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

How to install amd 64 mother board cd


install the flat cables coming from the hard disk drive, optical units and floppy disk drive. If you didn't install these devices to the case yet now it is a good time to do so. The cable from the hard disk drive must be installed on the IDE1 (primary) port and the cable from the optical unit must be installed on the IDE2 (secondary) port. The floppy cable should be installed on the floppy port. To install the cable, just pay attention on the red wire, it should be installed facing the "pin 1" marking on the motherboard. This marking is usually a number "1" or "2" painted on one of the sides of the connector (the opposite side should be marked "40" or "39", or "33" or "34" in the case of the floppy port).

Figure 19: Cables from the hard disk drive, optical unit and floppy disk drive correctly installed.
The next step is connecting the power supply. The power supply has one 20-pin connector and your motherboard can have an extra 4-pin connector called ATX12V, which should also be installed (not all motherboards have this extra connector). You may need to lift the motherboard in a 45º angle with the table you are using to assemble your PC, since usually the wires from the power supply aren't long enough to reach the motherboard while it is on the table outside the case.

160gb - but ensure the bios is up to date and check the motherboard manual as that will or should explain about maximum capacity of hard drives but am sure it should be fine.

If it is not and does not detect all of it you can partition the partitions into smaller amounts ie 80 gb partitions each ?
