    Thanks for the suggestion. Tried both. Does yours work?

    I have the same problem but am trying to get my Nexxtech NHDE 35 enclosure to work with an XP desktop. The drivers are not compatible as I have found out that they only support up to Win 2000. Does anybody know how to get drivers for this enclosure? P.S. Circuit City would not take it back as I was outside their 30 day window when I tried to get an exchange for an enclosure that was XP compatible.

Just bought one myself yesterday... Don't know if this is the problem, but the sales person said that NHDE-35 is for desktops and the NHDE-25 is for laptops. Hope this helps.

Hi there,

The could be only two reasons for that problem with enclosure or hd. You need first figure out which one is the problem.
Plug the HD directly to the computer and see if computer can recognize it. If computer can recognize HD and you can access it then the problem with enclosure and something got burned when power got back. If you the enclosure still under warranty try to get replacement of if you electronic tinker you might try to fix it. If computer not able to recongnize HD and you can't access it from WIN then HD got fried. I would not recommend to store any important data on HD there is always a chance it will fail at some point.

Cheers, DS

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".

Hard Drive not mounting


Check the jumper on each hard-drive.

My guess is that the WD drive has the jumper in the "correct" position, for mounting inside an external case, while the other drives have their jumper set to an "incorrect" position.

Set the jumper to MA(ster), not to SL(ave), nor to C(able)S(elect).

Computer not recognizing it


if as you say its working fine is pc accessing drive via usb and have you set the jumper to master as most external enclosures work on the device being master if you can see the hdd on pc then the laptop needs to have windows re-installed but if the pc is not showing hdd then goto control pannel and Administrative Tools and Computer Management and then Disk Management if showing here then select unallacated drive and properties and set active. then turn of drive then turn back on and see if comes up in my computer. only do laptop if pc has hdd viewing in my computer. hope all goes well
