Before the operating system can recognize the drive and assign it a drive letter, you must partition and format the drive. This article explains.

Before the operating system can recognize the drive and assign it a drive letter, you must partition and format the drive. New hard drives are rarely pre-partitioned by the manufacturer. There are three options to formatting and partitioning the drive:

1. (Recommended) Seagate's DiscWizard utility is compatible with all Windows operating systems. The DiscWizard utility is a fast and easy way to format a drive.

2. FDISK is compatible with Windows 9x, Me. Please refer to Microsoft's knowledge base article Q255867 for instructions on FDISK.

3. Disk Management is compatible in Windows NT, 2000, XP, and 7.

My PS3 recognizes my old external hard drive but not my new one (same brand). Why?


Connect the hard drive to your computer using a USB cord.heck what the File System type is by going to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Manager. Select the external drive and read the "File System" type. The file system type must be FAT32 in order for the Playstation to recognize it.3 FAT32 has a limit of 3.9 Gigabytes per file, which means some high quality HD movies might have to be split into smaller files, and that makes it less than ideal for some HD content.4 Please read this entire step before attempting - going into the command prompt is for advanced users only. It is recommended that you instead use HP's freeware tool "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool" instead of following this step which shows you how to manually format your drive.Note that on all of these systems the ormating process will take considerable time (possibly hours) depending on the size of the Hard Drive. This is normal, just be patient.Windows Users Using the following method you can only format a drive to FAT32 up to 32GB in size.[This requires confirmation as I thought that was only true during windows setup? 8TB format is technically possible with FAT32] Freeware such as EASEUS Partition Manager allow you to format the entire drive as FAT32, whereas windows and other programs like SwissKnife v3 will limit it to 32GB and 393GB respectively. If the file system type is "NTFS", right click and select "Delete Partition" or "Delete Volume" for Vista.Recreate the partition but do NOT format it. Make sure you assign a drive letter (for this Tutorial, we'll use H:)Format the drive by going to the command prompt (Vista, right click on Command Prompt in Start>All Programs>Accessories and click "Run as Administrator") and type in "format h: /FS:FAT32" (without the quotes). You may need to substitute your drive letter. (note this might not work on XP for a large hard drive - you may have to use a third-party formatting utility like like the HP Utility noted above. If you receive an error message stating that the drive does not exist or cannot be found, it is likely that Vista has formatted the drive to "NTFS". Use the Disk Management screen to delete this partition again choosing the option to not format the partition then use the command line format command again. Mac OS X Users Open /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.app, pick the drive, and click on the 'Erase' tab. Pick 'MS-DOS (FAT)' for the file system type, and click on the 'Erase' button.Mac OS X Leopard Users Open /Application/Utilities/Disk Utility.app, pick the drive and click on the 'Partition' tab. Pick '1 Partition,' for the Volume Scheme, and 'MS-DOS (FAT),' for the Format. Click the 'Options...' button (near the bottom) and select 'Master Boot Record.' Press 'Okay' and then 'Apply 5 Open "My Computer" and double-click on your empty external hard drive.6 Create a folder system identical to that on the Playstation 3. All folder names must be in capital letters. In the root directory of your drive, create folders named "PICTURE", "MUSIC", and "VIDEO". If you do not create these folders, your media files will not display when selecting the USB drive on your PS3, although you can access them if you press the triangle button and select "display all". If you will also be storing backups, save game data or themes, create a folder called "PS3" with folders called "EXPORT", "SAVEDATA", and "THEME" inside 7 Load all the music you want into your music folder, all the video you want into your video folder, and all the photos you want into your picture folder. Your game folder should still be empty.8 Disconnect the hard drive by clicking the green checkmark in the icon list and the bottom right hand corner of the screen and select "Safely remove Disconnect the hard drive by clicking the green checkmark in the icon list and the bottom right hand corner of the screen and select "Safely remove. Once your computer tells you "*** drive can now be safely removed", unplug the hard drive from your computer.10 connect the hard drive to your Playstation 3 and use the extra space to save information and access all your extra content saved on your external hard drive.11 In order to make your new HDD recognized by PS3, you must make sure that: First, the file system is FAT32 or NTFs. If it is NTFs, you should convert it to FAT32 with an NTF converter.Second, make sure your PS3 firmware is the latest version. If it's not, download the latest firmware from the Playstation website and put it on a memory stick to transfer to your PS3 via a USB port. This will be recognized by the PS3 and will be used in the process of setting up your new hard drive. You should also put your FAT32 partition as the first partition on your HDD, as only this can be recognized by PS3.

Converting my wd my book essential 1.5tb/to from nfts to fat32 so my ps3 will read it to play movies


You can achieve this in Windows "Control panel -> administrative tools-> computer management->disk management". Make sure your USB drive is connected and swiched on. You will see the drive on the right of your screen at the bottom of the other drives you have. Select the partion you want to change/delete and from "actions" choose "all tasks->format-> FAT 32". you may have to delete the partition, so that windows will allow the formatting. I ahve jsut done this with my WD 1TB drive.

My Iomega Screenplay 500 hd was recently sent back due to problems. When I got it back it was in Fat32 format which restricts the memory, so I restored it to NTFS and now when I plug it into the tv it says...


