Question about Apricorn DriveWire IDE/PATA/SATA to USB Adapter (ADW-USB-KIT) Hard Drive

1 Answer

I recently use the Apricorn Drivewire to upgrade my Toshiba M35x- series Win-XP laptop from it's stock 40gb HDD to a Western Digital Scorpio Blue 320GB HDD. I preset it to install 2 partitions at the 100GB and 200GB marks respectively but the only result I got from the new "cloned" drive is it registering as a 40gb hard drive. Now I have a 320GB drive that only registers as a 40gb HDD. Please Advise. Tosh laptopper

    Jeff you appear to be steering me in the right direction. Much thanks. the only thing is that I've been getting error message everytime I try to open New Partition option. Says MMC snap-in has internal error needs to restart Disk Management. Please Advise.

  • phenomprod Nov 09, 2010

    The results I original got in this order is [42.37GB unallocated] [ (C:) 38.84GB Healthy (System) ] [218.27GB unallocated]
    [ (D:) DVD/CD drive]

    When I try to make a change the program crashes, sends error message to Microsoft then self-closes.
    Please Advise. Thx

How do I remove write protection from a DVD-RW?


Your M35X-S1143 model - assuming it still has the stock drive - has an DVD / CD-RW optical drive - i.e. it will write only to CD's but not DVD's. If you try to burn a DVD, it'll tell you that the disc is write protected (when in fact, the drive doesn't even know how to write to a DVD disc.); if you go ahead and burn a CD, you will not encounter the write protection warnings.

I have a Toshiba A45-S121 laptop. I upgraded my hard drive from a 40GB hard drive to a 320GB Western Digital. Loaded Windows XP and formated drive in FPTS format. The computer rebooted to the hard drive...


Best possible solution put back your 40GB and try to get an external casing for your 320GB to see if it works.And try windows on NTFS instead of FPTS, so reformat your 320GB and install the Windows XP again.
I hope this solution is helpful.
