Question about Fantom Titanium Hard Drive

1 Answer

Drive not appearing

I installed a Fantom external hard drive-this is a usb connection. I formated ntfs (I am on XP) then used the drive. Now today I don't see the drive. In disk management it is there, but no naming option on right-click, only 'help'. Any ideas?

    When I updated my XP software it crashed. I had nothing showing in the MY COMPUTER FILE. I then tried to use recover to go back to my original setting but it wouldn't let me without shutting down my external drive. It now will not recognize the drive and when I turn it on all it does is turn on and off . What can I do??

You formatted, but did you create a Partition? Go back to Disk Management and create a Partition on the drive. You should be able to now see it in "My Computer."

External hard drive cant format into ntfs but only exfat


The propriety NTFS file format is used by the Windows operating system to format internal as well as external hard drives. You can format an external hard drive with the NTFS format using the built-in program included with the Windows operating system. The procedure is straightforward and does not require any additional software. An NTFS-formatted external hard drive can then be used with any PC running a version of Windows that is later than Windows 3.

Plug the cable attached to the external hard drive into a USB port on the PC. Right-click on the "My Computer" icon on the desktop. Select "Manage" from the drop-down menu. Click on "Device Manager" in the left column of the window that appears. Click on the "+" icon next to "Disk drives" that is in the column to the right of "Device Manager." Right-click on the icon of the external hard drive. Select "Properties" from the pop-up window. Click the "Polices" tab at the top of the window that has replaced the pop-up window. Click the "Optimize for performance" button below "Policies." Click "OK" to close the window. Right-click on the icon of the external hard drive in the center column of the window that is still open. Select "Format" from the pop-up menu. Select "NTFS from the "File system" drop-down menu in the new window that appears. Click the "Start" button at the bottom of the window. Wait as a progress bar appears at the bottom of the window and fills in from left to right. Click the red "X" at the right corner of the window once the progress bar has completely filled in. format usb memory stick to ntfs http://www.online-tech-tips.com/computer-tips/format-usb-ntfs/

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

My computer does not recognize my simple drive when I plug it into computer


Hello,

Please note that: a drive formatted with FAT32 file system will not see NTFS formatted file system, whereas, a drive formatted with NTFS file system will definitely see FAT32.

To make it clearer, this means that, if on your system, your hard drive which is having the operating system installed on it, is formatted with FAT32 file system, and you bring an external drive, or even a backup drive which is formatted with NTFS file system, and you plug it to your system, the system will detect it but it wont be able to access the full drive capacity, you will just see it in the device manager page that it is connected.

But If it is Vice-Versa, the NTFS formatted drive will detect the FAT32 drive.

Now in your own case, if your system is formatted in NTFS file system and you plug in your external drive which is NTFS formatted also, then it means that you have some hidden partitions on your external drive, so when you plug it, try and do this:

Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.

On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your external drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.

If you see any other hidden drives there, do the same thing to it.

This should make your External Drive to be detected automatically.

Also Make sure that the USB port that you are using is a USB 2.0 port, and not USB 1.0 port, you can just try the other ports there, to be sure.


Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck!

Tried it again after closing all programs, and without touching the computer during the entire format process. The NTFS format completed OK, and everything is working right.
