I have just received a new Sabrent ECS-U35K Hard Drive Enclosure. When I plug the power supply in, the LED on the supply doesn't light up. Do I have a defective power supply?

Macally G-S350SUA power supply


  • I have the same Macally hard drive enclosure and I misplaced my power supply also. I used an old IBM Thinkpad power supply. These are common and cheap. The Macally enclosure states 12V DC input, and the Thinkpad PS is rated at 16V but it works fine. The plug and polarity are correct.

Sabrent didn't come with drivers for windows vista and 7


It states online that it is "Plug-in-Play" and that it doesn't need drivers.

Hope this helps!

I need a new board card, where the usb and power adapter plug in, how can I order


Instead, purchase a "generic" drive-enclosure that is "empty" -- just the enclosure and the power-supply, and "transplant" your disk-drive from the "old" enclosure into the "new" enclosure.
Costs about $30.

I have pluged in the usb plug and plug the maxtor to the electrical plug but nothimg happens. How do I get it going?


Take a multi-meter, and test the voltage and amperage outputs from the power-supply, to confirm that the readings match the specifications on the label on the power-supply.

If the power-readings are correct, then when you connect the power to the external enclosure, you should either hear the disk-drive start to spin, or feel the vibrations as the disk-drive spins.
If you don't, then the disk-drive inside the enclosure has "died".

If the device is still under warranty, MAXTOR will replace the disk-drive, for minimal costs to you.

If the warranty has ended, then open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, install it into the enclosure, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

Need to find how to allow access to old hard drive. hard drive loads up and opens ,but when i click on file access is denied


You are not giving a lot of information (like what operating system you are using, what privileges your account has, etc). However, it sounds like a permissions issue - make sure you are logged in as an administrator.

Also, if the drive was originally encrypted, you may need to have your login account set up with the same user name and password that the old drive originally had in order to access the files.

Sabrent ECS-U35K Hard Drive Enclosure AC Adapter repair


I would sure enjoy helping you figure your problem. I've taken Electronic courses in the Navy and in college, so this shouldn't be too hard.
As far as the capacitor goes, manufacturers make several different products from the same PCB layout, just some don't have all the components. Once I see where the capacitor should be I can tell you if its necessary or not.
For the fuse, it sounds like there is a short somewhere further in the circuitry. Rather surprised it blew right off the bat, but people and machine alike can make mistakes when building things. I fixed a laptop power supply where they didn't even solder the source resistor for the switcher.
Upload your pictures, and we shall we what we can do with it!

Reduced Hard Drive Capacity with Internal to External Kit


Problem can be tricky.. though i offer my two cents.

1. some BIOS have upper limit of hard disk capacity. check that out. try connecting IDE device to IDE connector in same comp and see if it is being detected properly.

2. seagate guys are true .. IDE to usb conversion can be tricky ... a lot depends on card convertor.

my advice would be if you have precious data on it ... first take a backup of it, if possible connecting the disk to nomal ide connector.

Short Cicuit on my Buffalo external hard disk...Help!!!!!!!!!


First of all Hi!

This Fixya will help you solve this problem. First of all your hard drive should be still ok but you will require to open the hard drive enclosure and replace the power supply (due to the wrong voltage tapping). Please feel free to follow these fixya's not only to recover your photos but get back a working hard drive!

Solution 1: Check fuses
1. Disconnect faulty enclosure from any mains supply
2. If power supply is INTERNAL you will have to OPEN the enclosure but BEFORE you do that WITH THE hard drive UNPLUGGED TURN ON the power switch to discharge the hard drive's internal power supply
2. Open the enclosure and check for any fuses on the inside. There should be one located close to the power swtich from inside. Change it with one of a similar rating because most probably this is the culprit.
3. Try and power up the drive THIS TIME WITH the CORRECT voltage tapping
4. If the power supply is EXTERNAL you do not need to open the enclosure, just change the power supply with a similar one and you should be up and running again.

Solution 2: But the fuse is ok but there is bbq smell when i opened the enclosure!
1. Ok this means that you will need to get hold of the internal hard drive.
2. If you have another computer check if the hard drive is still ok! Here is how:
- Turn off the computer
- Open case , #
- Hook it up to the Internal IDE cable and the internal power connector
- Turn on the computer.
- You should have this detected in my computer as a new hard drive and you
should be able to see all the data in it
2. But probably you still want this as external dont you? Ok buy another enclosure from a computer shop (this time you will just need an empty one)
3. Plug the hard drive in new enclosure. If you're not experienced enough just give it to them to hoook it up for you and FINALLY you should have the reincarnated buffalo hard drive functional again.

Hope this fixya was of help :)

Best Regards
ALx
