did you connect the power?
Hi guys, So far I almost have everything for my car PC. And I ordered a used laptop hard drive WD 60GB 5400 for $63.00 from ebay. and I ordered a cable from mp3car, but when I plug it in, it seem likes not working Then I tried to plug on the computer I am using it right now, and it's still doesn't work either? Is my hd dead ? thanks
Also, is that hard drive require any software to install it ? thanks I am using windows XP
here is a 2.5'' hard drive and the cable
Plug it in to your computer and boot into Windows XP. Go to Start menu, Run, and type 'diskmgmt.msc' and hit enter.
Do you see the drive listed? If it's listed but doesn't show in My Computer, right click on the partitions listed for the disk and either format, if needed, or just assign it an appropriate drive letter.
thanks for the remind, I connect the power thingy and it's working now, but I got 1 more problem, at the time I am trying to install a windows XP, So I set the first boot is CD-room. then it took me to installing windows page after like 2 mins, everything loaded up, now it's say "windows is starting up" and it's just stopped there then the whole system is automatic shut down, I tried many times but it's still the same. need help plz...thanks....Originally Posted by Scouse Monkey
