The first thing to do is determine the condition of the drive. You can check if there are problems with the drive using the free trial version of http://www.hdtune.com/

If it checks out ok then you can try to recover your data with Recuva it's free http://www.piriform.com/recuva

Or if you need data recovery help this a good choice for low cost and fast data recovery. All data recovery work is performed remotely over the Internet from a boot cd that you download and the best part is they just ask for donations if you are happy with the results: http://FreeDataRecovery.us

How do i download music to a 2GB Kingston Datatraveler


Hi,
Such kind of flash disks or external pen drives, shown as a new disk when you attached it to computer.

Please plug-in your kingston to usb port of your computer.
Open an file explorer (or double click on to the "my computer" icon).

You can see the drives currently attached to your system. If there is a floppy drive it named with the letter A.

Your hard disk(s) identified by the letters starting with C and CD/DVD rom D.

Your kinkston also shown with the next letter just after the HDD and CD/DVD under normal conditions.

Please click onto the letter that identifies your kingston and see the content at the right pane.

You can then copy your music files and paste into the kingston .Like normal file operations.

regards.

Bios no option to Boot from usb Cd rom broken


Floppy works right? So you need to boot from floppy disk, install USB drivers in DOS and then access an external USB device... whew. OK, so getting a dos 6.22 boot disk is easy, then you have to load a DOS-level USB device driver that 'recognizes the chipset in your USB controller/port and can turn it 'ON'

Go here and READ ;-) They have everything you need (except for my expert help)
http://www.bootdisk.com/usb.htm

Good luck!
P.S. There are many DOS-level drivers out there, if you don't find one for your PC, make a noise and I'll see if I can help

Stepbystep procedure for formating


Hello jerapur_123 What you'll need:
  • Recovery CD or Restore CD from the MFG
  • WIndows Operating Disk 98 or ME, 2000, XP or Vista.
  • A CD Rom Drive
  • Or a Floppy for low level formatting.
Key Steps to Formatting
Back it Up!
Before the format process, you want to make sure that if your goal is hard drive recovery, you back-up as much personal data and information from your hard drive as you need. In some instances where a virus has caused serious system damage, this may not be possible, but if your format is planned ahead of time you certainly can copy and archive data off your hard drive before you start the format process.

How to Format
If you purchased your computer from systems vendor such as a Dell, HP Compaq or Gateway system, you most likely will have a set-up or a restore-and-recovery CD (also referred to as a master CD) that came with the system. If this is the type of system you use, then a format is an easy process as the master CD by inserting the CD into your CDROM, will format the hard drive, reinstall your Windows operating system, and install any software and programs that came with the system. If you no longer have your master set-up CD, you should contact the manufacturer to get a replacement.


How to Format without a Recovery Disk:

If you aren't using this type of mass-market system, then a hard drive format will consist of you formatting the hard drive manually, installing your Windows OS from CD, then installing your software programs and hardware drivers. Before you begin the formatting process, it is important to make sure you have all your driver CDs located, Windows CD and your software CDs to ensure a smooth set-up.
It's also important to know about your operating system before you format. For example, if you're going to be reinstalling an older version of the operating such as Windows 98 or Windows ME then you should have a Windows 98 or ME start-up disk to complete the procedure. In this instance, you would restart the system with the start-up floppy in the drive. Upon system boot, you will choose to have CD-ROM support. Once the files load you can then choose to run the format command on your main drive (usually C drive). If you are using Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Vista the Windows installation process offers "format your hard drive" as an option. Here you would ensure your computer is set to boot from CD-ROM (a setting in your system BIOS), insert the Windows CD and restart the computer. From there you will be on your way to reformatting.

As you can see there are many options to formatting a hard drive. Hopefully this gives you a good understanding that most of the operating systems today do the formatting for you, all you need to do is pick that option as you follow the onscreen steps when you install either your Restore, or Operating System.

Good Luck,

Mark
