Hi,

No the drive is not customized at all. It is a standard SATA Data and Power connector. However, if it was already mounted in a laptop chances are the laptop manufacturer may have put an adapter on the connector end to allow for tight right angle insertion into the laptop chassis which isn't possible with the stock connectors without leaving the drive loose in it's slot.

If this is the case grabbing the connector and pulling straight away from the drive should pop it loose and reveal the stock SATA connectors under it.

If you're having troubles removing this peice, comment back with the make and model# of the laptop it came out of and I'll see if I can pull a diagram for you.

SOURCE: Samsung Pleomax SAM MD-205 driver?

It took me a lot of digging to try and find a driver download. You can try the UHD25-80GB driver (this is for Windows 98, but you can try to see if it fixes the problem): http://www.samsungpleomax.com/sup_03_01.asp?page=2&fcate=Driver+download&scate=Storage+Media&tcate=HDD&scateg=Storage%20Media&tcateg=HDD. Direct link to zip file: http://www.samsungpleomax.com/sup/cs/HDD-driver-2500-80GB%20DRIVER.zip

Also, specs indicate that you need USB 2.0 or 1.1. I had problems connecting via a 4-port hub (that was supposed to support USB 2.0) so ended up connecting directly via my computer USB ("Enhanced" = 2.0) slot, which seemed to work fine.

My acer chromebook AC710 SCREEN IS CRAZY CANT SEE ANYTHING BUT COLORS AN LINES WHAT TO DO?


The reason your monitor is in screensaver mode, (Read your other problem too), is there is no video signal coming to it.

No Signal

This is because the Netbook isn't sending one.

It isn't sending one because apparently you have graphics problems. Problems with graphics hardware.

So no, there is no Sync, or settings to change on the monitor.

(It is Not a video/graphics card. Your laptop uses Integrated Graphics. Intel HD 3000 Graphics )

However the point is moot now. Netbook is being sent in.

Point now is getting the info off the Harddrive, before some geek looses it.
(I'm a computer geek too, so that was no slam)

Remove the Harddrive. Then install it in an external enclosure.

You've seen an external enclosure, if you have seen an external harddrive.
You can buy just that 'outside case', too.

The external enclosure has a USB cable going to it.
The USB cable goes inside the enclosure, and connects to a small circuit board, with an interface on it.

The harddrive plugs into the interface.

The external enclosure comes apart VERY easily. Manufacturers make it easy to open the external enclosure, and install the Harddrive.

Usually a 2 piece case. One screw to open. Remove cover, plug Harddrive in, replace cover.
Plug USB cable into a USB port, on a working computer.

This is one example that will work with your Harddrive,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3195233&CatId=2783

[Harddrives are measured across their width.
A laptop harddrive is 2.5 inches across in Width. 2-1/2 inches.
A desktop harddrive is 3.5 inches across in Width.

Three technology styles of Harddrive, are presently being used;
1) IDE (PATA),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA

2) SATA,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

These two types of Harddrives use mechanical parts. For example a Spindle, Spindle Motor, and Platters,

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/hard-disk.htm

3) SSD,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSD

No mechanical parts. Just electronic components. (Solid State)

Your laptop uses a 2.5 SATA harddrive ]

Going on..................

I haven't had any direct dealings with this laptop. Or the Aspire V5-171 version.
I see no Service Manual listed.

Searching the internet for Harddrive replacement info though, I ran into that there is a large panel on the Bottom of the Netbook; which has a single Philips head screw in the middle.

Remove the screw, remove the large panel.
This is supposed to be in the User's Guide, but cannot seem to download it right now to see.

It will be in replace the Memory. Ram Memory.

The Harddrive should sit in a compartment area all it's own.
The Harddrive itself will be in a sheet metal Caddy. Harddrive Caddy.
Remove a screw, or screws; to remove Harddrive, and Harddrive Caddy.

Once screw/s are removed, L@@K at the Harddrive.
There should be a piece of 'silk strap', to pull on.

Keeping Harddrive flat, and down in Netbook, pull on the strap; and pull the Harddrive across towards the OUTSIDE of the Netbook.

You are unplugging it.

You DO NOT want to lift straight up on the strap, as you will bend contact pins.
Once the Harddrive is slid over, then lift at an angle; and remove.
Lift up on the Back of the Harddrive.
This is the opposite side of the one that plugs in.

Open the external enclosure case, slide the harddrive in; then close the external enclosure case. (Referring to Tigerdirect example. Other external enclosures will be different)

Plug the USB cable into any working computer's open USB port.
Look in My Computer/Computer. (WinXP/WinVista - Win 7)
The external harddrive will be shown.
DOUBLE-click on the drive letter it is next to.

Have problems with that post back in a Comment.

Your Netbook, is supposed to be just an ACER Aspire V5-171 series of Notebook PC; with a Chrome logo on it.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Most likely the hd is bad. If you want to know for sure purchase a usb enclosure, break open your drive case and put the hd in the enclosure. That will tell you if it's the hd or the circuitry of your case.

Lacie 250 gig HD will not show light on front when switched on, also no sound comes from it, it seems completly DEAD, this happened overnight, at end of night all was OK, in the morning it would not even...


the power regulator inside the external enclosure is probably dead the drive itself may still be intact,you can remove the dribe from the enclosure and run it as an internal drive if you have any free ports or you can buy a new enclosure for it and it should run fine.

My computer cant pick it up and it keeps ticking


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

The external storage device has several major components:

* USB cable

* external power-supply

* disk-drive inside the enclosure

* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

Try a different USB cable.
Try a different USB port on your computer.
Try a USB port on a different computer.

Take a multi-meter, and measure the output voltage/amperage of the power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the label of the power-supply.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and attach it as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing the USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.

Look at the label on the disk-drive, for manufacturer, product-number, serial-number, and manufacture date. Access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status" to see if the warranty still is valid. If so, the drive can be replaced, at minimal cost to you.

Buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

You need a 2.5" inch SATA to USB external harddrive enclosure.

since its a laptop hard drive you need a small case.
for example this one http://www.amazon.com/2-5-SATA-HDD-Enclosure-Black/dp/B0018TCB0O

Cant access files on my harddrive


Hello,

It sounds like either the enclosure or the drive inside has failed.

If the enclosure has failed and you don't have any crucial files on it that you don't already have elsewhere, contact Maxtor(Seagate) for a warranty replacement.

If the enclosure has failed and you DO have important files on it, try having your local PC shop move the hard drive into a new enclosure, if that works you're done, buy the new enclosure.

If the new enclosure fails, your drive is damaged and you will need a pro to help get back your files. If this is the case, reply back with you location(Country, State and City) and I will pass along recommendations for your neck of the woods.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris
