Hello Rivcr, 1. Check for a terminator on the back of the scsi unit. 2. Make sure you have power. 3. make sure power switch is on. 4. Select a different scsi id number, not 0 or 1 or 7. Does this help?

Upgrade hard drives on 670


There is a 2TB limit with MBR (Master Boot Record), but even a larger drive can be partitioned. So a single 4TB (biggest on the market) drive will look like several drives.
External drives that are bigger than 4TB are really several physical drives combined by an array.

RAID 1 requires optional SCSI drives, cables, and even software?

Add on SATA 3 cards to PCI are not a good idea if you are looking for speed. They just bottlenecks the throughput.

I would replace the power supply if there is no light assuming you tried a different power cord and outlet. They put the light there to notify you if you are getting power or not.

I have a acer aspire t180 desktop with a 250gb hitachi scsi (ide) hd. I would like to know which hard drives are compatible so that I can exchange it. thanks


It's a SATA harddrive, not SCSI.

Serial ATA

Acer Support > Aspire T180 > Specifications >

http://www.acersupport.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireT180/AspireT180sp2.shtml

Will use up to a 400GB SATA harddrive according to Acer.

IDE stands for Integrated Drive Electronics.
Another name is PATA.
Parallel ATA
Used to distinguish between IDE and SATA.

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Drive_Electronics

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATA

3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCSI

Exchange it?
Your harddrive has the Operating System on it.
A new harddrive will not have an O/S on it.
(Windows XP is an example of an O/S)

It would be much easier to install the harddrive you wish into an external enclosure, and plug the external enclosure's USB cable into your T180.

One example of a desktop size harddrive SATA external enclosure,
(3.5 inch SATA external enclosure.
3 and 1/2 inches across in width, for a desktop harddrive.
Laptop HD's are 2.5)

you don't need drivers for a new hard-drive  but your motherboard may need usb drivers   go to your computers manufacturers website to find drivers.  A new hard-drive needs to be set up  in control panel administrator tools/computer management/disk management  you can try to activate your new drive  then format it  if Vista format in NTFS  if XP either NTFS or the older Fat32   if you can't activate the new drive get Acronis Disk Director from torrents or rapidshare or filetopia etc  if you need remote assistance I am in filetopia in the All Good Things room  I'm The_MacGyver

Acer empowering technology password recovoryThe password is store


Hi.. to find the aimdrs.dat, it is located at PQSERVICE drive/root folder. In my laptop, it is on drive x:\. Please check the drive for the location in your computer. You can access the PQSERVICE, For example:
- go to command prompt (Click start, run, type: cmd)
- type: " x: " (without " ")
- type: " dir " (you will see the file of aimdrs.dat is there)
- you can copy the file to any location.
for example to external flash drive which is in drive f:\
type: copy aimdrs.dat f:\ (the aimdrs.dat file will be copied to your new location, flash disk in drive f:\
- you can open the flash disk and open the aimdrs.dat file by right click on the file and choose open with notepad or wordpad. You will see the password in there. It will say "PD=it's your password".

That's what I was doing with my Acer laptop to get the empowering technology password. I hope you can solve the problem. Good luck.

do you mean an external drive for backing up your files ?... if so any usb external drive will work...of course larger then the hard drive you are backing up.

Hi Sean

did you terminate the scsi chain accordingly?.. you may have to do that physically on the scsi controller and your scsi drive (check your manuals or the device themselves.. make sure also they're using different id's.

after checking termination and id's i would check the seagate's website for an updated driver or the the windows update website (manual update) to see if there's something new...

hope that helps!

SCSI Cables Keep Coming Loose!


I use electrical tape for such things. Just wrap it around the cable and then tape it to the tower. It is pretty safe and is easy to remove.
