Computer doesn't recognise hardrive

It may seem obvious, but did you try a different USB port? Did you try a different computer? and did you try a different cable/cables?

My external hd (fantom titanium) doesn't regularly open on my mac suddenly


Inside the case of that Fantom is a regular harddrive.

Also inside that outer case is a small circuit board, that either the harddrive plugs directly into it; or there is an interface block the harddrive plugs into, and there are wires from it, that connect to the small circuit board.

(The USB cable is connected to the small circuit board)

It is this small circuit board that usually goes bad.

My suggestion is to remove the harddrive inside, purchase an economical external enclosure, and install the harddrive in it.
Have your harddrive back, and be able to use it as an external harddrive again also.

The Harddrive Inside:
Harddrives are measured by their Width.
A laptop harddrive is 2.5 inches across in width. (2-1/2 inches)
A desktop harddrive is 3.5 inches.

The Fantom Titanium II 500GB's harddrive inside, is 3.5 inches,

Details > Physical Spec > Form Factor > 3.5

What I can't tell you is whether it is an IDE (PATA) harddrive, or a SATA harddrive.
However this external enclosure for 3.5 inch harddrives, is for both IDE, (PATA), and SATA harddrives,

[ You can also look at the label on the harddrive, and look up it's model number online, to see if it is IDE or SATA. Just type the model number in your search bar ]

Just want to include information on IDE (PATA), and SATA, in case you are interested,

Hi I've Vaio VPCSC1AFM with Win 7, boot is impossible -"Operating System Not Found", HDD is also not visible in BIOS. I can hear that HDD is working.

* Look in your BIOS, I've it can detect the HDD.
( Press the F1 or F10 key after restarting the computer) * Make sure all the cables are connectedproperly.

* It might be a jumper setting.

I've you have 2 HDD's on 1 cable, you need to have 1 Master & 1 Slave,or else your HDD(s) wont show up & other problems.

Jumper settings below (Yourjumper settings might be different !)

I've this all didnt work, either your HDD or your MOBO is broken.

When printing, sentences over lap so the document is unreadable. Also it may only print the first line of a document.


I've seen word documents do this sometimes and fixing it has worked differently each time.

1) Open the document and press CTRL + A (select all) on the keyboard and then CTRL + C (copy), then start a new document and press CTRL + V (paste). Save the new document as something different and try printing again.

2) Open the document again and select all and copy again,but this time open wordpad (a different program to Microsoft Word) by going to Start > Programs > Accessories > Wordpad, and paste the text into wordpad. This may change some of the formatting. Now, select all again, and copy, and start a new word document and paste.

Copying the text out of word and back in seems to work more often. Sometimes the best program to copy out to is notepad, but you lose pretty much all of the formatting when you copy back into word.

3) If this doesn't work, you could try to update your printer drivers, and if that doesn't work, as a last resort, you can delete the printer and create it again via the Control Panel > Printers.
