front wires are usually for power, hdd led. power button and reset
button and sometimes extra usb ports and audio ports. All motherboards
have a small section that has 8 to 10 grouped pins protruding that you
can attach these wires to. The motherboard will diagrahm where the pins
hsould go. For example the light for the hard drive wires are probably
labeled "HDDLED" and there is two of them. One positive charge and and
ground. On the motherboard, in the grouped pins there is a small label
''___' '_____' HDDLED PWLED
look like this but in a different arrangement. What does this mean?
Connect HDDLED to the top two pins. Doesn't matter which way the
positive and ground go. And connect the power led PWLED to the bottom
pins. Follow this for all the other labels.
Hmmm.... mainly you have: -20 or 24-pins connector, that is unique and goes directly to motherboard (powers motherboard and its components) -4 or 8-pins connector that powers CPU -the rest would be connectors for ROM (CD/DVD/BlueRay) and HDD devices (there are: molex and sata power conectors)
Pin arrangment is Industry Standard Architecture.....
pwr led pwr sw N/C
X X X X O
X X X X O
hdd rst N/C
translated this is top row left to right ...... power led, power switch no connection
Bottom row is left to right........ hard drive, reset, no connection
Note: not all computer cases have a reset button, also the connectors for power led and hard drive produce a light, if the light does not show, power off the pc swithc the cable rooun 180deg on the connector pins and reconnect.
Actually the simpletech dosent need power adapters so u dont need to check for adapters and if you are connecting to usb2 port the power should be embaded so just connect the single usb cable not the both if using usb 1 then connect the both usb cable to usb port if u have already done this please try to change the usb cables wich is connecting the hdd and the pc something wrog in the cable for sure
And usually one of the NC pins is no pin as some USB cables have that
pin blanked out to ensure you connect them the right way. Note also
with USB you start with the VCC then you go straight to negative data,
then positive, then ground (again the - and + data bits, like the reset are in reverse of normal reading - the are right to left, not left to right!)
Finally if your not sure which cable is + and which is - the - ones are normally either black or white (most of them are white, except the speaker ones which are black - I presume that goes back to the colour scheme of red and black for positive and negative in audio equipment) and the + ones are normally some colour.
Most of the time if you get an event 51 error you will need to reinstall drivers associated with that device to fix it. I would delete the device from device manager, uninstall any software that you installed for it, then restart your computer and reinstall the software. I would do this for both the card and the drive. I would also run Windows update to see if it finds any other drivers that you do not have installed. If that does not work it is possible that the card and drive might not work properly together. The only other thing I can suggest trying is reinstalling windows
