    I received the adapter from amazon and sadly it does not work. the drive is still invisible to the laptop so I guess it means a new drive which seems a wicked shame. I will look into getting it modified but that will proberly cost more than a new drive. Thanks for the advice and I know where to come in future. Edward

Usually this is a problem with the usb port not being able to supply enough power to the drive. Often, units like this will come with two usb plugs on one cable to increase the current supplied to the drive. If the drive has an input for external power (some do, some don't), then using external power would help.

Take your SmartDisk to any computer-store.

They can open the case, remove the disk-drive,
and mount the disk-drive in a new "empty" external casing,
with a new power-supply.
See: http://www.canadaram.com/3_5_sata_enclosures.htm
for a sample of various "empty" cases, for about $30.

USB DEVICE NOT RECOGNISED - MALFUNCTION


Problem may simply be with USB cable used. Try another cable, preferably a known good cable.
Problem may be with the socket on the device itself where the USB cable fits in. Try (with known good cable) on a flat surface with the both the device and the cable resting on the surface - i.e cable should not hang down and put weight on the socket.
Hope that fixes it.
Further advice. Even if problem seems fixed, immediately back up the drive if you can!

Missing dvd/cd rom drive letter hp win 7


First I would check the data cable is properly connecting the drive. If it is connected, make sure the power cable is also conencted to the drive. Then I would check the Device Manager on the computer to see if the driver is installed. It must be one of these three problems.

I am not getting power to the external hard drive. when i plug in the ac adapter, i get a flashing green light on the adapter but no power to the disk. could the ac adapter be bad?


It's probably _NOT_ the AC adapter, given that the lamp is "green".

Disassemble the casing, and temporarily connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if the disk itself is still functioning & its files can be read.

Trying to connect a lap top to the 450C designjet but don't have the proper connection to hook up


I believe this plotter has both the old centronics and a 25 pin serial connection. Your laptop MAY have a 7 pin serial connection which you can get a 7 pin to 25 pin serial cable. If your laptop does not have a serial port, you MIGHT find a USB to serial adapter cable.

Make sure you are not on Vista or Win 7 operating systems as they likely do NOT have compatible drivers for this plotter.
