Question about Computers & Internet

I have a Western Digital USB 2.0 Passport (160GB).  The board that contains the mini USB is damaged in that the USB receptacle is no good (came off the board).  This board simply snaps onto the HDD and I need a new one.

Since your planning to buy a new one I suggest you get a 1 tb regarding on the size of the disk and it's much more cheaper to get a bigger size. If your planning on still trying to use that old one. You can try contacting Western Digital then ask them if the product you got still has a warranty but based on the size of the disk you got there it may already be out of warranty.

Hi there. Here are some solutions you could try 1. Try connecting it with a different USB cable as the present one may be faulty. 2. If you can open the casing, do so to confirm if there is a loose connection. 3. You can try this great application tool from Seagate called Sea Tool. You will need to download and install on your computer. This tool examines you hard drive and lets you know if it is totally damaged. You can download it here. SEATOOL

Those little disks are susceptible to damage by minute pieces of dust; they are assembled in clean rooms. I advise against your plan. The electronics in the 500GB drive will be looking for a 500GB capacity.

The port of my Western Digital Passport damaged


You can open the case, and access the harddrive inside it. I found there are videos explaining the process on youtube. You can also find some info on Google. You'd then need either a USB SATA adapter, or a desktop computer with a SATA port that's not already occupied. Search for: western digital passport open case

WD Passport Essential 160gb with PowerBook G4


The problem is that your powerbook G4 does not provide enough power to your 160gb passport HD. This does not happens to the new Macs with intel inside.
There are several ways to fix it:
1) Go to West Digital Website and buy a "Power Buster Cable USB" (that connect your 2 USB ports to your passport HD in order to provide more power). I think that it costs 10$. This is the link: http://www.wdc.com/en/products/accessories.asp?ProdID=170
2) The other solution is easier. If you have an external USB hard drive with two USB ports, or a DVD/CD burner with two usb ports, you can pug your passport in one of the ports while the other HD or DVD/CD burner is connected to you PowerBook. You will be able to see and use your q60gb Passport HD.
