Boot from the Microsoft Windows CD/DVD product disk.
One of the options is to do a "full" (not "quick") format of your disk-drive. Choose that option.

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 don't formats my kingston 64gb pen drive


Hi kingkumarae,
Due to viruses , the drive cannot be formatted in many cases, however if you want to format it ,

I would recommend that you restart your computer and plug in the pen drive and then do not autorun it.

When you do that , you can right click on the drive that you find in my computer and then rightly click on select format option, and then you can format your drive.

If this does not work in your computer you can possibly try it in your laptop using the same procedure.

Hope this helps ...:)

Why does my laptop always ask me if i need to scan my hard drive to fix my problems? I'm afraid of scanning because it might delete or format the hard drive.


If your laptop has not been shut down properly then when you boot up it wants to scan fix problems caused by not shutting down properly or by power failure. It will not format your computer so you won't loose you data. You could lose a file that was opened or not saved when the computer was turned off. If you continually stop the scan and not let the computer fix these problems, it could stop your computer from working properly.

I formatted like disk drive my sony camcorder dcrsr65e via computer .now when i try to capture a video it shows format error.please tell what should i do.i need the camcorder urgently.


The computer format does not setup the drive properly. You must format the camera's HDD using the menu system of the camera. After you have the CAMERA do the format, then it will work.

Some USB deviceswill not function properly after a "computer format." Transcend flash drives, for example, have a downloadable formatting program from the manufacturer's website to properly reconfigure the drive.

I don't know the specific model, but perhaps http://www.kingston.com/support/USBFLASHDRIVES/default.asp would be of assistance.

My computer is not recognizing my Western Digital passport elite what do I do?


Have to check it in the Device Manager that the new device have been detected or not. It may happen that when the external HDD connects to the computer for the first time computer cannot detect it as it is not properly formatted in proper file-system. Open Computer Management and click on Disk Management and format the device correctly to operate.

My camera dose not read my fash card


Your card can be formatted with either the FAT32 or FAT (FAT16) system. If you aformat the card with your computer, it is possible that you are not formatting with the proper system. It is always best to format the card in-camera, to ensure it is being properly formatted. If your camera still doesn't read the card, make sure the little switch on the edge of the card is NOT in the 'locked' position.

I can not install Windows on my Compaq Evo N620c


The quickest solution here would be to put the hard drive into a computer that has Windows already running, and format it through the operating system itself. I've run into this problem a few times, and when another computer wasn't available I would use a Linux boot disk to clear out all my partition tables, then I would load up with Windows XP and tell it to write a new NTFS partition. Do NOT select the 'quick format' option, you'll have to wait through the long one.
