Hai i have transcand stor get 320GB hard disk. my propblem my computer detect the hard disk but when i try to open that it asks "do you want format it?" what shoud i do?.


If the computer is prompting that the drive needs to be formatted, this means either the drive has become currupt (not likely) or that the drive hasn't been formatted or is an unrecognised format

if the hard drive was formatted on a Mac or Linux machine without choose Fat32 format, the drive will be prompted to be formatted under a windows machine

if there is no information on that drive, i'd suggest just formatting it

remember formatting a hard drive removes all information off that hard drive.

When i try to run a disk it says the disk is not formatted do i want to format it now. the disk has information on it so it has to be formatted .


It is possible that there are errors on the floppy disk or the disk was formated using a format that is incompatible with the current operating system. If the disk is readable on another system, the best solution would be to copy the files onto a portable USB flash drive, then reformat the floppy disk using a filesystem that is readable on the desired computer.

How do i format a Cd on windows xp


1 Open your disk drive2_bing.gif. Ensure that your disk drive is empty before proceeding, some CDs, especially CD-RWs, will be erased if you skip this step.
  • Step 2 Place CD-RW into CR-R drive. The disk drive may automatically detect this is an empty or "clean" disk. If so, skip to step 4.
  • Step 3 Find the disk. Click on "Start," then "My Computer," then on "Devices with Removable Storage," and then right-click on the CD-RW icon.
  • Step 4 Format the disk. Select "Format Disk" from either the drop down menu on Step 3 or from the Dialog Box in Step 2. This process should take only a few minutes to complete. If your CD-RW has information on it already, you may select "Erase CD-RW" instead of "Format Disk."

    Dont remeber my password


    Hi,

    It is always best to include the OS in the post which would be more easy for us to give the instructions.

    In this case you can format the hard drive.

    Formatting the Drive
    in Windows 2000 or XP

    1. Disable any anti-virus software you may have running in
    the background.

    2. Double-click on My Computer/Explorer. In the My
    Computer/Explorer window you should see the icon and
    drive letter for the AcomData Drive.

    (If you are not sure which drive letter represents the AcomData Drive, turn it off and see which one of the icons disappears. Then turn on the Drive and wait for the drive letter to reappear.)

    3. Right-click on the drive letter and select Format… in the
    pop-up menu. The Format dialog box will appear.

    4. Under Capacity, verify the Drive capacity. It should be
    close to the stated capacity of your Drive in gigabytes.

    5. In the File System pop-up menu, select NTFS. As NTFS file system is more secure than the FAT32 or FAT.

    6. In the Allocation unit size pop up, select “Default alloca-
    tion size.”

    7. In the Volume label field, type in a name for the Drive. You
    should give the drive a unique name that will allow you
    to easily distinguish it from other hard drives or storage
    devices.

    8. The default formatting option is Full format, however
    under Format options you can select Quick Format. A
    Full format will take about 30-90 minutes.

    A Quick format will take just a few minutes, but will do less verifying of the Drive than a Full format will. Do not check Enable Compression.

    9. Click Start. Once the format process is complete, the Drive
    will be ready to use.

    Formatting the Drive
    in Windows 98SE or Me

    1. Disable any anti-virus software you may have running in
    the background.

    2. Double-click on the My Computer icon. In the My
    Computer window you should see an icon and drive let-
    ter for the AcomData Drive.

    (If you are not sure which icon represents the Drive, turn off the Drive and see which icon disappears. Then turn the Drive back on and wait for the icon to reappear.)

    3. Right-click on the drive letter and select Format. In the
    Format window, verify the Drive’s capacity; it should be
    close to the stated capacity of your Drive in megabytes.

    4. Under Format type, select Full; everything else should be
    left at the default setting. In the Label field under Other
    options you may assign a name to the Drive.

    You should give the drive a unique name that will allow you to easily distinguish it from other hard drives or storage devices.
    (The name you assign is limited to 8 characters and no
    symbols are allowed.)

