Question about Samsung G2 Portable External HX-MU064DC/ GB2 640 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

I have the following problems with a Samsung G2 portable 640GB: - I do not change the initial FAT32 formatting but few days ago when I tried to copy some .avi films I cannot copy and I received copy file data CRC error. - I saved the usefull data and I tried to reformat the drive either NTFS or FAT32; ONLY QUICK FORMAT is working but with no good results. I tried to format in normal mode, but the format is begining and stacked after 4%. Now the transfer is either very slow or with CRC error.If I launch the error-check tool, the checking is stacked after first stage.

CRC errors mean that your drive is failing. Return and replace the drive if it is still under warranty.

Why my HD G2 portable 640GB samsung is no more working on my home video

Most home video/TV usually support FAT32 format with 32GB MAX size. Like a 32GB USB stick.

Some can support larger Hard Disk but only if the HDD is formatted to ExFAT. NTFS formatting will not work.

Trouble with Transcend 640Gb external harddrive; chkdsk does not work.

You will have to format it. Format it in NTFS mode since it is high capacity drive. I think you are trying to use it for the first time. This also occurs if you have problem in hard drive but it is rare. Let me know after formatting, it is working or not. I will help you further.
