For that you have to make a boot-able flash drive (memory stick ) with the windows installation files on it ...try this link and see what they tell about and download an use the program ..

this may also not work after reboot cause it may need to install additional usb drivers for your computer into the flash windows..if you have any problems Google for topics..related with the problem that happens ..

My lg external hdd hxd2 works with other computers but not on mine i have reformatted my windows 7 and it does not work ?


I usually face scenarios like yours and this is what i normaly do. Firstly Change the USB ports(in other words try all the usb ports you have on the computer. If it doesnt work try to use a diffrent USB cable. If it doesnt, then open up the hard drive and remove the usb connector and connect it directly to your computer's motherboard as a slave. Here, no doubt you will access it. Even though you have re-installed Windows 7, maybe your computer needs High speed USB Drivers

How to reformat a flash drive


Hi jabbbbbb6,
The Cruzer Micro is a flash storage device that connects to your computer's USB port. It comes in various sizes and fits on a keychain. If you want to erase the drive, you can perform a reformat from within Windows' Disk Management utility. After you reformat the drive, you do not need to reinstall any drivers because Windows automatically detects the device.


To Reformat, please follow the instructions:
1. Insert the Cruzer Micro to an available USB port on your computer. Right-click "Computer" and select "Manage." Click "Disk Management" under "Storage" on the left pane of the window.
2. Right-click your USB drive on the list of drives and select "Format." Select a name and file system type for your drive.
3. Click "OK" to reformat the drive. Click "Start" and "Computer" to access your drive.

Rate this accordingly.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using Fixya.

How to reformat my acer netbook ZA3, when the time i started to perform the reformating... the "BOOTMGR is missing" appered on the sceen.


Usually that isnt an issue with the computer but what you are reformatting it with, if you are using a live usb CD or a CD to reformat try making a new copy, I constantly run into that error when im trying to get my Acer Aspire to boot to a linux build on my USB. Most of the time it can be fixed by re-doing the process or using a diffrent tool to burn the iso onto the CD/USB

How can I reformate the drive and dump all the files on it?


Formatting the drive may delete all data, but unless you have a good reason to do it i wouldn't do it.
Especially as it is not clear what filesystem you should format it as.
If you just want to delete all the files the simplest way may be to connect it to your computer and delete them from there.
You can connect it to you computer via the usb cable that came with it.
If not you can use a USB data cable, USB to micro USB.

How to reformat onyx mp3 player


You can reformat it by plugging it into the computer using the usb cable. Once plugged in, the computer will recognize it as a new usb device. Open your Windows Explorer; right click Start button and choose Explore - this will open the windows explorer. On that window, under My Computer, look for the local drive letter associated with your MP3 player. Right click for the letter and choose Format.

Mac OS X 10.4.11 SimpleDrive 1TB HD appears on Desktop only occasionally. Does not appear in Disk Utility. Have transferred files to it, light is on, plugged in, just takes several restarts to appear.


If you unplug the power and USB cables from the drive (but not the computer), plug in the power and then plug in the drive, the Mac will remount the drive on the desktop. I am having the same issue, only my old HDD used to be my TimeMachine drive and now I want my SimpleTech drive for that. The issue is that when the SimpleTech drive disappears, OS X automatically uses my old HDD for TimeMachine and all my disk space vanishes.

Very ARRGH!!!

I'm trying to find a better solution, because having to mess with the cables means it's no good for TimeMachine... and very frustrating on top of it.

Data traveler not recognize my computer


If you are using a USB Hub, try removing it and plug the drive directly into the USB port on the computer. I have a Dell laptop running Win 2k and sometimes have the same problem.

Maxtor one-touch mini won't appear on PC


To isolate the problem, please try the steps below:

1. Make sure that the USB ports of your PC are working.
2. Try to connect the device into different USB ports.
3. Try to connect it into different Windows based computer.

Question: Did you reformat this device using your Mac? If yes, there could be a possibility that the device was reformatted using the Mac OSX (Journaled). This type of format would only recognized by Mac computers.

But if it's formatted using the DOS based system, it would work on both Mac and PC.
