Hard drive that is nolonger spinning
If the data is critical buy an identical model and swap electronics, that may work. The best would be to just replace it.

hi i bought a 500gb samsung harddrive thinking to install it into my dimension 5000 but i was missing a data cable. i went to dell to ask about where i could find one and they told me that my dimension 5000 wouldnt support a 500gb harddrive. the max apparently is 400gb... if you have managed to get it to work however. please report back.

Yes you can just take the hard drive out of the case, can use it with any other case, you can also just put it inside your computer and connect it to the sata cable :)
Heres a case you could use for your drive... Click Here

Ok. I have a WD 500 and I have ran into similar problems. First, shut your computer down. Unplug the hard drives USB cable and the power cable. Wait for about 2 minutes. Plug the USB cable into the computer, plug the power cord in...wait for 30-45 seconds and then start your computer. That hopefully should solve your issues.

My Iomega (33654) 500GB USB isn't working. When I turn it on the blue light comes on for a few seconds. I can hear / feel it working but then the light goes off (it is still whirring inside). The computer isn't recognising it. I think it's still under guarantee but I can't find the paperwork. Do you have any ideas?
