...External Hard Drive (USB) recognizes hardware but not drives
I pulled a IBM Travelstar disk from a T21 (I know it works fine, the
problem on the laptop was with the motherboard). I connected it to a
Argosy HD260 external hard disk case (USB connection). On connecting to
an XP box, the system recognizes an IBM-DJSA-220 USB Device, but no
drive letter appear (the disk was used on Win2K, so I assume it is
NTFS, and has two partitions).
How can I see the two volumes on the disk to access the data?

I need a little advice please.
(Apologies in advance if I'm in the wrong place.)
I was shopping for an external storage device on Ebay,and I accidentally
bought an internal drive instead.(Dopey me realised my mistake 5 seconds
after I bid,& alas no one out bid me.As I don't want an unpaid strike,I had
to buy the damn thing.)
I was going to sell it back on Ebay after it arrives,but a little reading
revealed to me that you can turn an internal drive into a USB external drive
with a 3.5" hard drive case enclosure.
So I ask,can I convert the following:

I have recently bought a new Tiny Mediabook U64-3700+ of which I am
awaiting delivery. The one drawback on this system that may affect me
is the Fujitsu/Toshiba Hard Disk with minimum Ultra ATA/100 interface,
4200rpm speed, 12 ms Access time, 80GB capacity and 1MB Buffer. If I
bought an external drive with 7200rpm and connected it via a usb2
connection would this perform better?

I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I want to purchase a higher
capacity hard drive and have it replace my existing one. I would like
to make a bootable copy of my existing one by using my external USB
drive enclosure. My plan is to place the new drive in this enclosure
and use Powerquest Drive Image 7 to copy my existing drive to the new
one, then removing the existing with the new one
Will this work? I know Drive Image will let me dup from internal to
internal (primary to slave),but it's not clear whether I can use its
copy disk option to go to an external drive...firewire external drive vs internal ide drive???
I had a power outage a few days ago and lost the FAT tables to one of
my firewire external drives. But not all of them. I am not sure why
this happened, but a friend of mine tells me it is because I lost
power. So why didnt it happen to all of my extenal drives? AT ANY
RATE... I am over losing all of that data, but now I have come up with
this crazy idea that an internal drive would less prone to this type of
loss, so I want switch to using internal drives. My friend made it
sound as though this problem of mine stemmed from the fact that the
drive I did lose was an external firew...Startup from External Drive and Automatically Unmount Internal Drive
My SO has a PowerBook G4, a so-called TiBook. Because the internal drive is
insufficient to hold all of her applications and documents and such we
configured it with the intention that it would boot off of an external
Firewire drive that is much larger than the internal drive. The Startup Disk
is set to the external drive. All is working well with two exceptions....
a) Subsequent to a shut down a startup will occur on the internal drive and
not the designated startup drive.
b) An AppleScript initiated upon startup and which has a 60 second delay will
not eject the internal drive, but a...Using an internal hard drive as an external hard drive
I have 2 internal disks that I have taken out from a PC that has failed me
after 6 years of use. I now am using an HP notebook, and I need data from
these 2 disks that I wanted to copy to my laptop ... or possibly use these
2 disks as some sort of temporary storage.
In my previous work, we had some kind of caddy / container for hard disks,
you place the hard disk inside, and it has some minimal wirings to allow
you to plug-in power to the hard disk, and some cable to attach for the
data ( like the flat ribbon inside the PC ). However, I do not know what
this is called and therefore don't...iTunes import problem with internal drive but OK with external drive
I have been importing my CD collection, mostly with no problems. But,
when I tried importing one particular CD to iTunes using the internal
drive, it had many pops indicating areas of the disk that iTunes could
not read. I tried cleaning the disk and turning "error correction
coding" on in Preferences, but that did not help. Also, both before and
after the cleaning/changing Preferences, the import process was also
going very slowly (0.4-1.7x indicated, but sometimes making no progress
for 10 seconds). The disk had no obvious scratches or damage and had
been treated with kid gloves, b...CMD hard drives & internal ZIP and JAZ drives

Hi I just got an old IDE zip 100 drive. On the back, it's label for
the jumpers is split into 2 boxes, labelled "Not Drive A" and "Drive
A". Each box shows three different jumper settings for how to set the
drive to slave/master/cable.
So in other words, there's six jumper settings on the back. Three for
"Drive A" - master/slave/cable and three for "Not Drive A" -
master/slave/cable which are different.
What does "Drive A" or "Not Drive A" mean? I don't know which jumper
settings diagram is right...

No. However there is the usual disadvantage, namely a higher
probability of simultaneous failure.

Cuddly UI...Turn an internal iMac G3 hard drive into an external drive?
I am hopelessly ignorant when it comes to hardware... I have a
perfectly good 40gig hard drive in my G3 iMac going to waste, while I'm
running out of room on my G5 iMac. Is there any way to turn my G3's
internal drive into an external drive for my G5? I've read about
enclosures that do this in general, but is there one that would work
for this specific purpose (i.e. Mac compatible, and for the G3's hard
disk, more specifically)? I'd appreciate any advice anyone might have!
Also, I have no idea what 'size' the G3's drive is (for example 3.5",
...Premade external hard drive or internal hard drive with enclosure?
My WD mybook external hardrive died, and now i need a new one for my
laptop (which has th elaptop firewire conneciton, which isn't the same
as the pc firewire connection that most external harddrives come with,
thus need to use usb)
So I'm thinking of getting the following toshiba 320 gb external ( see
link below). However I have also been considering getting a regular
internal harddrive and enclosure. would this be better in terms of
reliability and speed? How difficult is this to set up? If this is
better any recommendations for a 300-500 gb drive and enclosure?
