Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the scroll to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart

Is it possible to format a HCS725032VLA380 in NTFS ?


Absolutely...just make sure you have any data you want to keep backed up. If there's no data, then it's pretty straight forward.

  1. To format right click on My Computer (or just Computer in Windows 7) and select Manage.
  2. Go down to Storage and select Disk Management
  3. You'll see a list of drives connected to your system. If the drive you need to format doesn't have a partition, it will show as either Unallocated or Not Initialized.
  4. If it's not initialized right click on the drive and select to initialize it.
  5. Once complete, the box will show "Unallocated".
  6. Right-click on the box to the right of the drive listing (Disk X) and select New Partition.
  7. Accept all of the default parameters, or change the volume name it's up to you. You might want to select quick format to save some time.
  8. The formatting will start and will be busy until complete.
  9. Once the formatting is complete your drive will be accessible.

4gb scan disk showing space as 0bytes if i click open then it show format now if i continue it shows format is not completed insert new disk plz help how to rectifie this problem


This problem is most probably due to virus infection. This USB drive can no longer be formatted in your system. However, you can try to format it by disabling your anti-virus protection for a while. If this one does not work, then try to format it on another system (eg. your friend's computer).

Try creating a new or extended partition in the unused space using a later version of Partition Magic (www.download.com)This problem usually occurs due to a previous format not completing correctly IE the MP3 player was removed from the USB source before completing a previous format. Check to see that there is not a pinhole reset button on your MP3 player (requiring a paperclip or pen to be inserted into the pinhole and pressed until a factory reset of the device completes) Much like resetting a digital watch)once reset to factory you can attempt to format the device fully again.
