Question about Sabrent SBT-FWPH (SBTFWPH) Serial Adapter

1 Answer

Using sabrent 5-in-1

Bought a sabrent 5-in-1. Used the usb cable to plug into my laptop. The green light [ide/busy] is on and the red [usb] light is on. My Computer doesn't see the drive. When I plugged it in the first time, my computer found the new hardware and said it was ready to use.

Using Acer Aspire One, Win XP.

I have two drives to test. This is an old one from my old computer. The problem is my new drive [sata drive] from my new computer. I am trying the old one first because if it fails, it won't kill me.

You can check 'Drive Management' via right-clicking 'My Computer' and clicking 'Manage'.

If you can see the drive in 'Drive Management', try changing the drive letter. Sometimes, newly added external hard drives end up having the same drive letter as an existing drive. This will cause 'My Computer' to not recognize the drive. Changing the drive letter can help.

How do you install a sabrent vga converter?


TV-LCDHR does NOT require a computer. It only needs a working VGA monitor and a Cable TV service.

1. Connect your coaxial TV cable directly to the "Antenna" port on the back of TV-LCDHR. Plug in the power supply. You should now see a red light on TV-LCDHR.

2. Connect your VGA monitor to "VGA-Out" port on the back of TV-LCDHR.

3. Press the "Power" button on the remote to turn it on. The red light on TV-LCDHR should now turn green.

4. Turn on your VGA monitor.

5. Press "Menu" button on the remote. Go to "Search", select "Auto Scan", and choose "Normal Scan".

TV-LCDHR will now scan through all channel frequencies it may find on your Cable TV service. When it's done, use the remote to change channels and adjust volume.

Note: TV-LCDHR has a built-in mono speaker. For optimum sound quality, we recommend using a pair of amplified stereo speakers. Connect them to the "Audio-Out" port on the side of TV-LCDHR.

The Coolmax adapter is an USB hard drive adapter that can connect various types hard drives to your computer. This is used for testing and and transferring data to and from hard drives connected to the computer via the computer's USB port.

This Coolmax USB hard disk adapter can connect a 2.5-, 3.5- and 5.25-inch IDE or SATA hard disk to a PC. The black adapter box connects the hard disk, while the secondary power plug/adapter powers the drive. In the case of smaller notebook or SATA disks, the power cable is plugged directly into the adapter (as opposed to straight into the IDE hard disk).
The red USB cable, meanwhile, can be used to power hard disks directly from the host PC's bus via another USB port.

Connect the hard drive to the adapter as detailed above, power up your computer and plug the Coolmax USB cable into the conputer's USB port. The computer will detect and see this as an external drive, most likely as a E drive (the next drive letter that is available). Click on this drive and open to open the folder/s where your data is stored then select the folder/s and/or data and copy them, then open the hard drive on the computer and paste the folder/s and/or files onto the new hard drive.

Sabrent 5in1 USB-DSC5 doesn't recognize 2.5" WD hard drive


I have had a different problem with this product. But, I have read many postings on its problems. It seems that for certain hard drives the jumper should be set for something other than 'master', either CS or no jumper at all. This seems to be true for only certain HD's.

Hope this helps.

How to connect a IDE-to-USB cable to a 2.5 inch drive?


1) You will do no harm by reversing the connector, but the PC won't "see" the drive at that point (if your drive has an activity LED it will be permanently ON if the cable is reversed) 2) Most times the USB will have enough power to drive the HD all by itself, but if you are going through a hub that may not be the case. In that situation, plug the device directly into a USB port on the PC.
