There are no controll over the hard drive fan. some people choose not to have them. i try not to have too many fans simply because it builds the level of noise. to remove the fans, simply open the side of your computer and pull the plug coming from the fan to your motherboard. you can leave it screwed into your computer just incase you feel like plugging it back in at a later date.

hope this helps :)

Buy a can of compressed air, open up your computer case (usually a panel on the left side slides off with two screws on the back) and blow all the dirt and dust out. Also make sure that there is adequate ventilation around the tower. 4 inches on each side and 6 inches on the back should be good.

I have a Mad Dog Mulltimedia external usb floppy dsrive. It does not work on my windows 7 computer. Can you help me find a driver or whatever I need? Virginia Wilbur


Mad Dog is, unfortunately, out of business by all indications and there is no support available from them. I suspect that Windows 7 will not have a driver that is compatible with the enclosure's interface. Depending upon what brand/model of actual hard drive is inside the enclosure (Western Digital, Seagate, whatever) you may be able to dismantle the enclosure, remove the actual disk drive, and use it in another enclosure with an up-to-date interface. That is only a suggestion...it would require a certain amount of mechanical expertise and a good phillips screwdriver ;-)

Ok again im missing the network cable for my mad dog external drive. but i do not know what it looks like please help


It's an USB cable- usually you can use one like connects to a printer- but sometimes it would use the mini usb connector like cellphones and portable hard drives use- unfortunately the only information I was able to dig referred to an old (2004 era) CNET review

My Mad Dog external hard drive does not show up as a drive. How do I get this to show so I can access my information.


Connect it to a different computer, to see if the device is working at all.

If not, and if the Mad Dog is still under warranty, then exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

Otherwise, disassemble the casing, remove the disk-drive,
and connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the disk-drive is OK. This would imply that the USB-to-disk-drive interface inside the casing is the problem.

I have a Mad Dog hard drive enclosure that I did have a Western Digital WD400 hard drive in. Now I need to recover some data from a Western Digital WD1600. The ribbin that connected to the hard drive is...


It would cost just as much to purchase a "SERILLEL" adapter as it would cost to purchase another "empty" external hard-drive case that has support for the newer-style 'SATA' hard-drive.

If you have a newer desktop-computer, you probably have an unused SATA port on your motherboard, and an unused SATA power-connector. Temporarily connect the SATA drive to your motherboard, and do the recovery.

I'm pretty sure you can't download games to the hard drive. Actually, i'm pretty sure you can't use a hard drive with a Wii.. how does this drive connect? You probably don't need a hard drive, games save and download oto the Wii console itself, and you can put an SD Memory card in it if you really need to.
