1 Answer

Hdd won't go into right size hdd enclosure case

I bought a i rocks ir-9200 hdd enclosure for my 2.5" hitachi hdd drive in my dead laptop. i have come to find that the connector on the hdd doesn't match up with the connector for the hdd enclosure. on the enclosure, the connector is a 44 pin female jack, but the connector on the hdd isn't even pins. its a male slot thingy, i dont know how to describe it. its two slots (male end), one longer than the other. is there some special hdd enclosure that i have to buy to make this work or am i just out of luck?

    Make sure to keep the original sheet metal "sleeve" screwed onto the hdd. The sleeve is part of the laptop, not part of the hdd. I discovered it when I I tried to install an hdd in an external enclosure which wouldn't fit it.

My Toshiba 1Tb External Hard drive Light Isn't coming on!


It sounds like the usb port on the drive itself is shot. You can actually take apart the case and pull just the harddrive out and use a hotswap usb harddrive reader and get to your files again

I want a converter for Hitachi HTS541612J9SA00 120 GB SATA Hard Drive to usb do you know wich one I need..?


You need a 2.5" inch SATA to USB external harddrive enclosure.

since its a laptop hard drive you need a small case.
for example this one http://www.amazon.com/2-5-SATA-HDD-Enclosure-Black/dp/B0018TCB0O

there are few thing you ahve to keep in mind

there are two type of hard disk
1. IDE
2. SATA

As per your hdd capacity it should of IDE type.

Now there are two IDE slots on motherboard. One is Primary and other is Secondary

You can fix two hdd with one IDE Slot that mean you can fix up upto faour IDE hdd at a time

Now again there are Primary master and Primary Slave

and

Secondary Master and Secondary Slave

Now You have to examine what was the location of previous hdd
1 Primary Master
2 Primary Slave
3 Secondary Master
4 Secondary Slave.

Now you have to make a HDD master or Slave.

just in between data cable connector and power cable connector there is a jumper. that specify the master or slave. do reply me if it works well thanks

HDD from dropped laptop


Could it be a power issue? Some older laptop HDs need more power than one USB port can provide and won't spin up properly. If you have a cable with your HD enclosure which had two USB connectors on the end, make sure you plug both into ports on your laptop.

When they don't spin up correctly, you tend to hear them clicking as they try to spin & then cut out. Have a listen to it when you plug it in & see what you can hear.
