Question about Western Digital Computers & Internet
Computer is dead. I would like to copy files on my Western Digital (WD400BB) 40GB hard drive using my Windows 7 laptop. What interface and power cables do I need? The hard drive has no jumpers attached, do I need to set a jumper for my laptop to recognize the hard drive?
Your best bet would be to goto ebay and buy a kit which turns your hardrive into an external drive ..... determine what kind of hard drive it is and buy a kit .... ide or sata etc either way you will need to buy the coverter

Hi, Below is an image of a Maxtor 3.5 HD settings as shown on the actual HD. If you are connecting 2 of them in a single IDE flat cable/strip, one must be master and the other must be slave. Jumper settings on the left is for master, the second is for slave. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
