SOURCE: My portable toshiba 500GB HD

When a hard diskmakes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard diskis faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death".
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data,then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT itwill cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

I have toshiba 250 gb HDDR250E03X i am unable to write a data of 4 gb or more(single file of 4 gb or more)..?


Hi this is a file system issue. It is probably formatted in fat32, which does not support files above 4 gigs.
To solve this problem you'll need to reformat it (my computer => right click on the drive => format), using ntfs file system (under file system select ntfs).
Note:
THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING FROM YOUR DRIVE!
So back up everything before proceeding.
After it is done you will be able to copy files of any size onto it.

Alternative solution: download winrar and split your files into chunks smaller than 4 gigs.

Good luck!

I have a toshiba 2.0GB thumb drive with nothing on it and when i go to get info it shows only 983 KB available!


Your computer may be reserving space on the drive and using it to speed up your memory of your computer. Some have default settings that automatically do this. Try reformating the portable drive to erase the contents and settings and see if this recovers your available space.

Blue light flashed on the portable hard drive for a couple seconds.How do I know if all files were transfered? Nothing on screen showed up? I have a HP laptop.


If your portable hard drive was set up as the "H" drive, go to My Computer (in Windows XP), or Computer (in VISTA), select your "H" drive and view your files (if there).

Toshiba 2 gb flash drive showing 0 disk space


You can only format these drives in mode FAT16 or FAT32.
Try to format it in FAT32 mode and let Windows choose the default sectors for you. This is the better solution.
As I can see, the operating system recognise your drive that mean the correct driver was loaded.
After a new format whith the correct params if your flash drive shows the same thing 0 disk space 0 disk space used, your drive is DEAD.
It happens if you had unplug your flash drive whithout stoping it by cliking on the icon in the notification window (near the clock), the icon is mini drive whith a green arrow. Allways unplug the USB devices by this because you have the +5 voltage on this connector and if you don't do this an arcking effect happens betwen your device and the connector.
