I'm trying to plug my sata hd into my esata DVR

Could I buy an usb to esata adapter, then an esata cable? That way I could plug my usb cable (that came with my hard drive),into the adapter and then the esata cable into the other end of the adapter, then plug the esata cable into the DVR??? I'm trying to connect my hard drive to my DVR to record movies to.

    I'm trying to use the sata external hd with my Directv dvr. I thought I could just use a cable that would plug into my sata hd and then into the esata port on the dvr. ?????

    This is for my Directv DVR. I'm trying to bypass the hard drive in my Directv DVR and record movies/shows to a larger external hard drive.

What you can do is go to a good computer hardware store like, new egg. or somewhere that sells core hardware for computers. you should be able to buy a PCI-E or a PCI ESata card so you can plug it in. hope this helps!

See if it's under warranty, the controller that runs it is bad, if not under warranty, buy a new one or buy a External HDD/SSD enclosure, they are cheep, just make sure it's for the size drive you have and same serial port, ( IDE,SATA 2, Sata 3 ) you can get them to plug into your PC as USB, EX Sata, Esata.

I have a WD Scorpio Black 500GB HDD in my RVS01 external HD carrier. When I plug the USB in my computer doesn't recognize it as a HDD. I have tried this on two different Comps both running Windows 7.


click start right click on computer select properties then on device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem

you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps

My computer malfunctioned and I took out the hard drive to try and retrieve my files using a USB cable. I am stuck


Your hard drive has no USB port, it has a (seral) SATA 3 GB/sec interface, currently and
by far the most popular used on laptops, and also desktop computers. The SATA (serial advanced technology interface) 3 GB/Sec is version 2.0 of the SATA standard.

So, you'll need another laptop or desktop with a spare SATA 2.0 port, or a spare SAS (Serial
Attached SCSI) port, since SATA drive may be attached to SAS backplanes, as well as SATA backplanes. For a laptop, you may need to use the eSATA connector/cable
(see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ESATA#eSATA for eSATA technical specs and a photo).

Got new dvr box (not HD connection). had to use inputs that xbox was connected to on tv for my dvr. how do I connect the xbox 360 now so that we can use it without switching out the connections?


There are a couple ways to do this. The cheaper way is to buy some RCA Y adapters. You'll need one for each input (3, probably). Plug the male end into your TV, then plug the (yellow, red or white) cable from the XBox and DVR into the other ends of the cable. The downside of this is that you'll need to turn off the box you're not using in order to see the screen OK.

The slightly more expensive way is to purchase a switch box from Best Buy or Radio Shack or any where on the internet. The switch box will work like the Y adapters, but you can have both boxes on. If these are the only two devices that you need to use, then you only need a 2 way switch. Buy the switch and three RCA cables. Plug the RCA cables into the back of the switch in the output holes, and plug the other end into the TV. Plug the DVR and XBox cables into the input sections of the switch. Then you press one button for DVR on the switch and the other button for the XBox.

I have windows server 2003 professional edition installated.Cannot access seagate external hadrdrive


If you were able to access it before and the drive powers up when you turn it on, the most likely cause is that the USB connector is broken. If your drive came with a Firewire adapter and you have a firewire connector for your computer. Then swap the usb with firewire interface and confirm that the drive is still working. If it works then the USB adapter is broken. The second alternative is to try the eSATA connector if you have an eSata interface on your computer get a cable and check that the drive works. Third way to check is to puchase an eSata adapter the allows you to plug the eSata to the usb port on the computer. Forth is to try and open the usb module and solder the usb connector back on. Fifth is to try tearing open the drive case (difficult but not impossible) and put the drive into a different case (purchase at Best Buy, Staples, online, etc)

1tb Drive flashes, but will not be recognized by computer. Tried on both XP and Vista machines. Not seen by either. Is there any way to remove drive and place inside Vista box?


yes if your system has supports sata drives.

just take out of the case and install in your system.

make sure you have a sata cable.

Have you tried esata there is a cable that plugs into the mother board and goes into a pci blank slot that gives you esata this is the easest way to go

Connecting a esata port to a sate external hard drive


I don't think there is a converter from USB to ESATA, but you could buy a new Hard Drive enclosure that has those options, but I am not sure if you are willing to take out the HD from the existing one.

WD 500gb external HD shuts down when plugged into USB port


Try a replacement USB cable first. If that does not fix the problem, then the USB to SATA adapter board is faulty, in that case you will need to take out the internal disk to replace the external enclosure.

If unit is under warranty see : WD Support > Warranty Services > End User > Warranty Policy.

Note any SATA external enclosure willl work wthe same with the internal WD HD.
