Need Hard Drive for "Great Quality" Laptop Model RX-7330 or GREEN733

In a fit of computer madness, I totally damaged my hard drive for my GQ RX-7330. Actually, it was a great machine for what I was using it for. Now I want to get another hard drive and OS. Any ideas?

I have western digital external hdd usb 2.0 and i have opened it now i want to connect it as internal hdd, its a sata drive inside when i opened the cover

The specific connection depends on the form factor the hard drive mechanism and the computer in which you want to install it. If it's a 3.5" drive and you want to put it in a laptop, forget it; it won't fit in there.

If you want to put a 3.5" drive in a desktop system, you need a SATA drive power connector from the power supply, a SATA data cable, and a SATA port on the motherboard or an expansion card. (note that you will probably not be able to boot from this drive if it is connected through an expansion card unless your computer's BIOS supports booting from a PCI device). It's also highly desirable to have an empty drive bay in which to to mount the unit.

If the hard drive has a 2.5" form factor (2.5" wide), and it is to go into a laptop, you will need the 2.5" hard drive adapter for your particular laptop (many manufacturers have a special cable or adapter for hard drives, although they should all fit the SATA interface. However, if your laptop is an older model designed for PATA IDE drives, the STAT drive will not be compatible.

To put a 2.5" SATA drive in a desktop computer, you need an adapter kit. This includes a 2.5" - 3.5" drive mounting bracket adapter and a cable adapter connector for 3.5" drive connections as described in the second paragraph above. Many computer parts merchants carry these.

Western Digital 1TB My Passport Essential SE USB 3.0 Portable External, WDBACX0010BBKSN USB 2.0 Hard Drive not recognised

Hi there. Here are some solutions you could try 1. Try connecting it with a different USB cable as the present one may be faulty. 2. If you can open the casing, do so to confirm if there is a loose connection. 3. You can try this great application tool from Seagate called Sea Tool. You will need to download and install on your computer. This tool examines you hard drive and lets you know if it is totally damaged. You can download it here. SEATOOL

          I need to install a new hard drive .. how do I do


          1. urn the laptop over. Position your laptop in the direction so that the Toshiba label, on the bottom of the hard panel, is facing you. Your Toshiba label is positioned correctly if it is positioned on the upper-left side of the external hard panel. Remove the battery pack from the bottom your Toshiba laptop to be sure it is powered off.
          2. Step 2 Remove your laptop's external hard panel. This panel is the external plastic layer on the back of your computer to cover and protect your computer's most important hardware components. The screws you need to remove are located on the four outermost corners of the bottom of your laptop. Follow the chart guide listed in Tips for screw and screw driver compatibility and removal. Distance your screws from your workstation to avoid mixing them up and/or losing them.
          3. Step 3 Locate your hard drive panel drawer door when you have totally removed the external hard panel. It is located where the smaller door in the bottom-right panel was before your removed the external hard panel. Your hard drive will be locked into this specific drawer door and the computer itself. Completely unlock the hard drive and remove the drawer from your laptop.
          4. Step 4 Remove the entire hard drive from the drawer door. Hold the hard drive on all sides to ensure that you do not drop it. Place the removed hard drive in an enclosure area to avoid damage of any kind.
          Place the new hard drive in and put it back up.

          Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

          Cannot detect hard drive

          Unfortunately, you have to have the hard drive installed and running to do a manufacturer on line test, or if you have a usb cable with a 2.5" adapter on other end to connect to a pc to see if it runs or is readable. Not all hardrives work in all laptops, try to fit same make as removed if you already have'nt. Although, why keep something that was damaged in the post, try for a return.
