Need manual for mad dog multimedia external wiring harnness


Unfortunately, Mad Dog Multimedia went out of business years ago, and no longer provide support services or documentation for any of their products.

Unless you can find another one of these external drive cases on a sale rack somewhere, or being sold used by an individual, your chances of finding the original manual are extremely slim.

My Mad Dog external hard drive does not show up as a drive. How do I get this to show so I can access my information.


Connect it to a different computer, to see if the device is working at all.

If not, and if the Mad Dog is still under warranty, then exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Otherwise, disassemble the casing, remove the disk-drive,
and connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the disk-drive is OK. This would imply that the USB-to-disk-drive interface inside the casing is the problem.

Model md-aen350com not found


Sometimes the drives pull too much current to start. I understand that it worked in the other caes, but the electronics in this case may be pulling more.

Usually they come with a two-headed USB connector. Try putting the single end in the drive and use two USB ports on the other end. This doubles the current available to the drive.

Hard drive from gateway solo pro 40 gig will it work in toshiba


I'm pretty sure it will. The only thing is that Gateways of that generationn used a custom connector which plugs onto the hard disks standard IDE / ATA connector.Just pull this extra connector off and you can use the disk in any machine.
Also ,Toshiba used similar adapters,so if Toshiba's using one on your model,then you'll need to palce the toshiba adapter onto the hard disk from your Gateway. You may also have to go into your BIOS ,and make sure the BIOS recognizes the disk if your BIOS isn't already set to "auto detect".

Mad Dog Hard Drive - Immediate Help


The grand majority of these external hard drives can't withstand being dropped from 3 inches, and some can't be dropped 1/2 inch. In other words, to retrieve your data, you will have to send it to a specialist, who will charge you between $300 to $1500 to get the data, with no guarantees. What a deal. I had a Fantom 120 gb, my dog knocked it over, and by by data. The fact that it is making noises means it has been knocked out of kilter. Try calling them with your warranty, but I bet it won't cover it. The whole industry is a big ripoff, as they do not warn you that you can lose everything at the drop of a hat (as it were). Only one company guarantees a drop of 7 feet that I know of. Better off to back up your data using an online secure system. Some cost only $4.95/month. Sorry.
