Hi Mil,

The connector on this drive is a firewire connector. They originated on Mac Computers, although some PC's have them they are not standard. You will either need to exchange this drive for a USB model or take your PC to your local shop and ask them to add a 1394 or forewire card to the computer in order to use the drive.

Also be sure to take the drive and cable with you as there are 2 standard sizes and you want to make sure the card they install is the right one, or has both.

Hope this helps FixYa,

What is power brick cord?

An AC adapter, sometimes called a power brick, is a little box that takes the Alternating Current (AC) line voltage from your house receptacle and converts it into a Direct Current (DC) voltage that is used by your electonic device (computer, hard drive, etc.). This power brick sometimes has a separate power cord that is removable from the brick. This cord usually connects to your house receptacle, and sometimes it is a standard cord with standard connectors on each end.

Do not know how to connect power supply

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. - rules

Unplug all electronic cords connected to the computer.

At no time during the installation should any cords be connected to the computer.

Remove the screws holding the computer cover case, and remove the cover case.

Locate the computer power supply box, which looks like a large box out of which a bundle of wires run and connects to the power cord jack on the outside of the computer case.

Unplug the power cables from the internal devices connected to it.

Be careful not to damage any of the sensitive control boards or devices inside the computer, and be certain to remember--write it down if you need to--what devices will need reconnecting to the new power supply when you finish the installation.

Unscrew the power supply from the inside of the computer case and remove it. Check the original power supply's red voltage switch for the correct setting.

It should read 120 or 240 if you live within the United States.

Confirm this setting as the correct voltage setting for your power outlets.

Make sure your new power supply gets set to the correct voltage setting before you install it.

If it cannot be set to the correct voltage, do not proceed with the installation or you may damage your computer.

Return the new power supply and buy one that is compatible with the voltage requirements.

Install the new power supply, reattach the screws that will hold it in the proper place inside the computer.

Reattach the power cables that come from the new power supply to the devices that were connected to the old power supply.

Make sure all of these connections are firmly in place before you turn the computer back on.

Reattach the computer power cables and all the cords connected to the computer during normal operation, but do not close the computer case yet.

Keep your hands clear of the inside of the computer case as you attach power cords and peripheral devices.

Turn the computer on and observe the performance of the computer without touching anything inside.

Do all the computer fans function normally?

Does the computer operate as well as or better than before?

If you feel that the computer behaves normally and you do not encounter any problems, turn the computer off, remove all the power cords and peripheral cables once more, and close the computer case.

Then reattach the power cords and peripheral cables and begin using the computer.

Check for errors if you encountered any problems starting the computer or if it would not start at all, unplug all the power cords and computer cables connected to the computer and look inside.

Make sure that you connected all the correct power cables inside the computer securely and did not miss any.

If you have confirmed this and the computer still doesn't start or operate normally, call your computer manufacturer or a professional computer repair shop for assistance completing the installation

Hello mirelycas Hi, check your power plug at the back of the drive and see if its loose, If you have done this, most likely you have a bad drive. Does the drive appear on the BIOS screen? Does the Drive appear on other computers? The common caused of undetected drives would be
  • bad logic board
  • improper bios setup, not enable
  • loose power cord
  • loose solder on the power cord
  • faulty data cable
  • Virus infection
Make sure that all above list are good, if not, you may need to replace the drive.

Disconnect the "data" and "power" cables from the back of the drive.
Remove the mounting-screws on both sides of the old drive.
Slide-out (to the front) the old drive.

Re-insert the screws. Don't overtighten!
Reconnect the "data" and "power" cords -- they are different, so only fit only where they should fit.

Need to order power cord for this product. Anyone have any info on this?

This is a Sata drive. Your power supply in your computer should have the proper connection, since it goes inside your computer.

Won't turn ON

This is an external burner right? They usually have a power supply and wall plug and don't power up from the USB. To make sure check the drive to see if there is a plug for a power cord on the enclosure back. My money is on that you will need to call some friends to help you move the desk.

Recent Dvd player was connected to computer. However computer does not recognise it

Do not edit the Registry - any mistake here will crash your computer and may require a reinstall of Windows and all other programs!

RIGHT Click My Computer - select Properties - select Device Manager - then RIGHT Click the DVD drive listing - select Update Driver (have your disk ready).

This should solve your problem.

Good luck.
