Hi,

For using any external drive, you dont need any Program, only thing you need is the USB drivers.
May i know which Operating System are you using and what issue are you facing while using external drive?

Thanks.

How can I find the files on my 1tb, seagate external drive?


You maybe removed the driver for the hard drive when you ran the anti virus. Those programs can do some strange things. If you click on the start, then computer. It will show all hard drives on your system. If you cannot find your files. I would think your computer does not see the external hard drive. To reinstall the driver, you would need to go to the driver's manufactures web site to down load or yours may have came with a disk. If so just run the disk. Could do a system restore , but that would be last option .

Time for an external hard drive. Prices are excellent for large capacity hard drives too. Down load CCleaner. It's a free program that gets rid of useless files left behind when web surfing. You can pick uo a huge amount of disk space using this program.

How to fix Usb ports


There is nothing wrong with the USB ports, the problem is the laptop itself; all you need to do is a disk cleanup & disk defragment; just click the search program on your laptop and type in disk cleanup and do it then type in disk defragment and do it!! ( Disk Cleanup & Disk Defragment Programs Are Built Into The Laptop And cannot be removed )

Trying to install new windows, dvd runs noisy, does not load and finally ejects. Is this repairable?


Yes. Use an external DVD drive with a USB connection temporarily to load programs. You can remove the broken drive from the laptop and have it repaired.

How do I access my external hard drive on my lap


I think you should first set the parameters on the BIOS to boot on USB first then second to the internal hard drive. The lappy should have this capability first. And could support that storage space.

But a word of advise. Since it is 180GByte it might be very slow to access the USB boot. It should be almost the basic setup for the OS installed on the external drive. And an XP OS is much faster to load, as for me.

When you want to boot on external drive plug the external drive and power it before booting the lap. When internal don't plug the external, after booting plug it if you want to access as external drive.

Hope it helps.

Hello,
You should install Ubuntu from inside Windows with the wubi program. When you boot you will have Windows as the default boot option and Ubuntu as a second option. Choose the Ubuntu installation to reside on the external drive. You will connect the drive if you use Ubuntu.

If you do not do that, reinstall ubuntu on the external drive and choose to write the boot sector for GRUB or LILO on the external drive, not on the MBR of the primary drive.
Hope it helps.

Sims and sims 2 on external hard drive?


It works great, I had to do the same thing. All you have to do is save it to the external drive. yes all the programs and expansions need to be on the external drive.

When it asks you if you want to put it on the C:/programs/simms as it always does, just change the "C" to what ever drive your external drive is. do this with each game.

You will me living like a simm in no time. Let me know how you did..
