CAN I USE MY HARD DISC WITH USB CONNECTION


Yes, you can. You'll need a little more hardware however. You can find "hard drive enclosures" at many computer stores, ebay and electronics stores. They look like these. In order to make this work, you need to determine the physical size and interface of the Samsung hard drive first. Most notebook drives are 2.5" and most desktop drives are 3.5" types (regardless of capacity). You'll need to find an enclosure for the drive size and interface type.

The Samsung drive is likely to be either and IDE type with a SATA (serial) or PATA (parallel) interface. Pictures of SATA cables are here, and PATA cables are here. You would select the enclosure depending on 2.5" or 3.5" size and SATA or PATA interface type. Lastly, would be to choose either a USB connection between the computer and enclosure, or an ESATA type. ESATA simply means External SATA. If your computer offers an ESATA jack on the front or rear panel, you might consider using it as it is much faster than USB. If you do not have an ESATA jack, stick with the USB type. All but the most oldest computers support USB 2.0 standard speeds, newer computers have a faster USB 3.0 speed (5Gbit/S) standard, but this hardware is fully backward compatible to the USB 2.0 & USB 1 speed (480Mbi/S) and hardware standards. If your computer has the original USB 1.x standrad speeds, you might consider purchasing a USB 2.0 or 3.0 expansion card as the USB 1.x standard is very slow (just 12 Mbit/S). Check these links for pictures of ESATA, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 If you look closely, you can see the slight differences. USB 1.0 and USB 2.0 look identical.

Some enclosures will require / include a power adapter for the drive. Make sure you get what is required to get the drive to spin up properly. After your computer is up and running, connect the external drive to the USB jack and let the computer install drivers as needed; then use it as any other thumb drive etc. ESATA however may be different. In any case, follow the instructions included with the enclosure you purchased.

After copying good data, you might be able to format and scan the Samsung drive and map out the errant portions. Even still, I would not use the drive for important information or day to day uses. If you do, be sure to maintain frequent backups.

Good luck!

My computer malfunctioned and I took out the hard drive to try and retrieve my files using a USB cable. I am stuck


Your hard drive has no USB port, it has a (seral) SATA 3 GB/sec interface, currently and
by far the most popular used on laptops, and also desktop computers. The SATA (serial advanced technology interface) 3 GB/Sec is version 2.0 of the SATA standard.

So, you'll need another laptop or desktop with a spare SATA 2.0 port, or a spare SAS (Serial
Attached SCSI) port, since SATA drive may be attached to SAS backplanes, as well as SATA backplanes. For a laptop, you may need to use the eSATA connector/cable
(see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ESATA#eSATA for eSATA technical specs and a photo).

Can I use the Antec MX-25 to transfer files from my PC (desktop)


Hi,

The answer is yes and no. The Antec MX25 is just an enclosure for a hard drive, you will need to purchase a separate hard drive to put into the enclosure. Think of it like an empty box to hold the hard drive. Once you have it fitted out with a hard drive, you can then transfer files from your PC to the drive and then take them wherever you need.

The hard drive you will need will be a 2.5" SATA hard drive, up to a maximum 500GB in size.

Hope this helps.

Dell Tech Support replaced my laptop hard drive and left me the old hard drive that is functional, but has alot of vibration. How do I replace the new laptop hard drive data with the old laptop hard drive...


First what type of hard drive do you have? IDE or SATA (IDE has a very wide data ribbon, SATA a much thinner one when you look at the back of the drive). You need to get either an external 2.5" drive enclosure or a USB/IDE/SATA bare drive connector. For the external enclosure, you need to get the right one for your drive. The data output can be either USB or eSATA, if your laptop has that port and you have a SATA drive). The USB/IDE/SATA connectors can be either bus powered or self-powered. The bus powered ones do not have enough power for some drives. With either of these, the drive must be connected carefully and with the correct orientation of the power and data connectors.

Connect the drive or install it into the enclosure. (For this, open the case, slide the drive part way in and connect the cables, push the drive the rest of the way in. Screw the drive into the frame if this is a needed step. I have seen any tool-less enclosures but read the instructions.) Power on the device and plug it into the appropriate connection on your computer. The device should be found by your computer and the drivers should load.

Assuming your computer sees the drive (if it doesn't one of the cables is probably not seated properly or not correctly oriented to the device), then you can just copy the files to the new drive. Setting up your e-mail may take a bit longer, you may need to import your profile in addition to copying it to the new drive into a folder in the same location.

I hope this helps.

(If you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself, there are many data recover companies as well as computer repair shops that will install your drive into the enclosure you buy.)

I bought a coolmax hd-250B-u2 sata enclosure case and my computer doesn't recognize the hard drive that i have installed...help!


What drive did you put in there ?

Make sure it is connected directly to a USB 2.0 port on the computer some enclosures dont like hubs and even if it did work from a hub you should ensure the hub has its own power supply. Also only use the cable that came with it not one that looks the same that you may have lying around.

An external USB drive consists of tow parts:

a hard drive (usually a standard IDE or SATA drive), and

an enclosure

The enclosure is the box containing the drive. It also includes an interface to convert the data from the IDE or SATA interface on the drive to a USB (2) signal. Some enclosures include and internal power supply. The Freeagent has the power supply externally.

Hope that's what you mean.