Hi,
When you buy an external drive/enclosure combination from a drive
manufacturer (Seagate, WD etc) the drive usually comes formatted as fat32.
Because you have formatted the drive in NTFS the TV will not recognize the drive it has to be formatted in fat32 for the TV to recognize it.
Because of the limitations of Windows XP, you can not format any fat32 partition larger than 32 gig. (i think this also goes for Vista too but its worth a try)

The work around is to create/format the partition by booting up into
Partition Magic from their 2 floppy set that the program allows you to
create. Then you are not bound by this restriction.
You can also get partition magic on the hirens boot CD, and partition the drive that way.

You can also partition/format the drive by booting up from a Windows 98se or a Windows ME setup floppy and use the combination of the fdisk and format commands to create one large partition and format same.

Of the two, Partition Magic is easier as you have a visual interface to see what you are doing. But both work the same.

With older M/B's you may have to remove the drive from the external
enclosure to perform the actions as the drive may not be seen while in the USB/Firewire enclosure (bios limitation). The drive will have to be
connected to an IDE/SATA cable connected to one of the IDE/SATA ports on the M/B.


Regards.

Raw file system


To fix the problem
Disable the S.M.A.R.T error detection feature in the CPUCool program or similar utility.
Boot to the Windows 2000 or XP installation CD, and at the Startup menu, press R for repair.
In the Recovery Console, type the following:
chkdsk /p
When the CHKDSK process has finished, reboot the computer.
Run the program again.
The error should no longer be reported unless you start using the S.M.A.R.T error detection feature again.

Error occurs with PartitionMagic 8.0
If you encounter Error 1516 with PartitionMagic 8, first run CHKDSK /F on the affected partition. For instructions on how to run CHKDSK, read How to Run Microsoft's CHKDSK from the Command Line. If this does not fix the error, try running PartitionMagic with the /IFC switch, which causes file system errors to be ignored.
To run PartitionMagic with the /IFC switch
Boot from the first PartitionMagic rescue disk.
When you are prompted to insert the second rescue disk, press Ctrl+C to drop to the command (A:>) prompt.
Insert the second PartitionMagic rescue disk and type the following:
pqmagic /ifc
Press Enter.
please go ahead and try the above steps may be it will fix it

Copying Files to PS3


Check what the "File System" type is by going to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Manager. Select the external drive and read the "File System" type. The file system type must be "FAT32" in order for the Playstation to recognize it.
  • If the file system type is "NTFS", right click and select "Delete Partition" or "Delete Volume" for Vista.
  • then recreate the partition but do NOT format it. Make sure you assign a drive letter (for this Tutorial, we'll use h:)
  • If you are running Windows, format the drive by going to the command prompt (Vista, right click on command prompt in start menu and click "run as administrator")and type in "format h: /FS:FAT32" (without the quotes). You may need to substitute your drive letter. (note this will not work on XP for a large hard drive - you will have to use a third party formatting utility)
  • If you are using Mac OS X, open /Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility.app, pick the drive, and click on the 'Erase' tab. Pick 'MS-DOS (FAT)' for the file system type, and click on the 'Erase' button. This will reformat the drive in FAT-32.

Installing two hdd maxtor 80gb wd2500, installed win pro on 80gb went fine but keeps telling me that second hdd drive D needs to be formatted, but when i do, it tells me cannot format drive D


you will need to use a disk utility to partition the drive first...
Partitioning and Formatting a Second drive in Windows 2000/XP
To partition and format new hard disk in a Windows XP
/2000 system, right click on 'my computer' and select 'manage.' Once you are in the management screen, select 'disk management'.
A screen showing your existing drives, including the new one, will appear. At this point Windows should open a wizard to help you partition and format your new drive. If it does not, right click the new drive in the lower pane and select 'initialize drive.'
Now you must partition the drive. To do this, right click on the new drive and select 'new partition' to launch the partition wizard. It will then prompt you for how much drive space you wish to allocate to the new partition. If you opt not to use the full amount of space for the first partition, you can create additional ones in the same way up to a maximum of four partitions per disk. You will then be asked for a drive letter which Windows will use to represent the partition you just created.
Note that if you are using the NTFS file system
on your main hard drive (the default with Windows 2000 and XP Professional) you will also have the option to mount your newly created partition as a directory in another volume. This adds the entire space of your new partition to that one directory, so any files placed in that directory will reside in the fresh partition but no new drive letter is created. Essentially you are using your new partition to expand the space available on another partition. Click no to this option (unless this is what you want to do).

Once you have chosen a drive letter or directory, you will be prompted to format the drive. Generally it's best to format with the NTFS file system at this point, unless the PC uses an earlier Windows operating system
like Windows 98. If that is the case, you will need to format the drive in FAT32 if Win98SE is to access to the data on the new hard drive. Once formatting is complete, your drive is ready for use.
Regards and Tahnk you for using Fixya.. Please rate!

SATA Drive


How large is the drive? Windows XP pre SP2 will not recognize a drive larger than 120G when loading from the cd. You will need to use something like Partition Magic to partition and format the drive into 100G partitions, install the OS (it may not see more than the first partition) and upgrade to SP2 and it will see the entire drive.
