Try removing the HD from the external caddy and mount it into a new enclosure, then you will know if your HD is gone or was just the caddy.

You will need to reformat it.

For windows, right click on the drive and hit "Format"

For Mac go to Utilities -> Disk Utility and reformat it from there.

Remember to backup any important files on it first!

Hope this helps!

Easiest way to fix that problem is to save all your important files onto an external hard drive and reformat the hard drive, otherwise you will be trying to correct this with Antivirus programs and other junk that will only cover up the error message. Alot of times it is easier to format and reinstall the operating system than try to figure out tose error codes, and windows never gets their stuff right.

Good luck.

When I plug my my Hitachi SDM/205 250GB Simple Drive into the usb port a pop-up window appears and says that it needs to be reformatted. Have I lost my data?


Yes, but there are many recovery software that you can download from the internet.... so don't worry, try 4shared.com by searching Recover My Files which is very effective. Please note to format your HDD using Quick Format rather than Full Format.. Good luck..

WD passport fried I think. Can I reformat?


Well in this case, formatting should no be performed. the Western Digital data recovery tool should be taken a try first of all. If it doesn't help, then take the device for data recovery services if the data is really important to you.

Remember - DO keep the deivice safe from data overritten or physical damage. Regards.

Reformating my gateway E 4100


reformatting a drive is a big undertaking, formating the drive will erase everything, including viruses, before you format you need to make sure you have all the discs including the windows disc, driver discs, and a factory restore disc, also you make check the documentation on your system because alot of the gaetway, dell, emachines systems have restore partitions installed on the drive. Also youll need alot of coffee and alot of time, most importantly aside from the windows disc youll need a driver disc for any ethernet or wireless card you have installed. without this you will not have access to the internet most likely and donloading updated drivers is very helpful. This is a time consuming proccess unless there is a restore partition on the harddrive, the documentation will tell you how toaccess it if it exists, if not a restore disc will be nice.

I need instructions on how to use purchased external storage unit purchased, no instructions included


Because the reformat or restore process erases everything on your computer, it is critical to have a backup of any important files on your computer. You will also need your original software install disks to reinstall any software you have purchased.
  • Write down or print out all notes and internet pages because once the format process begins, you will no longer have access to them (or anything else in the PC)
  • As already stated, BACKUP all important files and data! When you reformat your computer everything will be erased!
  • Make sure you have all the CDs and other software. All programs will have to be reinstalled after you format the hard drive. Don't forget about software that came with hardware such as printers, scanners, etc.
  • Write down the brand and information for all the hardware on your computer. Look in the Device Manager and make note of the brand and model of network adaptors, video cards, sound cards, printers, modems, and displays. After reformatting you might need this information to reinstall drivers. You might want to read from this site http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313348
