Click start control panel administrive tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties then security select take full control in windows 7


USB drives can be write-protected by modifying the StoreageDevicePolicies Registry key and WriteProtect Registry value.
click Start>run>regedit to open Registry Editor. and press control+F to open the find dialogue box and type "usb device" or "driverdesc" to open usb mass storage device or type "usb mass storage device" in the search windows. And right click on it and delete. This will set the policy value to 0. then insert your usb device. It will work fine.
# Remember: do not delete any unknow files in the registry as this will make some programes not work as usual.

If you are running a Windows XP OS then you might be able to:
- click start right click on my computer select open
- Right click the icon of your Flash Drive (It should be F:/ or something)
- Click Properties in the menu that comes up
- Click the Sharing tab

My SSD (ata ts256gssd720) is not recognized when I try to install win7, I had ubuntu earlier (only ubuntu from the beginning)


When you say "not recognized", do you mean that the drive does not show up under "My Computer" with a drive letter? Or that the OS does not even know the drive is there? It is possible that the SSD was formatted using an Ubuntu-specific file system that Windows does not recogize. In this case, the drive may be seen as "Not Activated". To check this in WIN 7, click on START, then right-click on COMPUTER and select MANAGE. When the Computer Management window appears, under STORAGE, select DISK MANAGEMENT. Wait for the window to populate, then scroll down looking for the SSD in the list. It should list a disk number, size, and status of the drive. If it is not ONLINE, then there is a problem. You will probably have to initialize it, partition it, and format it to have WIN 7 see it. Be advised however, that this will remove all data previously stored on it.

I have a gigabyte motherboard ga-z77x-ud3h, a new system install a samsung SSD with the OS loaded to it Windows 7 (64bit) ultimate and a 2TB hard drive that is not displayed in windows, however both drives...


Hello here is the homepage for the mainboard:

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4153#dl


If you choosed to install windows in ahci mode, you have to make this setting again in order to boot correctly from the drive.

Is the 2 tb hd visible in the bios ?

If so you have to format the drive in the windows system when running, in order to use the drive.
A format of a drive can also be done when installing windows.
If the hd drive is brand new its not formated.


A youtube video will show you how you do this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzXoqZTxl_Q

Remember also to use the ahci setting first for this drive
in the bios ( if available )
Remember also to format the drive in NTFS file system.
Also remember a format will erase ALL files on the hd drive.


Good luck

Ssd won't show up as destination drive.


I'm not sure this is your problem, as you question isn't descriptive enough. But here's a solution if I do understand your question correctly.

When I have installed new hard drives in the past, I did the physical install, turned the computer on, and they just worked. Not so with SSDs I've installed. After the physical install, the SSD does not show up in the "Computer" window with all the other drives; because it's not FORMATTED.

Solution:
Navigate through:
Start > right-click on "Computer" in the right pane > select "Manage" > in the left pane select "Disk Management"

All the drives will show up in the main window, including the SSD you just installed. If it does not show up, there's a problem. Maybe one of the cables isn't fully inserted, or there's a defective cable, or a defective SSD.

You can tell the SSD from the other drives by the Gigabyte capacity, and also by the fact that it does not have an assigned drive letter (e.g. C:). Also, it's named something like "New Edition".

To continue to formatting, navigate:
Right click the SSD > select "Format" > select "Quick Format"

A drive letter will be assigned. You are given the option to change this letter if you want. Also, you are given the option to name this drive. This name will appear with the drive listing in the "Computer" window. I simply used the name "SSD", however if you want something more discriptive or colorful, it's your computer, it's your SSD, you can name whatever you want.

The other format option is for when one is installing a used HD which may have bad sectors. That option scans for bad sectors, and takes a LOT longer to format. Not necessary for a new SSD. Plus, you can scan a drive for bad sectors anytime with the "chkdsk" command.

The SSD is now ready for use, including for use as the main drive. Windows will happily load onto this drive.

Note: If you cannot find drivers for your WD drive, it may be because most WD drives do not include drivers as they use a standard driver built into the OS. If the driver is built into the OS or is already installed and the OS continues to look for a driver, your drive has most likely failed or been damaged and needs to be replaced.

According to Western Digital: "Most current WD drives do not require additional drivers on the Windows or Mac OSX Operating System (OS) beyond the ones that are included with the OS."

In order to simplify the installation process WD elected to use the standard drivers that are built into common operating systems. While there are a few exceptions to this, in general, there are no drivers provided by WD for our drives. That's because the drivers a WD hard drive or SSD uses are part of your Operating System. As such, any trouble with these drivers should be handled by the regular line of support for your operating system - in most cases by contacting your system manufacturer, IT department, or the publisher of your OS.

Internal Hard Drives and SSD: All internal Hard Drives and SSDs use drivers that are built into the operating system. There are no drivers available for download because of this. If your internal drive is not recognized, it can be caused by one of the following problems:
  1. During an operating system installation, it may not see your drive at all or may request a driver. Under Windows you will need to press F6 in order to be prompted to enter a driver. Once you are prompted for a driver you will need to remove your Windows CD, and place a CD with the drivers for your SATA or EIDE controller card. These can be obtained from your System Manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba, Gateway, etc.) your motherboard manufacturer, SATA or EIDE card manufacturer (if it is connected to a PCI or PCIe slot). Western Digital cannot assist you in locating these drivers, as every controller card requires a different driver.
  2. Your driver may be corrupted. The symptoms of this problem can vary - if it is your boot disk, your operating system may fail to load. If it is a secondary drive it may request a driver. You will need to contact Microsoft or your System Manufacturer for assistance in resolving this issue.
  3. Your drive may be damaged or have failed. A good test for this is to try the drive in another system. If the issue continues to occur, then this is most likely the case.

  1. When you install a hard drive, it must be activated, partitioned, and formatted. Open your Start Menu, then open the Control Panel.

  5. Find your new drive, right click on the drive and partition and format your drive to see it in Explorer.

My western digital hard drive comes and spins but it will not show up on any computers?


f your WD external drive is not recognized, it can be caused by one of the following problems:
  1. Your driver may be corrupted. The symptoms of this problem can vary - The majority of the time however, the drive may request a driver, or will not appear as a connected device. You will need to contact Microsoft or your System Manufacturer for assistance in resolving this issue, as we are unable to provide assistance in diagnosing your OS.
  2. Important Information: It has been reported to us that some users have been able to resolve this issue using the SFC Command in a Command Prompt. When contacting Microsoft or your System Manufactuer, providing them with this information may assist in resolving this issue. Please note that WD Technical Support cannot assist with the usage of this command line program, and is not responsible for any damage to your system or data it may cause.
  3. Your drive may be damaged or have failed. A good test for this is to try the drive in another system. If the issue continues to occur, than this is most likely the case. For assistance replacing your drive under warranty see Answer ID 8: How can I replace a product under warranty?.

  4. In some cases you may need to install a drive in order for your drive to be recognized. Check the table below to see if your model drive requires a driver to be installed besides the one that is included in your Operating System. Please note that this table includes any drive that has a driver for any reason.In most cases the drivers listed are not required for the drive to function, but add some additional funcationality that the OS supplied driver cannot provide. If an OS is not listed in either column, your WD external drive is not supported on that OS. If a driver is available, select the OS in the list to go to the download page for that driver.
