Problems installing an IDE disk drive in a Bytecc ME-350V4

I just bought a Bytecc ME-350V4 HDD enclosure in an attempt to use use (and recover data from) an IDE disk drive. When I openned the box I discovered there were no instructions and no manual. When I removed two screws and openned the case I found a ribbon cable (the IDE data cable, I assume) and a 4 wire cable (which I believe is the IDE power supply cable). Both of these cables were sitting loose inside the case. SATA cables were connected to the circuit board, but I am not trying to use a SATA drive. I can not find any obvious location to attach the (assumed) IDE power supply cable and I am not certain which way the ribbon cable should be installed.

Sometimes the drives pull too much current to start. I understand that it worked in the other caes, but the electronics in this case may be pulling more.

Usually they come with a two-headed USB connector. Try putting the single end in the drive and use two USB ports on the other end. This doubles the current available to the drive.

Installing IDE drive in Bytecc ME-350V4 (no manual supplied)


It sounds from your description you change out some hardware and left the wire behind. IDE is consider to be old technology replaced by SATA. Unless it broken don't play with the wire, you could either leave the wire handing loose or just remove the ide ribbon wire, either way it won't hurt the computer.

You want to remove the hard disk from old computer, connect it to the enclosure, and connect it externally to the new computer, right?
Now you have a problem connecting hard disk to the enclosure.
Usually there are no SATA/IDE enclosures. They are either IDE or SATA.
If the data connector in the hard disk (HDD) is rectangular with around 40 pins inside, it is an IDE HDD. Else if it has L shaped horizontal connector, it is a SATA HDD.
I suggest you to take the hard disk to the store and ask for a matching enclosure. If you bought the wrong one, they might replace it with the correct one.
If you feel you want to do it yourself, let us know. However an IDE HDD cannot be connected to a SATA enclosure and vise versa.
I sincerely hope you will get to copy the required files to your new computer. However before copying, it is better to install a reliable virus guard.

How do i put my hard drive inside? me


Open the external case, by removing some screws, and sliding the cover away from the insides.
Connect your disk-drive to the "power" and "data" connections, and secure the disk-drive with the mounting screws. Close the case.

IDE hard drive in Bytecc ME-535U2 enclosure not recognized by OS

There is a couple of things that could be going on. The first thing to check is that the drive did not get bumped off its drive letter by another device. If that is the case you just the to assign it a new one. The link below will help you do this.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4183994-change_drive_letter_in_windows_xp

The other issue is the drive may have gotten disconnected improperly. I had the same problem with one of my drive on my XP system as well. It partly has something to do with the USB controller to my understanding. Alot of times if you plug it into another computer it will detect it and ask to run a scan to repair the drive. After this you should be able to access the drive on your XP system again. Note I have the best resolutes when I plugged the drive into my Vista system. So I would recommend trying to plug it into a Windows Vista or 7 computer to attempt the repair.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions.

How to use 2.5" SATA external hard drive


Hello

My apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem , but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly in future.

Please download Disc Digger HERE. This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.

Once you have connected the memory disk / hdd to the computer , run the program.

On the program , select the dig deep option for accidentally deleted files or dig deeper for a formatted drive. Then select the disk you want to do the recovery on and run the program.

The data will be displayed and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has not been used since the data was lost. Save the files to a location on the computer hard drive and not back to the disk it is recovering from as this will overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.

Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.

You will also only be able to recover certain file types using this method.

Feel free to ask if you need more assistance.

Kind Regards
Andrea
