Question about Western Digital Computers & Internet
I recently harvest my Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVS Hard Drive my from my old Dell Inspiron 1525. I'm trying to save the photos and videos I have on it. I purchased an Hard Drive Enclosure to store it in and connect to my Gateway Laptop viva USB. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be working when I connect everything together. Current Computer: Gateway NV53L23u Windows 8.1 Hard Drive Hoping to Get to Work: Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD2500BEVS Hard Drive Enclosure: Vantec NexStar TX 2.5-Inch SATA to USB 2.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure I was able to assemble the hard drive into the enclosure with no problem. And when I connect it to my laptop, it powers up and I can hear it spin with no problems. No clicking or unusual shaking. However, it doesn't automatically connect and doesn't seem to have a listing in "My Computer". I've checked under the "Device Manager" under Disk Drive and it's not there either. There's no listing for it either under "Disk Management". I know my USB Ports work fine as my other flash drives work on both of them. Does anyone have any ideas what I can do now? Thanks.
OK! First of all try to disconnect all usb's from neighbouring usb ports as they might be using up too much current resulting in your HD not having enough power to be powered up properly! Also, try to use a different usb port.
If all these fail, please use a voltmeter (if any available...) to check if your devices actually function...
Hope this helps! If not, please report back!
