How to open Iomega 650 USB CDRW

I am considering using this housing/Cdrw as an external 3.5" IDE Hard disk enclosure-firstly I would appreciate some help in opening this unit without
breaking any plastic notches/retainers. It does appear that this unit locks
on assembly and any help in opening would be good.

Thanks

    This Iomega USB CDRW 650 is an external unit with its own power supply and is a Purple plastic upper case with a grey lower plastic case. There are no screws visible hence my request to find a way to 'unlock' what I would imagine are locking segments on both upper & lower case housings. Opening the CD tray is no problem, If someone can assist with the opening of the two plastic halves of the external case without breaking the Clamps/retainers then I am halfway to achieving a positive result. Thanks. Warren

    Problem solved-I decided to take the 'Bull by the Horn' and applied pressure where I considered the 'retaining clips' were located on the sides of the main body halves and also to the front disc access panel and 'Bingo' However, the ATAPI-USB interface is not designed to fit standard 3.5" IDE hard disk drives and for that reason I decided to 'flag' [give-up] the idea of using this as an external HDD Carrier. The spacing of the 'power' block & the 40 pin IDE cable/connecter is critical & will fit a few CDRW DVD units but not the Liteon units I have.

Remove the front cover.

Use thin screwdriver to pry side-locking tabs tward the center of drive.

Tabs are on both sides, near the front.

Also on both sides near the back, thru small access holes at the back, on the sides.

Comes right apart, no broken bits.

Remove the screws first at the bottom, manually open the cd tray through the hole infront, remove the cd tray cover thru some slip lock then, remove the cd front cover, you can now remove the case cover.

How do i format a disc?


You can only format re-writable disks, and it is usually done with the software that is used for burning the disk. Programs like Nero Burning Rom allow you to completely wipe a disk.

What is the difference between burn a cd and formatting a cd


Formatting a cd is to make it ready to add files to. Burning is actually adding the files to a cd. You can only format re-writables though.

If you make a multisession cd using a normal cdr then the first time you write to it the disk is made to accept your files for that session but also accept files at a later date, as it leaves the disk open and does not finalize it.

QPS-525 usb CDRW - quit working. Pwr Supply OK.


Check to see which LED is blinking, the one on the cdrw or the one just below it showing theres power to the enclosure? If theres proper power to the enclosure the green led light below the cdrw should stay solid green. If you have a blinking led light on the cdrw itself, you may wish to disassemble the enclosure and ensure all the short wire leads to the converters pcb are still properly connected and that theres nothing loose. Make sure the IDE cable is properly seated as well as the molex power connector.

A blinking led on the cdrw may signify a problem with the drive itself, since it should not be blinking unless its being accessed by the computer. You could also try reloading the drivers for it whether youre running it on a mac or windows machine. Perhaps change the usb port youre connecting too as well. Before sending the enclosure to the trash, try another cdrom drive connected inside of it. That should be the definitive test to solve whether its the fault of the enclosure or burner itself. Hope these troubleshooting tips help.

External hard drive


1) what are the operating systems on the old (dead) and target systems?

2) Try it on a second working system?

3) This sounds like an OS related problem (if it's not a dead hard drive problem). If you're running Windows, the newsgroups/forums run by Microsoft are actually pretty good. E.g. if you're using WinXP, try
microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics or
microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware
They can give you help in diagnosing the problem.

Problem on burning CDRW


run the nero drive speed first before burning in your files, if your cd in a RW or rewritable, just erase it and burn again the data's that you want.

How to install an apoen 5224 crw


If you have only a hard drive apart from this CDRW look at the connection to the hard drive and follow to the IDE0 connecter on the mobo.(do not connect CDRW to this as it will slow up the harddrive). Next to this will be another connector IDE1, if you already have a device connected to this there will be an IDE cable already there. On the IDE cable half way up will be another connector, connect this to your CDRW and set the plastic cap jumper to the SLAVE position. If no device connected you need an ide cable from the connector on the motherboard to the CDRW and set the jumper at the back at slave. Just remember if you have two peices of hardware on one cable one is set at 'MASTER' and one is set at 'SLAVE'. Don't forget to connect the power lead from the power supply unit to CDRW. Restart pc and it will be auto detected.
