Question about Da-Lite Western Digital My Passport Essential Se Wdbacx7500Abk 750 G

Open Question

Wdbacx7500abk A friend gave me his back up drive to look at - it's no longer recognized by any computer. After a lot of squinting - I'm pretty sure the USB port on the hard drive has a few pins bent off. I decided this could be a no brainer and take the hard drive out of the case and then put it into another case/port, etc...not so much...the USB port is solder down to the hard drive logic board. I'm not that savvy at this kind of fix. I could swap hard drives, etc...but this is beyond me - anyone know of a converter kit or something??? Anything???

    Ok, apparently 15 of you have looked at this - with not so much as one suggestion - I'm just looking for directions on how to convert this drive back to SATA. It doesn't have any SATA ports on it but maybe it's a no brainer - and all I have to do is unscrew this and that and screw in something or another?

"the parameter is not correct" msg re WD My Book, unable to access


Try plugging it into a different computer to see what it does. Sometimes a computer's operating system will recognize an external drive differently if it has only a slight problem, whereas another computer's configuration may treat the problem differently. Some external hardrive software can get jumbled by the programs of a computer or sometimes even their own software programs can cause slight problems. It sounds like a software problem with bugs that can be ironed out. Also some computers will change the drive name to fit into the order of drives it recognizes. Good luck!

Hi!! I have a Compaq Presario that a friend gave me a while back that used to work and start up..but it doesn't now and I haven't been on it in months. It keeps saying that: Windows could not


The "Win32 config" system folder and the files within it are crucial to the Windows Operating System's stability. If any of these files become damaged or corrupted, you likely receive error messages. Fortunately, Microsoft puts the files to repair these problems on the installation CD that comes with your operating system. The original install disk offers a quick way to repair the system. Damaged files are replaced in only a few minutes.

Insert your Windows CD into the computer drive. Restart your computer. On startup, look for the message, "Press any key to boot from CD" and press "Enter" on your keyboard. You should see the blue "Welcome to Setup" screen. Click "Enter" on the "Welcome to Setup" screen. Read the "Microsoft Software License Terms," then press "F8." Use your arrow keys, go down and select the Windows installation you want to repair. Press "R" for "Repair." Windows will now start to restore the Win32 System to your computer.

My hitachi external hard drive can't be found by my laptop


Hi there,
Remove it and install it into another computer to see what'll happen.
If it shows up in 'my computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it,you can recover data on it with data recovery program to avoid losing them.
I have succeed with Tenorshare data recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash and 'not recognized' issue.You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm
After you recover your data,you can format it to check out whether it can be fixed.
If the hard drive can't be detected,you can try this way.Put it in a zip-lock bag and put it in the freezer overnight. Then while it's still cold plug it into the computer and you may be able to view it in 'my computer'. And run the recovery program to recover your data on it.
If it fails, you will have to go to a recovery office but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money and whether they can recover data is not guaranteed.
This article will help.

Dvd-rom sd-616E driver no longer recognized by


Reboot the computer and go into the BIOS, see if its recognized in there, if its not recognized then you'll need to turn the computer off and unseat and reseat the cable and the power connector to the dvd drive. Then turn on the computer again and go into the BIOS, if the dvd drive is still not recognzied then you'll need to replace the drive.

If the dvd drive is recognized in the BIOS and not in windows then you'll need to go into the system restore in windows and choose a date the last time the computer was working, it will restore your computer back to this date and reboot. At that point it should recognize your dvd drive. If it doesn't then your OS is corrupt and you'll need to wipe out the drive and restore your computer back to factory defaults.

Computer not reading the hard drives or cd rom drives


You first need to make sure that inside, the hard drives and cd roms' connectors are all firmly seated.

When you first turn on your PC, you can normally enter the BIOS mode, (before windows) by pressing the del key or f2 key. Once there you can make sure that the drives are being recognized. If they are, you would need to go to the boot section and enable hard drives and cdroms.

If they are not recognized,
Old IDE hard-drives (the ones with lots of pins on the back) (newer ones are called SATA and have plastic connectors) .. Old ide hard drives had a special jumper (little plastic rectangle on two pins) to indicate if it would run as a master or a slave drive. So your two drives should be connected accordingly.

If all the above sounds too complicated you would need to contact a friend savvy in the area.
