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.
Hi, The drive you are connecting to this USB enclosure can be set up as an auto select, master, or slave drive by changing the jumpers. Suggest to check your USB enclosure manual to see what is required for this device as to the configuration of the drive jumpers. Regards, Rongg
