HI:
The problem is this, Harddrives are sealed for a reason, to prevent contamination of the platters, they alss use pressure built inside of the unit to do this also, as the platters spins at high speeds. Once the device is opened you basically have ruined the harddrive because particals in the air land on the discs platters contaminating them. That is why they are built in lint free enviornments and the manufactures that build them do it in clean rooms.and wear protective mask and suits. Keep in mind that a piece of lint to the heads of the harddrive might as well be a giant bolder in our eyes. You may be able to remove the fingerprints but this will not stop air born particals from reaching the platters.

If the turntable has a two-piece platter, Lift off the outer platter and place the belt around the inner platter and motor pulley.

If the turntable has a one-piece platter, lift off the whole patter, place the belt around the inner drum. There will be a hole in the platter's top through which you can reach a finger to stretch the belt so that the belt can be placed around the motor pulley as you put the platter back in place.

Pitch adjustment


There's a variable resistor with the name pitch besides it... first clean it and then you put your pitch fader in the middle and turn it with a screw driver, put your platter on the unit, the plastic black plate you only have to unscrew and take off , nothing else., but like i said , but the platter on it and watch the strobe lights. Determine first which way you have to screw, it's just whole the time :taking of platter and turn screw a bit(don't forget to take of the electricity when you remove the platter), put it on and do that until the strobe stays steady.

The security software should have been installed at Toshiba. If not it is easy to download and install. You should have a biometric coprocessor driver which runs the scanner. That sounds like what is missing. If you had to reinstall windows this may not have been put back in.

To get the drivers go to www.toshiba.com and then click on support.-mobile computing - drivers download. This pops up a new window that you now have to click on what model you have. I have a Tecra A8 201E so I click on notebook in the left, Tecra, then A8 and then on 201E then click on the go button. You should filter by operating system so you are only looking at the right drivers. There are three downloads for the security. One will be called HDD security, TPS Trusted Platform Security, and Fingerprint software. If you download those and save to your desktop then you can easily run then as needed. When you have them run the one called fingerprint software. That should install the scanner drivers and may be all that you need. Try running it after installing this. Make sure your backup password is something you can remember. If your scanner fails and you can't remember that then you can get locked out of your computer.

The TPS provides some other tools such as a 'safe' that saves files in an encrypted area. You can disable it if it inteferes too much.

The HDD utility locks the hard drive which can stop people from using your computer as they won't have your fingerprint to unlock the drive.

The drive belt on my Aiwa px-e860 turntable has come off. how do i put it back on


Lift felt on platter and and lift the platter section off the unit by putting your thumb and forefinger through the two large holes and pull upwards.There should not be any special routing for the belt and should go directly onto the spindle motor to your platter. Place the belt around the inside rim of the platter while it is still off the unit. Now replace the platter and move the platter around until you see the spindle motor through one of the holes. Use some tweezers to manouvre the belt onto the spindle motor. On some units you will have to lay the belt out inside the unit, replace the platter and manouvre the belt onto the platter. Hope this helps

Belt location


1) Remove the platter - just lift up
2) Underneath the platter, you'll see a small lip section
3) Wrap the belt around this lip
4) Put platter back on turntable
5) Rotate platter until you see the motor shaft through the holes on the platter - a brass round looking piece
6) Pinch the belt around the motor shaft.
7) That's it.

Need to replace hdd but cant copy old one


The Drives Reader arm Is Either Stuck Or Knocked Off Track And Can' Pass Over The Platters... The Hard Drive Will Need To Be Opened Up And Inspected/Repaired Before Data Can Be Retrieved..
You would hear a ticking or knocking sound if the arm is not working right.. If It Sounds Like its Running Properly You Might Have Erased Data by Scratching The Platters, You Can Try Using A Software Named.. Recover My Files..... And Do A Low Level Search, If THere's any life in the drive, This Program will find the data.....

No. This is not possible. The hard drive must be disassembled in a proper clean room or the data on the platters will become immediately, and permanently unreadable due to the dust in the air settling on the platters.

$900 is on the low end of the price range for a repair job on a hard drive with physical damage like that. I would take that company up on their offer.
