Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

My AOD150 still does not work with the 500Gb drive but works fine in the external USB case. The "Setup" Identifies the drive and says it is okay when it is installed but when I try to load an OS it says there is no drive. (Yes, the drive has been formatted.) Is there a hardware limit to the drive capacity that the AOD150 will Accept?

Is this an IDE or SATA drive. If it is a IDE be sure to correctly position the jumper setting on the front of the drive to either Master, slave or cable select. If master and slave dont fix the issue try Cable Select.

I recently purchased a new Cavalry external hard drive (500gb, CAUG25500), and had been using it on my Thinkpad laptop with XP. It was working fine, no problems. Before a trip I was going on, I wanted to...


1. This could be due to several things.
a. The power supply for the external drive is not working properly
b. A broken power supply connector.
c. The USB drive was disconnected improperly > that is not disconnected safely in Windows
d. The external drive controller in the USB case is defective. A new case is needed.

My iomega 500gb external hard drive has a broken.


My Iomega (33654) 500GB USB isn't working. When I turn it on the blue light comes on for a few seconds. I can hear / feel it working but then the light goes off (it is still whirring inside). The computer isn't recognising it. I think it's still under guarantee but I can't find the paperwork. Do you have any ideas?

Doesn't seem to be compatible with windows 7. used to work fine. do i just try to reformat it or do i need a new driver????


It could be that your partition on the drive became corrupted, in which case you can just reformat and it will be fine, or it could be the drive went bad, which does happen. Hard drives are like light bulbs, they go out after a few years. If the hard drive is bad you can actually open up the box and replace the drive with new one, or you can buy a new external setup.

I have my Simpletech 500gb drive pluged in but


Okay, so it should be picking up with that machine. First try re-seating all cables (power and USB both sides) and also try plugging it into a different USB port. Be patient and give it a few minutes to find it. Let me know whether or not that works.

Upgrading to a 500GB hard drive.


Hello gadgeteer109....The AOD150 comes with a 160gb sata drive, so this should be a plug n play upgrade. Make sure the new drive is a notebook drive and not a desktop. You will need to install the operating system on the new drive... If you want, you can clone the original drive to the new drive before you swap them. You can download free cloning/backup software..Acronis has a free trial offer thats easy to use.You.will also need a 2.5 SATA drive enclosure, to hold the new drive while you clone the internal one to it before transfer to your computer, (these are cheap) and guess what... you can slap your old drive in it and have even MORE external storage! What a deal huh? The only tool you will need is a small phillips screwdriver.
TIP:
If you want to give the lilttle acer some rocket fuel while you have it opened up...swap out the 1GB of RAM for 2GB... A stick of Crucial 2GB 667 Mhz #CT25664AC667 DDR2 200-Pin SODIMM...will be another great plug n play upgrade for less than 25 buxs.
Hope this answers your questions and will fixya up...please take a minute to rate my response.

Seagate 500 external hardrive


It could be that the PCB or the connection within the external casing has a problem.

Try disassembling it and putting the Hard Disk into another external case to see if the disk is okay, if it is then viola! you have your data back.
