  • laptop HD on a USB external 3.5

    I bought a 3.5 to 2.5 converter (standard to laptop har ddrive converter),

    I wanted to copy files to it using my external enclosure for my 3.5" drive, it's won't spin up or anything, I checked the 5v line and it's good.

    anyone? is it just not compatable?

    Buy a external for 2.5"... is like $15 in target direct last time I checked.

    But anyway that is weird cus I got the kit to use it has an a ext HD and it work fine. (using the PSU unit of one of those 3.5" HD enclosure)

    Thanatos.

      Most of the 2.5 to 3.5 adaptors will plug into the lappy hard drive either way. Did you check the thing and make sure pin 1 is correct?

        Yes, that is a good advice cus in HD if you connect the IDE cable backwards it won't turn on.
