THERE PROBABLY JUST NOT CONNECTED, LOOK AT YOUR MOTHERBOARD MANUAL AND SEE WHERE THE USB-PINS ARE ON YOUR MOTHERBOARD FOR THE FRONT OUTPUTS...

How to remove front panel to repair the front usb ports on an Acer Aspire E380 -?


The front USB connectors are usually either molded into the front case or held in via a clip or screws. Unfortunately, when they go out due to the tab within the USB port breaking, they are not easily replaced as each manufacturer creates their own proprietary connector...not the USB part but the hardware to hold the USB in place. So you will find the hardest part of this project finding the right connector or "jerry-rigging" the new one to fit.

Another alternative is to remove everything from the old case...the mainboard, all the drives and whatever else can be moved, and put it into a new case. If your current power supply is good and of a standard size, etc...you can get a used case for around $10.00 and put all the other things from the old one in it. Fortunately, this series of Acer seems to be pretty much generic so everything should fit....just make sure the "new" case has good front USB ports.

My Free Agent Go shows up with a yellow exclamation point in "other devices" in device manager. It's not recognized anywhere else. I also notice that my computer says I have another hard drive...


> Seagate ST3200826AS

This is a Seagate 200GB SATA-interface disk-drive.
Open "My Computer", and point at the icon for 'C:' drive -- is it a 200GB disk-drive?

Double-click that "yellow exclamation" item. Click "install new driver" or "update driver".
If Windows asks permission to access the Internet to search for a new driver, allow it.

Note that the USB ports on some laptops are "weaker" (same voltage but lesser amperage) than USB ports on some desktops. So, your FreeAgent might not be getting enough power to function correctly. There exist 'Y' USB cables -- connect the 'Y' to 2 USB ports on your computer, to draw twice as much power.

My two front usb ports cant read usb hard drives


Some external USB drives require external power sources. Typically this is done either with an external power supply that connects to the drive or a second USB cable that connects to the drive and a second usb port on the pc. I have even seen one drive that comes with a Y cable. one end goes to the drive and the 2 usb plugs go to the pc.

GETTING INFO FROM OLD HARD DRIVR TO NE LAPTOP.


Hard Drive requires lots of power to load. If you have purchased only the IDE cable to connect it to USB port, USB port will be unable to initialize the Hard Drive.
To make it work,you require an external casing for IDE Hard Drives with external power support. Like this one --

If you already have this casing with external power support, please let me know.

Flashing led light on my hard drive


well the best thing i figured out to do was to purchase a new case. i think the case burned up. i pulled the hard drive out and hooked it up to another drive so to see if it would work. the drive works just fine in the other device, so i ordered another case.

PC won't recognize external usb HDD


You may not have installed the HDD correctly in the case... I had the same problem with my Thecus N1050 enclosure, the green power light on the enclosure would come on and the drive would spin up but my PC would not see the HDD!!??... I thought, becuase i could hear the drive spinning that i had it installed correctly but this wasn't the case, when i removed the enclosure again and FIRMLY pushed the HDD into the connector (all the way in) and connected it back up to my PC, it recognised it instantly. Hope this helps!
