Sabrent external floppy reader is asking me to format my floppy disk. how can a format it without deleting my files on floppy disk?


Your floppy disk drive may be defective. Also, Some floppy drives are manufactured differently. Your best bet is to find another floppy drive to read your floppy disk. You can try to take it to the nearest computer store and ask them to read it for you. If they can read it at the computer store? The Sabrent drive you received if bad. If they cannot read it the floppy is bad. If the floppy is bad you can try to download free data recovery software to attempt to recover your data, files etc. Good luck

I have a Sandisk Cruzer 8GB pendrive. I was copying files halfway until a message pops out telling me that my drive is not there. i ejected and reinserted the pendrive, but I couldn't delete any files...


Right click my computer and click on manage. In disk management try to reformat as another solution for your usb storage drive. Try another usb port on your computer as well when you reinsert it and restart the computer. Usually when a usb device turns off and doesn't show up like yours did the device could be faulty or the usb port you have it connected to or for laptops sometimes the usb ports turn off if only using battery instead of ac adapter. There are power save modes for usb ports so have to check that in device manager as well. Good luck!

Sabrent USB 2.0 5-Port PCI problem - ''Pri Master HDD Error''


If you already haven´t installed the driver, I would recommend downloading it from http://www.sabrent.com/drivers/UF6.zip and only then, after a successful install, connect the hardware.

Mass storage controller driver for gateway mx6421


A 'mass storage device' is any device on which files can be stored (HD, Memory card, thumb-drive etc.) so that controller is not for the USB ports as such, but may indeed be for a storage device that plugs into a USB port (card-reader, external HD). For a laptop, it may be for a built-in card-reader which is connected internally to the USB bus.

Go here and enter your laptop's serial number to be sure of getting the proper drivers specific to your machine, as you may be trying to use the wrong driver. Only by entering the serial number can you be sure of getting the correct files:

Sabrent 5in1 USB-DSC5 doesn't recognize 2.5" WD hard drive


I have had a different problem with this product. But, I have read many postings on its problems. It seems that for certain hard drives the jumper should be set for something other than 'master', either CS or no jumper at all. This seems to be true for only certain HD's.

Hope this helps.

Sabrent 5in1 USB-DSC5 USB2.0 to SATA & IDE cables HDD not in Windows Explorer


There shouldn't be any problem accessing FAT32 drives of that size.

Check your disk management (right-click "my computer", hit "manage" and then click on the "disk management")

It should tell you what kind of formatting the disk is, and what the drive-letter is.

If it shows as being FAT32, then you're fine. If it doesn't, the FAT has been corrupted and may require a disk rescue or some kind of disk fixing utility.

Assuming it shows the partition as healthy and FAT32, but it doesn't have a drive-letter, right-click on it and "change driveletter". Pick a letter and hit OK. It should now show up!

Sabrent external hard cannot save file on it


Make sure you have not protected the drive and that it is shared for use. Go to my computer, right click on the drive and select sharing .. make sure you have the drive shared and that it DOES NOT show it as READ ONLY in the check boxes at the bottom of the screen.

How to connect a IDE-to-USB cable to a 2.5 inch drive?


1) You will do no harm by reversing the connector, but the PC won't "see" the drive at that point (if your drive has an activity LED it will be permanently ON if the cable is reversed) 2) Most times the USB will have enough power to drive the HD all by itself, but if you are going through a hub that may not be the case. In that situation, plug the device directly into a USB port on the PC.
