Question about Castlewood ORB Internal ORB Drive

1 Answer

Hi : Question about a castlewood external 2.2 gig drive

I've got two castlewood drives, one working fine and the other, inoperable.

I use the drive to back up data from my vs880 EX ( Roland's 8 track hard disk based recorders that were pre- CD burner models ).

Is there a place that repairs the castlewod drives ? I'd rather try to repair than toss it.

thanks ! Jon

Does it do anything? Beep, Flash, Click, Whirr? Might be Power, cable, connector, Drive control IC, Motor, disc, servodata

If I recall this was the Zip and Sygate Killer from back in the 90's

Why will my verbatim 250 gb external hard drive will not show up in the computor or on a media player connected the tv ?


Hard drive could have damaged file system which would require a repair. Hard drive may have failed. Just listen for a clicking sound. If you hear it, your drive is bad.

Cant find apacer external hard drive (ITB) on pc but hear the sound when I've just plugged it it


Does the light come on to show you have power at the hard drive? Are all plugs and sockets firmly in place? Have you tried inserting the USB plug into a different socket on the PC? Sometimes USB hubs can give similar problems so try connecting the hard drive directly directly into the computer motherboard and disconnect the hub if any.

Otherwise you could have a dud hard drive.

My phone doesnt detect its memory card but when i connect it to pc ,, my pc detects memory card but my mobile does not???? Phone: videocon V1422


The problem is, that you type of phone can only handle a maximum of 2 gigs.
When you connect it to your PC it detects it, because the PC uses them (phone and sd), like two separate drives, and that's because when there is SD -> Phone -> USB cable -> PC, the uses the as a simple "cable".
So unfortunately you will have to buy a 2 gigs SD.

I have sony micro vault 2 GB pen drive but win xp sp3. but i plug pen drive the message is flash ''usb Device not recognized'' so how can solve this problem. how can work my pendrive properly.


Goto my computer and right click, left click on properties and find device manager.
Scroll down until you find universal serial bus controllers click on the + sign, right click on 'Enhanced Host Controller', right click and choose update driver, use the internet option to download updated driver, this should hopefully resolve your USB problem.
If it does not update and the usb drivers and they seem fine, then the problem could be with the flash drive, try the drive in another computer to check that it is working.

My external drive is no longer consistently recognizing 8.6 gb 2048 byte sector disks. it works sometimes after inserting and ejecting the disks multiple times. when the green light stops blinking i know...


Make sure you are buying the discs labeled DL

The DL stands for dual layer.

If you do not buy the DL you can not have the 8.6 gig write space.

I usually just buy R- DL(not the R+) since R- works on all the PC drives and all the old mac drives.

It could be that the USB port on that computer is not delivering enough power.  Will your Drive accept external power?
