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!

Hi,

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.

Hi

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.

Welcome to Fixya

Try to plug it in to a different computer. If you are getting the same thing using a different computer then its gonna be the enclosure or the HD is having the problem. One way to check is to use an extra HD and put it inside the enclosure. If the enclosure was able to detect the new HD then its gonna be you HD that is having the problem. If enclosure still cant detect the HD then the problem is the enclosure.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Fixya!

The Bios doesn´t recognize my Fujitsu Hard Disk Driveon a Compaq Presario 700 Laptop. ¿What i can do?


You need to identify where the problem is.

The simplest method would be to get a 2.5" external IDE enclosure.

Remove the drive from the laptop and install it into the enclosure.

Connect the enclosure to another PC or laptop that has USB 2.0

If the other computers can read the drive and you can access the data on it then the problem is with the laptop and these type of repairs can be expensive.

If however the drive CANNOT be read on other machines then you need to replace it as it has failed. Trying to recover data from the drive may be difficult

SImple tech 250GB power problem


the interface has gone out, these portable drive are horrible i have 2 go bad withing months of each other.

theres not much you can do beside taking out the drive and buying another enclosure and putting it in the drive in that enclosure.

so replacing the enclosure is the only option, since the device is out of warranty. just pry open the enclosure and remove the HD, and then buy another enclosure, add the HD to it. the problem is solved.
