Question about HP xb3000 (417329-001) Docking Station

Open Question

I have an HP xb3000 Expansion Base which I was using with my HP Pavillion Laption that has now crashed. I have purchased an HP G62 series notebook and it does not have the port needed for the expansion base cable connector. My question is is there an adaptor for this cable to say USB or HDMI? I just spent an hour with HP Support on the phone and they could not help me. any help would be greatly appreciated!

Dear conniejo10,
Since your expansion base setup sucesfuly, all you have to do is try to reconfigure your display properties, this is HOW:

Right Click On your Desktop>Choose PROPERTIES on contect menu>


Choose The SETTING tabs, Choose your additional Screen to come on, (it should be position on the '2' Screen when you click on it, the you adjust the resolution by sliding the display control or try to click the ADVANCE/SETTING buton the choose the ADAPTER tabs, the click the LIST ALL MODE button the you choose which resolution that fit your need and match the color mode (better to set to TRUE COLOR).
Then You just hit the apply button. Some hardware need to reboot but some don't.

You should see the two display are now come on at the same time as if you plug the AV out cable in on you expantion base or your Note book.

Good Luck!

Best Regards,

Is it possible to connect the HP xb3000 to an apple computer

It's only possible if the main connector will fit into the apple. I haven't seen the female connectors of apple computers lately, but I'd bet that the HP XB3000 connector will only fit into an HP Laptop.

HP XB3000 Docking Station HDD Hard Drive Tray
I just received an XB3000 expansion base and I've found an opening for an expansion hard drive, but it needs a special tray. Ebay has a seller who is pricing them at $119. Less the drive itself. I payed a total of $36 for my docking station and I'm not sure what magic the extra drive would bring about. So if I find out that adding a hard drive inside my fancy docking station works magic I'll purchase the tray, but if it doesn't do anything special I'll skip the waste of money.

as the posters said, you can move any working HDD or SSD
be it old PATA or new SATA cables, using and adaptor.
google that see 1million examples.
to any PC, and backup data.
i reading your manual online, remove the hdd, carrier.
as it tell you on page 5.7
it shows the OLD OLD PATA cable.
now most PC made have no such port now
so we buy a HDD enclosure, and it convertes, PATA to USB
and now you can plug it in to any PC mADe and use it.

#1 is old PATA, (parallel interface from dark ages of PC)#2 is power
