Question about Computers & Internet
Please note that: a drive formatted with FAT32 file system will not see NTFS formatted file system, whereas, a drive formatted with NTFS file system will definitely see FAT32.
To make it clearer, this means that, if on your system, your hard drive which is having the operating system installed on it, is formatted with FAT32 file system, and you bring an external drive, or even a backup drive which is formatted with NTFS file system, and you plug it to your system, the system will detect it but it wont be able to access the full drive capacity, you will just see it in the device manager page that it is connected.
But If it is Vice-Versa, the NTFS formatted drive will detect the FAT32 drive.
Now in your own case, if your system is formatted in NTFS file system and you plug in your external drive which is NTFS formatted also, then it means that you have some hidden partitions on your external drive, so when you plug it, try and do this:
Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.
On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your external drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.
If you see any other hidden drives there, do the same thing to it.
This should make your External Drive to be detected automatically.
Also Make sure that the USB port that you are using is a USB 2.0 port, and not USB 1.0 port, you can just try the other ports there, to be sure.
Hope this helps you out.

Thanks so much for this; i was in despair because i plugged in a new external harddrive, which somehow took the position of the existing one i had been using and then when I was trying to use my itunes library it couldnt find any of the songs. It wouldnt recognise my existing hard drive as f:/ any more; only g:/ no matter where i plugged it. I thought Id give this a try because it sounded like what i needed and hey presto... i have music again!!! Thanks so much

between one of your cartridges and the printer, a short in one of the
cartridges, paper jam or the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please follow

These instructions will make your flash disk more "personalized". You can use any picture you want.
The end result will be viewable from any pc you plug your flash disk into. You only need notepad to code it.
Then you can show off anywhere
HERE ARE THE 4 STEPS YOU SHOULD REMEMBER
Preparing the Picture
Of course, you must have a flash disk to do this. Once you plugged in the flash disk and open it via explorer, make a folder named "background" or whatever name you want. Then, put any picture you want in that folder, but you should remember the folder and the picture's name. Right click at the folder, then open properties. Check the box beside "hidden" to make it unseen, and making your flash disk neat. You can place the picture you want to use in any folder you want, even existing folder. The only difference is the coding of the desktop.ini file at the next step.
Coding the background.ini
Now right click anywhere in the flash disk, (not in the folder you've just created) and open a New Text Document. Just ignore the new document's name because it will be deleted later. Open it using notepad and use theese code for the template:
Then save it as Desktop.ini and delete the old New Text Document.txt
other filenames will not work.
See picture for notes on editing the code.
Then you're done!
You're done. You can show off at your school's computer lab, in your friend
