Using Ghost 9 - USB hard drive locks up - currently not seen by OS
Posted on 2004-11-02
I purchased a new hard drive (HD) to replace the smaller one in my laptop. I attached the new HD via a USB port to my laptop.
I after I made several selections about how I want the data copied to the new HD, I told Ghost to Make a Copy of the old HD to the new HD.
It ran for about three hours nothing was moving no lights were flickering. I asked Ghost to cancel the operation. Another hour passed and still nothing.
At this point I shutdown my laptop. I was able to bring up my laptop without any problems. The heartbreaker was I could no longer see the new HD attached to my USB port.
I tried using the Device Manager to located the new drive. It does not see it. The driver is installed but the OS does not see the new HD.
I attached the new HD to another computer via USB. The system does not recognize the device. The computer that I attached the HD to does not attempt to install the driver.
What should I do?
Any suggestions or comments are welcome!
