These kind of "docks" can be found on ebay for drive diagnostics or file transfers without opening your computer.

SOURCE: Installed a 250GB WD Scorpio and it shows as a 130GB drive

make sure the laptop will handle a drive bigger than 130 gig. if not make two partitions when you set it up, bios wont see it but usually windows will. also, sometimes ive found that if i delete the partition a few times it eventually reads right. dont know why but have done it that way several times. you can also download a diskmanager program from thier website which makes an overlay if your bios wont support a 250.

SOURCE: I got a HP DV6833us.

Note: If you cannot find drivers for your WD drive, it may be because most WD drives do not include drivers as they use a standard driver built into the OS. If the driver is built into the OS or is already installed and the OS continues to look for a driver, your drive has most likely failed or been damaged and needs to be replaced.

According to Western Digital: "Most current WD drives do not require additional drivers on the Windows or Mac OSX Operating System (OS) beyond the ones that are included with the OS."

In order to simplify the installation process WD elected to use the standard drivers that are built into common operating systems. While there are a few exceptions to this, in general, there are no drivers provided by WD for our drives. That's because the drivers a WD hard drive or SSD uses are part of your Operating System. As such, any trouble with these drivers should be handled by the regular line of support for your operating system - in most cases by contacting your system manufacturer, IT department, or the publisher of your OS.

Internal Hard Drives and SSD: All internal Hard Drives and SSDs use drivers that are built into the operating system. There are no drivers available for download because of this. If your internal drive is not recognized, it can be caused by one of the following problems:

  1. During an operating system installation, it may not see your drive at all or may request a driver. Under Windows you will need to press F6 in order to be prompted to enter a driver. Once you are prompted for a driver you will need to remove your Windows CD, and place a CD with the drivers for your SATA or EIDE controller card. These can be obtained from your System Manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba, Gateway, etc.) your motherboard manufacturer, SATA or EIDE card manufacturer (if it is connected to a PCI or PCIe slot). Western Digital cannot assist you in locating these drivers, as every controller card requires a different driver.
  2. Your driver may be corrupted. The symptoms of this problem can vary - if it is your boot disk, your operating system may fail to load. If it is a secondary drive it may request a driver. You will need to contact Microsoft or your System Manufacturer for assistance in resolving this issue.
  3. Your drive may be damaged or have failed. A good test for this is to try the drive in another system. If the issue continues to occur, then this is most likely the case.

Hard disk failure


Check if your hard drive is still in warranty period so you could ask for replacement from the manufacturer. Otherwise, simply buy a new hard drive and move all your data from the old one to the new drive.

SMART always predicts correct hard drive status and probably this time, you need to change it ASAP.

Hope it helps!!

You may need a "caddy" -- a metal shell that wraps around the disk-drive, in order to line-up its "data" and "power" connectors with the matching "sockets" inside the second drive-bay.

I am using SuperDuper to clone my 160GB MacBook Hard Drive to a 500GB Western Digital Scorpio Blue. My problem is that I cannot determine why neither the SuperDuper program nor the MacBook itself...


The Western Digital Scorpio Blue 500GB hard drive is formatted for PC, not Mac. The simplest way to get your MacBook to recognize this new drive--and therefore copy the files from your old drive--is to plug it in to a PC and format the drive. I was advised to format with FAT 16, as this would be recognized by my MacBook. Fortunately, the process was not that involved, since the Vista-driven PC found the drivers for the WD Scorpio Blue automatically. Once formatted, I safely removed the drive and plugged it into my MacBook via a USB port using a BYTECC Drive Mate. Magically, it now appeared on my MacBook Desktop and was recognized by the cloning software I was using, SuperDuper. Three hours later, the files on my old hard drive were successfully cloned onto the Scorpio Blue--except now I had an additional 364GB of storage space. Swapping out the old drive and replacing it with the new was not a big deal at all--just make sure you have the right screwdriver for the last task--a Torx #6. Mission accomplished.
