How do I change the temperature on the Aegis Scientific 3-CR-12? There is a blue digital box on the top of the unit.

We are having the same problem and my understanding is, we can not adjust it. It needs to be set before it is delivered and once delivered can not be reset unless it is sent back. We have had a repairman come out to fix a loose wire on our new fridge and he tried to contact aegis customer support but was unable to reach a live person in that department. Still waiting ....

Reformat Apricorn ADT-3PL256-3000 Aegis Desktop 3TB

Actually, the drive is probably compatible with Windows XP under the proper conditions. First, you probably need to install software that either came with the drive or that can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website that allows Windows XP to see the full size of the drive or you need to get a 64-bit version of Windows XP (called Windows XP x64) to get around the limitation of a 32-bit operating system such as Windows XP Home and Windows XP Professional both are. Once you have taken care of this, you should be able to see the full size of that 3TB drive. Another option, of course, is to modernize and get a 64-bit copy of Windows 7 (whether Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate). I do not recommend Windows 8, however, as it has a number of compatibility issues with both older hardware and various programs, not to mention the fact that the interface is a real mess to try to use.

Also, be aware that a 3TB drive will not actually show up as 3TB to the computer. The reason being that hard drive manufacturers have taken to using base-10 numbers to size their drives rather than using base-2 numbers as has traditionally been done. Thus, a 3TB drive will have 3 trillion bytes of storage available but a 3TB drive actually formats to only 2.72TB according to the way the computer reads it because there are actually 1,099,511,627,776 bytes per terabyte rather than just 1,000,000,000,000.

Aegis padlock 3.0 blinking light from password wrong

This is why I never recommend using password protected file systems...if you forget the password you are screwed and almost no one can retrieve the password from you because even it's storage is encrypted. Sadly, I therefore must suggest that you just kiss the data on the drive "good-bye!"

I format my computer and lost the software that allow me to access the hard drive. I don't know where to download it and I need to acces the information ASAP

I have arranged for the software you require to be made available for download from this location-

Please note this download will only be available for 14 days starting from today.

The file is an ISO therefore in order to use it you will need to burn the software to a CD. If you do not have software already capable of doing this (nero etc) you can download a free application that will do this for you called image burn from here-

If you encounter any problems please reply to this post.

Second time this has happened, Apricorn ez bus dts power supply

You can use a universal Adapter.
All you need to do is to match the correct voltage and the correct Ampere.
Lets say for example the input of your adapter is : 100-240v, 50,60hz . and 0.5 A
the output is : 12vor 5v 2A
So check this that correspond to the one you already have.
But one thing :: don't use one that is of a higher voltage capacity.
It will burst out forever the disk........
If you need any further help please let me know.

Toshiba satellite a205-s5831 Received kernel data error. Hard drive has clicking noises. Programs ran slow. Chkdsk running now for over 15 hours and only on 11%..preplacing bad clusters.

When a harddrive starts clicking it's on it's way out.
Buy a new harddrive and at the same time get a USB to laptop harddrive adapter. You can reinstall XP with the recovery disks that came with your machine ans then slave your old drive to your laptop and recover your personal files.
If you really want to get technicalbuy an Apricorn housing:
And two new harddrives, fit one new harddrive to the Apricorn housing and try to install the EZgig cloning software to your dying Windows. You can clone your existing Windows install to the new harddrive in the Apricorn housing and then move that drive to your laptop, the second new harddrive can then be fitted to the Apricorn housing and used as an external harddrive.
EZgig comes with the Apricorn housing and you could even go so far as to create a clone of your Windows install to the new external harddrive. The Apricorn housings are excellent, they are small enough to carry in your laptop case and all they need for power is a USB port.
