Yes, no problems, if the USB hard drive draws too much power you will need to attach an external power supply, usually the small laptop 21/2" drivers don't need external power supplies.

Dell Latitude C510/c610 Can this notebook book from the USB Port? I want to install Fedora Linux on my newly repartitioned HD but I can't read the DVD (don't have DVD drive available).


When you want to boot to the USB hard drive just have the drive installed, reboot the system, select the appropriate function key to go to boot options (should tell you what to press in the beginning of boot up) and select USB hard disk.

An important thing to note: Most Linux distributions won't boot from a USB hard drive or thumb drive without a special program for unpacking it to the USB Hard disk. Check with the distribution website for special instructions.

Good Luck,

My d610 does not recognize my cd drive


Is the USB-compatible drive recognized when connected to some other computer? If OK, then the drive is OK.

Is _ANY_ USB device (memory-stick, camera, mouse, keyboard, printer) recognized when connected to any of the USB ports on your computer?
If not, then the USB device-drivers for Windows have not been loaded.

Drastic: backup all your data files, bookmarks, and music, to an external hard-drive, and reinstall Windows from the Dell-provided "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs.

What wireless card do I need for the C610, I assume it won't take an external adapter. Jim


The c610 I think has 1 or 2 PCMCIA Slots for a wirless card it also should have a USB port both these you can go wireless with.
Here is two link to wirless adapters that should work for your laptop.

Sounds like you need a new video card. Thank goodness you were able to retrieve your data. The new USB flashsticks are great for backups.
Good Luck

Dell Latitude C610 doesn't recognize hard drive


when you took out the old hard drive
there is a black hard drive connector
this would have holes to push on to the new hard drive
without this, it will not plug into the motherboard
be careful if one of the pins breaks the hard drive wont work

Disk read erro


The usb ports in the C series Latitudes don't have the power to support some of the newer external drives, so you may not be able to get rid of the error without going to an older external, or a newer laptop. I'm stuck with a new WD 250g external that my C series won't support. I figure I'll hang onto it, then breakdown and buy a new machine at the day after Thanksgiving day sale.
