Question about Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600AAJS 160 GB SATA Hard Drive
I just install a WD 160 hard drive. When I turn on the computer there is a black screen with a message Command or filename not recognized x:\> What do I put here? It's a Dell Computer with Windows ME with a XP upgrade.
its brand new right? have it reformatted for the first time. you can do this by installing an OS and it prompts you to reformat it. actually, there are other ways to do that but for me, this is the most secure way to reformat a new harddrive in your situation.
hope this helps.

Power down your computer.
Remove the screws on the rear of the case and remove the side panel.
Place the jumper on the back of the hard drive to the "write-enabled" position.
Consult your drive manual if unsure of how to do this for your specific Western Digital drive model.
Replace the side panel and restart the computer.
If you know the password, go into the installation disc that pops up in my computer when you plug in your wd hard drive (right click and then open, not autorun) there should be some sort of thing called security.
Possibly unlock, or something along those lines on there double click on it and type in your password it should unlock it then every time then that you plug in your hard drive, you might have to do this to access your files
hope this helps
