E400 usb host capable of using external hd?

Can you connect a usb hard drive to the e400 with the usb host cable? If so, is there a possibility to use the drive in connection with a gps system attached? Is there something like a distributor to attach gps cable AND usb host cable at the same time?

As far as I know if you want to make this kind of connection I suppose that you need suitable driver for it. Sorry but there is no any known driver to me. In my opinion there are some another reasons that speaks against usage of HDD. First of all HDD need external power supply and secondly the HDD is very sensitive again agitation.

What is the difference between a external hard

External hard drives contain a power supply to operate a standard hard drive in a case. It usually connects to a USB port. Usb drives get their power from the wire that connects it to the USB port A regular internal hard drive gets it's power from the computer's power supply wiring. The data cable is either a flat ribbon cable or a 6 pin cable that connects directly to the mother board.

Cant find driver for SimpleTech 250gb external hd. Is it available?

Should not be necessary. It is recognized by the system automatically. Try connecting to another port, check the data cable and the connection to the unit, it may be corroded or loose.

guess you are using a USB port to for that.....
1 - check the cable that connects the HD to the USB port...change the cable and verify
2 - connect to another PC and check if it's ok there
3 - bring another ext HD from a friend and try conencting that....check if that's OK
4 - there could be a corruption in the HD that is preventing the PC from reading it

cardinal rule for USB....not a very dependent device specialy if connecting thru USB data cables....
solution
always use a good qty USB data cable compatible with USB2....as some cheap cables are only for USB1

Cannot open

1 of 2 possible problems. You have a bad USB cord or the controller card wentt out in the external drive. If cord works w/another peice of hardware, then it's controller card. To test if HD is bad, remove it from the case and connect it to your pc via SATA cable to mother board and use power from pc power supply. If you can access the HD here, just purchase a new external closure.Don't spend a lot of money, they're relitively inexpensive. If you don't have the necessary cabling, you might need to visit a local reair shop or friend that has the ability and cabling. Most all pc repair shops will check the HD out to see if its works and also carry the external HD cases.

I have a maxtor III usb 2.0 500 GB external hard drive. the light on the front goes out and works sometimes. when the light goes out the external drive gets disconnected . i checked for loose connections....

Possibly, the USB is not receiving current enough and occasionally it resets the USB interface. Try connecting it to another system, or to a powered USB host, and see what happens.
Another possibility (but you'd need to disassemble the external enclosure and connect directly the disk inside to a SMART-capable motherboard) is that the hard disk is developing a fault.

Problem with accessing my external hard drive

It's probably NOT the voltage, but the current available at a given USB port. You might try using a USB cable that has two "A" connectors on one end that connect to the computer, one for power and data, the other is just for extra power. The other end of the cable should have the appropriate connector for your external drive. By connecting the second "A" plug to the computer, you double the current available to the external drive.

New Maxtor 3200

Hi, This is a common problem with external storage. Based on your post/description: 1. Your laptop does not recognize the external hard drive via its USB connection - try on a different computer - if it is still a no go, then it's not a PC problem; 2. Try replacing the cable - again if a no go, so it's not an interface/cable problem; 3. That leaves you only with the PS3200 itself as the possible at fault. An external hardrive would consist of 2 main parts, the electronic board and the hard disk itself. The board seldom (if ever) fails. Its function is to provide conversion/interface from the SATA/IDE connectors of the HD to the out USB/Firewire. The HD more often than not fails. Most external storage uses a standard HD inside the enclosure. Your possible options: a. Claim warranty/replacement; b. Replace the HD only; c. Physically remove the HD and connect it directly inside a desktop either as IDE or SATA and run manufacturer's diagnostic and/or third party recovery software; d. Seek services of professional data recovery firms (if data/files are mission critical); Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

How to connect a IDE-to-USB cable to a 2.5 inch drive?

1) You will do no harm by reversing the connector, but the PC won't "see" the drive at that point (if your drive has an activity LED it will be permanently ON if the cable is reversed) 2) Most times the USB will have enough power to drive the HD all by itself, but if you are going through a hub that may not be the case. In that situation, plug the device directly into a USB port on the PC.
