If it has a CS jumper on the back - just use that - it stands for Cable Select - so, the machine tells the HD how to behave.

External hard drive not formatted


could be an issue with the enclosure. try to check if the driver for the connector of the enclosure devices is loaded/listed without any error in the device manager. you may need to check on the manufacturer of the enclosure for the driver. else, you may need to get another enclosure compatible with your operating system to allow the device to be detected so you can mount and format the drive.

Seagate external hard disk is not getting detected in windows 7 previously it was detecting. i tried to change usb cable, tried on different system but nothing worked. i want to take backup of data also....


This is my suggestion for you to possibly recover the back up file in your external hard disk.

Remove the enclosure cover of the external hard disk. Detach the hard disk from the ide connection.
Change the jumper setting of the hard disk to slave. See the sticker in the hard disk to see how to set up the jumper to slave. Connect the hard disk to the ide cable inside your pc. If your computer is equipped with sata cable, just find some ide cable and connect it the the ide slot in your motherboard.

Restart your system and you will find your hard disk as drive (d:) in your system. If this was successful then problem can be cause by loose terminal solder in the usb/ide connector of the enclosure, or possible voltage drop of the power supply of the enclosure. USB driver issue or problem with the usb slot in your computer can also cause this issue.

How can I set either of two drives to master/slave in bios


> set in BIOS.

It is impossible to change any BIOS-settings to assign "master" or "slave".

Instead, if you have _internal_ disk-drives, there are a grid of gold-coloured pins on the disk-drive,
between the "data" and the "power" connectors, and three jumper-positions,
namely MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).

If you have an _external_ storage device, then if you open-up the enclosure, and look at the jumper-settings on the disk-drive, it always will be set to "master", because there will always just exactly _one_ disk-drive inside the closure.

Hard Drive not mounting


Check the jumper on each hard-drive.

My guess is that the WD drive has the jumper in the "correct" position, for mounting inside an external case, while the other drives have their jumper set to an "incorrect" position.

Set the jumper to MA(ster), not to SL(ave), nor to C(able)S(elect).

500 GB Fantom Drive not recognized on either of my Macs. Tried Firewire and usb; blinking light turns to steady red.Worked fine for about 2-3 years.


The symptoms don't look too good. Looks like the host controller is querying the hard disk (blink) and not liking the answer - or lack thereof (red).

It looks like the internal disk is defective. Sometimes the disk can be (possibly partially) recovered by disassembling the enclosure and mounting it in another enclosure or directly inside a compatible desktop PC.

Enclosure does not read any hard drive.


The drive may need to be formatted. The manual that comes with the enclosure has instructions how to do this with a variety of OS's.

Maxtor III 600 gb will not mount


What Operating system are you using ?

I'll assume your using windows.

Try going to disk management
it may not have any partitions

you can get into the disk management by pressing start --> Control Panel ---> Administrative Tools --> Computer Management --> Disk Management.

Once your in Disk Management you should see the 600gb

After you find it right click and either format / import foreign disk

(This applies to internal hard drive only)
If Hard drive is not listed you may have to set jumpers correctly or check bios to make sure hard drive is detected

3.5" usb2.o hard drive enclosure


You do not need to install a driver for Windows XP and Vista, it is already built in. The CD may however contain optional software for initializing the hard drive the first time, and for making backups later.

Do you know if the hard disk is good? Does it spin up when you turn it on? You can hear and feel it spin up.

If this is not a SATA drive, make sure that the jumper is set correctly. Most enclosures require the drive to be jumpered for Master, sometimes for Single or CS. Check the top of the hard disk for a guide to how to set or remove the jumper.

You might try connecting it to different USB ports, some are faulty.

Try a different USB cable. Try a different computer. If those don't solve it, it a defective enclosure. I seem to have a handful of defective ones myself. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
