My black calvary external hard drive won't turn on.
Would be great if the next time you also place the model number, because Cavalry makes dozens of different drives.
When the bleu light does not go on, you have to assume the drive is not getting power.
If the drive has only one cable, (small drives like 2,5 inch most of the time only have one cable) it could be the USB cable is defect and can't give through the 5 Volt coming from the computer USB connector. It also could be the 5 Volt supposed to be in the computer has gone.
If you have to connect an external power supply, with a small cable to the drive, I would check the power supply. A 5 Volt 2 A supply, with the round plug can't be that expensive.
If both don't work, it also could be inside the housing of the drive is something defect.
If you need to have the data on the drive, you always could but an universal USB connection for hard drives. I have one for IDE and E-SATA, in the box came a set power cables and a power supply, but that one was almost 50 dollar. There are cheaper ones on the net.
Be aware drives don't live forever and make sure you always have at least two backups. (that is more than one origin; and one back up)

Error message says I don't
It sounds like your network administrator has locked your ability to write to certain folders. If this is a home hard drive, the only way to fix this would be to completely reinstall windows. If it's a work computer, you need to talk to your IT Department.

CAUO37500 Lite's on but nobody
im not sure how bad your hard drive is but if it works on another computer
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
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
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,
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 also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
hope this helps also

Transfer between 2 External Drives
the best program for this file transfer is Director Opus 9 this can transfer 100gig in under 1hr as with windows transfer takes 6hrs.
As I do alot of video capture and my filse range from 400mb to 4gig in size and having to transfer 700 gig about would take forever and with this program quick and easy you also can transfer over lan or wirless net.

How do I change battery on Measuremeter Revolution Trumeter 5505E
5505E MEASUREMETER BATTERY CHANGE (3V CR-2032)
REMOVE WHEEL AND SHAFT BY GENTLY PULLING AXLE OUT OF UNIT.
DRILL OUT 7 PLASTIC HEADS WITH 3/16 DRILL BIT. (ABOUT 1\8 DEPTH)
SPLIT TWO SIDES OF CASE AND REMOVE HANDLE.
SLIDE OUT CLEAR PLASTIC CONTROL UNIT. PUSH DOWN ON BUTTONS AS YOU REMOVE SO AS NOT TO DAMAGE THEM.
PUSH DOWN SLIGHTLY TOWARD THE CASE ON LOCK TABS WHILE GENTLY PULLING CASE APART. START ON ONE END AND WORK YOUR WAY TO OTHER END. KEEP GASKET INTACT. OPEN CASE.
THERE IS A "Y" SHAPED RETAINER HOLDING IN THE BATTERY. WITH NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS, CAREFULLY SLIGHTLY SQUEEZE THE BOTTOM OF THE "Y" AND PULL UP GENTLY. YOU CAN NOW REMOVE THE BATTERY AND INSTALL THE NEW ONE. PUSH RETAINER DOWN TO LOCK BACK IN.
MAKE SURE GASKET IS IN PLACE AND PUT CASE BACK TOGETHER, MAKING SURE WHEEL ADAPTER IS IN PROPER PLACE. TURN ON AND TEST CONTROL UNIT AND TURN WHEEL ADAPTER TO MAKE SURE UNIT IS WORKING PROPERLY.
SLIDE CONTROL UNIT BACK IN BEING CAREFUL OF THE BUTTONS. RE-ASSEMBLE HANDLE AND PUT THE TWO SIDES OF THE CASE TOGETHER. I USED THREE PIECES OF ELECTRICAL TAPE TO HOLD CASE TOGETHER. ONE ON THE TOP BETWEEN THE TWO HOLES, ONE ON THE BOTTOM JUST ABOVE THE DISPLAY, AND ONE IN THE MIDDLE.
PUT THE PLASTIC PIECE IN THE HOLE AND LINE UP. MAKE SURE BOTH O-RINGS ARE ON THE AXLE SHAFT. GENTLY INSERT AXLE ALL THE WAY IN WHILE ROTATING IF NECESSARY.
I WAS SO HAPPY I HAD IT ALL BACK TOGETHER AND WORKING, I HADN'T TAKEN ANY PICTURES AND I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE TAKING IT ALL APART AGAIN. MIGHT ADD PICTURES LATER IF NEEDED. I HAD BEEN LOOKING FOR YEARS ON HOW TO CHANGE THE BATTERY, AND I FINALLY MADE UP MY MIND THAT I WAS GOING TO DO IT.
