Replaced hard drive, computer isn't completely loading


If you replaced with a brand new HD then there are no files for the computer to read and boot from. You really have two choices, contact the vendor of the computer and see if they will offer you a set of the original installation disks. If not, you will have to go buy a new "operating system" set of disks ex: Windows 8 disks. You will not have any of the information you stored before as it was all on your old hard drive. However, in rare cases, a pulled hard drive that was unable to boot can be READ as an external drive. You can buy an external case for it and plug it into an operating computer and perhaps retrieve your files. You will not be able to transfer any programs. Just files like photos word processing etc.

What is the connection plug from Fujitsu mht2080ah to computer?


You can install the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case.
Then you can connect it to the USB port on your computer. The computer will see this as an external storage device, then you can copy the files off this hard disk to your computer.
By inserting the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter you can deleted unwanted files off the hard drive and use it for backups and data transfer from one computer to another computer.

Disassemble the casing, and disconnect the USB-to-disk-drive adapter from the disk-drive.

Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some computer. If you are "lucky", the computer will detect the drive. If you are "unlucky", search online for "Data Recovery Service" -- these are high-cost services that can disasemble your disk-drive, repair it just long enough to copy your files onto another disk-drive (or DVD-writable media).

Try this:
First, open: Start > Control Panel > Performance Information and Tools

You should see on the left hand side the words "open disk cleanup"
Click on that and pick your C drive in the pop up box. It will automatically analyze your drive and another box will pop up. Make sure all boxes are checked and then delete all the files. These are all unnecessary files that clog up your hard drive space.

Next, do a Windows update (programs > Windows Update). Do all the updates and let it complete.

Next, unplug your external drives and restart computer. After everything restarts and is fully loaded, plug in your drive again.

If Windows tries to install a driver, allow it to do so.

Now see if everything works fine. Hopefully it will. If not, do a complete virus scan on computer with a good, updated virus scan program. You might have a virus. Do it on all the drives including the external drives.

You can also defrag your computer drives to reorganize the files and speed up your computer. Do this by going to: Programs > Control Panel
Performance Information and Tools > then click on Advanced Tools on the left side. This will bring another box up. You will see Open Disk Fragmenter. Now click Select Volumes and select all your Drives that you wish to defragment (I suggest all of them). Then click OK. And then click on Defragment Now. This might take several hours so be ready for it when you do it. Restart your computer afterwards.

Hope this helps.

I want to read the files of my old Hard drive?


ok you have a pc. now, plug the IDE connector to your old hard disk and plug the power connector also. Now, you have 2 hard disks. Your old hard disk must be plugged into the secondary IDE slot. Dont touch anything with your original hard disk. Just add your old hard disk to your PC through the secondary IDE slot and using IDE cable. When your Windows OS opens, you will see a new Hard Drive when you open My Computer. It could be Drive E, F or G

The Coolmax adapter is an USB hard drive adapter that can connect various types hard drives to your computer. This is used for testing and and transferring data to and from hard drives connected to the computer via the computer's USB port.

This Coolmax USB hard disk adapter can connect a 2.5-, 3.5- and 5.25-inch IDE or SATA hard disk to a PC. The black adapter box connects the hard disk, while the secondary power plug/adapter powers the drive. In the case of smaller notebook or SATA disks, the power cable is plugged directly into the adapter (as opposed to straight into the IDE hard disk).
The red USB cable, meanwhile, can be used to power hard disks directly from the host PC's bus via another USB port.

Connect the hard drive to the adapter as detailed above, power up your computer and plug the Coolmax USB cable into the conputer's USB port. The computer will detect and see this as an external drive, most likely as a E drive (the next drive letter that is available). Click on this drive and open to open the folder/s where your data is stored then select the folder/s and/or data and copy them, then open the hard drive on the computer and paste the folder/s and/or files onto the new hard drive.

I just bought a new computer and I need to transfer files


A SanDisk Cruzer Mini is a memory stick, like a modern floppy disk. Plug it into a USB port (a thin rectangular hole) - it may be at the back of your computer. Your computer should then recognise it and you can copy files onto it.

Move data from one computer to another with kingston 8gb data tra


When you plug in the Flash Drive to your old computer, it will show up in My Computer probably as Removable disk or "Kingston Data Travler". You want to open that link up and drag whatever files you need into that folder. After doing so you put the flash drive in your new computer and repeat the process except you drag the files out of the folder and onto your desktop or a folder of your liking.

Hard disk acess problem


Hi, What the message mean is that Windows can not read/understand the filing system (something like the Table of Contents in a book) and therefore do not which and where are your files in the 80Gb. A few things you can try: 1. Run Windows Scandisdk on the Hitachi 80Gb; 2. Run any third party disk check/utility such Norton Disk Doctor. Alternately, you can use a file recovery software (such as GetDataBack) to recover/copy all your important files from the 80Gb and transfer them to another mass storage device. Thereafter, you can re-partition and re-format the said Hitachi to start new/fresh/clean. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turnes up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Hi theres a couple of ways i can think of, 1st, buy a replacement board but needs to be the same model and just replace it. you might get a cheap one from ebay. 2nd, if you phone maxtor and tell them u have a faulty hard drive, with important files they ask you to send it to them and they give you a price to get the information off, i cant remember how much it was the last time but its possible. all the best, and gl retrieving the info..
