Its your house. Take your PC to your friends house and try it
his house is quite far away , and i only have bike plus system is quite heavy
that wont work. the port is going to be limited to 500mA, shared between all the devices. That will only help if the hub has external power.
Oh then what should i do?
get a powered hub, or a PCI USB card. the powered hub will likely be more convenient.
at this stage, its either the USB controllers on your motherboard are crap - or something you've missed telling us.
a bad USB cable that you use and the other systems dont, faulty power in your house that could be messing with the PSU somehow, a broken USB port on the motherboard that might be shorting, etc.
what kind of info could i have missed, can you tell , so that i can provide you that info .
HDD does not boot even with a USB HUB, atleast it was detected with normal port
are you using the USB port directly on the motherboard or from a header port such as a PCI mount or a case port? You are having a power issue because it works fine on your friends machine. If you have a Wall wart that came with the drive use it.
i am using direct ports on my motherboards, nothing else came with the drive.
can you give the specific model of it please?
Seagate expansion drive Model no. is st910004exm101.
it was written few pages back though
could be related to this here
my drive works with other computers, but hates my computer
id honestly recommend going here http://www.seagate.com/search/?keyword=st910004exm101 there are several results pertaining to that drive even issues with it. Might point you in the right direction.
i think the cables shown in this article might work, what do you guys think?
that might help, be cheaper than replacing the drive actually.
yeah, try one of those.
you said you tried with a hub - was it powered or not?
if it wasnt powered, you wasted your time testing it. if it WAS powered, then either the drives faulty, or your mobo has some serious USB issues.
but i dont know where to get one, not availablein my local retail store
it wasnt powered, it takes power from usb cable, guess i wasted my time
yes if there isnt a secondary cable going to that hub, it isnt powered.
normally powered devices have a Wall wart or a secondary USB plug in, like the cable u posted earlier
on monday i will go to main market , to get that cable, hopefully that works
That cable did not work
It is even worse than normal cable
theoretically, that shouldnt be possible. must be a faulty cable.
your only other option is a powered hub, or replacing hardware in the PC (most likely motherboard)
na didnt work with cable,
sorry for such a late reply, i by mistake formatted my internal, was a mess, recovered everything
is there any other solution except buying or replacing
Have you installed the latest chipset drivers for your rig? Also is Windows throwing any errors in the event viewer?
