    Can you be more specific with the details of your trouble ... Are you saying you cannot get to the "properties" feature when you right click on "my computer"?

How do you set up an external hard drive?


Turn your computer on and plug the external hard drive into the computer.


Open "Computer Management" by clicking "Start," "Control Panel," "System and Security," "Administrative Tools" and "Computer Management."

Click "Disk Management" in the left pane under "Storage."


Locate your external drive from the list of hard drives connected or installed on your computer.

Right-click the drive and select "Format."


Select a file format from the drop-down menu. Choose "NTFS" if you will be using the external hard drive with a computer that uses Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP.


If you will be using the hard drive with an older version of Windows, select "FAT32."

This is a much less common format.


Click "OK" twice and your external drive is formatted. Once the drive is formatted, it is properly set up to be used with your computer.


hope this helps

I cnt open my pen drive..it's showing insert disk..it is a cruzer blade 16gb pen drive..and I have a windows XP..


Windows XP should be able to automatically detect and install it. Try using it on another computer that has either Windows XP, Vista , or Windows 7 on it. If it doesn't automatically detect and install it on that one then the flashdrive is dead.

New computer built, XP installed, no full HDD capacity??


Check your motherboard BIOS specs. I know that Windows XP can see a larger hard drive but some BIOS issues could limit the maximum partition.
(My XP box started with a small drive but I added a larger SATA drive later and formated it with the XP disc management software. One caveat: I was using SP3)

To expand your partition, try using a third party partitioning software option. These will often save you from having to reinstall the os (sometimes things go wrong but mostly they are good). I've had good luck with Paragon Partition Manager and Partition Magic (before it was purchased by Symantec).

I hope this helps.

(Paragon offers a 30-day free trial of their Partition Manager software; however I am not aware of the limitations of the software.)

My e book 500 GB IS NOT DETECTED BY MY COMPUTER JUST APPEAR LIKE USB MASS STORAGE AND WD BUT NOT LIKE E:


Rt Click My Computer, Manage, Device Manager and in the Rt side, highlight the TOP icon. Then under Help, click the Computer with magnifying glass i con aand wait. This forces your OS to 'Look' for any new devices.

When it finishes, close the window and see if your new HDD popped up under My Computer

If not, Rt Click My Computer, Manage, Disk Manager... or Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Manager and see if it is there. You may have to Rt. Click and import it as a foreign drive or Rt click and give it a Driveletter ;-)

If RtClicking My Computer doesn't work, Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Manager to get there.

Windows doesn't like 'foreign disks' so ANY time this happens, if OS doesn't see it, use disk manager and Import it.
