Question about IBM ThinkPad R32 2658 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Western Digital Passport that works fine

I have a Western Digital Passport drive that works fine on my Thinkpad T60 and T61. It used to work on this R32. Now it sometimes recognizes 'something' on the usb port but says it's usb 2 and can operate at higher performance so upgrade or move to usb 2. But never recognizes drive. The R32 only has usb 1 ports. The WD drive should still work but .... Whassup with that?

Western Digital Passports work perfectly on USB ports 2.0 that supplies 5v of electricity with a max of 500mA. If your computer was manufactured more than 5 years ago, it may be using the USB 1.1 which is slower than the current.

I am planning to buy T60 thinkpad, CPU is 1.6 GHz, Cheaply available in the the market. Also I have the processor of a T61 thinkpad which is 2.4GHz. I can put the T61 processor into T60, do you have any...


I don't believe it will because the heat sink and CPU screws won't line up and the CPU is smaller but i'm not for sure.The board architecture is the same but the form factor i believe is different.I'm sorry but i can't say for sure and i don't want to lead you to a bad conclusion.

How do I brighten the monitor on my lenovo T61?


I believe the T61 is like my T60.
The "Home" and "End" keys will act to brighten or dim the screen when you hit them as you hold down the "Ctrl" key.

Try downloading the device driver from western digital site for your respective OS. And try formatting it with the western digital inbuilt software, which works great.

For Western Digital Passport make sure you use the prigina;l USB cable or a replacement. They are not all the same. WD uses a propriatary cable with an extra power line I believe.
