Do i need to initialize my j book for it to be recognized. my j book is not recognized on my computer?


If you have already put files on it, initializing will most likely delete everything!

I assume "initialize" refers to Windows asking if it should format the hard drive.

If your drive is suddenly not recognized, the filesystem has probably gone bad. This can happen if you disconnect the drive while data is still being written to it. For this reason you should always "safely remove" USB drives.
If the filesystem is corrupted and cannot be accessed, you might be able to save your data by using special recovery software. One tool of the trade is the commandline-based "testdisk" utility for Linux, which I have succesfully used to restore entire filesystems without any data loss.

If you want to rescue your data, the worst thing you can do now is to initialize the drive or use it in any way that changes the content.

If you don't care whether the content is deleted, just initialize it or do whatever it takes for it to be recognized.

Please state if you want help on restoring your data.

Unable to detect my hard disk HM320HJ, after i m doing low level formatting using hdd low level format tool....


I believe low level formatting will leave the drive as raw. meaning there is no partition. You need to do an unconditional of quick format such as before installing windows. or install the drive in another working computer and access it through drive management witch will allow you to initialize and format the drive to an NTFS partition.

I need to replace hard drive for a ricoh copier 1045. How can I get the software for the hardrive, and what is the maximum size of the hard drive?


No need for software. The standard hard drive size is 10GB. I don't remember the exact limit but the machine will only recongnize a certain amount so it will do you any good to buy a larger capacity drive. Just get the smallest/cheapest one and you'll be fine. These take the smaller "laptop" size drive in case you did not know. Other than that just install the new drive and let the machine do the setup. If your old drive failed then keep in mind you will have lost any document server files, scan destination or fax destination info and will have to re-enter that info.
Good Luck
