No this will most likely not recognize the drive to it's fullest capability. It might not recognize it at all or be compatible with it.

No connection

remove the HDD out of the caddy and plug into the inside of your PC then right click my computer and go to manage, in the left hand pane click disk management, now in the middle pane should be all your disks check if the HDD you plugged in is being recognised.

now go to my computer and click on the new disk and check that everything Is their, if its not then the HDD is broke but if it is then the caddy is.

if you cant see the disk in my computer and you can in mange try reformatting, this may bring the drive back to life but you will loose your data

I just want to copy files back and forth as in a regular harddrive. The computer recognizes the device (devices and printers), but will not identify it when I select 'computer'

Even though the drive is recognized, it is probably not formatted, which means you can't store any files on it yet. You will have to format it before any data can be written to it.

1. Open Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management

2. In the LEFT PANE, find the "Storage" heading, then find "Disk Management" and click it. Windows will show you a graphical representation of all of the hard disks installed in your system. Find the new Hitachi drive in the UPPER-RIGHT PANEL, and RIGHT-CLICK it.

NOTE: BE SURE YOU CHOOSE THE CORRECT DRIVE IN THIS STEP! If you choose the MAIN drive, the one where Windows is installed, you could DESTROY THE DATA on it and render your system UNBOOTABLE. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!

3. When you RIGHT-CLICK on the NEW HITACHI HDD, you will see the "Format..." option. Click the "Format..." option and follow the prompts to format the new HDD.

4. When the FORMAT operation is finished, you will be able to use the new HDD to store files.

There are MANY tutorials available which explain this process; read the section titled "Formatting a Secondary Hard Drive" on the following page for more details:

Good luck; let us know how this turns out.

How do i download music to a 2GB Kingston Datatraveler

Such kind of flash disks or external pen drives, shown as a new disk when you attached it to computer.

Please plug-in your kingston to usb port of your computer.
Open an file explorer (or double click on to the "my computer" icon).

You can see the drives currently attached to your system. If there is a floppy drive it named with the letter A.

Your hard disk(s) identified by the letters starting with C and CD/DVD rom D.

Your kinkston also shown with the next letter just after the HDD and CD/DVD under normal conditions.

Please click onto the letter that identifies your kingston and see the content at the right pane.

You can then copy your music files and paste into the kingston .Like normal file operations.

I need the installation disc for Maxtor

There is no such thing as an installation disk for a HDD,, The onl installation disk is for your Mobo,, try to identify your mobo if it is a MSI or PCI and find the appropriate disk for it,,, any HDD will work on any mobo as long as you have an ins disk on your mobo,,,,
