You need the driver for the device. If the HDD came with a disk you will need to install that beore hand. =) Hope this works.

Had the same problem and solved inserting and extracting the card a whole bunch of times and blowing hard inside the slot. You can also try using the rubber to clean the contacts of the SD. God luck.

USB external hard drive cases are supplied with SATA and power connectors attached to the circuit board in the case. If you canot connect it to the SATA hard drive then you may have the wrong drive case, your case may be a IDE or SCSI type.

How can I replace my 30GB ultra ATA EIDE HDD with


Purchase a solid state drive, 2.5" for laptops 3.5" for desktops (or use an adapter for notebook drives with a 2.5")

Connect your IDE cable (and power cable on desktops) to the drive, install Windows and you are done!

If you want to keep your existing data, get an external enclosure for the appropriate sized disk and use a program like Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image to clone the existing drive to the new one, then swap the two drives (SSD from enclosure to internal, other drive out to enclosure)

Comment if you need more information!

MK1637GSX from a laptop, trying to attach it to a desktop for data recovery. Wondering if its possible and if so, what parts I need to do so


Go to a computer retail store and ask for an IDE / SATA to USB adapter, make sure it has fittings on the end for both 2.5" and 3.5" EIDE drives. You plug either the ide end or the sata end to the adapter head and plug the usb cable into the host computer. The host then reads it as an external HDD

Simpletech 500 gig usb plug in hard drive


Is the drive running when connecto to power ans PC?
Try it on another PC.
Check the power supply if it is operated from an external power supply.
It it is self powered via the USB then this is a possible problem- the PC power supply cannot cope - Removing other USB devices may help here
