Question about Coolmax CD-350-COMBO (CD350COMBO) Infrared Adapter

1 Answer

Does the Coolmax-350-Combo work with Microsoft Vista? The box it came in says it is compatible with Vista, but the online guide doesn't. I am having problems with this product. I need to copy a hard drive from an old hard drive onto my new computer. I hooked everything up, turned it on, and downloaded the PC Clone EX Lite software. I am unable to click anything. All the options don't work, if that makes any sense. I tried to do a back up, but I am unable to click the buttons. I click them but they don't do anything. Does anyone have any ideas of what to do? This is really frustrating and I would love to be able to get it to work. Thanks.

My approach is to put the old hard drive into the spare slot of the new computer. There should be an IDE cable plug somewhere. Makes things easy. I also use Clonezilla to transfer data.

SOURCE: I bought an All-in-One Multifunctional

I have spent hours trying to figure out how this damn thing works since the instructions require the user to have way more computing skill than I. First, the thing comes apart, one part being the interface and additional power supply and the other being the power supply that may connect to the Coolmax or your HD power supply if not operational through the Coolmax. If your old HD is larger than 3.5", you may have to connect the power plug to the HD 4 pin power source. otherwise, connect old HD to the Coolmax CD 350 adapter and then connect the Support USB2.0 to a USB interface on your new computer. If your old HD is a 2.5 SATA , do not connect the red power plug to a USB2 interface on your new computer unless you are positive the old HD operates over 5V. Connecting the red USB power source to your new computers USB2 interface may cause the old HD to shoot sparks and smoke, and you will not need the device any more.

You might be able to get it to work by running the compatibility wizard. The Microsoft.com website explains how to run older programs in Vista in compatibility mode. Check out this link, for step by step, detailed instructions:

Don't know if you've solved this problem, but I was having the same issue using Windows 7, 64bit. It had been working but Explorer crashed & Explorer restarted, it recognized the device, but I couldn't access the files. I tried it on another laptop & it worked. So I left it plugged in & restarted the computer and that fixed the problem. If that doesn't work, you may have to uninstall the driver that windows automatically installed for it & then plug it back in & have windows reinstall the driver. Good luck.

Wont run on vista


You have to open your eyes and look carefully at our program box and make certain it was designed to be compatible with Vista, if it does not say Vista it will not work with it, in many instances. If you bought this for an older OS it just simply may not be compatible. Vista is a very finicky OS and Microsoft had in mind for people to HAVE to upgrade their software to remain compatible.....$$$$$

Does anyone have the instructions for this as the web site is poping up will damage your computer


I would ignore the warning. I went to this web site. http://www.coolmax.com/ and my Web Of Trust gives it a questionable rating as there are not enough reviews to give it a good rating. I found nothing wrong with the web site. I suspect you may have spyware that has infected your computer. This is how they operate. They pop up scaring you and wanting you to click the scan or something else and when you do you have problems. Run all your security scans in Safe Mode and clean all the find.

I have a dead hard drive 2.5" SATA


If it is truly dead and you MUST have the information from it then the only real alternative is to send it to a data recovery expert. These services are NOT cheap
If it clicks or makes random noises clicks pings etc then it is most likely dead I am afraid.

SP 350


The answer to your problem might lie with the OS you are using. For whatever reason, when Microsoft brought out Vista it broke a lot of old programs and devices that worked perfectly fine. Why backwards compatability is beyond Microsoft, I don't know, but its an unfortunate circumstance.
Here is a link to Olympus' website, and a direct link to the SP-350 download page -
http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/software_results.asp?id=1188&os=w
I'm not sure if the drivers on the page are for Vista, its very vague but this is the first place to start.
Good luck!
