    the tab broke right off ?

    The plastic frame in the sata port is missing. Therefore, connectors fall out and I can't read the data on the drive. I would like to find a temporary solution so I can quickly copy all of the data and then discard the faulty drive.

Interface seagate barracuda 7200.7 200GB drive sata to usb 2 forum


Hello. You are correct that there are no jumpers, however, when you connected the SATA cable to the Internal hard drive, did you notice there were two similar connectors. One was for the SATA the other, longer one is for the POWER for the drive. If your SATA to USB has both connectors make sure they are both installed properly. Be careful you don't break those little plastic tabs because they are not warrantied. If the drive does have power and spins up then it may not be initialized (formatted) and will need to be initialized using START, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management. or just click on start and type diskmgmt.msc in the RUN box.
Hope this helps..

I had four broken DVRs of same type, I want to use their HDD in raid strip in PC, but they are DVR HDDs (Seagate Pipeline HD.2, ST3250312CS) and they are not initiable in PC. Is there any way to use them? ...


The SATA RAID interface needs to be compatible with SATA revision V2.0. Check the drives with the Seagate diagnostic tool (download it from Seagate) for correct operation. This will also check / test the SATA interface. Connect the drives directly to a PC with SATA interface to do this. If proven OK then use the RAID board.

Possibly there's a way to downgrade to SATA-1 using a Seagate tool.

Trying to make my seagate barracuda 7200.9 slave


1) Open your computer case
2) On the back of the drive where the connectors are, you have jumpers. These small plastic tabs change the function of your hard drive. All hard drives have a special setup procedure. The information about jumper settings is on the top of the hard drive.
3) Remove plastic tabs and put them according to "Slave" instructions.
4) Connect drive to middle connector of the cord.
5) Connect power supply cord.
6) Secure the drive in place and close computer case.

Also make sure that the main drive is not set as slave.

How do you connect two hard drives to a computer?


1. For SATA, you just need a second SATA cable to plug it in and a power cable from the power supply.
2. For IDE, you will need a second IDE cable to plug the second hard drive, AND you will have to set both hard drives jumpers either to cable select or one Master and the other one Slave, based on which one you have the operating system.
