On most computer systems you can simply plug the hard drive in and it will automatically pop up with a notification that the computer is installing the drive for you. it should tell you when it has finished installing the drive and when the drive is ready to use. Usually this wont take longer then 3 mins or so.
If not, then the drive should of came with a cd of some sort with the information to install the drive on it. Pop in the disc and read the info that comes up on the computer for specific instructions to install that disk

You can take apart the casing carefully and you may need an adapter kit to make it fit into your computer im not sure if your dead drive uses ide or sata or if this uses ide or sata but you may need an adapter to change it if ones ide connection and ones sata but i have done this in the past and it works. highly not reccomended you can buy a cheap drive for around 20 dollars at local stores now.

You have to hook it up to the computer via usb port. Then you have to install the driver for it whch can most likely be found at the manufacturers website.

Burned boot to external hard drive, now external is local. Can I get it back to local? does I


when a hard drive dies , everything is lost and I mean everything
no recovery disc , files , folders e-mails , operating system --the lot
best move is to install a new sshd unit and change the bios to boot from the external hard drive
when that is done , you will have to down load all of the drivers for everything you use

Cant get my sumsung S2 external hard drive to work..my computer does not recognise it


If you are trying to use it on a computer with Windows XP or later installed it and it isn't automatically installing the drivers and finding the drive for you then there are typically only 2 possibilities of what's wrong.

1. Your external drive is probably Dead.

2. The USB port you are using is dead. Try plugging it in to a different USB port.

Before you write the drive off as DEAD, make sure you try plugging it in to a different computer and see if it works on the that computer.

I am unsure if you are trying to take a currently external drive and mount it internally, or if you are trying to make an internal drive into an external. Please clarify.

Windows 2000 cannot access USB drives for installation.
You need to replace the dead drive with a new IDE or PATA drive. That machine will not accept an SATA drive.

I am trying to install seagate goflex free agent external hardrive 500gb with linex ubuntu. How do I do this?


Once the drive is connected to your current PC, inser your UBUNTU disk, as you go through the installation procedure it will scan available drives and ask you whether you want to automatically install or manually install to a drive of your choice.

You have to select the latter and install to your external HDD. If you choose the auto option you could wipe your internal HDD and the operating system ............. be careful.

How much is a dvd-rom drive. model;GDR-3120L. X800475-016.S/N;016-7A291555, ROM VER,0079FL.


Around here, a brand-new "internal" CD/DVD reader/writer is about $40. Note that you can disassemble your current "external" drive/casing, remove the old, and presumably "dead", internal DVD-drive, and insert a brand-new one, in order to "refresh" your external DVD-drive.

Problem with installation of external dvd drive


I am also trying to get one of these drives working.  One "quirk" about this drive is that it actually uses two USB ports and a rechargeable battery when it is not connected to the AC adapter.  Why?  Because it draws a lot of current - each USB port on a laptop can supply a limited amount of current.  Using two USB ports allows the drive to draw the amount of current it needs.  So I would suggest using two USB cables.  Weird huh?
You might be able to get away with using just one USB cable if you have the AC adapter connected.

Won't Boot


It appears your hard drive's MBR is wrecked.

Buy another hard drive.
Buy an external hard drive enclosure.
Replace the current bad hard drive with the new hard drive
Use your restore CD to reinstall your OS.
Put the bad hard drive in the external hard drive enclosure and acces it after your have installed the new OS.
Hopefully the MBR on your old drive is bad but you can access the data. It may also be that the hard drive is dead and you would have to send it to a data recovery service to recover it.

External hard drive


1) what are the operating systems on the old (dead) and target systems?

2) Try it on a second working system?

3) This sounds like an OS related problem (if it's not a dead hard drive problem). If you're running Windows, the newsgroups/forums run by Microsoft are actually pretty good. E.g. if you're using WinXP, try
microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics or
microsoft.public.windowsxp.hardware
They can give you help in diagnosing the problem.
