1 Answer

Hdd won't go into right size hdd enclosure case

I bought a i rocks ir-9200 hdd enclosure for my 2.5" hitachi hdd drive in my dead laptop. i have come to find that the connector on the hdd doesn't match up with the connector for the hdd enclosure. on the enclosure, the connector is a 44 pin female jack, but the connector on the hdd isn't even pins. its a male slot thingy, i dont know how to describe it. its two slots (male end), one longer than the other. is there some special hdd enclosure that i have to buy to make this work or am i just out of luck?

    Make sure to keep the original sheet metal "sleeve" screwed onto the hdd. The sleeve is part of the laptop, not part of the hdd. I discovered it when I I tried to install an hdd in an external enclosure which wouldn't fit it.

I've got a samsung m3 portable that has suddenly stopped being recognised


it is not uncommon for external hard drive enclosures to fail. If its not working on multiple computers, this is probably the case. try it in 1 more computer and if it still doesn't work, I would do the following:
1. Open the enclosure to expose the actual Hard Drive and obtain the model number and note the size. if its a laptop hdd, its 2.5". if its a full size hdd like in a desktop pc, its 3.5". the enclosure may be screwed together but likely snaps together.
2. Google the model # to determine the interface and speed (likely SATA 3.0gb/s but could be SATA 6.0gb/s
3. Go to Newegg.com or Amazon.com and buy a new external hard drive enclosure ($5-$35) with the same interface, speed, and size as your hdd (use the filters on the left to narrow your search)

4. Put your hdd in the new enclosure and check if its working.

My Toshiba 1Tb External Hard drive Light Isn't coming on!


It sounds like the usb port on the drive itself is shot. You can actually take apart the case and pull just the harddrive out and use a hotswap usb harddrive reader and get to your files again

The HDD is probably in working condition, however the enclosure may be damaged. You can remove the hdd inside the cavalry storage enclosure, and if you have a desktop install it in the desktop to get your data off of it. You may instead wish to purchase a new hdd enclosure which can be bought online from many websites such as http://ncix.com or newegg.com
