I did try the Hd on another computer but it did not recognise the new hardware and it did not show up on the driver list.
I think I will just bite the bullet and take the hd to a techo and see if they can put the drive into another case or something like that.
Wish me luck. I appreciate you support. Thank you.
[QUOTE=mciahel;2504127]Hi,have you already tried the drive with another computer?
If there is the same issue, you may try dismantling that unit and try the drive internally. This would rule out a bad USB/IDE/Sata interface (and of course void the warranty. But I guess you don’t mind about warranty if you can access your data).
