Can't get into Hardrive and it is not listed in My Computer

I just received it and connected it to my Windows XP desktop. Windows recognized it and installed it, but none of the icons in My Computer will indicates that it is there. I see it listed under "Safely Remove Hardware", but it does not display a drive for it so I can not get into it to read it.

You will need to format and partition the drive for use. Go into my computer and right click on the drive and select format. Windows will then partition the drive and format it to the file system your version of windows is using. After it is partitioned and formatted you should be able to read/write to it. If it still does not work then verify that the master/slave settings are correct if it is a ATA drive. If it is Serial ATA no change of settings is required.

Acer Aspire one 722 windows 7 netbook. "Check cable connection" and "no bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key" are two common things appearing. The computer recognized hardrive, hardr


Hello, it looks like somehow the master boot record was erased from the hard drive, maybe viral? You mentioned the hard drive was recognized in the bios correct? If you need data from the hard drive the easiest way would be to pull the hard drive out and use an external hard drive enclosure to remove the data before you erase everything from the hard drive. If you dont need anything thing you can proceed to do a new install of Windows 7. Turn the computer on then hold alt and the f10 key to perform a factory recovery. This will erase everything and reinstall Windows 7. If this doesnt work then you will need a new hard drive and a bootable usb drive with Windows 7 on it. Hope this helps.

How to Connect a Windows 7 Computer to a Windows XP


Even though Windows XP and 7 are different versions of Windows, you can still connect a computer running Windows 7 to an XP computer using Remote Desktop Connection. Remote Desktop Connection is a utility in Windows that allows you to log in to a remote computer directly from your computer's desktop. However, before you can use the utility on your Windows 7 computer, you must enable it on the Windows XP computer. To connect to the Windows XP computer, you also need to know the XP computer's name.

Instructions

Enable Remote Desktop on the Windows XP Computer
  1. Click "Start" on the Windows XP computer, and then right-click "My Computer."
  2. Click "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
  3. Click the "Remote" tab, and then click the "Allow Users to Connect Remotely to This Computer" check box.
  4. Click "OK" to confirm the change when prompted on the pop-up window. Click "OK" on the open windows to close them.

Connect to the Windows XP Computer
  1. Click "Start" on the Windows 7 computer, and then type "Remote Desktop Connection" in the search box. Press "Enter."
  2. Click "Remote Desktop Connection" from the results list.
  3. Type the name of the XP computer in the "Computer" box, and then click "Connect" to connect to the XP computer.

DRIVER WON'T RECOGNIZE CDS


Go to windows device manager listed in the control panel of windows 7 or under "system" in windows xp. At the top of the control panel is a group of small icons. Try clicking on the far right one which detects new devices. Then click underneath in the hardrive listing to see if windows detected it. I also use maxtor's maxblast 5.0 software to prep or clone a new drive. It's a free download. You install it and reboot. Then click on the icon for options.Visit us http://www.ezsystemrepairs.com/

Navman ezy not connecting to desktop



I had the same problem here in New Zealand. Navman would be recognized using USB.

I tried it with Windows Vista and Windows XP. In the end, I connected to windows 7, it was immediately recognized. I had the option to apply a few upgrades which I did.

After the upgrade, it now also works for windows vista and windows XP

I have just purchased the iomefa desktop hardrive and not sure what todo next


If you have a USB or Firewire cable you can just plug it into the USB port or firewire port in your computer and plug the power cord in if you have one and it should start recognizing it.

I have two operating systems on my hard drive.


Hi,

You can manually disconnect the IDE/SATA cable temporarily from your motherboard (the one with NT PRO & XP HOME), then you can cleanly install a Windows XP on your new Hardisk. And after installing, you can re-connect the other hardrive on your computer and format it under your NEW Windows XP, be sure to set the BIOS BOOTUP sequence that you boot on the right drive.

My pc won't work!


Assuming you get 2 beeps on boot up, take the side off your pc and see if the whirring sound is coming from your hardrive, if so you may have a damaged sector on your hardrive where the boot sector is. If you have a Windows XP disc come back here, if not you need to take your hardrive to a friends pc and set your hardrive as the slave drive before connecting up. When booted up go to My computer and right click on your hard drive (could be 'D' drive or 'E' or 'F')depending on other pc. Go down to properties then tools tab and click error checking and let the system check for errors and automatically repair them. Your rating is importanat
