I bought a 1 TB HP Mediasmart Server to save and share all of my digital media. I had a 500 GB WD Netcenter external harddrive that was almost full. The HP Mediaserver comes with 4 bays but only 2 are occupied as sold. Well I had the BRIGHT idea of taking the cover off of my WD Netcenter and robbing the harddrive out of it and just popping it in one of the empty bays of my new HP Medieserver. I popped it in, booted up my HP and walla...it recognized the drive I just popped in it. I was very excited but that soon changed. When I tried to access the info on my WD Netcenter hd, It kept popping up saying I needed to format the harddrive first...but obviously I didnt want to format it because it had all my digital media on it. I immediatly put the harddrive back in the Netcenter case and tried to open it up but no luck :( Long story short no matter what computer I put the WD netcenter drive in....I cant see the data on it. And no, for all of those wondering, I didnt backup the WD Netcenter drive before I started this venture! One lesson I learned is that, drinking and driving is a bad idea.....but drinking and working on computers when your not qualified is a bad idea too. Anyways, any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