    5. Click Start. The following warning message will appear:
    “This device is either a hard disk or a large removable
    disk.

    Formatting it will destroy all files currently on the
    drive. Are you sure you want to format this drive?” If no
    data was previously written to the Drive or you already
    backed up the data you wish to keep, click OK.

    6. If you see a warning from an antivirus program, click
    Exclude.

    7. When formatting is complete, you will be asked to run a
    thorough Scandisk. Periodically running Scandisk is a part
    of regular hard drive maintenance. If you do not wish to
    run Scandisk at this time, close the Format window.

    Formatting the Drive
    in Mac OS X

    1. Disable any anti-virus software you may have running in
    the background.

    2. Launch the Disk Utility application (Applications folder >
    Utilities folder > Disk Utility). The Disk Utility window will
    open with a small window at left and a larger window
    with a series of tabs at the top.

    3. You should see the Drive listed in the left window. Click
    on the Drive to highlight it. Information about the Drive
    will appear in the Information window.

    4. Click on the Erase tab. In the Erase window you will see a
    Volume Format pop-up menu and a Name field.

    5. From the Volume Format pop-up, select Mac OS
    Extended. (With Mac OS 10.3.x or later, you have the
    option of selecting Mac OS Extended (Journaled).

    (Journaling is a feature that helps protect the file system
    against power outages or hardware failures, reducing the
    need for repairs. We recommend using journaling, if avail-
    able.)

    6. In the Name field, type in a name for the Drive. You
    should give the drive a unique name that will allow you
    to easily distinguish it from other hard drives or storage
    devices.

    7. Click Erase. You should see an alert pop up with the mes-
    sage: “Erasing a disk will destroy all information on all of
    the volumes of the disk…” Click Erase.

    Once initializing is complete, you should see the Drive listed
    in the left window of the Disk Utility screen with whatever
    name you assigned. Quit Disk Utility. You should now see
    the Drive icon on the Desktop.

    Formatting the Drive
    in Mac OS 9

    Before you can re-format the Drive you will need to restart
    your computer from the Mac OS 9 System Software CD that
    came with your computer or which you purchased as an
    upgrade.

    1. Disable any anti-virus software you may have running in
    the background.

    2. Insert the System Software CD into your CD drive.

    3. With your AcomData Drive connected and powered on,
    restart the computer and hold down the C key while the
    computer is starting up.

    4. You will see the alert message: “This disk is unreadable by
    this computer. Do you want to initialize this disk?” Click
    OK.

    5. In the Name field, type in a name for your Drive. You
    should give the drive a unique name that will allow you
    to easily distinguish it from other hard drives or storage
    devices.

    6. From the Format menu, select Mac OS Extended.

    7. Click Initialize. You should then get the alert message:
    “Initializing will erase all information on this disk.” Click
    Continue. Once initializing is complete, you should see
    the Drive mounted on your Desktop with the name you
    assigned.

    8. Restart your computer and eject the Mac OS 9 CD, or go
    to Control Panels--> Startup Disk and select the comput-
    er’s startup disk. Restart the computer.

    Good Luck.

    Live, Love, Laugh.

    Uknown format


    When using your MP3 player for the first time you should format it. Formatting prepares the disk (storage medium) for any reading or writing. It erases all information on the disk, and tests for any bad sectors or errors. Below are the steps for formatting your player: -Connect the disk storage (MP3 player) to your computers USB port. If the computer pops up a window asking what do you want windows to do? Click cancel. -Right click on My Computer and click on Explore. Look for the drive Removable Disk (E:) [The letter drive may vary depending on your computer] This is your MP3 player. -Right click on the drive Removable Disk (E:) and click Format… A small window will pop up displaying Format Removable Disk (E:) Click Start. Read the warning and click OK. Format is complete.This procedure can be done occasionally to erase all data on the disk storage.
