External Harddrive Data is not accessible.
Posted on 2007-07-24
I need to access data on a external harddrive. Harddrive was a drive pulled from another computer than put in a case ... USB connection. I believe it is a USB 2 connection.
THE PROBLEM : I can't access the harddrive. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it, unloaded and reloaded drivers, updated drivers, unloaded and reloaded in safe mode. Installed it on a 2 different machines XP-PRO, W2000, sp4. Tried a different USB port and a different USB cable. Nothing has worked so far.
I can see the darn thing in the device manager and the USB loads in the task bar.. it does have a green and red light with both lighst on the case are usually lit all the time.
Does anyone have any idea how to access the data on this harddrive? This is extremely critical as it is the backup data for an upgrade on our mfg. software that went south. Thank YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
