How do i get drivers for gemini usb 2.0 external case (sata) actually i have ultra book there is no dvd writer


You don't need drivers for an external usb case.
Your ultra book should recognize the dvd writer once it is installed in the case. It will assign a drive letter to it.

This is not a driver issue. Im assuming this is a passport. There could be a problem with the enclosure, however if it is a passport removing it from the enclosure will do you no good. More than likely there is a problem with the drive, possibly in the firm wear or a module. Either way it appears to be a hardware issue with the drive not your computer. USB plug and play should recognize it automatically without the need for drivers, especially if your device manager is recognizing it properly then the driver is not the issue.

Hi there,

The could be only two reasons for that problem with enclosure or hd. You need first figure out which one is the problem.
Plug the HD directly to the computer and see if computer can recognize it. If computer can recognize HD and you can access it then the problem with enclosure and something got burned when power got back. If you the enclosure still under warranty try to get replacement of if you electronic tinker you might try to fix it. If computer not able to recongnize HD and you can't access it from WIN then HD got fried. I would not recommend to store any important data on HD there is always a chance it will fail at some point.

Cheers, DS

Try hooking it up to a different USB port. Go to computer on the start menu and see if your computer sees it. Try restarting your computer with the hard drive already connected and turned on, the computer may recognize it then.

3.5" usb2.o hard drive enclosure


You do not need to install a driver for Windows XP and Vista, it is already built in. The CD may however contain optional software for initializing the hard drive the first time, and for making backups later.

Do you know if the hard disk is good? Does it spin up when you turn it on? You can hear and feel it spin up.

If this is not a SATA drive, make sure that the jumper is set correctly. Most enclosures require the drive to be jumpered for Master, sometimes for Single or CS. Check the top of the hard disk for a guide to how to set or remove the jumper.

You might try connecting it to different USB ports, some are faulty.

PC won't recognize external usb HDD


You may not have installed the HDD correctly in the case... I had the same problem with my Thecus N1050 enclosure, the green power light on the enclosure would come on and the drive would spin up but my PC would not see the HDD!!??... I thought, becuase i could hear the drive spinning that i had it installed correctly but this wasn't the case, when i removed the enclosure again and FIRMLY pushed the HDD into the connector (all the way in) and connected it back up to my PC, it recognised it instantly. Hope this helps!
