The best bet would be to contact the supplier or the manufacturer of the case & powerpack, or your local pc dealer to purchase a new cable

good luck with that

I looking for a pcb boad for hd western digital


That would be on another WD2500JB Caviar harddrive

Either that, or start looking on the internet posting -
WD2500JB PCB Board, and see what search hits come up.

Here,.....let me try.............

http://www.hdd-parts.com/18100096.html

Before you replace it, let me ask........
1) Was it in a Desktop PC?

2) Was it in an external harddrive?

External harddrive?
Then suggest you obtain a 3.5 IDE (PATA) external enclosure,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3883498&CatId=2780

In an external harddrive there is a small interface circuit board.

The Harddrive plugs into the small interface circuit board, and the USB cable is attached to the small interface circuit board.

It is this small interface circuit board that usually goes bad.

The external enclosure is just like the case of the external harddrive.
Has a USB cable going to a small interface circuit board, and the harddrive plugs into it.

That 4 pin plug generally supplies power to the processor. It depends on the processor type. Unfortunately the next step in troubleshooting is to replace the motherboard or the processor and there really isn't a good way to know which one first.

I dont understand how to hook up my old hardrive to the sabrent hardrive enclosure


Open the enclosure, plug the IDE cable into the back of the hard drive. Plug the power connector into the back of the hard drive. Mount the hard drive with the included fasteners. Close the enclosure, Plug in the power supply to the wall. Turn on the external drive. Plug in the USB cable to your computer. Browse your files.

External hardrive wont transfer data


looks like the usb connection pins are not touching the other connection pins. just check the pins touch each other surface then the data will transfer. check all four pins. if it is a standard A connector then far two pins are power supply and middle two pins are data pins.

v- data- data+ v+
the above are the pins in a standard usb connector

Computer comes on when plugged it. Power switch is useless.


it should be the pins on the bottom or out side of the mother board, closest to the edge and it goes on that row of pins only it doesnt lay across the two rows as long as you do that there wont be any shorts as these pins are for power and hardrive lights only theres no way to short out the motherboard by doing that.

Western Digital 80gb HDD Fails when installing OS


Try changing the jumper settings to make it the Master instead of the slave drive

External Hard Drive isn't recognized on new Vista Computer


here are several possibilities
Bad Cable - Well it is probably unlikely, but I would first try another USB cable just to make sure the cable is not damaged.
2. Power Supply - Try another power supply if you have or can borrow one
3. Controller Failed – The Controller inside it has failed.
4.Drive Failure – The Hard Disk inside has failed. Drives typically have an average 5 year lifespan, some last longer and some can fail much sooner. Unfortunately, you rarely have any warning, thus the need for backups.

I have a western digital elements external hard drive and my power cable has broken and i cant seem to find replacement parts anywhere


The power cable you are talking about--is the cable itself broken? Do you mean the wires are cut?
It requires an AC adapter. If you take it to an electronics store, there is a good chance they can come up with an adapter that will work. There are a bunch of universal adapters out there. All you have to do is make sure the voltage/amperage is the same and the plug fitsl
I suppose you could ask Western Digital for a replacement, but that might be expensive.
