The speed is limited by the USB port rate transfer and hard drive specifications. You will not get a difference with a specific format or partition choice.

If you are running Win7 plug the USB drive in and wait for it to be recognized. Go to control panel, select Administrative Tools then Computer Management. Select Disc Management and you should find it there. Clear the partition and make a New Simple Partition. Then format it for use.

How do I format my new Seagate 500GB FreeAgent GoFlex Hard Drive to Fat32 for use with Xbox 360? I am using Windows 7 and when I open up the formatting options only NTFS and exFAT are available.


Windows Disk Management can only format a hard drive less than 32 GB to FAT32. If you want to format your 500GB drive to Fat 32, you need to use third party program like AOMEI Partition Assistant. http://www.disk-partition.com/free-partition-manager.html

Cannot access hard drive, USB port detects it, but does not access


You can verify what drive has been detected by your Operating System, which I assume is Windows of some sort by going to: Control Panel -> Admistrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management -> Your Hard disk will be displayed with all existing partitions.
I order to use any partitions in your new drive, you will need to assign a drive letter to each new partition.
If you have a brand new drive that is completely unformatted, then you will need, also via the context menu, Create partitions, Format partitions and assign a drive letter so that you can use the formatted partitions.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

I can not see the other items on my hard drive and it only shows 83gb on my 500gb hard drive help


Hello,
It could be that the other 400gb is unformatted space. Use a utility such as Partition magic to extend the formatted partition, or create a partition in the unformatted space.

Hope it helps.

connect your harddisk to computer.
Then right click on my computer icon then click on "Manage"
then click on "Disk Management"

then find your removable device then you find unpartitioned space create new partition .then check.

Also check jumper settings of your harddisk.
It should not be on 16 bit or 32 bit in hardisk.
