You should probably just get a new SATA drive, it's probably safer all around.

My Windows 7 cannot recognize my Sata/usb connector


USB hard drive is a portable external storage device that works just like a conventional hard drive. The device is simply plugged into a USB port on your computer as you would connect a flash drive. Unlike a flash drive, however, a USB hard drive can store a much larger amount of data. If your computer will not recognize your USB hard drive, you can try troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem.

Plug one end of the USB cable into the port on your hard drive and plug the other end into the USB port of your computer. Ensure that both ends of the cable are connected securely. Open "My Computer" (Windows XP) or "Computer" (Windows Vista/7). The USB device should be listed as "removable disk" once it is plugged into the computer. If it is not listed among the available drives on your computer, proceed to the next step. Ensure that the data cable is working properly. Try another USB cable if you have one available. Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer as they may interfere with the operating system detecting the external hard drive. Reboot the computer if the USB hard drive is still not recognized. Plug the USB cable into another USB port and check to see if the device is detected. If you are using a USB hub, remove the device and plug the external hard drive directly into a USB port. If the computer still fails to recognize the device, the external hard drive itself may be experiencing a hardware problem. Check the status of the hard drive in the "Device Manager" window. Under Windows XP, right click "My Computer" and select "Device Manager." For Windows Vista and Windows 7, click the "Windows" button in the lower left corner of the screen, then type "Computer Management" in the search bar and press "Enter." Select "Device Manager" in the "Computer Management" window. In the Device Manager window, click the "+" sign that appears beside "Disk Drives." If the external drive is not listed, click "Other Devices" in the Device Manager window and see if an "Unknown Device" appears. The external hard drive may have been detected but the device is not working properly. If it is still under warranty, take the device to the computer store where it was purchased to have it repaired or replaced. Hope this helps.

Won't power on


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be

faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems

computers need power and data travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


make sure ram modules and cmos batteries have dust free secure seatings and cmos battery has charge some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail


check all power and data leads make sure they have secure dust free connections

cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

hope this helps

Looking for a manual for a Chenbro 84H220910-074 drive cage. I bouoght 3, and there was no manual with any of them. Nothing on thier site, and no response from thier tech support.


this is from a newegg feedback. the manual is not on their site but according to this guy comments here it is to configure

Pros: It works.
Find documentation here:
http://usa.chenbro.com/corporatesite/service_download_result.php?type=pro&mk=50&sk=
There are extensive connections for fans, alarms and RAID cards (activity & error lights) . Configurable 'high temp' and fan alarms.

Cons: Documentation VERY hard to find.

For the drive trays, Blue power indicator, and green activity light are passed from back-plane to front of drive tray with 'light pipes'. The blue is too bright and bleeds into the green, making it difficult to see the activity lights.

Also, both power connectors need juice or the alarm on the tray goes off. Since I am not using redundant power supplies, I eventually used a 'Y' chord to apply power to both inputs. Not a big deal, just took a while to figure out why the alarm wouldn't ******* (this before I found the documentation mentioned above).

Other Thoughts: The cooling fan is LOUD. I'll look for a more quiet one in the future.

Re: lg tower xp install


Hi,
FDD Floppy-Disk Drive.
It would be advisable to go to the motherboard Manufacturers site. And download the setup or user manual for this Board.
The White or black plastic jumper blocks i,ve refered to, are on the back of the Actual CD/DVD Rom Drive. Located at 1 end. this should be set to Master or Slave. diagram of settings usually printed on top of the drive. I dont know whether you have an IDE Drive ( 40-80 strand ) wire connecter.
Or sata drive connectors. 1 single red cable from motherboard to drive.
please bear in mind, this site is designated to solve technical solutions.
i,ll help all i can, but if your not technical minded, perhaps this is a job for someone more competant than yourself. no disrepect intended.

regards mike @ compurepair.
