Happy Thanksgiving, to ALL my US Friends!

Why??

The link I provided was from Amazon UK. But they appear to be the same thing, just different USB cable.

Yes, I know. Unfortunately not all the sellers deliver items to a small place, even though in the EU. Thank you. I'll suggest that one then.

You mean one of those links I posted above? Which one would you suggest?
??? Oops! Sorry. I could have sworn I included the link.

I meant one of these.

OUPS! No sellers are currently delivering this item here...

Is this something similar?

Thanks, Digerati.

I'd go with something like this adapter. At least then it could be used with current SATA drives too.

You mean one of those links I posted above? Which one would you suggest?

That said, if the old drive died, there is nothing to suggest any adapter or enclosure will do any good. Clearly, if these were so valuable, she should have had multiple copies on different drives because "all" drives will fail - eventually.

Sometimes you have to get through this to learn... We hope that the disk is OK. If not, she will deal with it.

Hello, LzD friends.  :)

I have a dream problem.

Some weird/bad/unlucky incidents occurred to a friend of mine. Her external disk died suddenly. She only cares about hundreds of family photos saved in there. They are valuable for her, as she lost her father recently. She took the hard disk to a technician, who tried to recover the disk's content, but unfortunately without a result. Her only hope was an old HP laptop she had, but the laptop could not even start to log in Windows. So the technician took off the hard disk, only to discover that it was a very old model (he talked about PATA instead of SATA). He can't help her because he hasn't got something for it.

My question: Can an enclosure make the job, as for normal hard drives? Can we just order the proper case, connect it via usb cable with a computer and see what is inside the hard disk?

Two models I found in Amazon (I'm searching in Amazon.uk, as if I order from US items won't come in time and there will be also extra taxes):

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Storite-Technotech-Aluminum-External-Enclosure-Supports/dp/B079NWHQXH/ref=sr_1_11?keywords=case+for+PATA+external+disk&qid=1574878419&s=computers&sr=1-11

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Drive-Aluminum-External-Enclosure-Capacity/dp/B000XPS3U6/ref=sr_1_8?keywords=case+for+PATA+external+disk&qid=1574878419&s=computers&sr=1-8

Thank you!

Windows Movie Maker was my favorite video editor too, when I had Windows 7.

Now, with Windows 10, I'm using the Video Editor app, which I got from the Microsoft's store.

From the old movie ROCKIE:


The eye of the tiger


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpcJdMHQM3M

Risin' up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds 'till we take to the street
For the kill with the skill to survive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the dream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger

Risin' up, straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the dream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger

Edit note:  Reading the Pale Moon topic, it appears this may be the latest legacy version:  https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/releases?after=1.18.10

Thank you! I didn't thought that there were more pages and versions there.  :)

A question about ublock, although the topic is about Malwarebytes:

How can we add it in Pale Moon? I have it in my own computer, but I forgot how I did that, so I can use it in other computers with Pale Moon. My search leads to the Updater.

That said, the shredder is a lot more fun!

It is just a great WOW!!!!!!!! I've never seen such a thing before!!! 😮

What if drowning it in the water or passing above it with the car or just infect it with a virus?

It's not that difficult to replace them, but you have to be able to open the case

Well... you have to turn the computer into pieces and then find the little speakers hidden in the last layer of the box!

When I changed the hard disk it was much easier. It's difficult for me now to do such a thing. I'll use this external blue tooth speaker and I'll see for the future. It is a good computer, but time started to leave its signs on it. First the battery, then the dvd/cd case, now the speakers.

Is there much/any "noise" on a low volume?  Does the noise get louder/more noticeable as the volume goes up?  Crackling sounds during audio playback could be a sign of blown speakers.

Do you have headphones you can plug in?  If there is no noise present, that would indicate a speaker issue.  Speakers are a relatively simple and inexpensive repair.  If the problem is caused by the audio chipset you’d hear the crackling noise in both headphones and speakers.

Yes, the noise gets louder/more noticeable as the volume goes up.
No noise present with the headphones plugged in.
I plugged in an external speaker and everything is OK.

So, you think it is a speaker issue? How difficult/complicated would be if I changed it myself instead of giving it to a technician?

UPDATE:

The noise is like the sound being produced when a dvd/cd tries to load but it can't. Perhaps it has to do with the broken case/device? Just an hypothesis.
