There are no spare parts for it - if one has failed you will have to replace the entire case. A cheap one can be found here

What is the connection plug from Fujitsu mht2080ah to computer?


You can install the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case.
Then you can connect it to the USB port on your computer. The computer will see this as an external storage device, then you can copy the files off this hard disk to your computer.
By inserting the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter you can deleted unwanted files off the hard drive and use it for backups and data transfer from one computer to another computer.

The first thing to check would be the USB cable you're using - try a different one. If that makes a secure connection, you're set. If not, the problem is likely with the USB-IDE board that your external drive is using. You can open it up and re-seat the connection yourself, or remove the drive inside and connect it to your PC with a USB-IDE adapter (available on eBay, Amazon, etc.)

You can also contact MicroNet Technologies about warranty service, if your hard drive is within warranty period. They should be able to repair it for you without wiping your data. Here's their contact information:

My Apollo 250GB USB hard drive can't be detected


It should be in My Computer after you plug it in. If not, then go to control panel and search for new hardware. Click on system in control panel it should be listed under usb. Maybee it needs a new driver.

Flip the unit on its back and remove the battery.
Next remove the memory and hard drive.
In the memory area, you will find a lit. battery with a white 2 wire plug. Disconnect this plug and flip unit over.
Open the cover and hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
This will clear the BIOS and CMOS settings on the Laptop.
Flip the unit over and install the Hard drive and memory.
Next, plugin the battery connection.
Close unit up and plugin power connection.

Power up the 9000 and see if the keyboard is seen.

Note. You may have a defective or dammaged keyboard and may need to be replaced.
You can use a USB keyboard temp. About $20.00 USD at any Walmart
Hope this works for you.

OK enough guilt, being in an exturnal case and your problem, first thing to hope for is a bad connection. You should first replace the USB cord (in case of strech failure, now intermintant), if that doesnt work, open the exturnal drives case, and carefully remove, and replug in the cables and connections inside the case, usually a flat cable from the controller board (what the USB cable is plugged into) the other rend of it, is plugged into the hard drive, if it is not seated tightly and bottomed out in the jack, it could become intermintant,. Thats the good news, the bad news? If the fall was "just wrong" then your drive may have been physically damaged, and your data is lost unless it is worth enough for you to pay upwards of thousands of $$ for a professional data restorer to fix all.

My seagate free Agent exturnal hard drive


Hi, Sorry to hear you are having problems,
When you open your hard drive, is it locked ? Do you see a pencil with a line through it in the bottom left had corner ?
It could be that the drive has inproper permissions....
So, try this, click on the Hard drive icon (Please be sure it is the external drive, NOT YOUR STARTUP DISK ) then get info on the drive. In this info window, at the very bottom, you should see a check box allowing for: ignore ownership on this volume. Please click this box.
Now, try creating folders on the drive...
If this does not work, I highly recommend reformatting this Hard Drive, that is assuming there is no valuable information on it.
After reformatting it, it really should work porperly.

Hi-

Chances are these large memory hard drive should be plugin with a USB and adapter of its own since 320Gb is too big and needs power to be able to recognize. But if you find it defective you have a year warranty from the manufacturer, you can call them up for a replacement.

Hope this help. Thanks for using Fixya!
