Question about Transcend (TS40GSJ25) 40 GB Hard Drive
My external hd cant be recongnized..
it shows up in MY COMPUTER..
but when i open it and try to make a new folder it says:
THE SYSTEM CANNOT FIND THE SPECIFIED FILE...
it cant be partitioned or reinstalled...
Try using diskmgmt.msc (from run) diskmanagement utilty or the partition magic software to format that would certainly help you
