You do not need a driver for the drive and the adapter should show the drive in my computer or in disk management.
If the adapter has it own power supply to get power to the 2.5" drive it should work. You should also set the jumper on the 2.5" to slave. And most of all connect it directly to a usb port on your computer and not to hub.

I need to boot Win7 by USB flash Drive created by a 2.5"FF SATA drive.


If you can tell your BIOS to use USB as the first boot device and the USB is from an ISO of Win7, it should work but your laptop won't be happy as the drivers may be wrong.

How to remove an Existing Wireless Profile (XP, VIsta, Win7)


When we connect to a wireless network, a "profile" is saved so that, in the future, the Wireless Network Adapter will connect automatically to the network if it is available. These profiles are saved and used by Windows even if you changed the settings on your wireless router causing connection problems. You need to delete these profiles to allow Windows to create a new one that is compatible to the new settings of the router. <br /> <br /> To delete an Existing Wireless Network Profile: <br /> In Windows XP, if you're using "Wireless Zero Configuration" to manage your wireless networking, go into the Network Connections folder ("Start &gt; Run", type ncpa.cpl and click OK), right click the Wireless Network Connection, select Properties and then the Wireless Networks tab, where you can highlight and then "Remove" an existing profile. <br /> <br /> <br /> <img src="iantechson_3.jpg" /><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> If you're using third-party software provided with the wireless adapter, there should be a similar option to remove an existing profile. <br /> <br /> In Vista or Win7, right click "Network" (My Network Places) and select Properties. Click the link at the left to "Manage Wireless Networks" then, in the next window, highlight the "Network" to delete and click the "Remove" button. <br /> <br /> <br /> <img src="iantechson_4.jpg" /><br />

How to connect belkin numeric keypad to iMac


Plug it in to a USB port.

If the particular keypad does not have a USB connector, there are adapters from PS2, serial, and ADB to USB available.

If the device is so old that it needs adaptation to USB, you might find that the original driver software no longer works. In that case, I highly recommend USB Overdrive (http://www.usboverdrive.com/USBOverdrive/News.html) 1999 2014 Alessandro Levi Montalcini as a sane way to manage USB input devices.

Laptop SATA drive not working


You cannot take a hard drive out of your faulty HP laptop and insert it into any laptop and expect it to run/boot up. When Windows is installed on a laptop, it is configured with device drivers for that particular laptop and it wont work in another laptop with different devices.
Replace the Dell's hard drive back into its laptop and the Dell should function normally.
To recover data off the SATA Hitachi hard drive, connect this hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter and then plug this adapter with the Hitachi hard drive into the USB port of your Dell. The Dell will detect the Hitachi as an external Mass storage device. You can then open the various folders and files to back up your data onto the Dell laptop or USB memory stick.
If you want to, you can use the Hitachi hard disk as an USB external hard drive by installing it into an USB SATA hard drive enclosure.

Hi there I just dropped my Hitachi external hard drive while transferring some files from my laptop to it. It was dropped from the height of a dining table. After I hooked it up to the laptop again, it...


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

That's the problem of updating your computer's OS without verifying if your existing devices is compatible with win7 OS. For the meantime you need to hardwire your PC directly to the router if you wanted to get online. Just check their website from time to time if they have available drivers or I suggest buy another wireless adapter that's compatible with win7.
