Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
I have an old Comoaq Armada E500 notebook. I recently purchased a EIDE 80GB hard drive. I then purchased a USB to IDE/SATA converter. My computer only has one USB port which does not work, so I have a USB card adapter with two ports. All USB devices work with this item except this hard drive. The hard drive shows up in the device manager under disk drives as a USB device but with no space info attached to it and it shows up no where else on the computer. I have tried disk management but there is no pop up and it does not show up there only the CD drive and the main hard drive. I need this thing to work...I do not have enough space on this lap top to run the programs I need to use and I cant buy a new PC right now. This is supposed to be easy...HELP!!
My USB to IDE converter won't work when the drive is set to the factory default "Cable Select". Set the drive to "Master".
