Do i need to buy an ide to ubs adapter


Better to buy a new hard drive. IDE drives nowadays are mostly found on surviving old pc's. They are slow and usually of low capacity. I feel that any money spent would be better directed at replacing the hard drive.

IDE hard drive in Bytecc ME-535U2 enclosure not recognized by OS

There is a couple of things that could be going on. The first thing to check is that the drive did not get bumped off its drive letter by another device. If that is the case you just the to assign it a new one. The link below will help you do this.

The other issue is the drive may have gotten disconnected improperly. I had the same problem with one of my drive on my XP system as well. It partly has something to do with the USB controller to my understanding. Alot of times if you plug it into another computer it will detect it and ask to run a scan to repair the drive. After this you should be able to access the drive on your XP system again. Note I have the best resolutes when I plugged the drive into my Vista system. So I would recommend trying to plug it into a Windows Vista or 7 computer to attempt the repair.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions.

Drive will not show up on 'my computer'


Hello

Ok, this might just fix your problem. The thing is, if you have more than one drive attatched to your computer, the drive letters of the drives may overlap, causing some drives not to show in My computer.

Just follow these steps and you might be able to fix the problem.

Go to:
Start
Control panel
Administrative tools
Computer Management
Storage
Disc Management
Now you should be able to see your drive in the schematic shown below.

Right click on the drive and choose to change drive letter or paths. If there is no drive letter assigned to your external, assign one, if there already is a drive letter assigned to the drive, change it.

Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
Andrea

I don't think BYTECC sells complete external hard drives. But they do sell the enclosures. People buy the enclosures and install a hard drive in them and, now you have a working external hard drive. I have don't this before, but I have never used BYTECC before. You can download the drivers for there enclosures at there website:

http://www.byteccusa.com/

They have several different versions, Just pick the correct one, hopefully the enclosure has some markings or a sticker identifying the model.

Perhaps the gentleman at the store did not connect the power from the case to the drive itself.
