How do i fix my usb flash drive .. it keeps going raw when i try to convert from fat32 to ntfs


When you say try to convert, you mean reformat from fat32 to NTFS? Depending on the size you may not be able to write it as a NTFS. Also, if you have anything on it you want to save, you need a raw recovery tool Squidoo has a good one.
However, if it won't let you format to anything and keeps reverting to raw, most likley your drive is damaged beyond normal repair.

After I format my hardisk for several times and the file system still showing RAW. how to make it ntfs.


Install the drive on a working computer and access through disc management. that will allow you to initialize the drive and format it ntfs. Goto my computer right click select manage select drive management. This works on XP if you have other OS than search for disc management for your OS.

Hard Drive RAW System


Run diagnostics on the drive it may be failing. If it's ok you can try to reformat it from Windows Disk Management.

Or if you need to recover data for remote data recovery and do-it-yourself data recovery see http://FreeDataRecovery.us

NTFS harddrive now reads as RAW


After experiencing the related hard drive RAW file system issues last year, I did have learned that the related RAW drive data loss troubles happened to people after they did have rudely extracted drive out from computer, sudden computer crashing or hard drive corruption, etc.
However, no matter why and how it occurred to you, you are supposed to recover data from RAW file system drive with the help of hard drive raw file system recovery software.
And then, format this drive to convert RAW to NTFS or FAT32 file system.
So, you may also go take chances.
Also make drive data backups well on several drives from now on.
Hope my experiences also give you useful clues.

Hard drive does not recognize a file system


Buy a software called EASUS DATA RECOVERY WIZARD, install it on a working computer. Connect your hard drive as a slave and open the program. Use the Complete Recovery Method to recover all your files. It is usually pointless to try and recover system files. Unless you want to recover your documents and files that were there in the hard drive.

How do you get the Iomega eGo Hellium 350GB hard drive to be recognized and initialized by Microsoft Vista Operating system? Have tried the instructions from Iomega and they do not work. The system...


one thing that is possible, is that you may have another drive letter assigned to the letter the iomega is trying to use.

Try this....Click on your start orb and type in Disk Management.
open the Disk Management utility in Windows and see if you see the iomega drive listed in the list of disks on the bottom.

If you DO see the iomega drive there, make sure it shows a healthy partition (It should say something like Fat 32 or NTFS as the file system type...if it shows "RAW" or "damaged" or something like that, you may need to erase and format the drive)

Then, try right clicking on the drive and choosing "Change Drive Letter and Paths..."
from there try a new drive letter in case you already have another peripheral using the drive letter the iomega drive is trying to grab. This could cause Windows to recognize the drive but still be unable to see it in your explorer.

Good Luck

I have an iomega exteranl hardrive whic i can access on my Mac laptop, but when i connect the drive to my my windows based laptop, it's not accessable


I not a big mac expert but it is probably to do with the way your portable drive is formatted. Windows pc's will recognize drives formatted as FAT32 or NTFS. Mac's will also recognize these formats. If the disk was originally formatted with a mac format like HFS is won't be recognisable to windows. Connect it to your mack and look for the Fike System Type. You could back up any files you have on the portabe device to your mac hard drive then format the drive on a windows machine. Start with a NTFS partition and see if your mac can read and write files to it. If not then try again with fa32. Once you have it going you can put your saved files back. Hope this helps. Let me know how you go.
