XP SP3 Write delay failure

Try and test the drive for failures using their data lifeguard software (if you get any errors, refer to the link below and if you're still not sure contact them about the error).

There are two ways of formatting the drive, if you haven't tried both already. One is to simply right click on the drive in my computer and format. The second way is to do it in disk management. To get there, click start, run and type "diskmgmt.msc", without the inverted commas and right click on the drive, format.

If all else fails, try deleting the partion first and then format it in disk management.

Western Digital 500gig external drive

it sounds like hard drive data may be corrupted. This could be due to a number of things. A power failure, hardware failure etc.. If the drive will not even let you access it you'll probably have to just format it im afraid.

MY 1g memory stick only has 438mb of space and yet there is nothing on it. How can I format it?

If your memory stick is formatted into a specific (I think fat32 but don't quote me on that) format, usually it will reserve half as a mirror copy in case of failure you can retrieve your data. To format it, go into my computer, right click on your memory card and hit format, uncheck Quick format and select the file format of your choice.

PMP-140 Boot Failure

You might need to change your format from NTS something to FAT32. Hook up your iriver to the comp. and right click the iriver drive..scroll down to format and click the arrow to chang it. My brother told me how but i still haven't tried it yet b/c he said that i needed a older comp. to do it. but i believe it'll work once i have the option to choose FAT32.
