Recovering laptop drive - "Not initialized" in Disk Mgmt
Posted on 2009-04-05
I've done a slew of searching and am not able to solve my issue. I got a new laptop and I bought a Kingwin us-2535 USB adaptor to take the information from my old laptop hard drive to transfer to my new computer.
Here are my symptoms:
-The old drive is XP, my new computer is Vista
-I set the jumper so that the old drive is the slave
-My computer recognizes it and both lights are lit on the adaptor (Power and R/W)
-Can't see the drive in My Computer
-I see it in Device Manager and it says it's working and has the most recent driver
-I see it in Disk Management, but it says "not initialized"
My thought is that maybe it's conflicting because the old laptop drive was labeled as "C:", so is my new one, obviously. In researching, I'm finding all kinds of variations of the symptoms, but not a solution.
Thanks for your help!
