Question about HP Xb3000 Notebook Expansion Base And 400gb Kit 400 GB Hard Drive
My expansion base power is intermittent, once power is lost so is access to the optional internal hard drive and USB connections to the ports attached to the base except the RJ45 port (internet connection). I can remove the power connection from the back of the expansion base and connect direct it directly to the HP Pavilion dv9000 Notebook PC to continue PC charge put I still lose access to the base connections.
Broken/Damaged USB Cable Or Faulty Connecting Device.
Corrupt Driver Files, Not setup In Bios Correctly.

your laptop docking bay has quite a simple circuit, inside it is just connecting extenal base socket to connections to laptop.
All you have to do is rebuild connection using solderer and replacement cables.
Use a tester to find out what cable is not working. You put tester extremities on the two sides of the cable, if it returns infinite impadance, then contact is faulty, rebuild contact with a piece of wiring.

HP XB3000 Docking Station HDD Hard Drive Tray
I just received an XB3000 expansion base and I've found an opening for an expansion hard drive, but it needs a special tray. Ebay has a seller who is pricing them at $119. Less the drive itself. I payed a total of $36 for my docking station and I'm not sure what magic the extra drive would bring about. So if I find out that adding a hard drive inside my fancy docking station works magic I'll purchase the tray, but if it doesn't do anything special I'll skip the waste of money.
