Fujitsu Does Not Fit In Rockfish HD Enclosure

I'm trying to put my Gateway 2005 laptop HD (Fujitsu) into a Rockfish 2.5 inch enclosure, but it is a little too large and the pins/holes don't align. Any ideas? Is there another enclosure manufacturer I might try? Would a 3.5 inch size enclosure work?

Posted by Decoder1 on Feb 25, 2009 I also had a problem with XP not recognizing the hard drive. The USB Mass Storage Device was reporting a Code 10 (Device cannot start). Ryockey provided the solution in that the drive pins can be offset by one set when connected to the interface. Be careful to get the pins aligned correctly, it worked for me. I also have my drive jumper set for Master. Thanks Robert!

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.

If using in a external usb enclosure you dont need a driver (unless you are using windows 98), Xp and later will pick it up straightaway

Please can i ask that you leave feedback and vote if this has been useful

Using Western Digital Hard Drive as External Hard Drive Problems

OK! First of all try to disconnect all usb's from neighbouring usb ports as they might be using up too much current resulting in your HD not having enough power to be powered up properly! Also, try to use a different usb port.

If all these fail, please use a voltmeter (if any available...) to check if your devices actually function...

Hope this helps! If not, please report back!

Can't read HD-- I/O error

"Joecolvette" has probably got it right, I've seen this before. The HDD enclosure circuit board has a fault. Can be resolved by replacing the enclosure. Plenty on ebay, just ensure you buy one with the correct HDD interface (Sata or IDE).

Alternatively, if you have a tower with a spare port, you could take the HDD out of the caddy, install it in the tower as a "Slave" (check jumper settings) ensuring the system drive is set to "Master". Then you can check whether the HDD itself is at fault.

Jumper settings to connect to mac

If the hdd is a 3 1/2" version you need a power supply to run it. The usb will only power a mini SATA 2 1/2 or smaller as the 3 1/2 needs 12volt supply as well.

External hard drive enclosure help

Is it a small disk (about 3 inches wide) or is it a larger one (about 6 inches wide)? Problem is, XP don't have the drivers to "see" SATA (Serial ATA) laptop drives. Try upgrading to Service Pack 3 to see if it solves the problem.

(Don't forget to Rate me, after you fix the issue).
