Coolmaster X Craft E-Sata 3.5'' Case Assembly

Purchased this external hard drive back in Aug 07 and had no trouble assembling and putting the external drive unit in it but the other day when I was unplugging it the top cover came off at one end. The problem is that I cant seem to work out how it goes back on as it wont just slide back into position. The top cover is now completely off but still not able to get it back on. I no longer have the instructions that came with the unit, so have nothing to relate to. Have tried getting instructions from the net to no avail so came about this site in the process and thought you might be able to help.

Regard
Vicki

What is the difference between a external hard


External hard drives contain a power supply to operate a standard hard drive in a case. It usually connects to a USB port. Usb drives get their power from the wire that connects it to the USB port A regular internal hard drive gets it's power from the computer's power supply wiring. The data cable is either a flat ribbon cable or a 6 pin cable that connects directly to the mother board.

LG dvd external drive not recognized by computer


ERROR 43? Check your SATA connection.
HERE'S HOW I FIXED MINE.
(IE. Computer tries to install driver for BD burner, but ultimately fails, and gives the message. "Unsuccessful" and/or "Microsoft Windows stopped device. Error 43") The SATA CONNECTION on my BD burner's EXTERNAL CASE had gone bad.
TO TEST IT. I used a SATA/IDE to USB Adapter Cable I bought for about $10 on amazon.
  • I unscrewed the external case to get at the internal drive, and plugged the SATA adapter cable directly into the internal BD burner drive (bypassing the case assembly), and plugged the other end into my computer USB port.
    • PS My BD burner POWER was working OK, so I left the big white 4pin power adapter connected to the original external case.

VOILA! Both my laptop and my desktop PC recognized the LG BD burner again and assigned it a drive letter (like it used to do).

  • Now I either need to (1) Buy a NEW EXTERNAL case ($10 - $30), (2) install it as an internal drive (could get problematic if "ANYDVD" is installed) or (3) just leave it connected via the cheap adapter cable.
It's super EASY (& inexpensive) to TEST this before spending $$$$ on a new equipment.
Hope this helps someone. It had me miffed for a while there.

Hi there. When talking about USB 3.0. Can say say that there is a USB 3.0 hard drive? Or can I say that if I have an external USB 3.0 hard drive case and place a hard drive in it it would have the USB


USB 3 has the fastest data transfer speed through a computer with USB 3 port. If your computer does not support USB 3 then it cannot transfer data at USB 3 speeds.
If you install a hard drive into an USB 3 hard drive adapter case and the data transfer speed would depend how fast a hard drive you install in this USB 3 adapter case.
A SATA hard drive is faster than an IDE/PATA hard drive. Make sure you get the correct USB hard drive adapter case with the SATA or IDE/PATA connector that matches the hard drive.

I'm trying to install a Western Digital Serial ATA Hard Drive into the external hard drive enclosure. There are no instructions as to what cables need to be attached and to where


USB external hard drive cases are supplied with SATA and power connectors attached to the circuit board in the case. If you canot connect it to the SATA hard drive then you may have the wrong drive case, your case may be a IDE or SCSI type.

Putting together and external HD


You purchased a SATA hard drive. Your enclosure is probably meant for an IDE hard drive. If you can, return the SATA hard drive and exchange it for an IDE hard drive.
