Question about Samsung Computers & Internet

1 Answer

This new drive will only mount on the computer which formatted it. Any other machine (Vista or Win7 64bit Enterprise) allocates a drive letter but only offers to format the disk. If you format it on another computer (quick or full format) then that PC takes over OK but again no other PC can mount it without asking for a re-format.

Reformatting HCS725032VLA380


Is it your primary hard drive ?
Reformat hard drive to NTFS Windows XP allows you to easily format the hard drives with its inbuilt utility. Formatting the hard drive would forever delete all the files stored on it. There are two ways in which you can format the hard disk partition - from My Computer and from DOS. You cannot have a NTFS partition with allocation unit s above 4096.

Click on "Start," and then click on "My Computer." Right-click on the disk partition to format and then click on "Format." Click on the "File System" drop down box and select "NTFS." Click on the "Allocation unit " drop down box and select an allocation . It is recommended that you select the "Default allocation " option. Click on the "Start" button. b> Format the Partition from DOS b> Click on "Start," and then click on "Run." Type "cmd" in the 'Run' dialog box and then press "Enter." Type "format drive_letter: /FS:NTFS" at the command prompt and then press "Enter." Replace the 'drive_letter' here with the letter of the drive that you want to format (for example, format e: /FS:NTFS). For help on advanced formatting options, type "format/?'more" at the command prompt and then press "Enter." Keep pressing "Enter" as you read on. Hope it helps

I like to create a Partion on a window xp computer system but it seems difficult


Hi there, here are a few tips to aid you in partitioning your system:

1. Turn off your computer and install your new hard disk. It's unlikely that you have any unpartitioned space on which to create a new partition on the drive already in the machine, so you'll need to add a new drive. New drives typically don't come preformatted, so you'll need to create your own partitions and format them.

2. Start your computer and logon as an administrator. Click Start and then click the Run command. In the Open text box type: diskmgmt.msc and click OK.

3. A Wizard will appear when the Disk Management console opens. Go through the Wizard's steps and allow it to initialize the new disk, but do not allow the Wizard to convert the disk from basic to dynamic.

4. You will see, on the left side of the console, disk icons that represent "Disk 0?, "Disk 1," etc. Your new disk should be the one with the highest number. The size of the disk should be listed, and the word "Unallocated" should be just under the size. Right click where it shows the size of the disk and click the New Partition command.

5. Click Next on the New Partition Wizard Welcome page.

6. On the Select Partition Type page, click on both of the options and read the Descriptions. We'll assume here you're creating a primary partition. Select Primary partition and click Next.

7. On the Specify Partition Size page, type in the size of the partition. Depending on what you want to use the disk for, you might want to create more than one partition. Type in the size of the new partition in the Partition size in MB text box and click Next.

8. On the Assign Drive Letter or Path page, you can bind the partition to a drive letter or mount it in an empty NTFS folder. In this example, you'll do it the old fashioned way and assign the partition a new drive letter. Select the drive letter and click Next.

9. You need to format the partition to use it. Always use NTFS unless you need to allow other operating systems on the same machine to access the drive. You can use the defaults, or customize the Allocation unit size based on the types of applications you want to run on the disk. Click Next.

10. Click Finish.

Finally, you'll see the drive being formatted. You can use the partition after the formatting is complete. You don't even need to restart.

Best of luck.

My system is not seeing the SimpleTech HD after i used it to back up my system and then formatted my system


If you are running Vista, try these steps:

Connect the drive but do not Format the drive, right click 'my computer' then 'manage' go to 'storage/disk management' view the drives; your usb drive will not be allocated a drive letter. You can set one manually or leave it for about 2~5 minutes for one to be allocated auto. Each time you connect the drive you may have to do this.

-----------------------------

If you weren't planning to reinstall an operating system from CD and then restore your data files, then what software did you use to "back up your system?" Did you clone the parition, or did you try to just copy all the files?

If the vista disk management solution didn't help, please repost with more information.

Computer does not recognize my book 160 gig


I am making some assumptions:
1) You've got the correct power adaptor and the MyBook has not been physically damaged (they are pretty rugged).
2) You are trying to connect it to a PC running XP or Vista.

