  • 320 external USB HARD drive won't boot

    After working fine for 5 months, my disk 320 external HARD USB is now showing that it is not initialized. When I go to disk management and click to initialize it, it won't boot. Can someone tell me how to make this work? I'm sure I'll have to format too, but can't find any way to make that without initializing the HARD drive first.
    Any help would be appreciated.


    Try removing the USB ports in Device Manager. After restarting again the USB ports should be recognised again.
    Then again connecting the external HARD drive.

    The second possibility is to use an external USB hub with an additional power supply.
    It is possible that the HARD drive needs more energy than the 500mA

    Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both
    ends. Remove and replace, do not just tight. For laptops, you can often clean power and

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and
    manufacturer of device to see if there is a firmware or drivers for your drive if necessary.


    Step 2: You have disc problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD

  • Satellite A215-S7437 hard drive don't read do not

    Whenever I put a CD in my CD drive, I heard the "rurr" that usually accompanies the normal sound of the hard drive working group work.

    But lately, it makes this noise, but does not read the CD at all either. I searched the download and support already - suggestions?

    I tried searching the base drivers / default on the driver download page, but they don't have em = / and restore the disc definitely out of the question since "broken" car

    Hmmm. Entendez_ you the ODD (CD/DVD drive) is not able to read disks from different manufacturers; CD (+ R R + RW - RW) or DVD (+ R R, + RW - RW)?

    If Yes, then the CD/DVD drive failure would be possible!
    If this is the case, then you will need to replace the CD/DVD drive

  • How to restore vista OPS hard drive external bitlocker encrypted after main disk failure

    I am running Vista Ultimate and my main hard drive is encrypted by Bitlocker.  I use the backup utility in Vista for backup of that my drive hard main set on a USB attached hard drive which is also encrypted by Bitlocker.  In a case of failure of the primary hard drive and installing a new hard drive, how can I restore my main hard drive (the new drive) to the USB attached bitlocker encrypted external hard? My vista ultimate OPS has been upgraded to the origin of vista home premium and so I did not have the ultimate Setup DVD disk.  I have the disk of vista Home premium.

    Create a recovery disk that the restoration of the backup complete on this topic option (including family Vista drive premium will be not because this option is only available on the Enterprise and Ultimate versions)-should not do anything on bitlocker on it (which will take care of itself during the restore process unless you configure to use a flash drive for protection - then the flash player is also required {but) not a recovery disk different}).  You can make a bootable recovery disk by using http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/windows-vista-recovery-disc-download/ with burning software like: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/active-isoburner.html and, of course, a blank CD (including backup complete PC Restore).  Be sure to get the drive to boot correctly - there are several ways to make records and this requires a way for it to work (but those that are included in the manual or on the website).

    For more information, here's a great article on bitlocker with Vista.   It does not exactly cover your question, but it is very instructive in the process and the technology (and might help you if you are facing a problem on the road) and its good information to have if you use bitlocker (which can be difficult and can cause problems of recovery if you do not just because of the extra complication of encryption (backup and restore). http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/2008.06.bitlocker.aspx.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

    1st thing to try is a restoration of the system in safe mode


    Windows Vista

    Using the F8 method:

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. When the computer starts, you will see your computer hardware are listed. When you see this information begins to tap theF8 key repeatedly until you are presented with theBoot Options Advanced Windows Vista.
    3. Select the Safe Mode option with the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
    5. To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
    6. Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.

    If that does not read this information

    the link below is how to download and get a vista disk startup repair, which you can start from the


    Here's how to use startup repair system restore command prompt, etc. to bleepingcomputers link below


    to boot from the dvd drive to be able to you will see a way to get into the bios Setup at the bottom of the screen or command menu start

    It would be F2 or delete etc to enter the BIOS or F12 etc. for the start menu

    Change boot order it do dvd drive 1st in the boot order


    and if all else fails and you need to reinstall vista are the normal methods for computers preinstalled vista portable

    Contact the computer manufacturer and ask them to send vista recovery discs

    they do it for a nominal cost of $

    also ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to get back to the way you bought

    you would normally press F10 or F11 or Alt + F10, 0 at startup to start the recovery process according to the manufacturer

    Ask them of the exact key sequence

  • My hard drive will not read discs?


