Not really sure about "flogs"? .... but I think you bought a SATA drive instead of an IDE drive?

Yes you can get adaptors ... here's one supplier if found through Google:

Kingwin ez-dock 2 dosen't support 3 tb hhd

I bought a dual drive SATA enclosure and found out after purchase that only 1 drive could be active at any one time. I had to manually switch dives on and off. The reason was that the enclosure did not have a SATA drive multiplexer in it and neither did my laptop's Esata connector. A similar issue with USB.

These are easy to use, just like a USB memory stick. No special requirements are needed.
If your hard drive is a SATA or IDE type you need to purchase an USB 2 hard drive adapter case that matches your hard drive.

Hard drive failure what will replace OEM hard drive

Ok i have looked up your laptop and it should have this
2522926R - 120-GB 5400-RPM SATA Hard Drive Assembly (CRU/EURP)
for a hard drive in it. If so you can replace it with just about any Sata hard drive but you are going to have to replace the operating system as well as hard dives are sold formated(blank)
hopefully you have a recoverry cd or can make one
Is the system dead or will it turn on?

There are 2 types of drives. SATA and IDE. Most likely you have purchased a SATA and your system is older with an IDE harddrive

I would suggest returning it to the store and getting an IDE drive. You may contact me any time and I can walk you thu have to resolve this issue.

Please keep me posted and updated on your issue. I am here for you and will see your issues out till resolved.

Disk read error-Verifying DMI Pool data... My

hello, Acer T180 comes with a SATA drive which are very reasonable priced these days. I think your system came with a 160GB hard drive (less than $50), you can probably get a 500GB for $50 bucks now.
here is a link to newegg for sata internal drive many of them free shiping for holiday season.

you may come across few terms like "bare drive", "OEM", then there are regular ones. "bare drive" doens't come with wires(sata data & power connector), same with OEM- no wires, keep in mind OEM is genrally for resellers but i don't think anyone cares (:-) ).. since you are replacing the drive you have you can get by with any or these types. bare drive & OEM tend to be bit cheaper in price.

hope this helps

good Luck
