Most, if not all external hard drived do not need a driver. Connect the drive and power, turn it on. There is no need to use the backup program that comes with the drive. Use Windows backup that comes with Windows 7.

HI I have dell desktop tower computer. what I want to know if can place the cpu box flat instead of standing.


Yes you can place the CPU Box on its side as long as you do not cover any vent openings effecting the air circulation. Here is the technical side of your question; You will not affect any electronics of the computer, but we use to recommend reformatting the hard drive on its side because the hard drive head rides above the disk surface micro meters from the platter. The gravitational force on the head may affect the positioning of the head over the platter surface affecting the reading and writing of the data. However, the technology is so much better now that I would back up any critical data before you lay the box down on its side. Next I would right click on your drive and left click on tools to defragmenter your drive.

the computer for some reason is not fully detecting the ext drive if its usb then try other usb connections. if it has sata hook up try using that there a much better connection but dont worry i think youl find that all your information is still on the ext drive thats why we should all use external drives for all our important photos music and files because when the pc blows or crashes then the other drive is not affected

p.s if the ext drive can with a driver disc try reinstalling it.

good luck

Cannot get external hard drive to work


- Make sure that the hard drive (HD) is properly connected to the computer.

- Try connecting it to a different computer to make sure that the HD is the problem.

- Check the Disk Management in your computer to see if the HD could still be detected. Once detected, reformat the HD and it should work again.

To check the Disk Management:

NOTE: Make sure that the external HD is connected and turned ON.

1. Right-click "My Computer" (XP) or "Computer" icon (Vista)
2. Select Manage and click on "Disk Management".
3. From the Disk Management, you will see a drive letters
4. Write down all the drive letters and then disconnect the Maxtor HD from the computer.
5. If there's a drive letter that disappears, then that is your Maxtor HD.
6. Reconnect the Maxtor HD and reformat it. You may right-click the drive letter and there's an option to format the HD.

If you're hearing a clicking sound while the HD is turned on, mostly, it's already defective.

Have a great day!

Mylacie drive is no longer connected to my computer. When it is turned on, there is a clicking noise and the LED light is alternating between red and yellow. What do you think the problem is?


when a disk makes a clicking noise, in most cases (99%) that means that the disk has crashed. i'm sorry to inform you that the data you had on the disk is lost, unless you are prepared to pay lots of money to a company that takes the disk apart to retrieve data manually.

Freezes up During Backups


I suggest an application called "Disk Warrior" it has always maintained high ratings among us Mac enthusiasts it has a hardware test function built into it and seems to be a little better at verify and repair functions than Disk Utilities which you can try also if you haven't yet. You may also consider trying a different firewire cable if you have one handy. Other than that a reformat should have put the disk back into an original state however the disk could have been damaged by not un-mounting it in rare mac cases. If you have the time you can also reformat the disk again although I would try the first two options first.

What to do with unreadable but recognised hard disk segate 400GB


Your Windows Xp bootable CD should have an option called "Format his file system using FAT32" while installing the OS. Use the option to format it. The only prob is that it creates only a single partiotion. After installing windows you can re-partition using a third party software such as Partition Magic(please note that it will not affect your windows installation as you can first re-size the windows drive to a lower capacity and then partition the un-allocated space.
