Question about Coolmax CD-350-COMBO (CD350COMBO) Infrared Adapter

1 Answer

I bought an All-in-One Multifunctional Converter (Coolmax CD-350-combo) to transfer my data from my non-working laptop to my new laptop. The problem is that it doesn't fit into my hard drive. My old laptop is a Gateway 9500. Any suggestions?

    What "" doesn't fit into my hard drive ""?? you know that you have to take out the 'non-working laptop' harddrive to conected to the cd350 combo (externally) ?? possible take out the working h/d from its case (if you can't fit the connector wires to it) then do the transfer of information?

I have spent hours trying to figure out how this damn thing works since the instructions require the user to have way more computing skill than I. First, the thing comes apart, one part being the interface and additional power supply and the other being the power supply that may connect to the Coolmax or your HD power supply if not operational through the Coolmax. If your old HD is larger than 3.5", you may have to connect the power plug to the HD 4 pin power source. otherwise, connect old HD to the Coolmax CD 350 adapter and then connect the Support USB2.0 to a USB interface on your new computer. If your old HD is a 2.5 SATA , do not connect the red power plug to a USB2 interface on your new computer unless you are positive the old HD operates over 5V. Connecting the red USB power source to your new computers USB2 interface may cause the old HD to shoot sparks and smoke, and you will not need the device any more.

Cool max cd-350-combo does not reconize ide drives when connected to pc. System acknowledges that a mass storage device is present but does not show in my computer or disk management (so ya cannot change...


Don't know if you've solved this problem, but I was having the same issue using Windows 7, 64bit. It had been working but Explorer crashed & Explorer restarted, it recognized the device, but I couldn't access the files. I tried it on another laptop & it worked. So I left it plugged in & restarted the computer and that fixed the problem. If that doesn't work, you may have to uninstall the driver that windows automatically installed for it & then plug it back in & have windows reinstall the driver. Good luck.

Does anyone have the instructions for this as the web site is poping up will damage your computer


I would ignore the warning. I went to this web site. http://www.coolmax.com/ and my Web Of Trust gives it a questionable rating as there are not enough reviews to give it a good rating. I found nothing wrong with the web site. I suspect you may have spyware that has infected your computer. This is how they operate. They pop up scaring you and wanting you to click the scan or something else and when you do you have problems. Run all your security scans in Safe Mode and clean all the find.

I have a dead hard drive 2.5" SATA


If it is truly dead and you MUST have the information from it then the only real alternative is to send it to a data recovery expert. These services are NOT cheap
If it clicks or makes random noises clicks pings etc then it is most likely dead I am afraid.

Pen Drive 16GB not working on laptop but working on other PCs...


It sounds as though the problem is with your notebook, rather than the flash drive. Specifically, with the USB port you are plugging it into. If you have another USB on the notebook, try switching between the two, and see if it behaves any differently. Another thing that can cause a problem is if the USB port on your notebook is not USB 2.0. The older ports (as in, an older computer) didn't have nearly the transfer speeds of the newer standard.

Also, are you trying to run multiple USB devices on your notebook at once? That could cause problems as well.

I can not capture video to transfer to CD


Hi Crowey

Please check the driver of your camcorder if it is installed and
also try to check the kind of connection that you are using to connect the camcorder to your laptop.
