Is it possible for two laptops to transfer information to each if they are close to each other but not connected? 

by on June 21, 2013

Q: My friend and I had an argument about this. He said if you leave a laptop next to another laptop (or a hard drive next to another hard drive) that they could potentially transfer some data from one to the other even if they are not connected to each other or even turned on. I said that is impossible, but I couldn’t explain it because I really don’t know how data transfer works. I can’t prove it. Can someone explain how and why this is impossible so he can shut up about it?

How come I cannot see my external hard drive in my Windows 7 Explorer window? 

by on February 21, 2013

Q: Hi all

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I am trying to get the data from my sister’s HD onto my computer using a Rosewill SATA to USB cable. The HD is a Seagate Barracuda 7200.11.

When I connect the usb cable I get the connecting sound and a window saying that the USB device is ready to use, but the drive doesn’t show up in windows explorer. I have tried to reconnect a few times and have restarted the computer with the usb cable connected.

The disk shows up as unknown “Disk 1” under the disk management tool and gives an option to initialize the disk, but I’m guessing this will erase or at least hide the data on it.

Does anyone have any advice on how to get this setup working??

Many thanks
Chris
