I have a new computer (winxp). When I connect the hardisk 3.5'' to the winxp by connecting USB, it just make all other USB PORT to be dead (for example the USB Mouse) to be not functioning or not stable.
Is it the Power plug connecting 3.5 Hardisk make it not stable when connecting to the computer? (since 3.5 hardisk require AC POWER SOURCE)
Also, the data cannot be transferred from my computer to the hardisk 3.5'' easily? it just goes ERROR easily??
My first guess is that there is an electrical problem with your 3.5" hard drive. I would start by checking to see if it works on another computer first. If it causes similar issues, you then have to determine the value of the data on the drive. If it is worth $300 or more, I recommend getting it assessed by a data recovery lab...evaluations are usually free.
