I have a Seagate 800GB extenal USB hard drive. The port on this hard drive, to which the USB data cable connects, is damaged. Are there any vendors who can repair this port? If not, are there any other...

You can purchase an "empty" disk-drive enclosure, and then "transplant" your current disk-drive into the new case. That should recover 100% of your data.

Take the old enclosure to the computer-store, so that they can sell you a "compatible" new enclosure.

Probably $20 to $40.

I am adding a seagate 320 g drive to my dell 4300 dimentions.. i have one ribbon.. with black(end socket) and grey(middle socket).. i have a maxtor already installed..the jumper was set to master on slave...

First of all make sure that your maxtor drive is jumpered for cable select and connected to black connector. Make sure Seagate drive is also configured for cable select and then connect to grey connector. If the Seagate drive is brand new you will need to initialise and partition the disk once recognised by Windows

Adding a 320g seagate drive to my dell pc

The ribbon-cable to the first hard-drive probably has one connector at each end, and one more connector in the "middle". Look very closely at both hard-drives. Between where the ribbon-cable connects and where the 4-wire power connects is a set of pins. Look for 'MA' or 'CS' or 'SL' annotations above/below each pair of pins. Remove the small jumper from each disk-drive, and put the jumper back into the 'CS' position on each drive. Make sure that the "first" hard-drive is *NOT* connected to the "middle" connector on the ribbon-cable -- connect it *ONLY* to the "end" connector. Restart your computer, and watch the first start-up screen -- it should report that *BOTH* disk-drives have been detected. When Windows starts, open "My Computer" -- both disk-drives should be listed.

Hard drive problem

It's possible that your computer's motherboard is "old", and it only supports a maximum of 32GB per disk-drive.

Buy a new 80GB or 160GB disk-drive, and copy all your files from the "old" disk to the "new" disk.

I wanted to know whether ASUS A7S266-VM/U2 will support seagate 7200.10

M/Boards support all makes of hard drive
Are you sure you connected it correctly
The wide ribbon cable that goes in the rear of hard drive should
1) Be connected to M/board in the No 1 connector with the stripe on cable to the No 1 pin
2) the stripe on cable should go next to the 4 pin power plug on hard drive
Also ensure your BIOS is set to Auto detect of driives

Hard disk not working

Hello Bshannon, An external hard disk is composed of several parts. 1 the actual hard disk drive (HDD) 2 the buffer and USB interface 3 the power circuitry that must provide a +5 and a +12 Volts tensions. If the hard disk powers on is spinning and the light are on we could exclude the 3th option. There is a problem with either 1st or the 2nd options. Most probably 2nd. It may happened due to a power spike that burned out a buffer memory. It happens pretty often with these hard disk's or at least I've seen it often. However there could be other reasons for this and some of them pretty simple. Maybe a faulty connection with the internal components, USB jacks (the one on the hardisk) is the main suspect. Yes they fail just like that, the removal or a simply faulty contact on even one of the USB's 4 signal pins will result in not having the device detected. In any case I would recomand to have it checked at a service center because these small hard-disk are sensible to electro-static discharges and power spikes and you may cause some of that to them when you try a DiY check-up. If it can be fixed it woun't be expensive, if it can't (burned out buffer memory) .. no one will be able to fix it. However they could extract the actual hdd part from it, you could use it with a laptop (they use the same type of hdd's) or sell it. If you need more directions or have any other questions please reply. Good luck.
