Question about NexxTech Portable Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Kit Hard Drive
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?

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
