    I don't seem to be getting power to the box, at least it isn't recognized by hardware manager.



    One question on jumpers: what position should they be in on a Seagate Maxtor 10.



    Thanks, Gary

Please check if your jamper of the hardrive must be set to primary settings. Or possible your usb connector having lost contact problem.

Hope this will be helpful to you.

Seems most likely that the drive enclosure has failed, since swapping to a different HD made no difference. If so enclosure will have to be repaired, or replaced.

Computer recognises usb connection briefly and then drops it. computer never sees hard drive


This generally means you have a failed USB controller board or a failed drive inside the enclosure.

Try removing the hard drive from the shell and transferring it into a new external enclosure. If this works you're done, if not the fault is in the drive. I can offer you some advice on DIY methods or direct you to a professional lab near you if you provide your location.

Hope this helps FixYa,

HARD DRIVE ENCLOSURE RECOGNITION BY MY PC PROBLEM


Had the same problem today. I finally noticed that the pin bay on the enclosure was large enough to allow the pins to be offset by one pin set. The open pins were hidden by wires. Once I carefully aligned the pins, everything worked fine.

Nexxtech 3.5" Hard Drive Enclosure (NHDE35)


I'm not saying this will solve all problems, but it solved it for me. I am running Vista and got this to work following someone's instructions from another forum.

The slot in the enclosure that you plug the hard drive into has one set of holes fewer than the hard drive has pins. This means you can plug the hard drive in two ways "left" and "right" if you will. I had to plug my hard drive in so that the unused pins were farthest from the power cable that plugs into the hard drive.

Incidentally this made the screw holes line up better, too.

Try a different USB cable. Try a different computer. If those don't solve it, it a defective enclosure. I seem to have a handful of defective ones myself. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
