You can buy an adaptor that will connect your hard drive to a pc.
Ribbon cable from your secondary drive on pc goes into the adapator. Adaptor also coonects to laptop harddrive.
You also need to change from being a master driveto be a slave drive . see linkbelow.

Hi, looks like your usb drive has died. Try it on another pc / laptop first. If it still does not work, you will need to purchase drive data reader while will allow you to access the data. Most pc stores carry them. Cost about 50 euros. Best of luck.

Hi, I have one IBM Travelstar USB 2.0 external hard, suddenly now it is not deducting and the light which is there in USB device, some time it is green and red alternatively.. Pls help to resolve this...


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps

Connect external hard disk IBM travel star 80GB USB port 2


Unless it's windows 98 you don't need a driver. If your computer can't see it, it's probably broken. Try plugging it in to another computer and see if it can see it
