No proble i want connect hdd to usb port by cable interface


Most of the time, you will need a hard drive enclosure that will allow the IDE or SATA connection to USB connection. These enclosures will allow you to insert the drive in the housing which will offer the USB connection cable from the enclosure. Check Ebay or other vendors for external hard drive enclosures.

Below is a link to an ebay listing for External Hard Drive enclosures.

How can i make my seagate hard disk an usb hard


It is quite easy, do not worry.
You only need to bought and USB enclosure, here is a link to many products on ebay
http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=p0.m37.l1313&satitle=hard+drive+enclosure+usb&category0=

then you have to connect your hard drive inside the enclosure and the enclosure to your computer using the usb cable and that's it.
Just be carefull about the enclosure, I guess it is a Hard drive from a desktop, is in it? because some enclosure are for laptop's hard drive.
Also you need to know if your hard drive is SATA or IDE, IDE is the normal gray bus cable with fourty some pins, and the SATA it is a really small cable (I do not use technicims to not confuse you even more).

Also, there are some adapters from IDE/SATA to USB that you can buy in your local computer store (do not go to bestbuy, compusa, ... they only sell external hd), or also get it from ebay.
The only diference between the enclosure and the adapter is that the enclosure looks better :D, and the adapter is just a bunch of cables.

Want to buy an enclosure


it will all depend on the model of HDD you have, is it Sata or IDE(PATA)? based on that i suggest you buy the enclosure. actualy the converter is a very small device.. hence i suggest you not to spead alot on the enclosure. there are several good enclosures that are made in china. many offer warranty. so go fo one of those.

An external USB drive consists of tow parts:

a hard drive (usually a standard IDE or SATA drive), and

an enclosure

The enclosure is the box containing the drive. It also includes an interface to convert the data from the IDE or SATA interface on the drive to a USB (2) signal. Some enclosures include and internal power supply. The Freeagent has the power supply externally.

Hope that's what you mean.

3.5" Dynex USB 2.0 External Enclosure + Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM 500 GB HDD problem with computer recognizing the HDD and the enclosure


 If your running XP , go to control panal , Admin tools>Computer Management >Storage > Disk Management . Look for it there . If its there see if it says what file system . If none format it . If it isnt there then chack the jumper on the hard drive it self . It should be set to master or cable select .
