    all other four icons on my TS40GSJ25) 40 GB Hard Drive interface utility are working well but when I click on outlook express icon on TS40GSJ25) 40 GB Hard Drive desktop device, the following message is appeared with this title

    ( identity switch cancelled )

    The current identity could not be changed because one of the applications was unable to switch.

    close any open dialog boxes in other applications before trying again

Espero entiendan Español, tengo problemas con mi TS40GSJ25, por error al instalar Windows eliminé la partición del disco externo, que se encontraba conectado al momento de realizar el proceso. Me parece que eliminé la partición que trae el storjet. El problema que tengo en este momento es que al tratar de ponerlo a correr, me indica que la unidad no tiene formato y me pregunta si deseo darsela y cuando acepto esto no sucede y no puedo almacenar información, ni abrir los archivos que provablemente se encuentran borrados. Espero me puedan ayudar.
Muchas Gracias y espero tengan gente que entienda Español y me puedan ayudar a mi y a otros que hablan mi idioma.

Hi, problems with "running" your 40 GB Hard Drive?

Is it hooked up properly? Do you know how to hook it up?

Is the power cable hooked up to it? The IDE or other "data" cable properly connected to it?

Check all items with the connection with your hard drive.

If this isn't your problem, please repost.

Best of Luck.

Hello Anirudh,

To run the hard drive in Linux

Connect to the Internet. You will need access to the Internet to download the install files.
Open your Terminal in Ubuntu. This is the screen with the prompt where you can type commands.
Type "sudo apt-get install Gparted." Type in your root password and answer "Yes" to any prompts.

Type "sudo GParted." This will open GParted.Click the GParted menu and select "Devices." Select your external hard drive from the list. It is important that you choose your external hard drive and not the drive that has your system installed on it. One way to ensure this is to check the capacity on this drive; for example, if your internal disk is 80 GB and your external disk is 40 GB, choose the disk that is 40 GB.Click the "Devices" menu and click "Create Partition Table." Click "Advanced." From the New Partition Table menu, choose an option, depending on your system. For example, if you are dual booting Windows and Ubuntu, you may want to choose MS-DOS. If you are only running Ubuntu, choose GPT.Create a partition. Select a section of unused space and click "New."Set up your partition. For partition size, set the size of your partition--for most purposes, you can make the partition the entire capacity of the disk. Next, choose a partition type; primary is suitable for most purposes. Next, choose a file system. For sharing across a Windows system, use Fat32. For sharing with an Apple system, use HFS or HFS+. For use with an Ubuntu system only, use EXT2, EXT3 or EXT4.Click "Apply." The operations will run and your hard disk will be ready to use.

I have a problem with the HD. It is not working.

Well the hard drive on the laptop now is 40 GB. It is an ATA hard drive so you need to buy an ATA hard drive of xx gb. You choose the capacity, but considering the characteristics of your laptop it should be fine a 80 GB or 120 GB. (i mean the RAM is only 256MB and the data transfer will be slow).
It you need further assistance, leave a comment. Cheers
