Unaccessible Hard Drive
Posted on 2005-03-28
I have an 80 gig Maxtor hard drive that I can not gain access to. BIOS recognizes the drive, Device Manager recognizes the drive, but it does not show up under My Computer and can not access it. FDISK will not recognize it, I can not load an operating system onto it. I have some valuable information that I had not backed up before this happened. Currently I have the drive set as slave and a working hard drive at primary. Any suggestions as to what I can do to recover the drive? It is almost as if there is not a good partition to access.
I would appreciate any suggestions.
