I have a Samsung SP2514N (250GB/7200rpm/8M/PATA) drive that I am trying to use as a USB drive on my laptop with Vista on it. The device manager shows that there is a drive there, but that is all. It does...


If your using an external drive case, the jumper pins should be set at "single". If that doesn't work you can try moving the jumper till the drive shows up, or use no jumper at all. If it still doesn't work after trying all jumper positions or no jumper then the drive could be bad. Make sure to power off the drive before changing the jumper.

I using external CASE and connected in USB port.. but its detcting but it not shown in my computer.. i need anwswer plz.. is any JUMPER to place?


SATA drives do not have any jumpers.
If you were the one who mounted the EIDE drive into the external-case, be sure to set the jumper to "master" (not "slave", and not "cable-select").

Try connecting the external case to a different computer, to see if the unit works at all.

Remove the disk-drive from the case, and connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if it can be detected at all, when _not_ using the USB-to-Disk-Drive adapter.

External hard drive not detected


Check your jumpers on the hard drive. DON'T leave it connected very long if the jumpers are not set for master / slave (furthest away/ closest to the IDE port on the computer or it can mess up the circuit boards on one or both drives! If you are using only one hard drive, set the jumper(s) for "cable select" (often abbreviated CS). If it still doesn't detect the drive, the drive may not have an "active" partition on it. You can solve that by booting to your OS installation CD -- assuming you have one!

Set the jumper to use the drive as e, external drive


There usually is no specific jumper. Just set it to "master" and it should work. The external enclosure supplies the appropriate host interface, so there will be no conflict with any other internal disk.

Hard Drive not mounting


Check the jumper on each hard-drive.

My guess is that the WD drive has the jumper in the "correct" position, for mounting inside an external case, while the other drives have their jumper set to an "incorrect" position.

Set the jumper to MA(ster), not to SL(ave), nor to C(able)S(elect).

What are the jumper settings when using Philips USB 2 0 3 5 inch


No Jumper Settings are required for external drives, they are all setup as Slave by default, and if you try to open the case, to take the drive out and change the Jumper Settings, you will invalidate the warranty.
