Is it possible to connect the HP xb3000 to an apple computer

It's only possible if the main connector will fit into the apple. I haven't seen the female connectors of apple computers lately, but I'd bet that the HP XB3000 connector will only fit into an HP Laptop.

I have a HP xb3000 notebook expansion base for my HP Pavilion dv9500 laptop. The problem is the laptop is having display issues (flickering screen, black screen, horizontal lines, etc). The expansion base...

as the posters said, you can move any working HDD or SSD
be it old PATA or new SATA cables, using and adaptor.
google that see 1million examples.
to any PC, and backup data.
i reading your manual online, remove the hdd, carrier.
as it tell you on page 5.7
it shows the OLD OLD PATA cable.
now most PC made have no such port now
so we buy a HDD enclosure, and it convertes, PATA to USB
and now you can plug it in to any PC mADe and use it.

#1 is old PATA, (parallel interface from dark ages of PC)#2 is power

I have a HP Pavilion Computer and a HP xb3000 expansion base. The base doesn't seem to work anymore, including the extra USB ports or speakers. It appears that only the power supply through the base to...

they are now obsolete.
there is no support on them now.
HP zero
no books
no schematics
they call that legacy stuff now, and everyone cringes at the thought.
why not ask HP actual
let them cringe.
the base only works on the data sheet listed PCs. (we have that)
you never said which one. you have (if you cheat this, it works 1/2 way or not at all or fails randomly, )

XB3000 Intermittent power

wow like XB3000 day, find it in garage sale for $3?
DV9000 is a match !
This is dead product, now in the LEGACY status....(means dead)
NO OS stated, XP??? why post leaving out the most key part.?
this device has zero support at HP now. zip
and is a 2005 produced (first one) and is XP only, (will 2005 is that)
the drivers are not available now. anywhere,
so... only google might find them, I see zero

HP does not support old legacy devices, who does?
no law requires over 10 year support.
so if all XP drivers for the XB3000 are present
and all batteries are good.
power packs all good.
and no XP viruses present (never seen 1 XP clean in my life)
then it can work
did you read the manual first


try to know that parts this old can not even be sourced now.
did youo ever work in production factory like me.?>(sr. tech)
ever see things go obsolete like the drop of hat??
need list of all chips not gone. from earth , have it. its near endless.
no company in the world , can just wave a wand and have parts
not made now , magically , show up.

how ever if rich and want to fix a device that has street value of about $3 it can be fixed,, $300 labor.?
with hard work, finding legacy parts, only ebay has them.
parts not made now. or google for them. 1 by 1.
we do this all the time but not on $3 devices
(high end projection systems?)
now learn this, first find what is really broken and then lay blame
not throw mud lacking facts. and win.

the batteries are not in warranty and not one other part either.
this is what LEGACY is all about.

No lie i could fix it but you cant afford me or my tools.
sorry for the hard truth.

one other problem is the HP has no books with schematics
a tech needs those. to do the diagnosis.
its really just a toy, a throw away device.
if you went to ebay they can be had for $5 working, near free
less than a pack of CIGS.
why fix a $3 box when a $5 box works> ????
