One of the options when installing Windows XP Home Edition *IS* the option to "format" the drive.

So, just start the Setup program.

Samsung r530 laptop hard disk warning


Error message when you try to install Windows Vista on computer that has...

This problem occurs because Windows Vista cannot distinguish between ambiguous hard disks.

In versions of Microsoft Windows Setup that are earlier than Windows Vista Setup, hard disks are marked with distinct values to distinguish them. However, this method of distinguishing hard disks is no longer supported because of the potential for data corruption on hard disks.

Do you have more than one hard drive connected to your computer?

If you have two hard drives, remove the second hard drive and continue with the installation.

If that does not work, try to format the C: drive while installing the Vista operating system.

You need to select the "format" option from "advanced" within Vista installation.

Windows is unable to read the usb


When you formatted the drive for the Mac, you probably used the HFS format. Windows can only read NTFS or FAT formatted drives. You will need to reformat your external drive again. If you use a FAT32 format, all computers will be able to read the drive (Windows, UNIX and Mac - anyway). Note: the FAT32 option does limit the number of files in each directory and the maximum file size.

First back up any files that you have put on the external drive to another disc (your computer's hard disc, for example).
If you are using the M2 external disc for Time Machine backups, you should partition the drive into two sections. Format one to the FAT32 and the other to HFS.

The Disc Utility in OSX can repartition the drive and reformat it. However, sometimes it doesn't correctly format the new partitions. You may need to do some extra step, see http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~pcarbo/macnexstar.html for one set of reformatting steps. In Windows, there is a similar utitily in the Disk Management Control Panel. (Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Create and format hard disk partitions (Windows 7)) You can only format the disc to FAT or NTFS with the Windows utility.

Some third-party software is available for changing the partitions on a hard drive formatted for Windows use without losing the data on the disc. I do not know if similar programs exist for OSX.

Some versions of Unix have gparted which will also repartion and reformat a hard disc but can't keep the original data on the drive. (I've used the Windows and Unix partition managers, including Paragon Partition Manager which let me keep my original Windows data on the drive.)

I hope this helps.

Hello there! I've got problem with my MP0603H Samsung hard drive. It is not visible in my computer but in programs like testdisk or getmydataback ntfs data are visible and I back up them. Last...


Wow - Have you tried beating it with a kitchen sink?
The first problem is - Not visible in windows.. Sometimes windows will try to assign an existing drive letter to a new device, because that new device was previously that same drive letter. A common problem with usb drives. Not really heard of it with hard drives, or is this a USB HD?

Go into Drive manager again, and locate the drive by its name, in the lower window. Right click on the drive and choose change drive letter. Assign it a drive letter you know is unused. It should now show up in the windows explorer with the drive letter you assigned. Now you can right click the drive and choose format. If you have trouble with format, then the drive might be locked by special backup software or hard drive password. I cannot cover that here and now. Others may help if you repost with further problems.

I would like to know if I help you. Good luck.

Can't read the content


What's happening is that there's no windows formatting on the hard drive as it is part of your Video Recorder. So the only other option that I'm aware of (although I'm sure there a thousands of other options) is to download Slax Linux Boot CD (follow the link below) and boot into Linux. Linux is able to read drives in RAW format and doesn't need all the formatting stuff that windows needs. Then you should be able to copy the desired files from the hard drive onto whatever drive you want on your PC. Let me know how this goes.
