HDD Connection through USB? Tags: Hard Drives SSD Connection Storage Product Last response: September 23, 2012 2:12 AM in Storage Share samwow412 September 22, 2012 11:03:10 PM When I reinstalled my windows to my SSD, I go and try to plug in my old HDD as well but it blue screens on the Windows Starting screen every time.. The only way I can get it to start up is if the SSD is the only drive plugged in, and yes i'm selecting to boot from the SSD when I have both drives in. Would I be able to buy a Sata to USB coord or something to acess and reformat my HDD while windows is runninng? I dont know what else to do, I dont have any info on the HDD and as far as I know it's completely empty aside from a partition maybe. I also tried booting in safe mode while both drives were plugged in and same deal, blue screen on windows startup.

What is one of those? Do you just put the HDD in and it hooks up with the USB coord? Does it feed the hDD power as well? I have no idea why my computer wont boot if I have my HDD hooked up through SATA, considering I'm selecting the SSD as the boot drive. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
