Question about SanMax 1 Bay (HD338CB) FireWire (IEEE 1394), USB 2.0 External Drive Case

Transferring data from a sanmax to my laptop w/vista premium

I borrowed my nephew's sanmax portable harddrive to transfer some of his programs onto my laptop. He left for Europe before I could find out how to transfer the data. I have no idea what to do. Nothing comes up that says download or transfer or anything like that. Can you help me figure this out? I certainly don't want to mess anything up. My operating system is Vista premium. Thanks for any help, Lindy

Lindy. Go to my computer on your computer and click on the harddrive. Then search within to find the programs you want.

It is possible the drive is pulling more power than the enclose can handle. Also it is possible that there is a problem with the hard drive controller card as well.

Also clarify you are connecting a standard hard drive and not a notebook drive correct. If this is a standard drive I would recommend you try to connect the drive directly to your computers IDE controller to see if the drive will work. If it does not most likely there is a problem with the drives controller card.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

If the drive is not showing in My Computer then most likely the drive letter that it wants to assign to is already assigned to another device. The link below will show you how to change the drive letter on the device.

I borrowed a MadDog portable hard disc read but Windows won't see


If Windows does not detect the hard-drive, then the electronics on the hard-drive are "dead", and only a professional "Data Recovery Service" should be retained to pull data from the hard-drive.

P.S. Be sure that the jumper on the hard-drive is set to 'MASTER', not to 'SLAVE', not to 'CABLE SELECT'.

USB Connection Issues


Cat this is your earlier problem reworded - I can see now that this is a dual device. If you can use it that way in Firewire mode leave it at that. However - is it possible that this is a 'switchable mode device and you have not discovered the secret of how to. If there is anything like a manual with this check it thoroughly or get into the makers tech support team

You say have a SanMax HD-338-CB USB/Firewire External HD with a 160MB drive. You then say sometimes I have to reboot Windows XP pro 2 or 3 time before I see the drive using a USB 2.0 connection. Fire wire is a different system with a different connector style- so it should not be in a USB port or a USB connector should not be in a Firewire device. Get you device and connections sorted The desktop display simply puts up a device it will not differentiate which USB or Firewire
