Question about Thermaltake Silver River 3.5" Encl Silver IDE / EIDE, Serial ATA, USB 2.0, eSATA Internal Drive Case

1 Answer

Drive case flashes

Whenever I turn on my Silver River 3.5" Encl Silver IDE / EIDE, Serial ATA, USB 2.0, eSATA Internal Drive Case the light that shows the drive is working just flashes between the red idle light and the blue working light. During this time my harddrive does not do anything, and is in fact cold to the touch.

The first thing you need to do is figure out if it is the Hard Drive itself or the enclosure.
The best way to do that is remove it from the enclosure & test it either in a PC directly or in another enclosure. If it works, then you can test the enclosure by inserting another Hard Drive & testing it. This should tell you which component is bad.

How do i put my hard drive inside? me


Open the external case, by removing some screws, and sliding the cover away from the insides.
Connect your disk-drive to the "power" and "data" connections, and secure the disk-drive with the mounting screws. Close the case.

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.

When I go to my computer the external drive is not there. I put 1 TB drive in the masscool case.


Not enough info. Make sure you plug it into the SAME usb port it was in before, or you may have to format the drive to work in the computer. USB does not work the same way as the sata or IDE drives.
Hope that helps.

Do external HDDs with both eSATA and USB require both to power up?


No, one or the other.

I wondered too, when my new eSATA external disk did not work with my laptop.

If you have a faulty eSata connector into your laptop the eSata won't work at all, but you can probably still use the USB until you can get a better quality eSATA expresscard / PCI connector. I think the standards have changed and an older eSATA expresscard won't do the job with modern laptop and disk.
