I had the same problem. YOu may not need to restore the OS, but just get your hard disk moving again. You need to remove the hard disk from the epson and attach it to your pc or mac, using a caddy. The disk has two partitions. One is Epson-System, which contains all Epson software. If this is still ok, all you need to do is get the storage partition going again. The second partition is the one that contains your data. If it is corrupted, all you need to do is re-format it (DOS-FAT 32) and name it EPSON.  Put the hard disk back into the Epson, plug it in and switch it on. (If you switch it on using the battery it will still tell you to reset). It will now put the necessary file structure back and it works. 
here's a how-to on removing the hard disk. I found this on another site: To perform the repair yourself you are going to need to remove 
8x case screws (very very easy)
4x internal screws holding the unit in place (very very easy)
1x internal screw hold the battery conductor in place (very very easy)
4x screws holding the phsyical hard drive in place (very very easy)
disconnecting speaker (easy)
unplug 2 data cables (easy but be careful, lifting up latches and they drop out)
sliding out the hard drive (its all pieced togeather like a 3 stack sandwitch)


Good luck! Paul

Why windows does not see drive with data on it


It may because you either deleted the drive and did not re assign a drive letter to it, or it may be due to format, when you using Windows OS, your hard disk should be either in FAT or NTFS format, if you have linux as secondary os, you may have accidental format the drive with linux OS. Try changing the format to NTFS or FAT. Try and reply back

MY FRIEND RE-FORMAT MY COMPUTER FOR ME, HE CHANGE THE SETUP OR SOMETHING. NOW THE COMPUTER IS RUNNING REALLY REALLY SLOW. I JUST HOPE TO KNOW HOW TO RESET THE COMPUTER TO ITS ORGINAL FORMAT.


  • If He has reinstalled the OS by formatted the partition , you can't able to restore back but if you don't want the data in the drive please re-partition the drive and install the OS newly
  • if he has updated the OS without formatted the partition, please upgrade the OS again or but if you don't want the data in the drive please re-partition the drive and install the OS newly
  • If he has done any other changes, you can able to restore by Run-->restore-->rstrui.exe--> select the preferred date, where you want to restore and give next, please wait still it restore and get rebooted.
