    [Guide] Restore Missing DISK

    As many of us encountered the missing DISK problem, here's a (easy) little guide how to fix it.

    Step 1:
    Turn your M8 off and plug-in the USB-cable into your computer.

    Step 2:
    Press the volume+ and power button (SE) or the Music and power button (FE - RE). Your computer will find your DISK.

    Step 3:
    Copy all the files to your hard-disk.

    Step 4:
    Format the DISK of your M8 on your computer. Turn on your M8 to see if it worked.

    Step 5:
    Copy your files back to your M8.

    Step 6:
    Enjoy a fully working DISK with all the advantages of it!

    Open HP Format Tool, choose your device from the first drop-down menu, make sure all checkmarks are clear and press 'Start'.

    This program is blank, so I can't switch anything in fields of this program.
