Question about IO Magic Corporation GigaBank (I250HD35) 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

My Laptop won't recognize my HDD after trying to partition!!!

HELP!!! I wanted to partition my hard drive so that I could have a dedicated area for backup. After I partitioned it, Windows popped up a window that stated, "Windows could not load the installer for Volume. Contact your hardware vendor for assistance." I contacted I/O Magic and all they would tell me was how to partition a hard drive and not how to fix it. Disk Management would "partition" the hard drive, so to speak, but there would not be a file system or volume name. Several other messages would pop up requiring a restart or the same "Windows could not load the installer for Volume. Contact your hardware vendor for assistance," but nothing ever happens. Luckily, I moved all data over to my main hard drive before I tried to partition. Here are the screenshots of the entire process so you can see what I did.

I hope that will help you to help me fix my problem. Any other details you need I will be MORE THAN HAPPY to give them to you. I just want my hard drive back.

    When I mean "my HDD" I mean my I/O Magic GigaBank 250GB External Hard Drive.

In that case format your External HDD and see if all parameters are as expected.

Did you format the HDD before putting into your laptop? If not, try using a Linux-flavor partitioning tool such as Partition Magic or DiskPart and format the HDD.

My usb ports on my laptop only recognizes my phone and mp3 player and not my external hdd, it tells me to format the plug and play external hdd. It does not do this in all my usb ports though


Maybe the external hard drive is to large to be recognized by your computer. Some computers won't recognize real large external drives.

Another problem could be that your external hard drive does not support Windows 7.

Hi,

If happens that's the message it gives you by the machine, most likely its already a hardware problem but if you want to make sure try to do HDD scan, you can just go to any computer local center have them check if the HDD failed and if it failed you can purchase a new one.

Im using hp dv6700t laptop,i want to install xp on my laptop


Your laptop has a SATA hard drive and windows XP doesn't recognize those drives cause the operating system came out before those drive were made.

Follow these steps I found thru google to get windows xp sp3 to recognize your drive:

You'll have to use a program to do this but people explain how to do it on that page plus the program is free.

HDD not recognised


HI Your Hard Drive is previously formatted and have done different partition provided by your previous machine where you took this hard drive from. Use "The Partition Magic" Software, it will help you to fix and repartition your hard drive in the new format. I have this problem before and now my hard drive can connect with any computer. The key in this issue is any hard drive goes with the original machine has been formatted and do its own partition from manufacturer so if you take it out later for use with other machine, you will need a software to completely rearrange the new partition in universal format so other computers can recognize it. This manufacturer purpose to protect your data from hacking, stealing once you take it out from the original machine. That is why when you connect it to other machine, this hard drive will not be recognized. I has this partition magic software and can make you a copy so you don't have to buy it. Just read the instruction and you can fix it for both 2.5" and 3.5" HD. Please email me at joe_dao2003@yahoo.com and provide me your mailing address, I can send the copy software to you. Regards, pingping
