    What type of computer are you attaching it to?



    I had a similar problem sometime back with a 40GB Seagate 2.5" USB 2.0 Portable HD when I plugged it into my Dell Latitude PIII-500 laptop. I found out that the power supplied by the USB 1.1 port was not enough to power the drive so I used the additional USB plug it had to connect to another USB port on the laptop (via the PS2 port). It worked after that.

Thankyou for your reply SirDrag, I have tried the above, my daughter is helping me from her end, we are going to try disk director suite to see if it will pick it up, and units light comes on and I can feel it going, but it does not register on the PC, it says new found hardware on the laptop and nothing comes up. It does not show anywhere. We will try the disk director and see what happens, or I might just have to send it back, my daughter thinks that it might have to be formatted.
Let me know if you have any other ideas, again thanks

regards mollysmerlin

You need a 2.5" inch SATA to USB external harddrive enclosure.

since its a laptop hard drive you need a small case.
for example this one http://www.amazon.com/2-5-SATA-HDD-Enclosure-Black/dp/B0018TCB0O

if its an external hard drive then and you want to install the hard drive on your computer, you have to install the BIOS on it and then install the OS you want on it also. this will make the hard drive able to be used by your computer.

if its a portable hard drive, then just use the control panel of your computer to find the device, normally any plug-n-play device is usually recognised and installed automatically by your computer.

cheers.

Device not working


Most of the time when you get error messages like this it is due too drivers. Now in order to determine this issue I need to know what type of computer you have, OS installed on it, how old the PC etc. Please advise!
