How can I install toshiba sata drivers when Win7 64 bit is installing?

Look in the bios setting and see if the 500g drive is listed under the advanced tab. Then make sure the 500g drive is first choice for looking for the boot disk. Have your os disk in then save and exit.

Broken usb

several things and solutions you can do.
if it's just an external hdd you can rip it to bits and take the drive out and use it as an internal drive, or take it to pieces and get an external hdd caddy for the size of the drive (3.5" or 2.5") they are cheap enough to buy.

I have an old Freecom external hard drive described as: mobile Drive 80 GB. The computer no longer can find the hard drive; however, the hard drive is spinning. Can you help.

If you checked with alternative cables, and on another computer, then your left with one option only. Removing the HDD from the casing.

If the HDD is still working but the case is not. You need to remove it from the case and connect it to a computer directly.

If once removed it is still not working you can try to put it in a sealed plastic bag and in a freezer for a day, the quickly try to connect it to a computer.
If it is still not working you only other solution is to send it to a specialized company that will open it and read the data directly from the plates. This is done in a sealed environment (think high tech dust free rooms with people coverd in white)
Thus it is expensive and usefull only id the data has a real value to you.

I have put a 500g hdd in my hpHP Dc7900 desk now it wont restart

for one you will need a (FUll VERSION) of windows and a licensed microsoft keyboard ( for the F-8 button) depending on your computer you'll need to get into setup to boot from the disc a fresh install of the OS is all you can do on a raw unformatted HDD you'll need to create a new partition , then after that place the new OS on that partition (note always) use the Quick NTFS and your set , if you
already have a separate C/: you can use it to format the second drive (also an HDD uses 2 cables 1 is the IDE or SATA and 2 is power

Freecom Classic 500GB External HDD Power Problemo

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Grab the solder gun and get started. No problem at all. Just replace the power button and your hard drive is perfect again. Only do this if you can have soldered anything previously. Try a matching button so that it may fix in the proper position.

Dont hesitate to comment if you have any other question.
Kindly rate me if i was helpful.
