Your system boot order may be USB first before then the internal Hard disk. So during system boot your system tries to boot from the USB which has a drive attached to it and since the drive is not bootable the system will stop. When you remove the drive the system will boot from the internal hard disk. This is normal just remove the USB and plug it after the system loads the windows files.

Windows will not start with a Toshiba external hard drive plugged into USB


Computer starts normally in windows with a windows that is installed on a hard disk on that copmuter. In other words - windows is installed on an internal hard disk of a computer A. If you get it out and put in a computer B it wont work.

To have the things work:
1. First should set in BIOS boot up options first boot device CD/DVD, second OTHER/USB/EXTERNAL, third HDD
2. Should boot up from a CD and install windows on an external hard disk (in your case your 3TB Toshiba external HD)
3. Set in BIOS boot up options first boot device OTHER/USB/EXTERNAL, second internal hard disk e.g. HDD0, HDD1

Using Windows 7. 1TB My Passport WD external HD. It shows in Windows as healthy RAW but won't take a format. I tried writing all zeros with Acronis but it failed. Tried DataLifeguard. failed. I'm out...


just a few ideas
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
make sure the lead/s that attach to this drive have a secure seating and are not bad/faulty the light on only tells that its getting power it might not be getting enough power you might test the lead/s or
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
click start control panel administrive tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select format
hope this helps

WD pluged to a Seagate HD Media Player= no data??!!


whell th eproblem is, when u pluged it in to the seagate...... a variation of the first sector happend, or something like that, thats y you cannot access it frome vista, and propably frome xp 2, what u can do is , using special programes for fixing boot sectors **** they are for experienced users in that domain (ex of product, winpe mini cd....), or u can download any linux live cd, its totally free (google for it), i recomand puppy if you are not familior with linux, when u download the iso and burn it, plug your external drive and boot the cd, when loaded, mount the extrenal drive and the internal one (if u have one), you will see the data, copy them , and then reboot with windows and format the external drive...then recopy the files.

It sounds like it is trying to boot from the external drive, go into the BIOS settings and disable boot from external device and see if that cures it.
