Cannot install the STOR. E ALU 2 external hard drive on Windows 8


I bought a Toshiba STOR. E ALU2 external hard drive for my laptop for girls that takes place in Windows 8.
Device is recognized, can find manual, can see autorun and start icons, but opens in Notepad only and does not install everything again.

Just seen it says windows 7 on the side of box - does this mean the product is unusable? (In which case it's a gift in the sewers of Christmas!)

Anyone can help with this problem?
Thank you very much


Drive external HARD ID recognized in Windows Explorer?

  • Had a project done with first elements 11.  All media files and PRE files were in the same folder on an external hard drive.  Received a new computer, loaded first items 11 (which of course doesn't recognize not all previous projects as it is)

    Had a project done using first items 11 (the file exported and posted on youtube).  All the media files and PRE files associated with this project were located in the same folder on an external hard drive.  Got a new computer, responsible for first 11 elements (which of course doesn't recognize not all previous projects because it is a new installation) and now cannot open the original project to make some adjustments (connected to the external hard drive of course)...  Even tried to open the last saved auto program as well, no luck.  Just get a shell of the original project, but no real media file is passed in. Then get a prompt asking you where the file "rendering-3090026..." (20 More digits) is located.  Looking for C drive and external hard drive without success. Help!


    Which operating systems are involved - old and new?

    The external drive has the same drive letter on the new computer as it did when it was used on the other computer?

    Where are the video preview and the old led, Audio preview files compared to new? See Edit Menu/preferences/Scratch discs?

    Are all the place where is the file... messages just to render files? If all are for rendering files, what happens if you click ignore for their

    messages? Can you enter into the project and render it again if necessary and proceed with the project?

    Please see the bulletin. With the above information, we will decide which way to go? It seems that a media disconnect situation has developed in

  • I can't initialize the disk for my new external hard drive

    I can't initialize the disk for my new external hard drive because the drop-down list in the Disk Management Console does not give me this option. I'm logged in as an administrator and running Windows XP.  The driver for the new hardware is not digitally signed because I can't initialize the disk.  So I can't get my new hardware to run.  Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get the option "Initialize disk" in the Disk Management Console?

    Hello Honduras1,

    Can you simply right-click and format everything first?  The drive must be formatted before use, make sure that you format NTFS.

  • How can I make a DVD of the restore hidden in my external hard drive partition recovery

    How can I make a DVD of the restore hidden in my external hard drive partition recovery because I want to recover my toshiba satellite L840 that does not respond directly to my hard drive so I put my laptop to an external HARD drive and then I want to copy a DVD recovery partition

    Your question is a bit confusing, you can boot the laptop at all? Have you tried booting in safe mode, you can make a recovery DVD set from there, the folder Toshiba.

    With the drive in the Toshiba, you should be able to use a F, F10, F11, or F12 key to activate the installation from the partition hidden started upward.

    Otherwise, you can contact Toshiba, and with the model of the product id number and the laptop for Windows, you can buy a set of disks.

  • Use LR5. Because of volume and the size of the photos, I use an external hard drive. When opening LR5 it references only the local hard disk. How can I change the refernce to read the external drive. Thank you

    Use LR5, due to volume and the size of the photos, I use an external hard drive. LR refers only the Local Drive C not outside. Where do I change this by LR read the external drive. Grateful for the help.

    Thank you

    LR is not a file Explorer. He knows only the disks that you imported photos of.

    If you have previously imported these photos, then later moved into the external hard drive, go to the library files and "update location" Panel on the files that you moved.

    If you have never imported these images on the external hard drive, perform an import by using the option 'Add' (not ' copy') to keep the images on the external hard drive during import.

  • FAT32 formatting for 500 GB Seagate external hard drive using Windows Vista

    How to format FAT32 file system for 500 GB Seagate external hard drive using Windows Vista?

    Hi MVRMVR,

    Windows will work generally only format a drive in FAT 32 if it has a capacity of 32GB, no more. To format in FAT32, Yes, would need to create multiple partitions. This, of course, you don't want to do.

    I have not tried to format a large drive in FAT 32 but I guess that any third-party partitioning software (Acronis, Paragon etc.) would be able to do it without any problem. Alternatively you can do it from the Windows command prompt.
