Please supply a better example when the member is either not following directions or not telling us they did. Ok I just figured out what the deal was in my case. The hard drive still spins so I doubt it is broken. I plugged in my Western Digital external hard drive wdxms model code and everything worked fine, I was able to transfer files with no problem – until Windows 7 asked me if i want to do a disk check for errors on my drive. On the longer USB male parts it prevents the prongs from clicking into those square holes. I compared it to another USB flash drive that I have and that works with the cable. It’s possible that the estension cord isn’t thick enough to carry the current the HDD needs.
