I really doubt that you can use it as an internal drive..
i would guess that changing the battery source would be your best bet.. so try to send it for repairment..
the other thing that could have happened is that you lost your entire information from some sort of burnment... that also can happen on internal disk when a power failure comes..
so if you have really really important information and need to take it back, you could try changing the plates to another one of the same model and rescue the info from there..
and yes.. it is insane and extremely hard to do.. but there is a group of people on the internet that specialice on getting information from disk and stuff..... they once got some info from a disquette that got cutted with a pair of sisccors, what they did was put all the pieces of the disk back together with scotch tape and put everything back into another flopply disk case..and it worked... so my theory of changing the plates is quite posible, but somewhat unnesesary for the huge ammount of work...

What are the parts called - Data connection plug broke off inside freeagent external drive


You can try installing the drive into a new enclosure as long as the internal circuitry of the free agent did not alter the formatting of the hard drive. IE in a buffalo external drive the internal circuitry creates a linux partition on the hard drive that cannot be read by windows directly.

Windows XP Pro will not boot up after installing Goflex external hard drive. I have disabled Legacy USB and reset boot drive order to my drive as first.


Hi oysjerry,
I see that you are experiencing a no boot issue after you installed your Goflex external HDD. before doing the options below, you can try booting into windows but do no connect your external Hard Drive on the system.
  • Keep on tapping f12 upon powering the system to get into the Boot menu screen then select you hard drive in the machine then press enter to boot to it.
  • If it boots into you internal hard drive after doing the Boot menu option then you do the last option provided.
  • Try changing the BIOS setting, check the Boot sequence if boot to other devices is the first boot priority then change it to your internal hard drive in the machine.
this should fix you concern,
if still this does not boot into windows

Is it possible to boot from an Iomega eGo Blackbelt Mac Edition Portable HD and also use it to clone an existing drive? I want to upgrade an existing 160GB Internal HDD in a Macbook Pro 17" to a...


It's possible to clone to this drive, but over the USB interface, it will be very slow. Firewire would be faster. It's also possible to boot from it, but again, it will be slower than an internal. What you've described, however, IS possible.

My pc tells me that I'm running out of hard drive


You can use either.

You can also use external portable hard disk, you can move all your software and stuff to it.

Better would be installing a new operating system to new hard **** with larger capacity, it will make your system fast.

You can also fit hard disk in your computer PC cabinet, you will just need to set it as "Slave" or secondary hard disk, to do this, setting is available on the hard disk.

Does the toshiba satellite a135 s2276 accomodate a second hard drive?


You won't find internal room to place a second hard drive, if that's what you're asking. Most laptops simply do not have the internal space, especially thin-line units.

What you could do for extra storage space is purchase an external drive.

Putting together and external HD


You purchased a SATA hard drive. Your enclosure is probably meant for an IDE hard drive. If you can, return the SATA hard drive and exchange it for an IDE hard drive.
