Using Western Digital Hard Drive as External Hard Drive Problems


OK! First of all try to disconnect all usb's from neighbouring usb ports as they might be using up too much current resulting in your HD not having enough power to be powered up properly! Also, try to use a different usb port.

If all these fail, please use a voltmeter (if any available...) to check if your devices actually function...

Hope this helps! If not, please report back!

I got the new xbox 360 but I got the 4 gb and I'm out of memory where can I buy a hard drive and where do I plug it in?


You can get a hard drive for the new Xbox from most local superstores or video game stores, or order it online from here.

To put it in, you find the little hatch at the bottom vent of your Xbox, open it, and put the hard drive in the little port inside.

I have a Seagate 800GB extenal USB hard drive. The port on this hard drive, to which the USB data cable connects, is damaged. Are there any vendors who can repair this port? If not, are there any other...


You can purchase an "empty" disk-drive enclosure, and then "transplant" your current disk-drive into the new case. That should recover 100% of your data.

Take the old enclosure to the computer-store, so that they can sell you a "compatible" new enclosure.

Probably $20 to $40.

My USB port on the hard drive seems to have broken off inside. What can I do? There is another DC port next to it, is there any way of connecting the hard drive to my laptop via this?


Disassemble the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive.
Purchase a new "empty" enclosure, for about $30, and "transplant" your disk-drive into the new enclosure. All your files will be accessible.

Not recognizing the hard drive, originally my P/C said it was a cable problem. Where can I purchase new connections & ac adapter?


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Or, purchase a new "empty" external storage device (with AC adapter), and "transplant" your current disk-drive into this case.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

Note that W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- you can buy a new W.D. device, through the W.D. web-site, at a significant discount.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

How to install secind sata hard drive


It all depends on how many SATA ports are available on your motherboard.
Older motherboards (EIDE+SATA) usually only had one SATA port. In that case I'd advise purchasing an internal PCI SATA card (around US$ 30).
Modern motherboards (SATA + legacy EIDE) have two, four or even six SATA ports available, and you basically just have to screw the hard disk in an empty slot of the appropriate size (3.5"), and connect the cables. You may have to purchase both data and power SATA cables though. Then, format and install the drive (advice: use the one OS you use more often) from Control Panel > Administrative Tools > My Computer > Disk Management. And you're done.

I recently purchased an external hard drive, and how do connect it to my computer.


External Hard Drive is mostly of the USB interfacing type. If urs one is the same, then it is just as simple as plugging in a pen drive in the USB port. If it has external power supplies then u can easily figure out how to connect. There are two parts in the power supply (if external power supply cable is provided), 3-pin main power supply connector and other is the adapter which goes to the external hard drive.plug in the other end of the adapter into the hard drive (there is a hole in it). connect the main power cable to the adapter extension. now for the usb Hard Drive, connect the USB cable to the USB port of the computer. Switch on the power supply to the Hard drive and u r ready to use ur brand new External Hard Drive. If it is a Firewire interfacing one then u may need to open the CPU box, and then connect the firewire connector on to the motherboard firewire port. It is easy to identify, it is a red colored port/connector.

Export via USB to hard drive


The USB ports on this unit are non-functional unless you hack it. There are several methods of doing so, but the easiest is probably to purchase an upgrade kit from dvrupgrade.com. You can either purchase a replacement hard drive, or software to do it yourself.

After you do this, the USB ports can be used to connect a network device, and you can use different software programs to export and import programming. You will also have other features you normally wouldn't have on the stock unit. Good resources on this topic are tivocommunity.com and dealdatabase.com.
