Question about Fantom Drives Titanium II (TFD160U2) 160 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

We have a Comstar 640gb external Hard Drive. All tests say drive is healthy. Running Windows XP. Drive was working yesterday when hooked up to our old PC. Now on new PC Windows will see the HD and we can see the files on HD but we cannot open or move files. We are using the correct USB port. Any suggestions?

Files from a back up


You should be able to plug the external hard drive into the new computer and restore. Generally the drivers needed to access the external driver are on the external drive itself. The operating system will detect the hard drive (if it has plug-and-play services running). If the new computer fails to see the external drive, check the cable and download the driver manually from the manufacture's website. If the drive is recognized by the operating system, but you do not see a prompt to restore from the backup, you may need to locate a setup program on the external hard drive to start the restore process.

Trying to read external HD, unknown partition


I see that you have a loss partition of your External HD. It is totally damage partition.
Here's what you do Replug your External HD to another PC if it is OK. Maybe its not the same will appear on your PC too.
Unknown Partition are likely big trouble to us if we have needed files inside.
Partition on every HD, External or USB are very needed, if you lose it. Then again reformat that to use again.
Hope its not gone. Good luck!

Format external hard drive to NFTS


Assuming you are running Windows XP or Vista, the easiest is through the Disk Manager.
Open the administrative tools from the Start menu and select Computer Management. Then select Disk Management in the console.
Now you can right-click the disk and select Format. Chose NTFS and wait for it to finish (which will take some time!).

Do realize that this will erase your data on the disk. If you do not want that, you need to use the CONVERT command from the command prompt. type CONVERT /? to find out about its usage.

U can remove the drive from the external unit and hook it up to your vista computer as a secondary drive. Boot up the vista, use windows explorer, and transfer the data from the secondary drive to either your primary or a usb stick.
