SATA 3.5" 2.5" IDE 3 IN 1 TO USB 2.0 CABLE ADAPTOR KIT

1 external connection kit
1 internal connection kit

The internal connect kit consists of 1 red USB connector cable
and 1 internal white male molex connector to SATA female power connector
( 1 yellow wire , 2 black wires , 1 red wire )

the external connect kit
consists of a 3 pin power adaptor (with a tiny plug to save space) feeding a power supply which powers either IDE thru a Molex connector or SATA through a supplied adaptor. Supplied also are data connectors to link the IDE or SATA hard drive with a USB port. Use this adaptor set to retrieve data from a hard drive when it is not mounted in a computer.

I have an iomega 31868500 external hard drive I haven't used in years. I now want to use it to store files from my wife's Toshiba laptop running Windows 7.


Hi Jack

It would be pointless having a hard drive fixed to Read Only.
I don't think there is a switch setting to set as Read Only.
The original Iomega (early days) removable cartridge drives had a plastic tab on the cartridge to allow it to be write protected (RO).
So perhaps the Iomega Enclosure (Interface electronics inside) is getting out of date.
The oldest part of your drive will be the Enclosure & USB port.

I would suggest you open the enclosure and take out the actual hard drive. Should still be good to use.

Drives are either 2.5" or 3.5" Size Standard.
Eg Pocket drives are 2.5" size, Slower operation as they use 5 volt only. One bump during use can kill them!

3.5" use 5v & 12v & spin much faster (3500 to 7200rpm) for high speed transfer. Eg Movie Streaming / Fast Backups and are more robust.

The internal connector will either be the older IDE / ATA type connector Or
The new universal SATA connector (serial ATA much smaller)

You will need to determine this.....

The Fix:
The most convenient enclosure these days would be a DOCK type that allows you to plug in both 2.5 & 3.5 SATA drives. AND use USB 3 as a faster Future Proof Hard Drive
Then you can plug one in for Movies and another for Music and a third for Backups. Each drive purchased separately.
Eg 3x 1TB should be cheaper than 3 separate enclosed drives.

I'm sure there is a dual DOCK also for the older ATA connector.
But all future Drives will be SATA.

Once you determine what connector your drive uses then you can plug it in to the more modern housing and format the drive for Windows NTFS or FAT32 (Windows & Mac & TV's)

Cheers
Good Luck

How do I read a barracuda 7200.12 1 TB drive? I need to get data off of it, not boot on it


Hi
The easiest way that I have found is to get a kit that allows you to power the drive from a separate wall socket and connect a data cable from the drive to a USB socket on the computer. Such a kit usually consists of four components:
A mains lead - wall socket to black box transformer
The black box transformer - has outlet 4 pin molar for IDE drives
A USB cable ending in unit for connecting to an IDE drive or SATA cable
A SATA cable for connecting to the SATA drive (your Barracuda 1Tb in this case)
The components can be seen on this Ebay site:-
USB 2 0 TO SATA IDE Cable for HDD with Power Converter Adapter UK
The one thing missing from this set up is a power conversion cable converting the molar 4 pin power connector to a SATA power connector. These can be a molar plug to go into the lead from the black box and either a single SATA power plug, or a double SATA power connector as shown here :
Molex to 2x SATA Power Dual Power Adaptor Splitter Cable Lead Hdd Cd DVD...
This option is inexpensive and offers great flexibility in the type of drives that can be connected to a USB port, 2.5 or 3.5 inch, SATA or IDE.
In your particular case you may be able to get a dock that connects to a power supply and a USB port, with an opening in the top to take a SATA drive. These tend to be more expensive and only suitable for SATA drives not IDE.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Install sata disk


From what I was able to find it looks like the board is set for IDE Interface connections for the hard drives. But you can make it accept SATA Drives by adapters that plug into the Power Supply cables that go into the hard drive.

I'll show some links below that will show you the adapters you will need.

The link below shows the Cable that would plug into one of the power supply cables and go into the SATA Drive to give it SATA Interface.

The link below shows you the cable you need that will supply the Power to the Sata Drive. It too plugs into one of the cables that come out of the Power Supply and goes into the Sata Drive.

Dll gx280 case


first off does the motherboard have both sata and ide connections or just sata or just ide? (sata are small about maybe 1/2 inches in length and 1 mm wide and a ide connection is approx 5 inches long with about 4 inches long with over 100 pins and about 1/2 inches wide) i know that the opliplex 520 are nothing but sata so if it uses the same mobo as the 520 and you have ide then its imposible to install on your computer unless it either has a ide connection or you get a ide pci or pci-e controller card and install that onto the computer. but for the most part a ide connection needs a ide cable and a sata connection needs a sata cable.

Connecting new hard drive


If the old one is still conected you can connect it the same way if not here is how to::

Well firstly they are 2 types IDE (large connector) and SATA (small connector)

IDE

of an ide cable has 3 jacks 1 for the main board and 2 for IDE drives
2 drive must be set to master and the other to slave
Set the drives by using the jumper on the back the instructions are written on the drives
Connect the Ide Cable and then the power and turn you system on

IF ITS SATA
connect the sata cable to both hard drive and main board
connect the power cable and your done!!

NB:: sata ports are labeled SATA 1 SATA 2 etc

IDE are LABELED IDE 1 IDE 2

Ide is a large grey cable black connector SATA is usually orange or red and small
