I have a hp pd500a portable hard drive & when I try to connect it to my laptop it keeps telling me that I need to format the drisk drive etc?


Yes. It would appear the drive has become corrupted.

However if you use a file recovery program like Recuva you should be able to get some of those files bak.

My "t " bird hard drive fell onto floor from about


The '1TB' device is 10 to a large power.
The '930GB' is 2 to a much-larger power.

Since '1GB' is 1,073,741,824 bytes,
multiplying 930 times 1,073,741,824 is equal to 1TB.

So, your device is 100% empty -- all 930GB are "free" space.

I have a verbatim hard drive 300 gb i used for about 6 month already, i have i lot data, now i plugged in the computer today i have this messega\r\nthe disk in drive E IS not formatted. do you want to...


Try the Verbatim in some other computer, to see if it can be read at all.

Or, search online for "USB file scavenger" software -- it reads through the device, block-by-block, and may possibly be able
to "stitch" blocks together, to recreate your files.

The device probably has a one-year warranty.
Eventually, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Cannot copy more than 4gb file on a 500gb external usb hard disk


You have to change your hard drive from FAT32 to NTFS,because FAT32 limits the size of transferred files to 4GB. To do so ,go to Start,right click on Computer and select Manage. Under Storage click on Management.Find your hard drive in the list and right click on it and select Format. Under File System change the Answer to NTFS and leave the Allocation Unit to default. Click on Perform Quick Format if you want.click OK and confirm your OK with losing all data on the drive,and your done.

Western Digital 1TB hard drive, worked all day, now giving me error, "reformat disk before using".. do I dare press yes?


Only if you want to lose all your data, if you just bought this earlier return it exchange for another one, this is kind of a bad sign of hard drive health. Did you bump it or drop it? if you cant or dont want to swap it out i'd suggest shutting down your computer and powering down the drive, then plugging it all back in and starting it up, you'd be amazed how often that fixes issues with new products. If you're ok with starting from scratch you can certainly reformat to attempt to fix a formatting issue but it will erase all data on the drive.

Hope that helps, Good luck

Maxtor 320gb External hard Drive Question


You can remove and disconnect the drive with out losing data. Since it is a usb drive its always best stop the device before removing. You do this by clicking on the icon in the task bar . It has a green arrow above it. As for the safety drill have not use it but should be able to get instruction once you install it ( look at the help files ) Hope this helps

Cannot Find the Product code for registration with memeo?


that's what happens when you buy a laptop... lots of trial software that you are expected to buy if you want to keep using it. I would however check the documentation that came with the hard drive. there may be a registration number for the software there.

When i click my hard drive, it tell me to format it. ????


have you try to connect it to a different computer?

if yes and getting the same problem you need to call your WD for the warranty and replace it. if your up to your files inside your storage i guess they will endorse you to their third party company that will recover your data storage and it will cost a lot.
