Currupted and unreadable.

Goto control Panel /admin tools/computer management then **** management. There you will see your drive, right click it and choose change drive letter and paths now call it Z or whatever you choose. See if it will read now if not try plugging it into another PC. If all this fails i think a format is only option but choose quick format. 99% of data is still recoverable using recovery software. Good luck from Scott

I bought a 250gb hard drive that plugs into the usb on my xbox. it came wit a disc that i plugged into my computer ran the program like it told me to. then when i tried to plug it into the back of my xbox...

Your problem is the hard drive is formatted as "NTFS". Dont worry its not complicated. All I am talking about is the method in which the hard drive stores data.

Your Hard Drive needs to be "FAT32".


Right click My Computer - > Manage - > Select Disk Management under Storage.

Here you can remove the NTFS partition and recreate it using FAT32.

When you go into Disk Management, right click the partition and choose Delete Partition. Make sure its ont he right Hard Drive! Double check. Then right click in the blank space and choose Create New Partition (I think that's it). Then right click the new partition and choose Format. Select Fat32 for File System. At that point you should be done.

Hard drive is not powering up any longer

I think so, As far as i understand, your pc is not powering on unless you dont plug in you hard drive right?Check wether it is ATA, or Serial ATA (SATA)?
THE problem is circuit, and i think you hard drive is JUNK!
(ATA)..1- Take a gd look at the drive, where you plug in the power cable, and make sure the 4 tubes are far enought.
2- Replace the IDE cable.
(SATA).. 0- Replace the cable.

gd luck

Computer will not recognize one 500 external hard drive- nothing wrong with connections- other external hard drives are fine. I have tried everything

What OS are u working on? some old ones dont recognize this big hard drives, cant remmember the limit but it was around 300. Try updating ur OS if u are working on windows xp(get it to Service pack 3). I think this problem was fixed at sp2, but just to be sure.

did you try it in a different usb slot to see if its working? The price of these has declined sharply so dont worry about the cost of replacing it if it is broken.
