If I format my Photo Frame, will it still work after the format ?

I continue to get the message " Format disk before use " for the drive assigned to the Photo Frame. It has worked in the past without any messages, what should I do now?

If you format it you will lose everything on it. But that may already have happened. The message means the computer can't find anything on the drive, not even a proper format, so your drive may have failed. Sorry.

HOE TO FORMAT DATE TRAVELER


The simplest way to format a Flash Drive or a Pendrive is to format it from the My Computer without using any commands. Let's assume you are doing it on a Computer (Pc Desktop). Follow the instructions;
1. Connect you Data Traveler on one of the Usb port of your computer, and wait for few minutes.
2. After you know that it's been detected by the computer, open "My Computer" then right-click on the Data Traveler's Drive Icon e.g. Removable Disk (K:), etc.. and select "Format"

Can't format flash disk


Files on a flash drive can be corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon and then click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flash drive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive you may need to format the flash drive, but you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive this program may help: -

MY external hard disk maxtor is not detected


Is this a new Maxtor external drive? It came with a CD. Run the utility.

If there is no data on it that you want to save, you can also blow away the partition and format it:
Right-click [My Computer]
[Manage]
[Disk Management]
Find your external Maxtor Disk inthe list and / or graph
Right-click on the disk and select either "Format" or "Delete Partition"
(try format first) Use "NTFS quick format"

If you delete the partition, then "Create Partition" and then format.
You can assign a drive letter or accept whatever it assignes (probably Drive D)
*done*

Card read error on the digital picture frame - brand new. I bought this 7" digital photo frame from argos and I insert the SD card whilst the device is turned off, when I turn it on the message reads...


Put the card back into the camera and off load/take off your pictures (Put them on the computer). Then, put the card back into the camera and go to your options menu. Find the format feature, and format the card. Take some new pictures and then try putting the card back into the picture frame. Does it work? If so, transfer the images from your computer back to the card. If it continues to work, then Great! If not, more than likely there is an improper or corrupt file among your photos.


Good Luck!

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.
