Hello, all. I just bought a 160Gb 2.5" SATA hard drive and an SATA to USB 2.0 enclosure to use as an external storage device for my Compaq Evo N610c. However, when I plug the enclosure into the USB port on the rear, the computer does not recognize the drive. The enclosure is powered up, and the hard drive is spinning, but there is no evidence of the drive in the Disk Manager or Device Manager. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

you can purchase a external usb hard drive enclosure for your hard drive either ide or sata. then take your hard drive out of your laptop and install it in the enclosure then plug in the usb cable from enclosure to any 2.0 usb port on a desktop or laptop and you will see a removable drive by your cdrom drive on the screen then you should be able to get your data
You must remove the hard drive and get an external enclosure for it. Best Buy or Microcenter will be able to help you with finding the correct enclosure (You will want a 2.5" enclosure in either IDE or SATA. The hard drive will have the type printed on it to help you decide).
This can then be plugged into your new computer to transfer data. Bugs won't be transferred, but viruses could be if they infected your personal documents, but your virus scanner should be able to catch that.
Hello, Yea, these particular models have known issue. Unfortunately it may be the main board which can be quite costly. You're probably better off replacing the entire laptop.. In my opinion the fastest and most cost active way to access the data on the hard drive is to purchase a usb adapter (external enclosure case) which allows you to connect the internal hard drive from the dv9000z to this usb adapter. It will take a little mechanical skills to remove hard drive from the dv9000z (just a few screws) and another computer/laptop (to connect the USB adapter). I do want to stress, if the data is IMPORTANT you may want to take it to a local computer shop to do the work. If you want to give a try, you will need to purchase an external enclosure case that supports 2.5" sata drives (laptop hard drive size). If you purchase it locally I am sure someone can help you. Just let them know what you need to accomplish.
I do hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck!!
WHAT TYPE OF HARD DRIVE DO YOU HAVE, IF YOU DO NOT KNOW, UNPLUG LABTOP REMOVE BATTARY, LOOK FOR THE DISC SHAPE ON A COVER 2-3 PHILLIPHS SCREWS REMOVE THE SCREWS, SCREW WILL STAY ACCACHED TO THE CLASTIC COVER, IF YOU STILL CANNOT SEE A NAME SHOULD BE A TAB OF SOME COLOR PULL JENTLY AND THE DRIVE WILL COME OUT THAN TURN OVER DRIVE AND YOU FIND NAMES NUMBERS AND LOTS OF GOOD INFORMATION FOR ME AND YOU TO KEEP RECORDS OF YOUR HARD DRIVE TYPE OF DRIVE DO YOU HAVE...

IT CAN BE HARD DRIVE, THE BOIS ON THE MOTHER BOARD, THE SOFTWARE PROGRAM THAT WROTE ALL THE INFORMATION TO HARD DRIVE.
Hard Drive requires lots of power to load. If you have purchased only the IDE cable to connect it to USB port, USB port will be unable to initialize the Hard Drive. To make it work,you require an external casing for IDE Hard Drives with external power support. Like this one -- http://shopping.rediff.com/shop/productdisplay.jsp?3.5Inch-USB-2.0-EXTERNAL-Casing-For-SATA-/-IDE-Hard-Drives&prrfnbr=10209520&source=browse&frompg=Hard%20Disk%20Drives
If you already have this casing with external power support, please let me know.
