Pherhaps the hard disk has a bad sector on it, and dos automatically partition the hard disk, check the jumper diagram on the hard disk and fix it back to the highest volume. and make sure you run the partition carefully

Blue 500 GB not recognized by Sony Vaio laptop


Hello, Assuming the drive works and the laptop's usb port is good then the problem could reside in a couple of areas.. 1. The file system of the Blue hard drive may not be recognized by windows on your Vaio, this is most likely due to the fact its was formatted with a Mac (and therefore probably using HFS). If this is the case and you need to read the contents of the disk then you can install mediafour's macdrive (http://www.mediafour.com/products/macdrive) this will allow your vaio to read the mac disk. It is free for 5-days so if you just need to access some files you can do this at no cost. 2. The drive may not have been partitioned and formatted yet, in which case for windows XP follow this microsoft guide http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313348 and for windows 7 follow this http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Create-and-format-a-hard-disk-partition
Hope this helps

Hard Drive lost capacity


You cannot just 'loose' most of the capacity on a hard drive unless you have some serious issue and if that was the case, I would not even recommend you using it! What I suspect, because of its size, is that you are only seeing one of the formatted (recovery) partition. In order to use the rest of the hard disk, with the proviso that you want to keep the existing small partition, you need to create and format additional partitions. This is not a trivial task, but the following is the summary on where to find the facility: Control Panel -> Admistrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management -> Your Hard disk will be displayed with all existing partitions: after which you can use the context menu to delete/create partitions, Format partitions and assign a drive letter so that you can use the formatted partitions. Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

MY C drive Booting drive is 30GB, in side c drive file properties is showing 20GB bt free space is showing 2GB


Its probably formatted not to use the entire space of the disk, is there another partition or "D" drive where your restore/backup stuff is? That could be take up the rest of the space. Hard disks are always described as being a certain size but can be formatted by windows tlo split up the drive into smaller chunks called partitions. Your C drive/partition might be way less then 30Gb therefore only showing up as 22Gb

Hard disk and ram


Hello Kevin Shaggy...

Let me see if I can help you out a bit...
Adding a 160gb to a 40gb does give you 200gb. BUT!!! you will loose a little bit on each one after formatting the harddrive. The new drive will wind up being about 157 or 159gb give or take a little.
ANY harddrive partition, whether it is a c:, d:, etc...you DO have to format EACH drive letter.
If you partition your 160gb harddrive into 2 parts, (2) 80gb drives, then they would get two drive letters and both of them get formatted.
IF the 40gb drive is C: then the new 160gb partitioned in half would be D: & E:.
CDROM Drive would be F: and so on....
Floppy Drives, CDrom Drives, DVD Drives, you do not have to format like a hard drive...

If you add a 1gb stick of memory to your existing 256mb stick of memory then you WOULD have 1gb + 256mb. If you remove the 256mb and just add 1gb, then you would just have 1gb.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 160GB


You don' t say what OS or even type of computer (PC, Mac, Windows XP, 98, vista etc) you are running, or whether the drive has been used before. If it's a new drive then it probably needs formatting, so you can allow the OS to do that. If it contains data that you need then DO NOT allow the OS to format it.

If you know it is formatted & contains data, then it sounds like the OS is not recognising the format. Windows 98 typically won't recognise NTFS disks formatted on Windows XP for example or Linux Ext3/4 format disks won't be recognised by Windows. In the latter case, you can download a free driver which will do that for you - google Ext 4 and Windows.
