Great forum - found answers to most of the questions i had about putting together an external HD enclosure.
I do have a question about getting windows XP to recognize the external HD as removable as opposed to just a "hard drive" with a volume letter. Is it possible to have it recognized under the removable storage in 'my computer' or is it the norm for it to be under the 'hard drive'. Am i just being picky because the drive works ok & can connect/reconnect to one computer...seems to work ok (although i haven't tried using it on a different computer). Any thoughts?
specs: WD 120 gig HD w/8 meg cache, ULTRA compact 3.5" enclosure.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
