You may just have the drive upside-down.
flip it over and it should fit...
Unless of course you got the SATA rocketfish, because your drive is PATA (ATA-6)
this is actually more likely the case!

Testimonial: "Thanks I will try that. I have the Pata rocket fish but I was afraid maybe the hard drive was 1.8 instead of 2.5. Thank you for your speedy response "

I have a Toshiba MK 8825AS taken from a HP NX5000 laptop. Is there a cable that will allow this to be connected to an desktop, either IDE or SATA? I need to access the data on the drive. Thanks


Yes, go to Tirgerdirect.com, and look for a hard drive enclosure. Your Hard drive fits inside and it will then plug into a USB port. You need to order one that fits the drive you have, so you need to know size and type of hook up. I use one for my old laptop HD's.

Seagate 120 gig HD in Dynex enclosure not recognized by XP system


Ok, you didn't say if the drive had data or not? Anyway, if it is a drive with no data etc, you will first need to Initialize, & Format the drive before use. Is there any way you can connect it up to an "Internal" or "External" SATA port, & "See" if the drive is recognized, then at least you know the drive is OK.. Also try another USB port if available. If you know it is OK, then go to device manager and Uninstall the entire USB layer, reboot, it will re-install the USB again, with default settings, it NOW may be "Seen".

I have a motherboard that has only has one ide conncetions


what you should do is make the 300 gig as second drive and your primary drive is the 80 gig so that you can view and back-up the contents inside it. If you going to install a new copy of Operating system that would be in the 80 gig so that you don't need to format your 300 gig and make it as second drive. Hope this could help you..Thanks..

HARD DRIVE ENCLOSURE RECOGNITION BY MY PC PROBLEM


Had the same problem today. I finally noticed that the pin bay on the enclosure was large enough to allow the pins to be offset by one pin set. The open pins were hidden by wires. Once I carefully aligned the pins, everything worked fine.

Simpletech pininfarina problem


It appears that this is happening a lot with external drives. Inside most of them is just a regular internal drive. In my case I simply removed the drive from the external enclosure (a SimpleTech 160 Gig) and installed it in my PC, where it works like a charm. Most people who have this problem go out and buy a replacement generic external drive enclosure for about $30.00.
