Re: sleep i think

SOunds like a possible over heat inside the case or the power supply is not stable. Try running it with the case partially open and seeing if there is any variation on  the board.

I'm trying to install a Western Digital Serial ATA Hard Drive into the external hard drive enclosure. There are no instructions as to what cables need to be attached and to where

USB external hard drive cases are supplied with SATA and power connectors attached to the circuit board in the case. If you canot connect it to the SATA hard drive then you may have the wrong drive case, your case may be a IDE or SCSI type.

you probably clicked on a mkv file and I have done this also and them nothing works. Go to system settings and travel down below to factory reset and it will work until you get into a compression setting that isn't in the bata SW. Need new sw for this and should be soon. Hulu plus says so anyway.

First is the "Drive" formatted? It will not work, if it is a new drive, until it is formatted. And/Or "Initialized"? If it has data on it already then it may be faulty? the only way to check that is to try it on another machine... also are you 100% sure you have it connected right way around, I have made exactly that mistake, before, I learnt whats what. Also try another USB port, this sometimes works. Try the setup on another PC to check it is actually OK.

Sometimes the drives pull too much current to start. I understand that it worked in the other caes, but the electronics in this case may be pulling more.

Usually they come with a two-headed USB connector. Try putting the single end in the drive and use two USB ports on the other end. This doubles the current available to the drive.

Computer doesn't recognize hard drive

If your hard drive is not recognize by your computer try to enter cmos set-up and see if your HDD is detected and if it is detected by your pc then you probably have error in your MBR, try to format your hdd using fdisk. If this doesn't work you maybe have a faulty HDD, try to replace with a new one to try if your HDD is really the problem, also replace your data cable (IDE/SATA) maybe that the problem. good luck with this.

How do I Recover data from an old hard drive

This may sound silly, but does the external enclosure have power? You may have neglected to connect the required power adapter, or it may not be working properly. You might also have a problem with the enclosure's internal power or data cables. They are sometimes pretty flimsy, and sometimes they can go bad.

There's also the chance the drive itself is bad and isn't being detected as a result. Or the interface board in the external enclosure may have failed, and the drive is OK but the computer doesn't see it. If you are connecting to a desktop PC, you can try connecting the drive directly to the main board using an IDE cable and try accessing it that way. Just be sure to set the master/slave jumper accordingly if you do that.
