Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I just purchased a WD MY Book Studio Edition 1TB external hard drive. I am trying to install it and the little slip of paper inside said for leopard 10.5 to look for article #1716 for installation instructions. I have searched and searched and cannot find it. I have an airport wireless router so I used a USB hub to plug the printer and the hard drive into and the power source is plugged in and the light comes on in the hard drive.

External Usb Hard Drive Data Recovery


Have a external Hard drive? Does not power on or the computer does not find it? Do these steps below for your fix.

Folks I am going to demonstrate to you how to save your data on your failed external usb hard drive.

The Videos below will show you how to retrieve the hard drive out of a My book 1TB drive. This method can be used for all external hard drives as there all basically SATA drives.

1. You need a flat head screw driver.
2. You take the drive in your hand and you pry it open around the sides and back there are no screws on this drive.
3. Once you got it open you basically follow the steps below in the video and what you can do is put this hard drive inside of another case or directly into the computer.

The videos are kinda dark but you can basically see and hear what I am doing here folks.

When you follow my video's here you will have a fix as long as the drive is not crashed. Opening the drive up VOIDS the warranty for the drive so please if you have a warranty and care less about the data sent it back to the manufacture.

I hope you find these video's helpful

What type or brand of hard drive do I have to get to install in Acer AM5641 Desktop ? I want to upgrade to a 1 tb hd.


You currently have a 320GB 7200-rpm SATA II hard drive, with 8MB cache install on a base package of your make and model of computer. I would recommend a hard drive like Samsung Spinpoint F4EG 2 TB Internal hard drive. You can find it roughly for $70.00 - $90.00 at online stores like amazon, new egg, etc.

I hope this helps.

Try reinstalling your USB port drivers
you may want to cut and paste this, then print it as it may involve a forced shutdown of your PC and you wont see the text.


from here--------------------------------------------------------------------

firstly unplug your external USB hard drive

assuming you are using windows
right click my computer
left click properties
click on hardware tab
click device manager button click the little + next to Universal serial bus
right click all the child devices below this such as generic USB hub intel (r) blah blah ICH7 blah blah USB root hub
and systematically click uninstall
if you are using a USB mouse there is a chance at some point doing this, it will stop working temporarily.
restart the computer with a shutdown if possible, if not press and hold your power button till it shuts off.
it should automatically find your USB ports and reinstall the drivers.
then when its finished (can take 5 minutes wait until your confident its not got more (found new hardware) popups.
insert your USB hard drive, this time I'm sure it will find it.
if not and you simply must get the data, open the USB hard disk. you will find a standard SATA hard disk inside, connect it to a spare SATA port and power cable inside your PC
Hope this helps

I BELIEVE THAT WD PROVIDES A CD WITH "WD DATA LIFEGUARD UTILITIES." IF YOU USE THAT DISK AND SELECT "DRIVE TO DRIVE COPY" SELECTION. THIS SHOULD CREATE A CLONE OF YOUR ORIGIONAL DISK. SELECT THE NEW DRIVE TO BOOT FROM EITHER IN BIOS SETTINGS OR FROM THE BOOT SELECT "F12" OPTION.
THE PC SHOULD BOOT FROM THE NEW DRIVE IF SELECTED
