When I look in disk manager it shows my external hard drive is in raw


DO NOT FORMAT YOUR DISK. It has been damaged; how easy or even possible to recover your data depends on the degree of damage.
Try your HD in another computer; if it works, make a back-up of your files on another disk.
To understand what RAW format means, try this
http://www.ehow.com/facts_7167186_raw-disk-format_.html
or look for it in Wikipedia.
By searching the internet ("raw disk has data on it"), the first article I found was this
http://html5.litten.com/how-to-fix-external-disk-drive-suddenly-became-raw/
which may be of some help.
In that article a Linux system is used to read and modify the disk. There other tools for repairing this type of fault, for example, http://www.easeus.com/resource/recover-raw-disk.htm
(I do not know if this free:: the information in the article is certainly free though)
Recovering your files will probably mean a lot reading, research and time, but you might be lucky. I recommend reading any article you are going to use through to the end before you start with it.

After I format my hardisk for several times and the file system still showing RAW. how to make it ntfs.


Install the drive on a working computer and access through disc management. that will allow you to initialize the drive and format it ntfs. Goto my computer right click select manage select drive management. This works on XP if you have other OS than search for disc management for your OS.

I was using a 500mb conner hard disk but now 4.5gb seagate hard disk but can't format it


you have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive

Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup


Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart


note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating systemor if you are trying to format a usb drive

insert your pen drive

click start click on my computer you should see your pen drive

right click then select format

another way is to control panel administrive tools,computer management disk management right click on your drive select format

hope this helps

My 500 GB store jet Transcend USB hard drive not detected. when sometime its detect, message is flowing " Hard disk is not formatted. do you want format now? " please help me what i do ?


You will need to format the disk so the file structure can be read by your operating system. Formating the disk will wipe all data from the disk but will only need to be done once.

Hard disk failure


Hi, assuming the hdd won't finish a format, it is possible that some sectors are damaged. If you still want to try and use the hdd even with these defects, you can try and partition the hdd. Guesstimate at what point the hdd stops responding and really guess where the defects end. With this info, partition the hdd into 3 with the middle containing the defective sectors. Format only the first and third partitions. For simplicity, Win98 might be easier to work with rather than XP. Hope this be of some help. Do post again and let us know how things turn up.
