Re: How does the disk load ?

There is a small black plastic piece that pops up under the bottom of the disk that locks it in place. At this time there is no replacement parts available. I have two that are broken the same way. It also usually crashes the heads.

How can Western Digital hard disk drives be recognized by third party USB external docking stations?

The format on a disk, will not be relevant of recognition via an USB connector. To connect a drive via USB, the computer must have the correct driver for the hardware you are connecting. Be sure you connect the HD coerce to the external harness and make sure it is supplied with the correct voltages.
When you connect a working system on the USB connector and the drive does not have a format, the computer will see that and ask you if it should format the drive.

How to read old quantum 100MB HDD

Does you motherboard have the old PATA connectors (white 4 pin molex power and 40/80 pin flat & wide data cables?
Being that old you may have to get the little jumper pins at the back to be set in the correct layout (probably slave).
You can also get external PATA cases or docking stations and set it up that way.

All you need to do to backup the files on your old hard drive is by using a Hard Drive Docking Station. you can take your hard drive to a local store and ask for a docking station that would fit on your hard drive, the docking station is like a device the you can connect to your computer using a USB cable.
Once you have it, your old hard drive will just function as an external storage device.

If you're lucky it only caused logical damage. If not you need a lab to recover the files.

With the drive plugged in, right click on "My Computer" or Computer and select Manage. Click continue or allow on any popups

when the MMC loads click on disk management on the left and wait for the drive info to load.

Reply back with each drives information and we'll help determine which solution will work for you.

Unplugged My Book USB port without ejecting 1st - all data lost!

I wish I had the words of comfort that you will need with this tale of woe I must tell you.

You see, its a matter of organization.

Though your data is SOMEWHERE on the disk, without proper ejection, the disk cannot find them as they had been assigned data space.

It is very much like the requirement that a computer be properly shut down or face similar problems with its internal disks becoming corrupted.

Your files were not actually cleared, they were corrupted, but perhaps the volume can be repaired.

Go into your applications folder, (as you should have done while installing the disk in the first place) and find a folder entitled "Utilities" and within that folder and icon entitled "Disk Utility" and click on it. and a dialogue window will open up showing all disks currently installed, including your external disk which you should select and you will notice tabs entitled "First Aid" "Erase" "RAID" and "Restore"

Follow the instructions found there and the very best of luck to you.
