Use a paper clip, straightened out. There is a small pin-head sized hole at the right side of the tray. Insert one end and push gently but firmly when you hit the end but its movable. That is the release/unlock lever. By pushing in it releases the lock such that the tray can be manually pulled out to remove the damaged disc. If its a broken CD/DVD if all pieces don't come out you may have to remove the cover. After check if the motor runs. If OK then try another DVD. If motor is unable to spin the disk, then the motor will have to be replaced.............................................sodeep

It is common problem with this DVD. It won't start, just perform endless SELF CHECK, and when trying to read the disc, power just drops down, and game starting over and over...
In my case, and i believe that is the same thing in all those Panasonics, problem was increased resistance of R 003, located around STRG 6353. Voltage developed at this resistor, serves as overload information for security purposes. i just added another 1.5 Ohm resistor in parallel with existing 0,47 Ohm (R003). After that, recorder works fine.

Wd3200h1u00 cant mount


If the hard drive cannot mount, there is not a valid volume on it. With the drive physically connected and powered, open Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility (or if the hard drive in question is supposed to be your OS volume, boot up to Disk 1 of the OS install set and open Disk Utility from the File or Apple menu (I don't recall which one at the moment). If the disk icon shows up in the list of available disks, click on it. Any volumes on the disk should appear. If not, the disk is unformatted or the volume information is corrupted. If the icon doesn't show up at all, the disk is either not properly connected and powered or is defective.

What if disk drive does not open during system says reboot and selesct proper booot device


Sounds like you may have a CD/DVD in the drive that is stuck and/or not inserted properly. There should be a small, pin-size opening on the front plate of the CD drive. Find a large paper clip, bend out one end of it then insert into the pin-hole. Push it until the drive pops open.

The external storage device has several major components:
* USB cable
* external power-supply
* disk-drive inside the enclosure
* USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.
Try a different USB cable.
Try a different USB port on your computer.
Try a USB port on a different computer.
Take a multi-meter, and measure the output voltage/amperage of the power-supply,
and compare with the specifications on the label of the power-supply.
Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and attach it as a "slave" drive in a desktop computer, to see if bypassing the USB-to-disk-drive adapter bypasses the problem.
Look at the label on the disk-drive, for manufacturer, product-number, serial-number, and manufacture date. Access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status" to see if the warranty still is valid. If so, the drive can be replaced, at minimal cost to you.
Buy a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.
Search online for a professional "data recovery service". For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

I have pluged in the usb plug and plug the maxtor to the electrical plug but nothimg happens. How do I get it going?


Take a multi-meter, and test the voltage and amperage outputs from the power-supply, to confirm that the readings match the specifications on the label on the power-supply.

If the power-readings are correct, then when you connect the power to the external enclosure, you should either hear the disk-drive start to spin, or feel the vibrations as the disk-drive spins.
If you don't, then the disk-drive inside the enclosure has "died".

If the device is still under warranty, MAXTOR will replace the disk-drive, for minimal costs to you.

If the warranty has ended, then open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, install it into the enclosure, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

The Coolmax adapter is an USB hard drive adapter that can connect various types hard drives to your computer. This is used for testing and and transferring data to and from hard drives connected to the computer via the computer's USB port.

This Coolmax USB hard disk adapter can connect a 2.5-, 3.5- and 5.25-inch IDE or SATA hard disk to a PC. The black adapter box connects the hard disk, while the secondary power plug/adapter powers the drive. In the case of smaller notebook or SATA disks, the power cable is plugged directly into the adapter (as opposed to straight into the IDE hard disk).
The red USB cable, meanwhile, can be used to power hard disks directly from the host PC's bus via another USB port.

Connect the hard drive to the adapter as detailed above, power up your computer and plug the Coolmax USB cable into the conputer's USB port. The computer will detect and see this as an external drive, most likely as a E drive (the next drive letter that is available). Click on this drive and open to open the folder/s where your data is stored then select the folder/s and/or data and copy them, then open the hard drive on the computer and paste the folder/s and/or files onto the new hard drive.
