My western digital mybook premium edition II usb raid system has disappeared from vista

My western digital mybook premium edition II usb raid system has disappeared from vista. Even after rebooting vista, the drive no longer shows up. I downloaded the WD drive manager utility, which also did not recognize the drive. How can I fix this raid drive?

Well, you may not be able to fix it, since it sounds like a hardware failure.

The first step to take should be to hook it up to an XP machine and see if it shows up.  

Vista's security stuff can sometimes loose a drive because of an access glitch.  So, if XP can see it you know that it is not a hardware problem, and just many hours of fighting with Vista...


Good Luck !

Good suggestion, I'll try it on XP. It did show up on another Vista machine, and the raid manager tool showed the drive this time, but it labeled the raid status as bad.
