In order to partition a drive, you must use the partition manager. There is a command-line version of this application that is more consistent between the different Windows OS's so I'll instruct you in that.
First we need to be sure we are partitioning the correct drive. Open up My Computer and write down what drive letter your seagate external drive is (i.e. G).
Now let's start up disk partition manager. click on the Start button, and then click on "Run" type in "diskpart" (without the quotation marks) and press enter. This will open up a command prompt window with the heading "Microsoft DiskPart...".
Type in the following command: "list disk".
This will bring up a list of all of your disks currently recognized by the computer. Be sure the drive letter you wrote down earlier is on this list, also write down the drive number corresponding to your seagate external at this time. now go ahead and select this volume by typing "volume __" where __ corresponds to the drive letter of your seagate drive.
Now that we have everything set up we will create the partition.
type "create partition [size=_]" where _ is the size of the partition you want to add, in megabytes (MB).
If you encounter any trouble or want something more than a simple partition see the full instruction to use the diskpart utility here:

If your u8 has an operating system installed, yes, you can do that.
Be sure to boot the u8 in Safe Mode to copy your files.

I would also recommend checking the copied files for viruses before you use them.

If this is your bootable drive that windows in installed on you will need to completely reinstall windows to convert it back to FAT 32. If this is a spare drive then you can right click the drive in My computer and go to format and then reformat it as Fat 32.

What to do with unreadable but recognised hard disk segate 400GB


Your Windows Xp bootable CD should have an option called "Format his file system using FAT32" while installing the OS. Use the option to format it. The only prob is that it creates only a single partiotion. After installing windows you can re-partition using a third party software such as Partition Magic(please note that it will not affect your windows installation as you can first re-size the windows drive to a lower capacity and then partition the un-allocated space.
