My window wista cannot recognize the external hard drive maxtor 3200


If it is a brand new hard drive that you got what you will likely need to do is format the hard drive first. When you plug it in what you need to do is go to start - and then right click on "computer" and select "manage". This will open a new screen that has options. Click on "Disk management" on the right of that screen. You should see your new hard drive on this list. NOTE: Make sure you select your maxtor hard drive, not your computer hard drive. Right click on the drive and hit "format" and then follow the prompts or accept the defaults. Once this finishes you should be able to access your hard drive. If you have any other questions feel free to post a comment to this answer. Good luck!

I have a dell latitude E6400 that will not reboot. Can I buy a new hard drive for it....will that work..............


Hello
you dont need to buy new hard drive until you confirmed that your hard drive has no more, for the purpose you need check in CMOS setup, if it is detected by computer then there is a chance to re-use the hard disk, you just need to re-install windows, during installation format the hard disk after re-partition.
if this method fails then you need to buy new one, good luck
do rate the solution if got help

I desperately need to buy a power cable. I tried Cables to Go and Maxtor/Seagate. No luck.


You can remove the disk-drive from the unit,
and then see: http://www.canadaram.com/3_5_sata_enclosures.htm
to buy a new enclosure, which will include a new power-cable,
and 'transplant' your disk-drive into the new unit,
to regain access to the files on your disk-drive.

I just got a new hard drive (SATA) and I need to know how to transfer everything from the old one over to the new one.


You can check with the new hard drive maker for software that will image the old drive onto the new one if thats what you want.

An imaged drive will behave just like the original drive. If you dont want to go through the hastle of reloading your OS onto the new drive this is the way to go.

If the drive manufacturer has nothing for you look for Symantec's program Ghost online.

Good luck and be careful!

My hard drive failed and erased all our stuff now we cant even make our own profile orsave anything what do i do?


Seems like your hard drive might have crashed. I would suggest buying a new one, as well as perhaps buying an Xbox 360 memory unit. It's a lot cheaper to buy a new hard drive than it is to buy an entire new Xbox 360, plus you already have a working console, just not a working hard drive. As far as I know, there is no way to fix a hard drive that's messing up. I would contact Microsoft just in case though.
Otherwise, buy a new hard drive and sadly, start from scratch.
Another thing I would try first though, is testing the hard drive on another console. If it works on the other console, it might be your original console that isn't working (not the hard drive). (You can only do this if you have a detachable hard drive though of course.) If you don't have a detachable hard drive, you won't be able to replace it by simply buying a new one and you won't be able to test to see if it's the hard drive or the console in which case, you have to contact Microsoft regardless.

Hope I was of some help, best of luck.

Transfer operating system to new hard drive


You can't transfer an operating system to a new hard drive, you must install it. When you install an operating system, it makes specific files depending on all of your hardware, including your hard drive. Your restore disks should be fine to reinstall Windows on your new hard drive. Just use a backup program to backup all of the data you want to keep since it won't be there on your new drive. Good luck.

Hard drive transfer


Hi, Yes you can. The only requirement is that the 2nd/new/empty hard drive be similar in storage capacityif not bigger. If you are planning on swapping from old to new and use thereafter the new as the main "C" drive, you might want to try and simply clone the old. There are software available online for that purpose. One good example is a "Acronis True Image" paid version. A freeware version by Seagate is Seatools for Windows. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
