Neither would work you have to go and buy a specially adaped harddrive for the diffrent firmware. or you could spend a whole week downloading the programs so the harddrive will be compatable.

I have a Toshiba Desktop Ext Hard Drive PH3100U-1EXB ... i unplugged it from my desktop to plug into my laptop like i have done before but this time it wouldnt load so i tried to eject it but it wouldnt...


but does it still work on the desk top.
if yes, then you have lap top issues, ONLY.
easy ,huh?

try all lap top USB ports no ext. hubs allowed.
what is wrong in the LAP top OS, unstated)

are you using the correct external power adaptor for both Desk and lap top usage,
have you tried a diff. usb cable.
Laptops can not power the hdd via the USB at all, and in fact
should be avoided at all times. no matter.
the laptop can be infected.
the laptop might have USB issues, with drivers.
do a USB driver update. (no 0S stated)
does the HDD show up in Disk manager, as DISK2
can you set the drive letter?
can you set the volume label on this disk via DM?
if yes, you then can read and write the drive.
as stated on all pages for USB
disconnect all other USB devices, and now try this HDD.
do a full virus scan, and malware scan
do wInDoZ update.
I think i hit them all.

I've got an old dell laptop from which I want to accesss the photos and documents but the power won't stay on..the green power light stays on for only a few seconds then goes off! please help?


Get hold of a desktop computer that is working. Open the Hard Disk Drive cover of your laptop. Pull out the Hard disk. Get a cable (an example is Nexstar universal storage adapter) which can be used to connect your laptop Hard disk to the desktop via USB port. A desk top allows multiple drives. This way you can get the laptop HDD as a seperate drive in your My computer, (like you see a pendrive or a CD drive. You can try reading this drive and copy content to the desktop. Pretty easy to transfer data and a useful device to have. You can find this device at http://www.amazon.com/Vantec-NexStar-Universal-Storage-Adapter/dp/B002PXFZ3C

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

It means that your laptop is not configured to read your 3200. You must install a software driver in your
laptop to read your 3200 to make them compatible.

Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 200 GB... Problem


Its going to be a hardware thing. Is the drive connected to a UB2 port? The network itself has its own data transfer rate  ( ie. gigabit ) you need to make sure you cables are no longer than 6 ft, its plugged into a high speed port, and that all ports on the chain are of the same speed. If you have the option, go firewire for this. If that does not rectify it, check adminsitrator properties of the drive.
