External Hard Disk Case

by wildbird / October 20, 2006 5:15 AM PDT

I have two external hard disk cses one of them is an old Argosy PCMCIA Case for notebook hard disk and the another one is USB 2 Case. I have many old notebook hard disks, two of them when I use the Argosy PCMCIA case my computer detects the external hard disk and have no problems. But when I use the USB 2 Case my computer does not detect the external hard disk.These two hard disks I reformated and did check disk too and found nothing wrong.

I am looking for your help.

Thanks in advanced.

Hello V,

Thank you for giving me the clue. One of the USB 2.0 Drives does not have any "drives powered" now I found that this is the one I have problem with my hard disk. The other drives with power DC 5V has no problem.
