Hi, Your query, "Where do I buy parts?" depends on your location. Pls try Google for an "IDE to USB Adapter or enclosure." Based on previous work on similar problems, it is very rare for the "bridge or internal cabling" to go bad. More often than not, it is the actual drive that is at fault. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

USB may be drawing too much power from USB port. Try and power the drive from an adapter cable to wall outlet or get a special double up USB cable to share the power from a second USB port

I have western digital external hdd usb 2.0 and i have opened it now i want to connect it as internal hdd, its a sata drive inside when i opened the cover


The specific connection depends on the form factor the hard drive mechanism and the computer in which you want to install it. If it's a 3.5" drive and you want to put it in a laptop, forget it; it won't fit in there.

If you want to put a 3.5" drive in a desktop system, you need a SATA drive power connector from the power supply, a SATA data cable, and a SATA port on the motherboard or an expansion card. (note that you will probably not be able to boot from this drive if it is connected through an expansion card unless your computer's BIOS supports booting from a PCI device). It's also highly desirable to have an empty drive bay in which to to mount the unit.

If the hard drive has a 2.5" form factor (2.5" wide), and it is to go into a laptop, you will need the 2.5" hard drive adapter for your particular laptop (many manufacturers have a special cable or adapter for hard drives, although they should all fit the SATA interface. However, if your laptop is an older model designed for PATA IDE drives, the STAT drive will not be compatible.

To put a 2.5" SATA drive in a desktop computer, you need an adapter kit. This includes a 2.5" - 3.5" drive mounting bracket adapter and a cable adapter connector for 3.5" drive connections as described in the second paragraph above. Many computer parts merchants carry these.

My computer refuses to recognize the external hard drive what do i do


Hello there,

What type of OS are you running ( Windows # )

What type of motherboard

Here is what i would do to start off with,


STEP ONE - Check all connections
  1. Unplug the USB data cable from the drive and the computer.
  2. Check the ends of the USB data cable to ensure that they are not damaged.
  3. Reconnect the USB data cable to the drive and the computer. Check the connections to ensure that they are secure.

    Note: If you have a Portable Hard Drive with a 2-line USB/power cable, connect both the data line and the supplemental power line (usually marked with a lightning bolt icon) to USB ports on the computer. If the status light on the drive glows steadily, the drive is receiving power. Go to step E.
  4. If you are connecting an Iomega Desktop Hard Drive, check the power supply connections to the drive and power outlet to ensure that they are secure.
  5. Restart the computer.
  6. Double click the Computer or My Computer to see if the Iomega Hard Drive is detected.

    If the Iomega Hard Drive is detected, you can now use the drive.

    If the Iomega Hard Drive is not detected, please try another USB cable and/or power supply (if available). If the Iomega Hard Drive is still not detected, continue with the next step.

if that doesn't work go to this helpful site and follow the Steps one by one to fix this problem

An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

Note that W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- you can buy a new W.D. device, through the W.D. web-site, at a significant discount.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

I am not getting power to the external hard drive. when i plug in the ac adapter, i get a flashing green light on the adapter but no power to the disk. could the ac adapter be bad?


It's probably _NOT_ the AC adapter, given that the lamp is "green".

Disassemble the casing, and temporarily connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if the disk itself is still functioning & its files can be read.

Hard drive is not powering up any longer


I think so, As far as i understand, your pc is not powering on unless you dont plug in you hard drive right?Check wether it is ATA, or Serial ATA (SATA)?
THE problem is circuit, and i think you hard drive is JUNK!
(ATA)..1- Take a gd look at the drive, where you plug in the power cable, and make sure the 4 tubes are far enought.
2- Replace the IDE cable.
(SATA).. 0- Replace the cable.


gd luck

Disk no longer powers up


You may have a faulty power adapter, you need to check if it has +12volts & +5volts with a multimeter. You might be able to borrow a power adapter to test the drive before you pull it apart.

To test the hard drive.
Remove the hard drive from the case and connect it directly to the IDE cable (or SATA cable) and the power connector inside your computer. Depending whether the drive is on a IDE cabe on its own, then the jumper can be set to either Master or Slave.
If the drive is on the same cable as your existing hard drive then the 320Gb drive should be jumpered as a slave drive.

When you boot up your computer check the BIOS to see if it detects the 320Gb drive, if OK then let it boot up into Windows.
If you then click on My Computer you should see your C: drive as well as your 320Gb drive (might be D: drive). You should be able to Explore/view the files on this drive, if so the drive is OK then the power adapter or the hard drive USB box is faulty.

Gets flashing light on start


danw, i'd like to ask more about this, since I seem to have something similar on my maxtor onetouch 3 - seems to have happened during a storm, so I think a power surge killed the power supply, and I don't think there was any actual disk/plate failure. 1. power on - the light just flickers for a while, then goes out. 2. the light on the power adapter is on, indicating that it works, but when I turn on the drive, the light on the adapter flickers, too. does this sound like the symptoms you were seeing? I don't want to take any chances with the amount of data I have on this 160GB drive... Thanks, Geoff
