Change the other HDD to either Cable Select or SLAVE.

Then make sure you partition it correctly, Windows does a decent job at it.

Right click on My Computer, go to Manage, then under storage, click on Disk Management; you should see the HDD here.

Reformatting HCS725032VLA380


Is it your primary hard drive ?
Reformat hard drive to NTFS Windows XP allows you to easily format the hard drives with its inbuilt utility. Formatting the hard drive would forever delete all the files stored on it. There are two ways in which you can format the hard disk partition - from My Computer and from DOS. You cannot have a NTFS partition with allocation unit s above 4096.

Click on "Start," and then click on "My Computer." Right-click on the disk partition to format and then click on "Format." Click on the "File System" drop down box and select "NTFS." Click on the "Allocation unit " drop down box and select an allocation . It is recommended that you select the "Default allocation " option. Click on the "Start" button. b> Format the Partition from DOS b> Click on "Start," and then click on "Run." Type "cmd" in the 'Run' dialog box and then press "Enter." Type "format drive_letter: /FS:NTFS" at the command prompt and then press "Enter." Replace the 'drive_letter' here with the letter of the drive that you want to format (for example, format e: /FS:NTFS). For help on advanced formatting options, type "format/?'more" at the command prompt and then press "Enter." Keep pressing "Enter" as you read on. Hope it helps

I have Samsung HXMU050DA Portable HDD. My Notebook is feel it, but the Files nothing. "Your Hard Drive is Not formatted! Please formatting now?". I would like to Not lose My Files and datas....


If it asks to format the drive one of two things is most probably
  • The hard drive comes with software used to unlock the drive. If yes run the software and unlock it. If no next...
  • The file system is damaged. You can try repairing the file system by the following
  1. Open a command prompt (Windows key), type cmd
  2. type the following without the quotes "chkdsk [volume] /f" replace [volume] with the drive letter followed by a : so if Im checking drive E then it would be chkdsk E: /f
  3. If your running windows vista or 7 you will need to replace step 1 with (press window key), type comm and right click on command prompt and select "Run as Administrator", click yes.
  4. If you still can't get into the drive then you will need to either format it or just replace it as it is probably failing
You can download this http://www.ntfs.com/disk-monitor.htm and test the hard drives health to help you make a decision of whether or not to replace

La Cie USB hard dirve its lighting intermittently red and yelow and the computer not recognized


Plug your usb drive into your computer. Then right click on my computer and select manage. Select disk management in the left pane. scroll down to look for your external drive in the bottom pane. You might need to initialize the disk by right clicking the gray area to the left of your disk on the bottom pane. If its already initialized you should be able to right click the disk just to the right of where you just clicked and select format, making sure to assign a drive letter and do a quick format of ntfs through the wizard that pops up. If the drive is labeled GPT protected you'll have to convert the disk to MBR by using the diskpart command. Go to start then run and type cmd and hit enter to bring up the command prompt.
  1. Type diskpart and hit enter
  2. Type list disk and hit enter and find your disk in the output
  3. Type select followed by your disk's number, for example "select disk 1"
  4. Type clean and hit enter
  5. Close the command prompt and now you should be able to initialize and format your disk.

Hi, it seems Windows is not installed well or the hard disk could be faulty, the first step could be to check data and power cables among motherboard and power supply to hard disk and if that's OK, try to do a clean Windows installation, if this fails maybe the hard disk has the boot sector physically damaged and it's better to replace it.
