You can retrieve all your files from the external hard drive with data recovery program.I have succeed with Tenorshare data recovery.You can download a trial version of it and scan your hard drive for free to check out whether your files can be recovered.http://www.any-data-recovery.com

You can try some data recovery software. You can see

It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.


If above does not work, you may have to format the hard drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned file recovery software to scan again the hard drive and recover your files.

Can i transfer information to a mac


If the external hard drive has been formatted on a PC in NTFS file format then the MAC cannot read data off this hard drive.
The FIX..
Connect the USB external hard drive to a Windows computer and copy your data off this hard drive to the computer.
Then format the external hard drive in FAT32 file format. (the MAC can read and write to data to and from a Windows PC)
Now copy the your data from the computer back onto the external hard drive.
Now you can connect the external hard drive to the MAC and download your data to the MAC.

try going to the bios and change the boot sequence for hard drive to cd
put the copy of xp in the external hard drive and reboot the computer

Unable to open after initial "set-up".


When unplugging or removing external storage devices there is usually an icon in the lower right bar that is for "Safely Removing" devices.

Before shutting down WITH THE DEVICE INSTALLED you should click on this and remove the device IF you intend to start the machine without having it connected.

At this point, try to power down and reconnect and restart to get back to where you were.

I will not be using FixYa at any time or in the future because of your deceptive tactics. The site said the service was free, but when I had filled out my question, you wanted money. This is not a business I wish to support.
