    I have the 2.5" 120Gb HDD but it is not recognised in windows xp or on my macbook. The crappy little cd that came with the pack contains no drivers so here I am trying to find a driver for this piece of s#*t. This is the last time I ever buy something originating from the CSS Africa group

I have a problem with my external harddrive. when plugged in it takes too long too read and when I transfer files from or too the harddrive it takes up to one day. sometimes the files is not even as b


Are you plugging directly into the computer or using a USB Hub. Cheaper USB hubs have awful data throughput. I have one that I tried to plug a sd card reader into and it would take ten minutes for a 60 megabyte file. Connect directly to a port. Or download Samsung diagnostics and make sure that the drive is in proper working order. Verifying The Hard Disk Drive Is Working Normally

SONY VAIO PCV R53 39 DS WON'T BOOT UP


Pull the harddrive out, install in an economical external enclosure.
The external enclosure has a USB cable.

Plug the USB cable into any available USB port, on a working computer.

Go to My Computer, or Computer; and double-click on the drive letter, that corresponds with the external enclosure.

(Actually with the harddrive in that external enclosure, it is now an external harddrive)

http://esupport.sony.com/US/p/model-home.pl?mdl=PCVR539DS&LOC=3#/howtoTab

It's an IDE harddrive. Also known as a PATA harddrive.

A harddrive is measured across it's width.
2-1/2 inches across is a laptop harddrive.
3.5 inches across is a desktop harddrive. (3-1/2 inches)

So you need a 3.5 IDE (PATA) external enclosure.
One example,

My Lacie 500gb external hard disk has stopped working. it has a scratching like sound and no computer couldn't detect it. even it is not detected in device manager. when it is connected to computers it...


is the scratchy sound coming from inside your lacie or outside ??

it might be a power problem trying to connect to your lacie but unable to find the device or a dirty hard drive the reader arm skipping across the platters you could give your lacie a firm tap on the side to free up the reader arm

click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,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

I have plugged my lap top power into 'my book' and yes I have cooked a component on the PSB card, is the car repairable or can it be replaced?


It would be better to remove the harddrive inside the WD My Book, and install it into an economical external enclosure.
Suggest you forget trying to repair the interface circuit board inside.

If I am all wrong, and have misread your problem, please state in a Comment.

If I am correct so far, and if memory serves, the harddrive inside is a SATA model.
I don't know however if it is a laptop sized harddrive, or a desktop sized harddrive.

A laptop sized harddrive is 2-1/2 inches across in width. (2.5 inches)
A desktop harddrive is 3-1/2 inches across in width. (3.5 inches)

Once you open the case you will know.

By using an economical external enclosure you will have a external harddrive again.

This is one example of an economical 2.5 SATA external enclosure,

This is information that may help in opening the WD's case, and extracting the harddrive,

MAC can't read NTFS. Most items are made for PC, will this work with a MAC as stated on the box?
Most external drives are usually formatted just for MAC use.
PC's and MACs don't like playing together.

Transfer of old laptop's condent to external harddrive


Windows 98 don't have pre-installed drivers for mass storage, like external hdd, pen drive, flush memory etc.

So, you should install the driver for your external hdd then win 98 will recognize it. And you can use it. For you external drive driver you can surf your external manifacturer site.

If any problem Ask me.

Thanks
