My i/o magic 320GB hard drive is screwing up. It says it has to be formatted... so I tried. Now I can't even get ANYTHING to work with it. It won't even register. All that information is gone on it.

I have a Toshiba A45-S121 laptop. I upgraded my hard drive from a 40GB hard drive to a 320GB Western Digital. Loaded Windows XP and formated drive in FPTS format. The computer rebooted to the hard drive...


Best possible solution put back your 40GB and try to get an external casing for your 320GB to see if it works.And try windows on NTFS instead of FPTS, so reformat your 320GB and install the Windows XP again.
I hope this solution is helpful.

Unfortunately when you format a hard drive it deletes anything on it so if you did this after putting the documents onto it they are now gone.

Halarious, I had the same problem yet I used norton ghost. At least you still show 160 gb. Mine went all the way to 60 gb. Here is what I had to do to reclaim the lost.