    I'm a moderately experienced computer nerd, and today I met this problem I can't solve everything. Late in the afternoon, I noticed that my (DVD - RW) disk drive wouldn't read my drive, so I went to do some testing, (assuming that the problem was the disc) and I found that it would not read any disk I put in it. CD or DVD would work. If at this stage I think it's a problem with the drive itself, so first, I uninstalled the driver for my DVD player and restarted my computer, but that did not work, so I plugged in an external CD player I got earlier. (who has been confirmed to work in the past) And that itself doesn't has the same work. If at this stage I think it's some kind of virus or malware or something of the sort that could prevent any kind of disc. So I did two scans of all of the computer (1 scan Spybot) and 1 AVG scan AVG came up with nothing, and Spybot came with the usual threats of low priority. So I had difficulty all 'threats' Spybot finds it, but it is still impossible to get either of my drives to work. At this point, I'm at my wits end. I'm running out of ideas, and I'm exhausted. So, any help would be appreciated. Thank you! (by the way, I use Windows 7 Ultimate)

    I could finally understand! This idea has just popped in my head that maybe the laser needs to be cleaned. So I veerrry clean gently with one of these sweet rags that come with the latest TV, and I noticed that you can move. So I took a paper clip (just to be more specific about what I might touch) and I moved the whole part of laser to the outside edge of the disc. And then it worked perfectly fine. Thank you all for your help.

  • Windows 7 asks Me to format the Seagate FreeAgent external hard drive I've used for more than a month

    I used Seagate FreeAgent as my external hard drive for more than a month now, but recently I am unable to access Windows 7 asks me to format it to use it. Somehow I can format the HDD without losing my data?  Or does perform a work around?

    Hi NuVille,

    Before perform us any of the steps, first of all I suggest you to create a backup of the data stored in your external hard drive on another computer.

    To save the data, you can connect your external hard drive on another computer and copy all the files and folders on the other computer. Later, you can connect the external drive to the Windows 7 computer and try to run the disk error checking and check if that helps you solve the problem.

    Access the link below and follow the steps to check the drive for errors and fix it.

    After completing the disc you error checking, try to check if you can access the drive.

    If the steps above do not I suggest you try to format the hard drive. Access the link below and follow the steps to format the hard drive.

    Note: there is no way to format without losing any data on the disk. Formatting the drive will erase all data.  This is why you must back up the data before formatting the hard drive.

    I hope this helps. Let us know the results.

    Thank you and best regards,

  • New hard drive, fresh install. No boot disk?

    As I wanted a SSD in my laptop, I decided to install one in my laptop newly purchased, thus eliminating the original HDD with windows 8 installed.

    I was unable to install windows 7 from a USB boot (saying there was "no boot drive"), so I decided to use another laptop to install windows 7 and then replace the SSD in laptop computer provided.

    However, after I installed properly Windows 7 on SSD (loads Windows on another laptop), after placing in the laptop provided, I had once more the message that there is no boot disk.

    It recognizes the SSD in BIOS. I swapped the boot order to start the first SSD, but it does not recognize anything as something bootable.

    When you place the original HARD drive, with Windows 8 is installed, everything loads very well. But nothing else that the original OS on the original disk will not load.

    No BSOD, no real error message. Just a message popping up, saying there is no bootable disk.

    Is there something that I missed or messed up?

    Not a letter.

    It is first in the boot order, named: "HDD0: [insert name SSD]."

  • New hard drive. Do I need windows disk?

    I have a HP Pavilion dv7 laptop and recently the hard drive has failed...

    It was running windows 7 home basic 64-bit and did not come with recovery disks.

    im going to buy a new hard drive to replace soon and I was wondering what discs do I have to get my system running again?

    A member of the family has the same exact computer and I made a recovery disk of the Panel out of it. can I use this disc to install windows or anything? I don't really want to buy hp disc because I don't want any additional programs but if I wrong choose on a windows disk $7,100.

    Yes, you need a Windows install disc. However, there may be a way to restore from the image of the system of the other computer you have, that you say is the same. I'll get back to you on how to do it later.

    You can also use the restore disc, you created from this computer.  If it is exactly the same.  I'm not sure of the legality of it, but...
