Question about Gateway (8003932) Docking Station for Solo 5300 / 9300

1 Answer

I have a WD1600B011 Ext HD. I am planning to use it to transfer data from an old ME system (the literature with the WD unit says that it is compatable with ME) to a new Vista OS computer. The lit. doesn't mention Vista as I bought the unit several years ago, so I'm wondering if I need to download a driver before I go to my sisters house to help her with the transfer. If so where can I get said driver? Tx in advance

Hfawley,

As long as you have a USB port on the ME PC, then it will not be a problem.

Hi. My computer says I ejected my WD My Passport external drive but it was not properly ejected. How can I fix this. I need all my thesis files but computer can read the external drive! Help please!


Try to test your WD Ext HDD to a different computer and check if you will get the same problem.

If the same problem persist try to use a different cable for your WD Ext HDD.

If still fails kindly ask the store where you bought the WD Ext HDD on how to retrieve your files and have WD EXT HDD replaced?

If your WD Ext HDD works to a different computer then update the BIOS and Chipset of the computer where your WD Ext HDD connected previously.

Hope this helps.

It make tic noise when the hard drive is running


This sound is the heads of the disk hitting. The drive should be backed up immediately to another.
You can put this drive into a drive enclosure to clone it to another.
This drive will stop working and there is no telling how soon that failure will occur.

WD Elements ext.HD not visible in My Computer


Hello Graham

Ok, have you tried changing the drive letter of all the drives in the device manager? This is sometimes the cause for the drive not showing in My computer.

Let me know if you have tried this already, if not, do this, it might just work. It is a 320GB drive.

Kind regards

WD 500 My Book Prem Ed will not power up


If it's less than a year old, call WD and get a replacement power brick and see if that works.

You could of course also buy a replacement and see if that works.

If the unit is not powering up, the HD inside is almost certainly good. Data recovery is trivial. All you have to do is open the case(hard part) and remove the hard drive. Find a desktop you can install it into and copy the data to a new external HD. If you don't have a a desktop available, you can buy a USB to SATA adapter with a power adapter for about $15-20 that will work well. If you're creative you could probably re-install one of these kits into the existing enclosure for a permanent fix.

Motherboard died on my Toshiba Satellite A105 S4334


That is a tricky one. Guessing that you already have the new laptop, there is a usb adaptor that accepts SATA, IDE 3.5" and IDE 2.5" drives. You plug your drive into this adaptor, and plug the usb into your new computer. Now you can access all of the files on the old hard drive.
