ask for the partition to install windows on it

Help how to format lenovo ideapad s300 in windows 7


If you want to format your entire hard drive (and reinstall windows) You'll need to insert the appropriate windows disk. If you want to reinstall 7, insert your windows 7 disk and boot off of the disk (When booting, it should start by showing a screen that says "Press any key to boot from CD..." and you can just press a key on your keyboard. From there, follow the on screen instuctions. When you get to the drive partitioning step, select your hard drive and partition you want to format. You can delete the partition you have and make a new one if you want to totally clean the computer (WARNING: This will literally delete everything on your computer. Everything). From there you continue and finish the setup (it may run for a while). And you have a fesh new hard drive and operating system install.

Try another disk.
One problem with CD R/W is that some programs insist on formatting them. If you have "In-CD" running, shut it down and try again.

Installed a new hard drive


Well, since the new hard disk is not formatted, and there is nothing currently on it, you will not get a dos prompt or an operating system detected. What you need to do is insert your Windows XP disk, then reboot the machine. When you see the HP screen, tap the F12 key, which will take you to a boot menu. On the boot menu, choose your CD drive, then the computer will boot from the windows disk. From there, just format your disk, and install Windows.

Million thanks for the one who solves this for me


Hi Sweet_Rascal,

If I understand you right, all you want to do is to successfully complete the format of a 4Gb Jet Flash/Transcend Flash Drive. You were unable to complete it using the Windows built-in format function. Further you can not access, read from or write to the said flash drive.

May I suggest you to use HP Drive Key Boot Utility instead of the Windows built-in format command.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
