Hello,

Please backup all of your files in your Lifebox to your computer and format the Lifebox to a FAT32 file system. If you want to know why this problem seeks you... NTFS file system cannot be read in other kinds of devices such as TVs, Cameras (New ones maybe) and more! So if you want to watch DVDs on your TV you better format your drive to a FAT32 file system.

Hope this helps!

    Hello,

    OK, first you connect your Lifedrive to your computer, then in "My Computer", right click on the Lifedrive and click format. A pop-up window will show up. In the file system drop-box, click FAT32. Do not quick format. Then press start. It will start format and DON'T TOUCH YOUR LIFEDRIVE. Wait until another pop-up window say Format Complete.

    I hope this helps to your recent question!

Is their a reset switch on the xbox 360 slim console 250g one?


For a Factory Reset, you just need to format your hard drive.
To do this, simply go to this site: http://support.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-360/accessories/storage
Scroll down to the "Format a storage device" section and follow the steps there. This section also shows you where you can find your serial number, which is sometimes needed to complete the format.

Hi, I can't copy or paste any file with Maxtor One Touch 4 Mini because it always informs that "This disk is write-protected" Can you help me? Thanks a lot.


click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
click start click on my computer you should see your pen drive
right click then select format
another way is to control panel administrive tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select format

USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

also
If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:

- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab
- Click permissions
- And finally, click Allow next to Full Control.
hope this helps

Maxtor 320 GB mini not working


If it shows up as a USB mass storage device it:-
1. Has power
2. It is connected to the computer via USB.
3.The correct software has been loaded for the hard drive. 
The beep sound is probably an error message saying that the drive is not responding properly inside the case.

Hard drives Drives have been known to stick or not start up due to power cables or ribbon cables being dislodged. Try pushing these back into place.

If this is not the problem go to the Maxtor site (maxtor.com) and report the problem with the drive, not the USB which appears to functioning correctly.

1. Download this tool:

2. Format

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)

I have a Maxtor Personal Storage and I am


I found this info on Seagate forum (Seagate owns Maxtor). http://forums.seagate.com/stx/board/message?board.id=PersonalStorage&thread.id=38

The error 10 is an indicator of a drive gone bad. But, there are a few on there that say they were able to get them working again. If you device is under warranty, try working with Seagate support first for a replacement. If you have data on them, you may need a recovery specialist to salvage that data.

I/O DEVICE ERROR


I/0 error, IS AN INPUT/OUTPUT ERROR. this device is formatted as FAT32 as it is usable on all OS. however if you formatt it to the faster, safer NTFS format, it will only work on 2000, XP etc. so firstly is the device being "seen" by windows? as in does the plug and play connect device sound play? or the green arrow and card icon appera in the bottom left corner? if it doesnt your computer may not have a mass storage device installed, or a driver for it, go into your device managment and click rescan plug and play and if nothing comes up click, view hidden devices, and select the correct driver, by either manually selecting the mass storage or Hdd driver or letting windows find one on the net or locally. if this still doesnt fix things, be aware that external HDD us ealot of power, and some USB ports dont give enough power for the HDD to wind up enough speed to operate. try using a different port, 2.0 not 1.0 as i have found power draw issues with 1.0 USB and/or get a shorter, foot long or less cable. good luck.

HDD not recognized in XP Installation


if you are using it as a slave hard drive, you should be able to right click my computer, manage, then in next window double click storage, then disk management, then look for your drive, you can then look to see if its recognised, if not it will tell you that its not configured, and you should be able to right click on it and format it.
