External Harddisk Volume name not being displayed correctly

Q: External Harddisk Volume name not being displayed correctly

I use windows 7 ultimate edition - 32 bit
I have a Toshiba Harddisk of storage capacity 1 TB. When I first bought it, I renamed it to "TOSHIBA".
At first, the computers to which I connected my external harddisk showed the correct names but over time, the computers started showing the name as Local Disk.
 The disk management menu has the correct name (TOSHIBA).
When I use the safe mode, the name is correctly displayed.
Some where in the net I saw about using autorun.inf files to change the volume label.
But when I rename notepad file in the harddisk to autorun.inf it doesnot get renamed. And change back to previous name itself. Not even in the Safe mode. ( I am the admisitrator) 
 How can I make windows to display the correct volume label?
P.S:  I have tried plugging in it various computers with windows 7.
         All computers show the harddisk name as Local Disk in normal mode and TOSHIBA in safe mode.
I plugged it in a computer with Windows XP.  It showed correct name in normal mode.

Preferred Solution: External Harddisk Volume name not being displayed correctly

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, and Welcome
In an admin account open Computer. Right click on the External drive, select Rename and type TOSHIBA. Does the name stick at when you safely remove and then attach the drive again?

I'm trying to figure out how I can interpret this:


for Windows 2000 server

A:harddisk volume

That's the Master File Table - with an NTFS volume, it's what tells the system where on the hard drive each file is located.

If that file gets corrupted, you will get file system errors.

It can be repaired by running a CHKDSK on your drive (alternatively with the /R parameter, to repair bad sectors, or at least move any recoverable data from a bad sector to a new location.)

A:images not displayed correctly in ie

Welcome to TSG!
I went to the sites mentioned and I too cannot view many of the images. I read the source and tried all the links specified for those pics and found them all to be dead links! Not sure why the system locked for you at those specific sites but they do have Shockwave embedded and lots of Javascript. Off by one browser ignores much of Java and shockware I believe.
Make sure you have the latest Shockwave update and also when you went to MS update make sure you downloaded the Java VM.

Hi, hopefully someone can give me some assistance with this issue:

For a couple of days, any images that are on my emails are not displayed, but have the small red cross on them, even if the emails are not new.
I'm guessing there's a security setting or something that I need to check- anyone any ideas how to rectify this?

(BTW i use XP SP2 [this could have something to do with it?] and OE v5)

First I want to apologize if this doesn't belong in this thread, but it seemed the most appropriate at the time.

My computer has three monitors, one monitor is connected DVI, one HDMI, and the last one is Display Port. The two side monitors are 1080p 60hz and the same model Acer. The primary monitor is a Dell 1440p 144Hz monitor which is connected via Display Port.

Every time there's an Nvidia graphics driver update, it resets my default audio to one of the monitors, then changes my wallpapers to the same wallpaper that's on my primary monitor. So what ever is on the Dell monitor gets duplicated to the other two.

I just went through an update like a week ago and it changed all my monitors to the same thing. I didn't feel like messing with it, so I just left it. This fine Saturday morning, I found a pretty cool Harley Quinn wallpaper, a random wilderness one and a nice painting of Zelda that I wanted to display.

When trying to set each monitor's wallpaper, I noticed it only shows Monitor 1, and two Monitor 3's. And anyone one of those Monitor 3's changes them all.


Set for all monitors = Changes all monitors to the same wallpaper
Monitor 1 = Changes Monitor One
Monitor 3 = Changes all monitors to the same wallpaper
Monitor 3 = Changes all monitors to the same wallpaper

It's quite odd.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

When I surf the web with IE8 there are blank places where there should be info. for me to click on. Example: When I registered for techguy, it said put answer in box but showed no box, just blank area. Or same senario but instruction says click here to continue (or whatever) but there is nowhere to click unless I slowly move cursor around where I think I should click and it turns to a hand symbol. Then click and go. Happens on almost any page. I think it possibly is a java script error because when the cursor turns into hand I look in status bar and it shows Java:0 or it is just blank. I have java 6.0 with updates installed.

A few months ago, my folders in windows explorer started having this problem where the icons of the files inside no longer appeared. This only occurred after a windows update, but I haven't been able to identify which one. I've discovered that restarting the laptop fixes the problem, but only for around half an hour. Running CCleaner also disrupts the folders. It applies to all personal folders. See attached picture.

The folders 'Other I' and 'Other II' are how they should look. The other four folders are displaying incorrectly.

Does anyone know why it might be doing this and how I can fix it permanently?

