When i go to admin tools my simpletech 250gb hard drive does not show up. when i go to device manager it and says its working properly.i tried to populate the hard drive says its unreadable.is it broken?do...


I am assuming this is on a Windows system.
Try looking at it with disk management.
That should tell you that it is there and may offer you options.

Broken or a virus? Probably not.
I'd be looking at the USB cable. Is it the one that came with the drive?
Some cables only pass power, and not the data lines, so although the device manager says it is working properly, that may only mean it thinks the driver is correctly installed
And the cable may be faulty.

Oh, and I forgot, is the drive powered with a working power supply? And switched on? I sometimes forget that but too.

My password is correct but the smartware application does not accept it all over a sudden. what can i do to reuse my WD my passport essential 2.0 500gb drive


Hi

How to remove and unlock hard drive password? Is there any software to recover hard drive disk password? Where to download hard drive password cracker? Is it possible to reset the hard drive password?
According to manufacturers' website, if you forget your hard drive or hard disk password, there is no possible way to reset your password or recover data in the hard disk drive. Basically the hard drive is unusable. Scary right? However, this is often not true.
Most people are not aware that most hard disk drives have the ability to set a hardware password, just like the Bios password for motherboards, thus making the drive completely inaccessible unless a correct password is provided during the BIOS POST test. Usually these features can only be found in laptops, this is when you set a password on your notebook, the hard drive together with the motherboard becomes locked.
Most experts would say if you forget the original HDD or Bios password, there is no way of restoring it by generic system tools. Unlike the Bios password where there is a master key or with the removal of the bios battery, the password is erased from the flash memory thus the settings is restored to factory settings without the password, however, this does not applies to hard disk.

HDD Unlock Wizard is a user-friendly application which allows you to easily remove HDD password. IDE and SATA hard disk drives are supported. Both User and Master password can be removed. Please note that while unlocking, HDD Unlock Wizard will erase and re-certify the drive, meaning to say all data in the disk is lost and not recoverable. HDD Unlock Wizard incorporates proprietary unlocking algorithms which allow removing an unknown HDD password and making hard drive usable again. Download HDD Unlock Wizard now! 2.8MB only!

It may not be possible to recover the hard drive password or to unlock it; however, it is possible to remove the password together with the data, thus making your hard disk accessible and usable again.

When i connect the hard drive it start working, than after 10 sec it is stop working... anyone got anyidea


The disk-drive has malfunctioned.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service".
For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

If it still has a valid WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If the warranty has expired, then open the case, remove the disk-drive, buy a new "compatible" disk-drive, connect it, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

HP Pavilion zv6100 laptop CMOS will not recognize the HD


You could have a faulty disk controller. Try inserting a different working hard disk into the HP and see if it can detect it in the BIOS. If not then the disk controller is faulty and this is a motherboard problem. A replacement motherboard may not be worth it, put your money towards a new laptop and put the hard disk into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive.

Media test failure, No bootable device, insert boot disk.


Media test failure, no bootable device error message means the hard disk has failed, therefore cannot boot up.
If reseating the hard drive doesn't fix your problem then replace the faulty drive and install Windows on the new drive to get the computer operational again.

Need to drop email account


Their might be various spams,bulk and junk emails that might have got accumulated over the time of the usage of the Dell Hard Disk, according to me many unwanted and unrecognised programs such as WORM/Virus and the possiblity is that the email's constant traffic of new mails and Various E-bombs coming in might have conflicted with the Dell Hard Drive as they bring with them certain copied patches and files that get accumulated in the hard disk and so the hard disk faces problems in functioning properly.Thus,often giving certain messages like ' The Email/ISP is blacklisted' or 'Need to Drop email account'.In general the Email might be conflicting with the configuartion of the sytem and/or with the Space of the Dell Hard Drive.

External disk is not been detected


Check the BIOS setting, make sure the hard disk is set to Auto (detect) or change the settings to default settings (your BOS may not have this option) then save and reboot laptop.
If the hard disk has not been detected and/or Unable to find the operating system, it means you may have a faulty hard disk or a faulty hard disk controller or the hard disk may not be making proper electrical connection.

To reseat the hard drive, remove the hard drive and reinsert it into the laptop a few times and see if it boots up..
If it still does not see the hard drive then the fault is probably the hard disk. To test if the hard disk is faulty, remove the hard disk and insert it into a hard drive USB adapter and connect it into the USB port of a working computer. If you don't see this drive as an external drive then you will know its faulty. Then you will need to purchase a hard drive, insert it into your laptop then install the Windows operating system and all your device drivers and programs to get your laptop operational again.

If the hard drive is OK the the fault is with the disk controller, and it is near impossible/expensive to repair the motherboard. Put your money towards a new laptop and put the hard disk into a USB hard disk adapter case and use it as as a portable external hard drive.

Best of luck.

Message: Oh dear, this hard disk isn't working properly.


I have fixed this, and I hate this player, however this is the solution

I've uploaded ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED on this rapidshare link, I format my player and bringit back to life with only this...
http://rapidshare.com/files/106001227/Player.rar.html

1.- unrar to the player
2.- try if it works, if not go to 2.1
2.1.- install the software, included in the rar file, then try if it works it should

IMPORTANT: when you have manage to make it work do this, it will save you a lot of time

1.- browse your player to the system/data folder and backup those files, if you get any future troubles (like no music found, strange characters instead of artist's list) replace those files with your backup, backup those files always after adding new music!!!

2.- save the rar file I've uploaded, if you have the wmp plugin already installed and you get the "Oh dear this hard disk doesn't work" message again, just format the player, and put every single file from the rar to the player

3.- excuse my english...
any further problems --> msn: sebastianoo7@hotmail.com

4.- help other virgin 5gb users

16 bad sector


Scandisk(or whatever) should mark those sectors as bad, thus preventing them from being used. But no, you cannot erase them, they are physical areas of your disk that cannot properly hold data. Bad sectors are not uncommon, and nothing to be alarmed about, but a loud hard drive is...
