The computer has died so I woukd like to get the info off its hard drive HDD2159 external of its computer. I have the USB Cable to SATA but I don't know which pins to connect to make it a slave drive.
Connecting the drive to the USB of my new computer caurer the drive to start up and stop over and over every 5 sec. Any ideas ?
You cannot just connect the hard drive using a SATA to USB cable and connect it to the computer and expect to download data from this hard drive.
You need to connect the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter which is then connected to a computer's USB port?
Leave the hard drive set as the master drive.

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions, DE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs all electrical power and data to travel through every working device its and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure your ram and cmos battery are securely seated with no dust in sockets
hope this will help