     It seems that every time that I boot up this laptop, it tries to configures updates that Windows Updater has installed. However, they always fail to configure, resulting in a 15-20 minute wait before getting to my login screen. Honestly, it gets annoying. I've tried doing multiple actions to resolve the problem: updating in a clean boot, attempting to delete the pending.xml files (there are about 292 of them!), running SFCHost, and I really do not want to System Restore this laptop. I couldn't even delete the pending.xml files due to administrative rights I could not surpass. I don't know anything else to attempt to fix the problem. If anyone could help, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Please see the attached screenshot

Thank you for your help in advance,


A:Incoming messages not displayed correctly through Windows Live Hotmail

Hi enipuskas, welcome to 7F!

When you say incorrectly you mean all those accents above/beside the letters. The fractions, % signs and ??
Is this all incoming messages or just from certain senders?
Has this just started?
How long have you had your HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC?
Is the dv6 fully updated?

I have to look back in my posts, but there was a similar problem, and it was narrowed down to incorrect encoding by the senders email system.

There could also be a conflict in language packs. Have you installed any?

For the time being you could try running: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker, run it at least three times even if it reports all is okay.

i bought an external hard disk its western digital 320gb, i observed data transfer rate of that disk is 30-40mbps only but ability of usb2.0 is 480mbps, how come very less data transfer, is there any way to increase it or any other application to increase it.

help me in resolving
thanking you

A:external harddisk

Transfer rates externally (i.e. USB or Firewire) are recorded in mega bits per second, however ATA and IDE protocols are measured in mega bytes per second. This means 480bp/s translates to 60MB/s (taking into consideration 1 byte = 8 bits). It seems the speeds on external USB drives are bottlenecked at around 40MB/s anyway - so if you're missing out, it won't be by too much.

Speeds also depend on how your external drive (well, inside the enclosure) works and reads the information off the disk. For example, reading from the outer edges of the disk will result in faster transfer rates than if it was reading from the inner part of the disk.

This little raindance will usually fix this issue.

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG
-------------------------- cut here --------------------------------

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]

-------------------------- cut here --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

A:External HardDisk help needed

Just to try something else, you might use Partition Wizard standalone bootable CD. Just curious as to whether or not the drive is visible outside of Win7 itself.

To be honest, I actually don't know if it will be usable on the external USB drive (assuming it could be seen), or whether you must use the Win7 version while under Win7 in order to see USB-connected drives. I can't find specifics on what PW standalone can see. And of course, if Win7 doesn't see the drive I doubt that PW running under Win7 would show it. That's why I'm curious about the PW standalone, if it really does support external USB-connected drives.

But, worth a try. If the drive IS visible to PW standalone, you can use it's "explore partition" operation to at least confirm that all of your data is still there, at least that the folder/file structure is unharmed.

I see you said that it's not visible any longer to both your desktop and your laptop, so that's certainly an ominous sign. But if the "new hardware detected" sound is coming from both machines, that's perhaps an encouraging sign.

Have you called the drive's manufacturer fro possible support from them?

A:external harddisk not accessible

External drives are generally less reliable than internal ones. This is because of the connection interface inside the enclosure, rarely is it actually the drive itself. That's why the problem plagues external drives (all makes, not just WD) as compared to internal ones. Some say it's because the small enclosure (compared to a PC) restricts heat dissipation, especially in external drives without a cooling fan (and most don't have one).

Since it's new I would return it, either to the shop or to WD (you'll need to contact WD and ask for authorisation (an RMA) before returning it for replacement.

I have purchased a hard disk case ("gate" GXM-25SU Case-kit), have inserted my old hard-disk to it, and connected it to my USB port. The device has been detected, the disk is turning, and it appears in the device manager.

The enclosed drivers are for Win 98 only, I am running XP - however is the driver installed as it appears in the device manager?

But the drive doesn't show up in the explorer / my computer / file manager. How can I solve this issue ?

I am trying to copy data from my previous laptop (windows does not work on that one) to a new computer.
I have removed the 2.5" harddisk, put it into an external sata enclosure, and connect it to my new laptop.
First it says  i need to format it to read it!
Then I see two drives, E: and G:, with G being as "system reserved" (71MB free of 99MB), and E is just 0 bytes.
My harrdisk is 500GB.
How can I read my files on it?
Can you please help me?

A:"system reserved" on external harddisk drive

With the drive attached to your computer, open Disk Management. How does it list the partition with zero bytes? Does it list the partition as RAW?
