FORMAT NEW HD



You have to format a hard drive with a third party disk unless its a usb data drive
Restart your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key this will vary depending on your operating system

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


or if you are using a USB
insert your usb drive

click start right click on my computer select open you should see your USB drive
right click then select format

another way is to control panel administrive tools,computer management disk management right click on your drive select format

hope this helps

Hd fujitsu model mpa3026at is detected in bios, but the explorer do not display the hd.


If it is a brand new drive it needs to be initialized then formatted before Explorer or My Computer will display it. Right-click on the "My Computer" icon and select "Manage" then "Disk Management." You should get a prompt that a new drive has been detected. Follow the instructions to initialize it then format it to NTFS. After that it will show up normally.

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!

My drive showing removable disk in the my computer.but can't acess anything.also nt able to format my drive.


Remove the USB flash drive from the USB port on your computer. Restart the computer and wait for the operating system to finish loading. Plug the flash drive back into the USB port and attempt to access it again in case the computer stopped recognizing the drive for some reason.


Transfer any files on the flash drive to the hard drive of your computer if the USB flash drive has any functionality at all.


Open the Start menu by clicking on the Windows icon on the bottom tool bar. Click on the "Control Panel" link. Scroll down through the list of available options and click on the icon labeled "Administrative Tools" that has an image of a box filled with check marks.


Find the Computer Management icon at the top of the window and click on it. Wait for a new window to appear on the screen and click on the "Continue" button to bring up the Computer Management window.


Locate the "Storage" entry on the left side of the Computer Management window. Click on the black box next to the entry to expand the menu. Click on the "Disk Management" icon that appears below the Storage entry.


Right-click the name of the the USB flash drive that appears at the center of the window. Click on the option labeled as "Format..." from the menu that will pop up. Select the "FAT16" option from the first drop-down menu and click on "Start" to format the flash drive.


Return to the Control Panel and click on the "Device Manager" icon. Scroll down to the entry labeled as "Universal Serial Bus Controllers." Right-click on the entry for your USB drive and choose "Update Driver." Wait for the latest USB driver to finish downloading and then attempt to use the flash drive again.

Can you boot the computer from a boot floppy?
If so, try and partition and format the drive with fdisk and format.

I added an SATA HD to a system whose C and D drives are a WD 400GB PATA HD. The Hitachi 750GB drive has no jumpers for master/slave. After boot-up the system sees it but assigns no E or other letter...


  • Right Click [My Computer] and click Manage
  • Click Disk Management on the left side
  • Inspect the drives listed. The new drive may need to be formatted for the operating system to recognize it and assign it a letter.
  • To format the drive, right click the drive with no letter, and click Format. Choose your format (Preferred NTFS), and quick format the drive so that windows recognizes it.

Lacie sounds like its working , but i can't find the icon on computer


Your hard dive is probably not formatted. You can check if your external hard drive is detected by the BIOS during bootup. You can also check this by Right click on taskbar > properties > startmenu > customize > advanced > scroll down completely and select system administration tools "Display on the all programs menu" > ok. Click on start > all programs > administrative tools > computer management > double click on storage. click on disk management(local) here you should see your lacie. If you dont then the drive is probably not detected. If you see, you can just partition it from here and it will appear in your my computer.
