Nicholas, you might want to try plugging it into your computer (with light blinking) and restart your PC with it still plugged in, just ot see if your PC recognizes the drive on start up. Otherwise, I would try some -hard drive utility- software to see if it can be 'unlocked' or recovered. Hope this helps.

My toshiba 65hm 167 wont come on


If you are refering to the 3 yellow blinks repeated over and over the
boot data is corrupted. Download the firmware update(link below)from Toshiba and unzip the files and folders,copy the unzipped files & folders to a SD card (like a camera uses, don't use bigger than a 2 gig). Unplug the tv and insert the card into the slot hidden behind the cover above the HDMI inputs. Plug in the tv and watch the yellow blinking stop and a solid blue will light when done. Unplug the tv, remove the card,plug in the tv and all will be good.

I have toshiba 250 gb HDDR250E03X i am unable to write a data of 4 gb or more(single file of 4 gb or more)..?


Hi this is a file system issue. It is probably formatted in fat32, which does not support files above 4 gigs.
To solve this problem you'll need to reformat it (my computer => right click on the drive => format), using ntfs file system (under file system select ntfs).
Note:
THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING FROM YOUR DRIVE!
So back up everything before proceeding.
After it is done you will be able to copy files of any size onto it.

Alternative solution: download winrar and split your files into chunks smaller than 4 gigs.

Good luck!

I have a 320gb toshiba external hard drive, i've been using it around 3 years without any trouble. A few days ago i lost the cable connecting it to the PC. I bought a few cables but no use. Doesn't...


Hi there,

This is because there is a connection problem between the external drive and the computer. If you have changed cables to no avail, you can open the casing of the external drive where you will find the hard disk inside. Unplug the two cables connected to the harddisk and replug it after a minute. Then try again. If it still does not work, then you need to buy just a usb enclosure and plug the harddisk there to be able to use it again.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hard drive not showing in bios


It appears that your #2 hard disk has died. To test if it is faulty, remove the #2 drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into the USB port of a working computer. If the computer see it as an external USB drive and you can see the folders and open the files, then it is OK and the fault is possible the disk controller.
If the hard drive is not recognised then it is faulty and needs to be replaced.
