Ethernet drive not spinning up.

When I installed it in a HD enclosure (USB), IE recognizes it, but says ''not formatted.'' Do I need a ethernet enclosure, if there is such a thing.

What OS are you using? If this is a Windows system (or non-Apple, at any rate), what does the BIOS say about the HD size?

Something has become corrupt. You might not make it out "alive".

Is this an inbuilt drive or an external drive? If you're using USB, it needs a USB connection. It shouldn't need drivers as the computer will automatically detect a hard drive.

Have you tried connecting to a completely different computer to see if that recognised it?

Hi there,

The could be only two reasons for that problem with enclosure or hd. You need first figure out which one is the problem.
Plug the HD directly to the computer and see if computer can recognize it. If computer can recognize HD and you can access it then the problem with enclosure and something got burned when power got back. If you the enclosure still under warranty try to get replacement of if you electronic tinker you might try to fix it. If computer not able to recongnize HD and you can't access it from WIN then HD got fried. I would not recommend to store any important data on HD there is always a chance it will fail at some point.

Cheers, DS

From a computer WITH Internet access, access the web-site for the manufacturer of the motherboard, and download the network device-drivers to a USB memory-stick. Move the memory-stick to your computer, and install the device-driver.

Seagate 120 gig HD in Dynex enclosure not recognized by XP system


Ok, you didn't say if the drive had data or not? Anyway, if it is a drive with no data etc, you will first need to Initialize, & Format the drive before use. Is there any way you can connect it up to an "Internal" or "External" SATA port, & "See" if the drive is recognized, then at least you know the drive is OK.. Also try another USB port if available. If you know it is OK, then go to device manager and Uninstall the entire USB layer, reboot, it will re-install the USB again, with default settings, it NOW may be "Seen".

In general, you need to install the correct drivers for the enclosure, not for the hard disk. Seeing as you have XP Pro, this is probably unnecessary though.

Also, 0.7A is 700 mA, and this exceeds the USB port maximum current which is 500 mA.

Most (not all!) laptop drives will run even if under a slight undercurrent, but this depends on USB port electronics and enclosure electronics.

Chances are that you won't be able to run the disk unless you plug it into an externally powered USB hub supplying at least 750 mA per port. The 100-500 mA supplied by your PC's USB port is enough to power the enclosure electronics and the host controller, but not enough to get the HD to spin properly. As a result, the HD can not be initialised and the enclosure will report an error.

Some hard disk enclosures come with a "USB Y Cable" or "double power cable" which joins two USB ports to get double the current, and can support HD up to 1.0A. If your enclosure comes with one of them, try that first.

Installed a 500G hard drive in the 3.5" enclosure. It doesn't recognize it as a hard drive. How do I fix?


Make sure that your HD was installed properly in enclosure. Remove the cable then atached again.

Can't install XP


It could be bad RAM, but it could also be drive error.

Try running chckdsk.exe

If the drive is ok, try copying the win xp cd to the HD and try to install from the HD

First, you need to copy your Windows XP Setup CD contents to your harddrive. I recommend saving the xp install files/folders to a separate partition than where you're going to install xp to (ie. have setup files at d:\winxp\ and then install xp to c:\ drive)

restart your computer with the win 98 boot disk
at the command prompt change to the drive with the xp files
ie. cd d:\winxp\i386\
type winnt to start installing
install as usual

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!
