Have the serial number of your drive to hand and they'll send you a replacement powersupply out to an address you specify within 5 to 7 working days FREE OF CHARGE.

I need to know what power supply is needed for my C2 HD 1037 external hard drive.


Hi,

I would start by contacting them on their website.
I don't see anywhere where you can but just the power supply but it wouldn't hurt to ask them about it.

I Have a old G4 tower/400GHZ, Hard drives blown and cant seem to find one anywhere. Quantum 10GB 3.5 series fireball plus


Hi Henry,

You can replace that hard drive with any 3.5" EIDE hard drive of any capacity. Here's a link on Amazon for an 80 GB for about $30: >> Click Here <<

If you want to search for other drives, use the search term: 3.5" EIDE hard drive

The most trusted brands on the market are currently Seagate and Western Digital.

Hope this helps!

Websites are in symbols &arabic looking letters, not readable!


If you're using Safari, go to the Appearance Preference area and choose one of the "Western" encodings. The top one is likely the best. (Latin?)

Imac powerpc g4 will not shut down or restart properly and will not recognize external hard drive


1. Press the power key and immediately press and hold shift-option-p-r until you hear a second startup ****. (This resets the parameter RAM).
2. Press the power key and immediately press and hold command-S. The screen should go black and show a verbose listing of the boot process in white type. When it stops, you will see a flashing cursor at the end. Type the following: fsck -f, then return. This will start a check of the file system, and the fsck program will attempt to repair any errors found. Wait until the program displays the results (it can take a while if you have many files). Post your results here. If it finds errors and corrects them, your problem may be solved.
3. (Don't do this unless the file system comes up OK and you are still having problems.) With the computer off, press and hold Shift-Cntrl-Option+Power for 5 seconds, then press the power key. This should reset the power management unit.

I have a mini mac and an external Rock Mobile Disk. It flashed red and green constantly and my computer cannot find it. I have changed computers( another mini) and ubs cords. Rich


Make sure the cable is fitted securely at both ends. Check to see if another usb device works on the same port. If the drive uses a "Y" usb cord (one usb into the drive and two into the laptop) Make sure the replacement cord you use to test is a "Y" cord as well. Open Applications>Utilities>Disk Utility. Check to see if a second hard drive is listed on the left hand side. Is the drive mounted? If not then select it and click the mount button at the top. If there isn't a second hard drive listed you could try removing the hard drive that is inside the case and hook it up to a "IDE/SATA to USB" hard drive adapter and plug it in. Instructions on where to find and how to use these adapters can be found on google. Sometimes the electronics inside the case can go bad and using another case or adapter with the hard drive can make a difference.

Installing 2nd hard drive. is a ultra ata 200Gb frive ok? if so were can I find or do you know the jumper settings? Thanks!! Greg


NO, this machine will only support SATA (Serial ATA) drives with out the addition of an adapter of some sort. The machine has internal slots for a total of four 3.5" SATA drives on "sleds" This is a difficult configuration to use an adapter of some sort with, I would not recommend attempting to use an ATA drive internally. You can get a 1394B (Firewire 800) or USB external case for your drive and use it that way.

Trying to install Olympus Digital wave recorder software on new Imac


Mac OS-X should recognize the camera without having to install software.  Plug the camera into the USB port and turn it on.  It should appear on the desktop as an external hard drive.  It may also start iPhoto up in import mode.  You can also import photos by selecting "Add to Library" from the drop down menu.

Maxtor one touch III 300GB making clicking sound and wont mount


You aren't going to like my answer but unfortunately the truth stings sometimes. Your hard drive has failed. The actual hardware mechanisms have failed. The clicking noise you are describing is the death rattle and is usually "stiction". When you hear that sound you can pretty much hang it up. If this is critical data the first thing you want to do is turn it off and let a professional recover it. Each subsequent attempt at retrieving the data lessens the chance you will be able to. Many people try to skimp and take it to the cheapest place only to have them irrecoverably damage it. I have seen and used some radical recovery techniques over the years that may resuscitate it long enough for you to move the data over if you are willing to take the risks. Different techniques include: Freeze it then try and mount it, heat it with a hair dryer then try and mount it, drop it from 4 or 5 feet onto concrete (or bang it with a hammer) and then try and mount it. Steam up a closed door bathroom (works as a poor man's substitute to a clean room facility) and swap the platters with another working drive of same model.
I used to think all drive brands were pretty much equal in reliability, after having 5 Maxtor drives fail within 12 months of purchase in one of the departments at work, I began paying attention and I can say unequivocally in my personal experience this brand is completely unreliable. I administer over 125 machines and when one has drive failure in it, I already know before I pull the cover what kind of drive is going to be in there. I stopped buying this brand 3 years ago and will never buy them again, they are now owned by Seagate which oddly makes the best drives but the acquisition didn't seem to help Maxtor's failure rates. Lacie uses Maxtor in their products so I won't touch them either, had 3 separate Lacie Terabyte Externals fail within 12 months of purchase and when I opened them up, of course they were Maxtor.
I have high regards (and long term reliability) for the other manufacturers... Seagate, Western Digital, Hitachi, Fujitsu, IBM, etc...
