Delayed opening issue of your hard disk was not being affected by a viruses. It is a hardware problem. Your problem sound bad cluster. If you are using Windows XP try to defrag it by using deframentation system.

You can access that by the following command or procedure. Click Start> Program> Accessories> System Tools> Disk Defragmenter.

After opening the system, select the hardrive detected and click defragment.

Defragmenter are working to fix any bad cluster available just leave it while waiting until done.

If you found problem such bad cluster, and already fix it. Please let me know and rate my solution SOLVED.

Thank you.

    You can use disk management, goto start>control panel>administrative tools>computer management>disk management> If two partition visible it means it is being unlocked by the system cause of disk full already. Just highlight the drive available then right click and explore inorder to see the file inside.

    If not try to use data recovery but it seems you need to spend money cost $99. I can give you the software but I only need chat session to give you complete instruction.

    Please let me rate SOLVED if sound interested.

I have delete the logical drive in disk management. my hitachi 40GB IDE hdd is not detected in diskmanagement, and i cannot format that drive. ple. help me

The hard disk is not detected, inaccessible or unreadable because of possible hardware failure, corruption and/ or I/O errors.

To troubleshoot this issue, restart the computer or rescan the disk to try and return the disk to Online

To rescan the disk, open Computer Management, and then click status. Disk Management. On the Action menu, click Rescan Disks.

Just make sure ide cable is fixed properly to the hard drive when scanning.

Hitachi 80 GB. USB HDD problam.

If you plug it in and it does not appear, it may be choosing the wrong drive letter.
If that drive letter is already in use it will not appear.

Open the start menu, right click on my computer, then choose manage.
Select (on the left) Disk Management.

If it appears in there.
Find the thumbdrive in the list and right-click and choose 'Assign a new drive letter' . Make it like M or somthing far down in the alphabet.

If that does not appear under the disk management then the disk might be physically damaged.

An urban myth (which does sometimes work) includes putting the drive in the freezer for a day or so.

Also remember it might be somthing as simple as a bad cable or port on the computer. Try to access it with a new cable from a diffrent computer.

Hard disk acess problem

Hi, What the message mean is that Windows can not read/understand the filing system (something like the Table of Contents in a book) and therefore do not which and where are your files in the 80Gb. A few things you can try: 1. Run Windows Scandisdk on the Hitachi 80Gb; 2. Run any third party disk check/utility such Norton Disk Doctor. Alternately, you can use a file recovery software (such as GetDataBack) to recover/copy all your important files from the 80Gb and transfer them to another mass storage device. Thereafter, you can re-partition and re-format the said Hitachi to start new/fresh/clean. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turnes up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
