Data recovery I have a 40GB external hard disc which i connect via usb port to my toshiba laptop.The external hard disc developed a problem,it was not mounting, but with the use of getdata back software i was able to retrieve data from it and then copy the data to my laptop,after which i formatted the external hard disc and started saving entirely new data in it. Unfortunately due to a fire outbreak, my laptop was burnt to a useless state.This tragedy caused me to buy a new HP laptop of 250GB hard disk ,2G RAM and 1.87GHz processor speed.My external hard disk however was not lost in the fire.The external hard disk also works well with my new laptop.My problem now is ';how possible is it to retrieve the information that was initially in the external hard disk before i formatted and saved new information on it?';Is there any software or technique that can be used?I am referring to the information that was on the external hard disk when it had a problem, that is the info i was able to save to my laptop using get data back software .I tried using getdata back software again but it only displays the info that is on the hard disc after formatting.I will be overjoyed if a solution to this is been posted to me ,considering the importance of this data.I can be reached via my email at binbuba@yahoo.com.Thank u. Still need a solution for this problem

I got an old laptop and I bought a new toshiba laptop I just wanna ask how do I transfer my application and files from my old laptop to a new one using external hardrive,also wat external hardrive,and also...


Hi,
You can transfer the data files only from the old laptop to the new one. You cannot transfer the installed applications/software. Software are required to installed again on the new laptop afresh.
To transfer the data you can use external portable hard disk, which can be connected to the PC using any USB port (just like pen drive) and you can copy - paste the required data to the external disk just like you copy data from one partition to another. After copying the required data, you can connect the external drive to new laptop and copy the data to the new laptop. You can use external drive of any brand/ capacity. However, it is better to have an external drive with larger capacity, so that you can transfer the data in one go.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Connect your old hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter (better still insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and you can use it as an USB hard drive), then plug it into the USB port of the Toshiba.
The Toshiba will see this as an external storage device, and you can open the various folders and files to copy/backup.

I accidentally erased my dvd driver for my toshiba satellite m40/m45 series laptop, and I cannot even use my recovery disc to reinstall it, because I cannot use my DVD player to use my recovery disc.


Option 1: Download the DVD drive from the Toshiba website for free and install it.

Option 2: If you could manage to a get a external DVD drive that can be connected by the USB and use your recovery disk to get a clean install.

The first option would help to fix the problem withouth going for a clean install. But in case you are going for Option 2, then I would recommend you to take necessary backup of all your data.

Remove Hard Drive, connect it to a USB to Hard Drive "Dongle" & recover your files that way. When you connect your drive & dongle it will "Show Up" in My Computer as a "Drive" as such you can Copy, Cut & Paste between windows..Of course you would have to use a friends PC to do it as yours now is inoperative. When you have all what you want. Reformat the drive and put it back into your laptop and reinstall windows and apps.

My fujitsu laptop recently had a new hard drive installed in it ,but i want to transfer the data i have on the old hard drive that was removed from laptop to my new hard drive. I bought the all in one...


The Coolmax adapter is an USB hard drive adapter that can connect various types hard drives to your computer. This is used for testing and and transferring data to and from hard drives connected to the computer via the computer's USB port.

This Coolmax USB hard disk adapter can connect a 2.5-, 3.5- and 5.25-inch IDE or SATA hard disk to a PC. The black adapter box connects the hard disk, while the secondary power plug/adapter powers the drive. In the case of smaller notebook or SATA disks, the power cable is plugged directly into the adapter (as opposed to straight into the IDE hard disk).
The red USB cable, meanwhile, can be used to power hard disks directly from the host PC's bus via another USB port.

Connect the hard drive to the adapter as detailed above, power up your computer and plug the Coolmax USB cable into the conputer's USB port. The computer will detect and see this as an external drive, most likely as a E drive (the next drive letter that is available). Click on this drive and open to open the folder/s where your data is stored then select the folder/s and/or data and copy them, then open the hard drive on the computer and paste the folder/s and/or files onto the new hard drive.

Operating System Not Found, Can't Use CD Drive


I'm afraid you have a hard disk problem, it has probably failed.
If you have entered your BIOS and the hard disk has been set to auto (detect) and when you boot up and you press F1 to continue and get a message "Operating System not found" then you have most likely a dead hard drive.
There is a slight chance you may be able to recover data from this hard drive. (A lot of users make a mistake of not backing up their data and eventually they learn from this mistake).

To try to recover your data, you need a USB adapter that you can attach it to your faulty drive and then you need to connect this USB device to a working computer. When you connect it to the computer, anf if you are lucky you will be able to see your hard as an external hard disc, if not then you are out of luck. There are companies that can recover data from dead hard drives, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their service.

It sounds like you also have a faulty CD drive, without a working CD drive you will not be able to install Windows on a new hard drive in your Toshiba. Looks like you also need to by a new CD drive. This CD drive or your external CD drive has to be able to boot up as a first device to install the Windows CD.

Usb 2.0 error


did you connect directly to your laptop or you connected via external USB Hub?? Your notebook model should support USB 2.0 ...so it should not face the problem you post..unless you're not connecting it directly.
