Question about Computers & Internet

My Samsung HD400LD USB Device now only reads 232GB instead of the rated 400GB which even allowing for the 1000/1024 issue is still way down.This occurs both in WinXP and Win7 on both my desktop and Laptop. Any help would be appreciated.

    Yehaaa. Like you say there is a whole lump of "unallocated" space which adds up to the total.

    I have tried previously to reformat this drive but it hasn't given me any option to join/reformat the missing space and as this happened after using a "Data Recovery" program I am hesitant to use specific partition managers unless there is no other option.

Click Start
Right-mouse click My Computer
Click Manage
Click Storage
Click Disk Management (local)
Does the horizontal bar-chart show a 232GB partition, and "unused" space before or after the partition?
If so, that's where the "missing" GB can be found.

Receiver USB port Reading "No Storage"

I have the same problem as you with <no storage> using the UBT-1 on an Onkyo TX-NR616. Any device can connect to the UBT but the AVR does not seem to recognize the UBT-1 device.
Very annoying for such an expensive AVR.

My computer doesn't appear to be communicating with my printer. I am utilizing a usb cable and port. Is it possible that my printer USB port or modem isn't operating correctly??

Follow the steps given below to refresh USB ports.

1. Right-click My Computer icon on the desktop, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab.
3. Click the Device Manager button.
4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
6. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.

Please note, repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.

7. Shut down the computer.

CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected, instead of the Restart option.

8. Wait for 5 seconds and then restart the computer. When the computer restarts, a "Windows has detected new or added hardware" message window will open.

The above steps will refresh the USB ports.

Now connect the USB devices like mouse, video camera, your external usb hard disk...usb hubs...whatever you like and the drivers should install automatically.

Tip: It is always recommended to connect the main usb devices at the rear end usb port, as they require more power to initiate.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Computer won't recognize Toshiba 400gb passport USB harddisk.

I carry a small 8gb usb flash drive on my keychain for situations just like can get them cheap now online or in a local store.....i keep full versions of windows, linux, other necessary repair and recovery software, and most importantly, all drivers that seem important enough to hang onto additional copies. Go here and download the drivers for your device and store them in a flash drive since any computer can read the embedded drivers of these drives......and next time you have a system ask for the drivers, pop your keychain flash drive into the most available usb port and select the drive to be scanned for drivers and install........doing this now will provide you with the ability and flexibility needed to work with higher end and recently released components.