So it's time to see what your PC sees: It may be that the PC knows there's 'something' connected via USB but it hasn't been mounted. One simple way to check this is to go to the lower right portion of your MenuBar and left click on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon. In XP it looks like a small gray thing with a small green arrow. In Vista it looks like a little plug. If it shows that something is connected to your PC via a USB or firewire port, when you left click on the icon there is a small description along with a LETTER, i.e. your main hard drive is almost always C:, this will not show up when you click on the icon I'm talking about because your C: drive is always there, a part of your desktop, likewise your onboard CD or DVD drives, but when youplug in a thumb drive or an external hard drive like your My Book, it gets assigned its own letter E:, F:, etcetera. It might be that the desktop has used that drive in the past and gave it a letter identification, but in the time you didn't use it you used other drives, and they were given the same letter. Now that you've 'returned' the new external drive to the desktop, it is a bit confused. So, back to that little "Safely Remove Hardware" icon. If is 'sees' your hard drive and it is mounted, it will show up as a small line saying something like "USB mounted drive F:" If it 'sees' your hard drive and it is NOT mounted it will say "USB mounted drive" with NO letter. Now you should go onto your desktop and select in sequence:
Settings
Control Panel
Administrative Tools
Computer Management
Storage
Disk Management

When you get to Disk Management there should be a vertical array of horizontal bars, showing all your computer recognized memory.

WARNING: You can screw up your computer if you are careless, so pay attention to the messages the computer is giving you. You want to find your external drive. The computer should be able to see it as a connected 'something' but if there is confusion as to the identification of the drive, it will not have it allocated by letter. So look to see if your My Book shows up as 160GB of something. If it is not there, check your physical connections, power down the My Book, plug it into a different USB port, change out the USB cord (sometimes a USB 1.0 cord is accidentally used in a USB 2.0 port and it might be a problem). If the computer does see the MyBook as a drive but it doesn't have a letter, you can click on it and SELECT a letter. This might solve the problem right away, just make sure you pick a letter not being used by anything else. Resist any invitations to FORMAT. This will lose you all your data on the drive.

Installing two hdd maxtor 80gb wd2500, installed win pro on 80gb went fine but keeps telling me that second hdd drive D needs to be formatted, but when i do, it tells me cannot format drive D


you will need to use a disk utility to partition the drive first...
Partitioning and Formatting a Second drive in Windows 2000/XP
To partition and format new hard disk in a Windows XP
/2000 system, right click on 'my computer' and select 'manage.' Once you are in the management screen, select 'disk management'.
A screen showing your existing drives, including the new one, will appear. At this point Windows should open a wizard to help you partition and format your new drive. If it does not, right click the new drive in the lower pane and select 'initialize drive.'
Now you must partition the drive. To do this, right click on the new drive and select 'new partition' to launch the partition wizard. It will then prompt you for how much drive space you wish to allocate to the new partition. If you opt not to use the full amount of space for the first partition, you can create additional ones in the same way up to a maximum of four partitions per disk. You will then be asked for a drive letter which Windows will use to represent the partition you just created.
Note that if you are using the NTFS file system
on your main hard drive (the default with Windows 2000 and XP Professional) you will also have the option to mount your newly created partition as a directory in another volume. This adds the entire space of your new partition to that one directory, so any files placed in that directory will reside in the fresh partition but no new drive letter is created. Essentially you are using your new partition to expand the space available on another partition. Click no to this option (unless this is what you want to do).

Once you have chosen a drive letter or directory, you will be prompted to format the drive. Generally it's best to format with the NTFS file system at this point, unless the PC uses an earlier Windows operating system
like Windows 98. If that is the case, you will need to format the drive in FAT32 if Win98SE is to access to the data on the new hard drive. Once formatting is complete, your drive is ready for use.

To write to the CF card, you need a card writer on your pc. If you still have problem accessing the CF card, it might be corrupted. Try to reformat the CF card with FAT16 file allocating tablet in the format option on the computer. If its not possible to format this, you probably need to get a new CF card.
