Hi

Have you checked it on other pc ? If yes then your hard disk is corrupted you lost partition information but dont worry u can retrieve your data by getbackdata for NTSF. Its able to retrieve about 98% of data or other is Acronis Disc Direct Suite, the same reliable and really working tool to restore information. It really restored ALL files in lost partition
After using these tools just format your hardisk and it will work dont worry

I have a external usb smartdisck fdusb-tmm. my mac book pro is not reading it


Mac OS X "natively" supports the SmartDisk.
So, if it does not work, it is "dead".
Search on eBay for "external USB floppy" to buy a replacement.

Absolutely EVERY floppy disk inserted tells me that the disk is NOT FORMATTED. I know for a fact that there are files on them.


I suspect a problem with either your former drive or the TECC drive. May I suggest you try formatting a disk with the TECC to see it will recognize that disk as formatted?

If your other drive was a little off and all your floppies were written by that drive, I hope you still have it. On the other hand, if the floppies were written by the TECC, it being a external drive, it may have been dropped accidently and it now is out of whack requiring adjustment.

Im sorry you are having this trouble.

I wanted to copy some files from a floppy disc to my external hard disc formated for Mac but there seems to be mechanical problems and it says it is unreadable and wants me to reformat it. I bought a new...


Copying files from Floppy Drive to External HDD.

01. Ensure that both Floppy drive and External HDD are configured properly in the machine.

02. Sometimes if virus affected the files of floppy drive, will not copy the full files.

03. Close the small led in the floppy top right side and check once again.

04. In start program, type coimmand and the dos prompt with Drive will appear.

05. keyin Dir A: and see it reads all files.

06. There also it gives error, you cannot copy these files to External HDD.

07. Try to use some other floppier which is already formatted.

08. Ohrr solution is just copy all these files from the floppy drive on to C: and copy the same files after creating a folder in C Drive.

09. Check the Interlink cable is also working fine.

10. If the problem not solved, please call authorized system service engineer to sort out the issue..

Windows xp to vista external HD transfer problem?


It is exactly right... YOU are not 'in control' of the hard drive and your buddy's computer doesnt have the 'permissions' to work with YOUR files...

It MAY be possible to get the okay if he logs into his computer as the administrator.... it is NOT an actual 'hardware' issue... being able to see the files says that... XP and vista are 'close enuf' design-wise that drive compatability isnt it either...

If your friend can log in as 'administrator' he will likely be able to take 'ownership' of the files on your 'external' drive and get what you need!
