Just plug that baby in.

When you format it you will have a new drive in your my computer.

From their you can use it just like your c drive. However you'll just select the (For example it comes up as F:) F:\ drive to save to.

Their are more complex ways of using the drive, and integrate it with your C:\ space. However when you have some hardware problems you could loose all the information so i do not recommend that.

What to do?

Plug in the drive then boot up the pc

If nothing comes up in My Computer then:
Right Click My Computer
Click Manage
Click Disk Manager
A little wizard will pop up, follow the instructions, and when the option comes to format FORMAT in NTFS! this is important for larger than 4gb files.

While your editing home movies you will most likely break that 4gb barrier fast :)

Unistalled ext hd unsafely, now not being recognized.


It could be that the "table of contents" on the external disk-drive has been scrambled. Whatever you _do_ try, do _NOT_ try to run 'CHKDSK' (or "check disk") against the drive.

Instead, look online for "File Scavenger" software, which can read through the drive, sector by sector, and try to "stitch" together the pieces, in order to "recover" your files.

The most probable cause are the Three capacitors CP150, CP114 and CP120 all located on the deflection board.

I installed a problematic version of windows xp black and now my computer does not boot up! it says unbootable INT. file then appears an error message saying that some i386 files are corrupted and then...


Hi christin454,

as windows black is a not official version of windows ( as far as I know ) and it was cracked from the original version, there can be a hundred reasons of why you experience problems. I recommend using your own "classical" version instead of this black version.
Just slam the original win cd into the drive and reboot. It then asks you to boot from cd... you just push any key and install the original.
