Hooking up USB adaptor to internal hard drive on desktop

I'm trying to hook up a USB adaptor to an old (Compag series 5000) desktop to export the files on the hard drive to an external hard drive. Where do I plug in the USB adaptor inside the Compaq? I have the side panel off, but it all looks the same inside to me!

Clsoe the cover.
look outside of the box. look at the rear of the machine. there should be 2 USB slots. there is none in the front of the machine.
The USB driver may not be correct, since it is PIII machine. go to HP.com and download the USB driver for the machine.

Does not worknd50


Sometimes, I've gotten the drive to work after taking it out of the external case, and hooking it up to a computer as an internal drive. You can access the actual drive manufacturer's site for configuration info.

I have a presario 5000v and the power supply went out so I disconnect and removed the power supply and got another and I am having a hard time hooking the wiring back up I need help


What exactly are you having trouble with? I have a 5000 series Presario. Did you get an exact replacement power supply? Check the plugs to make sure.

There should be a mother board connector that will only go on one way (if yours is split, they will still only attach one way), the Molex and mini Molex are for the drives.

Post a comment if you still have trouble and I will pop my 5000 open and check for you.

I have a Plumax enclosure I am trying to use. When I hook up my WD800 ide drive nothing seems to work. The power comes on, and the HDrive spins but my vista 64 desktop does not recognize or show the drive...


Try hooking it up to a different USB port. Go to computer on the start menu and see if your computer sees it. Try restarting your computer with the hard drive already connected and turned on, the computer may recognize it then.

Install os,cd drive not working


You can hook two computers together using a crossover cable. They may have them at radio shack, if not you can find one on the web for cheap. Then you can put the install in one cd and have it install in the other computer.

LaCie Hard Drive, design by F.A. Porsche, USB 2.0 won't open


Solution is on http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic18654.html ...
- Start > Run > type ‘regedit’ (without the speachmarks) > Enter
- Single-click on ‘My Computer’ > File > Export > save it to the Desktop (Always best to have a backup!!)
- Go to the following:
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDeviceP olicies

*There seems to be some spaces here in 'StorageDevicePolicies' in the text above, there shouldn't be, OK*
- Double click on the string ‘WriteProtect’ and change the ‘Value Data’ box to ‘0’
- Then: File > Export > save somewhere useful as something like ‘StorageDevicePolicies001.reg’
- You also need to do this for the strings in any folders called ‘ControlSet***’ (* = any Digit, i.e. 001, 002) – for example: Everything is the same, just change ‘CurrentControlSet’ to ‘ControlSet***’

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.
