Hi, i have a 9.1Gb SCSI hard disk drive that a friend gave 2 me.
Unfortunately it didn’t work it kept on stuttering so i opened up the drive and rotated the cylinders without touching the disk surface.
When i put the drive back together it span fine, but Windows will not see it, i tried 2 Fdisk the drive but it wasn’t seen in their either.
Could the problem b that i only have a scsi 2 card as opposed 2 a Ultra Wide SCSI. I know u can’t boot off a scsi 2 card but i normally boot off my IDE hdd anyway.
Have i ruined the drive by opening it and do i need a Ultra Wide card 2 Fdisk and format so that Windows can see it.
The drive is a Compaq 10k rpm model: hd0093172c. I went 2 compaq site 4 advice on installing the drive but they were as helpful as a blind guide dog.
