    It is an external HDD.

    This product is an empty case that you put an ordinary HDD into to make an external HDD. My computer wont recognise it and I thought the problem may be the jumper settings.

    You mention USB 2 in the title, is this an external drive?

No Jumper Settings are required for external drives, they are all setup as Slave by default, and if you try to open the case, to take the drive out and change the Jumper Settings, you will invalidate the warranty.

    Well, that's a whole different issue. The correct answer to "is this an external drive?" would be, "No, it's an internal hard drive that I am placing into an empty casing for external use."

My desktop computer is done and I need to get the information from the hard drive. It is a Samsung Spin point Sv0813h/TGM. I bought the IDE to USB kit. How do I make it all work?

It is really easy. If your using Windows 7, plug the IDE to USB connector to your Samsung Hard drive. Then using the provided USB cable, plug in the USB cable to the Hard drive. Then plug it into an available USB port on your other PC. Window will automatically install the needed drivers for you. Then navigate to Start/Computer/Local Disk E. Assuming there is no 2nd hard drive or partitions installed. And there will lye your Samsung Drive.

Installing external hard drive internally

i really doubt that you can use it as an internal drive..
i would guess that changing the battery source would be your best bet.. so try to send it for repairment..
the other thing that could have happened is that you lost your entire information from some sort of burnment... that also can happen on internal disk when a power failure comes..
so if you have really really important information and need to take it back, you could try changing the plates to another one of the same model and rescue the info from there..
and yes.. it is insane and extremely hard to do.. but there is a group of people on the internet that specialice on getting information from disk and stuff..... they once got some info from a disquette that got cutted with a pair of sisccors, what they did was put all the pieces of the disk back together with scotch tape and put everything back into another flopply disk case..and it worked... so my theory of changing the plates is quite posible, but somewhat unnesesary for the huge ammount of work...
