Sounds like your drive has failed. Fit a new drive of the same size and format it with the utility in your digi box.

Can i recover recordings from broken set top recorder


Most of these set top boxes use encryption for the recorded material. This has to do with copyright protections, a lot of legal stuff, and etc.

Get another box of the same model, and activate it on the same account. Try swapping out the hard drive or SSD module to the new box. In many cases this works. Some of the newer high end boxes are now using SSD technology to hold the recorded files.

If your box is with a cable or satellite service provider which is should be, some of these providers provide a service to transfer the files from the old defective box to the new one as long as the hard drive, or SSD module is okay.

Control Panel, Computer Management, Disk Management. Check that your Samsung disk is present. If it is present, does it have a drive letter assigned? If not Right Click and Assign Drive Letter.

If drive not present you should check power and data connections.

External hard drive not accessible


A Hitachi USB external hard drive is a device that acts as portable, removable storage for your personal computer. If you need additional space to house files on your computer but don't want to go to the trouble of installing an internal drive inside the case, a USB external hard drive is your best option. These drives are "plug and play" devices, which means that very little can actually go wrong. If you're having problems, fixing them shouldn't take more than a minute or two.

Check your connections. A USB cable needs to be connecting your Hitachi external hard drive to your computer. Your external hard drive's power cable also needs to be plugged into a functional wall outlet, surge protector, extension cord or power strip. Make sure your Hitachi USB external hard drive is turned to "On." An "On/Off" button is present on the front of the unit. If the indicator light around said button is not illuminated, the drive is "Off" and your computer won't be able to recognize it. Press it to turn it on and then try to access your drive again. Format your hard drive. If your Hitachi USB external hard drive doesn't currently have a file system on it, you won't be able to use it to store data. Open up the "Computer" icon in the "Start" menu. Right-click on your USB external hard drive's icon and click "Format." Click "Start." This will install a file system on your Hitachi USB external hard drive. After this process is finished, you will now be able to use your drive. Restart your computer. Certain models of computers (especially older models) won't recognize new hardware unless your computer boots with the hardware already connected. Leave your USB drive plugged in and restart your computer. Once you do this, your Hitachi USB external hard drive should appear as normal in the "Computer" folder with all of your other drives. Hope this helps.

My Western Digital 320GB external hard drive not accessible


i noticed you ran the chkdsk utility on this drive did you try to repair bad sectors or just files

click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes


automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start


you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive


I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box if still no joy


try to use the external hard drive in a different computer and check whether you are able to access the data that is present on the external hard drive or you can try to connect it to a different port and check


hope this helps

Original xbox it freezes then a box with a circle with a red x and says.A problem has occured.Please restart your Xbox


Hi,

Check that you have reconnected the IDE cables to the DVD drive and the hard drive and that they both have power. I think this happens when the xbox cannot detect one of the devices.

Either the hard drive is bogus or the electronics of the external adapter is the culprit. Take out drive and hookl directly to mo bo as a secondary drive. If recognized drive is ok and the box is at fault.

After connecting the external drive to the computer give it a few seconds for the computer to find the external. After that click on the start menu of you computer, right click on "Computer" and click "Manage". This should bring up a new window, in there you'll see "Disk Management", click on that. You should now be presented with all the disks connected to your computer, your new drive should be there, either listed as not initialized, or empty space, you should be able to right click on it and either initialize it and/or format it to NTFS
