Hopefully you can just go to the main computer, use your Windows Explorer to see all the files on the external. Then just use the files as they are or copy them onto the main computer.

I certainly did and everything is as expected.

I have nexxtech portable kit with a hard drive in it, it worked on windows xp, but winds 7 doesn't reconize it How do I fix this


Try your NexxTech on some other computer, to verify that it still works.

Try some other USB port on your computer.

Try some other USB device into the same USB port that you are trying to use for your NexxTech, to make sure that your computer's USB ports are working correctly.

Check that Windows 7 has loaded the device-drivers for your USB 2.0 ports on your computer's motherboard.

NHDE35 Enclosure


Posted by Decoder1 on Feb 25, 2009 I also had a problem with XP not recognizing the hard drive. The USB Mass Storage Device was reporting a Code 10 (Device cannot start). Ryockey provided the solution in that the drive pins can be offset by one set when connected to the interface. Be careful to get the pins aligned correctly, it worked for me. I also have my drive jumper set for Master. Thanks Robert!

Red Light/Blue Light I/O Error


My nx2 is working again after having the "red light/blue light/I/O Error" problem. I just:

1. turned off my computer
2.unplugged the HD,
3. took out the HD from the enclosure and plugged it back into the enclosure,
4.started up my computer without the HD being plugged in
5. after my computer had been on for a minute, I plugged the HD in and my computer recognized it and had the proper mixture of red and blue light coming from the HD, indicating it's working properly.

Good luck!

Your solution


That depends on the type of HD you have...Mine is a Maxtor 3 1/2" ATA 60 gig...On Maxtor's web site you can print the jumper settings for the type and style of the the HD you have...A side note on Maxtor's ATA HD's, the jumper setting for 'Master' on all styles would be the last VERTICAL pin setting on the LEFT.
I'm sure if you have another type (Seagate,etc.) they will have setting's on their web-site.
Don't worry if you get it wrong you won't damage the HD, it just won't work.
Hope this helps!

HARD DRIVE ENCLOSURE RECOGNITION BY MY PC PROBLEM


Had the same problem today. I finally noticed that the pin bay on the enclosure was large enough to allow the pins to be offset by one pin set. The open pins were hidden by wires. Once I carefully aligned the pins, everything worked fine.

Nexxtech 3.5" Hard Drive Enclosure (NHDE35)


I'm not saying this will solve all problems, but it solved it for me. I am running Vista and got this to work following someone's instructions from another forum.

The slot in the enclosure that you plug the hard drive into has one set of holes fewer than the hard drive has pins. This means you can plug the hard drive in two ways "left" and "right" if you will. I had to plug my hard drive in so that the unused pins were farthest from the power cable that plugs into the hard drive.

Incidentally this made the screw holes line up better, too.

Try a different USB cable. Try a different computer. If those don't solve it, it a defective enclosure. I seem to have a handful of defective ones myself. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
