If this is the only hard drive in the machine load the disk while you are loading up the machine. You may have to change your boot order in the BIOS to having cdrom be the first boor device. To get into the BIOS you usually press either f2 or delete while the computer is starting. This should load it's drivers and then you can insert a windows or other operating system disk to install that. If you would like you can also install windows and then press f2 when it asks if you would like to install third party drivers.

If you are installing this drive as a second drive go to control panel and then add hardware. Make sure the disk is in the drive and then let the add hardware applet search for the drive and install the drivers and you should be good to go.

Do I need a seperate dc supply for my Ultra traveldrive usb 2 Why won't it install on my lap top.


> do I need a separate power-supply?

It depends. If the disk-drive inside the enclosure is a 2.5-inch "laptop" disk-drive, then it will draw the necessary electrical power through the USB cable. However, if the disk-drive is a 3.5-inch "desktop" disk-drive, it does require an external power supply.

Will it install on some other computer?

Trying to install as slave. check disc checks it then computer stops???


since you have been connecting another hard drive and plugging the leads in/out

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection

i would also suggest you buy another PSU power supply unit preferably a heavy duty one with plenty of wattage when you add more devices ram,hard drives,cd/dvd recorders it drains more power from the power supply unit placing more strain on your computers PSU

and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

Hi:
Hitachi hard drive are junk they are poorly made, but here is an option the could by a bigger hard drive and install it in the External case they are all the same, first take out the old HD from the case and take it with you to the store and purchse the same connection type wether its IDE or Sata and install it in the case, the cases are universal and all most all 5-1/4 inch HD will fit in the case is does not have to be A Hitachi Brand any brand will fit, I recommend a Seagate HD.

1tb Western Digital hard drive stopped working suddenly, no light


If the hard drive does not even turn on, then check its power supply. Maybe the power supply went bad; it should be a standard 12V 3.5A power supply.

Even if the power supply is working, chances are good that your data are still there, because the unit not turning on means that the internal enclosure, not the disk electronics, got messed up. It's unlikely that BOTH enclosure electronics AND disk electronics went south together, unless you got a lightning strike at short distance (less than 60 feet, say). You'll need to open the enclosure, extract the drive and connect it to another compatible enclosure (most USB/eSATA enclosures with the same EIDE or SATA connector as your WD will do) in order to override the fritzed enclosure electronics and connect directly to the hard disk. Once you do, your data will be there. If the disk crashed last time it turned on, maybe you'll need to run disk checker and expect to lose a file or two.

On the other hand, if the drive does turn on when powered, and the PC "just" doesn't see it, chances are proportionately bad for your data: you'll need to send the disk to a data recovery service, which can be quite costly.
