No, the Y cable will not compromise the function of your master drive. As far as the fan goes, a 2nd hard drive is not going to increase the internal temperature at all; the fans that came with your system should be sufficient.

I want to replace my Hard disk but my memory RAM is only 512mb & cache memory is 1mb so can i replace my hard disk by 500gb hard disk?


You can upgrade your Hard disk to 500GB even if you have 51MB RAM and 1MB cache. They are independent.
One thing you should check is the Hard drive interface: SATA (more common) or PATA. Does your board support SATA or PATA?
Second is your power supply offers SATA power connector? If not you should get an adapter to power up your HDD.

My HDD Seagate Momentus 5400.6 500GB is not recognized by win7. I have connected it like a ex USD HDD, but there is no USB devices in Device manager. The hdd is clicking -1sec click, 0,5sec off. Thanks,...


Hi, it might be a file system error.
You could try removing the hdd from the usb enclosure and connect it directly to your pc via SATA.
(power off both of them before doing so)
If it really is the file system then scan disk should repair it automatically when turning on the pc.
Then if the pc recognizes it you can put it back in the usb enclosure.
Good luck!

I am having several sata hdd what i noticed is the third connector on the drive 1data 2 power and3?


most SATA hard drives have both the molex and SATA power connectors to work with every PSU (power supply unit). There's a good chance that your third connector is the Molex one, don't worry about it.

I have 3in1 USB 2.0 to IDE & SATA Cable but nothing to show me how to use this kit


SATA 3.5" 2.5" IDE 3 IN 1 TO USB 2.0 CABLE ADAPTOR KIT

1 external connection kit
1 internal connection kit

The internal connect kit consists of 1 red USB connector cable
and 1 internal white male molex connector to SATA female power connector
( 1 yellow wire , 2 black wires , 1 red wire )

the external connect kit
consists of a 3 pin power adaptor (with a tiny plug to save space) feeding a power supply which powers either IDE thru a Molex connector or SATA through a supplied adaptor. Supplied also are data connectors to link the IDE or SATA hard drive with a USB port. Use this adaptor set to retrieve data from a hard drive when it is not mounted in a computer.
