If you just want to use old drive for data, here is a way to get rid of old OS. Put your CD for the OS (any will do, but XP works best for me.) Make sure you have CD as a boot drive. When it says "push any key to boot from CD" hit the space bar. Let it go through the motions and when it finally is ready, pick install Windows. It will ask you to pick a partition, and go to Mad dog hard drive. Click on remove partition, and when this is done, eject CD and shut down computer. You can now use FDISK to create partition and format it. Windows will not let you delete an operating system, but you can fool it into letting you this way. Hope this helps!

Need manual for mad dog multimedia external wiring harnness


Unfortunately, Mad Dog Multimedia went out of business years ago, and no longer provide support services or documentation for any of their products.

Unless you can find another one of these external drive cases on a sale rack somewhere, or being sold used by an individual, your chances of finding the original manual are extremely slim.

I have a Mad Dog Mulltimedia external usb floppy dsrive. It does not work on my windows 7 computer. Can you help me find a driver or whatever I need? Virginia Wilbur


Mad Dog is, unfortunately, out of business by all indications and there is no support available from them. I suspect that Windows 7 will not have a driver that is compatible with the enclosure's interface. Depending upon what brand/model of actual hard drive is inside the enclosure (Western Digital, Seagate, whatever) you may be able to dismantle the enclosure, remove the actual disk drive, and use it in another enclosure with an up-to-date interface. That is only a suggestion...it would require a certain amount of mechanical expertise and a good phillips screwdriver ;-)

My Mad Dog external hard drive does not show up as a drive. How do I get this to show so I can access my information.


Connect it to a different computer, to see if the device is working at all.

If not, and if the Mad Dog is still under warranty, then exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Otherwise, disassemble the casing, remove the disk-drive,
and connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the disk-drive is OK. This would imply that the USB-to-disk-drive interface inside the casing is the problem.

Lost my installation and information cd for 3-in-1 mad dog 52x cd-rw


I can't tell you where it is sorry, but if you are running an operating system ie windows xp or newer you will not need any drivers, also depending on what ports your motherboard has you only need to connect his to either an ide port(old type) remembering that you may have a hard drive connected into one of them also you will need to set the pins to iether primary or secondary again this depends on what setup you have on your motherboard. we really need more info

You can always try surfing the new via say google or look through a webste called tops hardware for your drive.

I have a Mad Dog hard drive enclosure that I did have a Western Digital WD400 hard drive in. Now I need to recover some data from a Western Digital WD1600. The ribbin that connected to the hard drive is...


It would cost just as much to purchase a "SERILLEL" adapter as it would cost to purchase another "empty" external hard-drive case that has support for the newer-style 'SATA' hard-drive.

If you have a newer desktop-computer, you probably have an unused SATA port on your motherboard, and an unused SATA power-connector. Temporarily connect the SATA drive to your motherboard, and do the recovery.

Mad Dog External DVD Writer


I don't know if I can be of any help here, but I purchased my Mad Dog Multimedia MEGASTOR DVD+/-RW burner a few years ago for my PoweSpec with XP Home Edition. I recently bought a new computer installed with Windows Vista Home Premium (which yes, I actually do love) and my external Mad Dog works perfectly, I didn't even have to update any drivers, it recognizes the drive everytime I plug it in (via USB). I don't need it anymore, but it's actually a better burner than the one that came with my system, which I bought new in March, although it's now discontinued. Do you have the disk for it? If so, have you tried running the disk again? What OS and processor do you have? In the event that it might be a matter of obtaining the proper driver for it to work for you, I also am a member of a great and extremely reliable site for free driver downloads. Free membership is limited to a few downloads within a certain period of time,and then you have to wait 24 hours, but other than that there is no limit so that's what I do. Just for the record, there was a period where my old XP was out of commission and I had to resort to my very old HP Pavillion that was about 10 years old, came with Windows 98SE(when that OS was brand new) and all I needed to do to make Win98 recognize the drive was download a driver and it worked just fine. LOL, that has a processor that runs at 600 megahertz, so you can imagine if my Mad Dog worked on systems like that, XP Home and now Vista Home Premium without a hitch, I was quite impressed with their products.

Mad Dog USB DVD-RW not recognized


The firmware updates and drivers won't help you. You can try turning it off, disconnecting it from your PC, then turning off your PC, turning on the burner and then turning your PC back on and hope that it's recognized. The chances are slim as this is a known issue with Mad Dog external USB DVDRW's and you need to send it in for repair if it's under warranty or put it on eBay as broken (or throw it out) otherwise and get a new one. I have a Mad Dog external DVD-RW and ran into the same exact issue, for a while it was working on and off as long as I didn't turn the burner off while my PC was on but for a while now it's just recognized by the PC as mass storage device rather than the DVDRW that it is and when you reach that point the aforementioned two choices (repair or throwing it out\putting it on ebay) are the only ones you have.
