All full size CD-ROM disks should hold .680 GB of data.

That's *POINT* 680, or 680 MEGA bytes, which is LESS than 1 GB.

The capacity of some CD-ROMs may be slightly more 700MB or so (the capacity is usually stamped on the label), and of course the mini CD-ROM disks hold significantly less.

Either you have 50 gigs of stuff on there or your hard drive space is not being properly read. U might need to reformat the drive if necessary.
Meanwhile your xbox electronics may have a limit on the size of space - so if the drive has 200 gigs of space on it and your unit will only recognize 32 gigs, then that is all it sees and can use. Capiche?

The hard disk inside that Spire case has died - running the free space clean from CCleaner (a very intensive procedure) has been the death blow to an already sick disk.. Nothing more can be done to save it and the data on it. Replace it with a new one.

I bought a seagate 500 But I don't know how to put pictures on it


Yes. Its possible.
  • Step 1: Analyze the system requirements of the Windows operating system. Windows XP requires 1.5 gigabytes of free hard drive space. Windows Vista requires 20 gigabytes (for the Home Basic edition) or 50 gigabytes (for all other editions). The system requirements for older, outdated versions of the Windows operating system, such as Windows Me and Windows 98, can be found on the official Microsoft Windows Web site (link in the Resources section).
  • Step 2 :Connect the external hard drive to the computer with which you plan to use the hard drive. Use the hard drive's original cables included by the drive's manufacturer. It does not matter what connectivity standard you use. Windows will automatically detect the external hard drive.
  • Step 3: Click the Start menu in the lower left-hand corner of the PC screen and select My Computer.
  • Step 4: Right-click the icon for the external hard drive. Click Format from the pop-up menu. Format the external hard drive in the NTSF format.
  • Step 5: Insert the original Windows installation disk into your computer's CD-ROM drive. Close the Installation Wizard when it appears on the screen.
  • Step 6: Return to the My Computer window from Step 3. Write down the drive letters assigned to the CD-ROM drive and the drive of your external hard drive. For the sake of this article, we will use the example of D:\\ being the external hard drive and E:\\ being the CD-ROM drive. These are typically the letters assigned to CD-ROM and external drives in the Windows operating system.
  • Step 7: Click the Start menu button and select Run.
  • Step 8: Type "E:\I386\winnt32.exe /syspart:D: /tempdrive:D: /makelocalsource /noreboot" (without quotation marks) and click OK. This launches the Windows installer file on the Windows installation disk in drive E:\\ and commands it to install on the D:\\ drive (your external hard drive). The Windows Installer Wizard screen will appear. (Change the Drive Letter as in your Machine)
  • Step 9: Select the Full Install option in the Windows Installer Wizard. You will then be guided through the Windows installation disk. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation. Depending on the speed of your computer's processor, this may take several hours. Be prepared to enter important information, such as your Windows registration key to register your copy of the Windows operating system. Do not close the installation window until the installation process is complete.
Please rate the answer if you feel that this solution solved your issue.
Thanks for contacting Fixya!
Step 10 Shut down the computer and disconnect the external hard drive. You can now use the external hard drive to boot up another computer using the installed copy of the Windows operating system.

My computer wont recognise my toshiba 320gb portable hard drive.


Hello. If your using windows XP or Vista, plug your ext HD in to your computer.Go to controll panel and open administrative tools then computer management on the left side of this window open disk management under storage.This should show your existing hard drive ,free space.etc. Your cd-rom and your external hard drive shown as a letter perhaps( E:). Check to see if this drive is initialized if not try right clicking it and see if there's an option to initialize it. I had the same problem with mine and this fixed it.

Backup hard drive to an external hard drive


"what the error actually says is, you have either run out of space, or the backup file (.bkf) is too large for this disk. note: if the disk is formatted with FAT32, the maximum possible size for the backup file is limited to 4 gigs."

That error means that the FAT32 file system only allows 4GB files or smaller to be transfered. The chance that the backup file (.bkf) is larger than 4GB suggests that this file is causing your problems. You could try manually copying around that file (selecting all files from that folder except the large one) and see if that works.

Usually you will get many errors copying a drive directly as system files will be inaccessible and whatnot. Your best bet is to limit your copying to "C:\Program Files\" and "C:\Documents and Settings\", assuming you have Windows.

40 GIG EXTERNAL


Are you familiar with hidden files and/or using the Terminal application? Hidden files could be the cause of your disk usage and you could use Terminal to verify and remove the files. The easiest way to erase the drive and restore the space, though, is to use Disk Utility and erase the partition. Open Disk Utility Select the Volume name Click the Erase tab Click the Erase button BE SURE YOU HAVE NOTHING ON THE DRIVE THAT YOU WANT! Please let me know if this helps or if you have more questions.
