Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive
Does the hard drive inside my Maxtor External Hard Drive look like a regular internal Hard Drive? I am getting a Code 10 error for my Maxtor External hard drive, and I have been reading that I can remove the hard drive from the casing and then install it internally in my computer. However, I am a little uncomfortable with opening up the back of my computer and installing this hard drive in it. However, I saw a product at Best Buy called the ThermalTake Dual Bay Docking Station for most Internal SATA hard drives, where you can add 2 SATA internal hard drives to your computer externally through a USB port. And, I wanted to know if I removed my hard drive from the Maxtor External hard drive casing, would I be able to plug the hard drive into the ThermalTake Dual Bay Docking Station for most SATA Internal Hard Drives to retrieve my information? Thank you.
Hi, Each driver got its own setting, saying that your hard drive on the inside of your computer is setup to be XYZ of your reading sequence of your system, when you take it out and replace it as you mentioned it may not work as it still reading the sequence but cannot access it.
Recommendations, if you need to save your data from the external then you back up all data on the one inside your computer, then you backup all data on the external drive, now remove all covers from the external driver and do same with the internal, remember and see where is the pins locations on the front and back. Move the pins exactly on the external one to be same as the one that was internally, after that the external disk took the place of the old internal and now acting as new one. The reasons for the pins movements is it allows the OS (operating System) to know the order of the disk if it is #1 or 2 or 3 etc. and each pin location is a number.
If you need more detailed information you can close this post and contact me using my same ID to hotmail and that is free of charge. The site does not allows lots of space to be used so we csan use IM, etc.
