How to Copy a SATA drive taken from a PVR/DVR (personal video recorder) via my PC
My Sony PVR had a PCB board crash -- and I've got lots of stuff on the 160Gb HDD. It's a WD SATA. Now this is going to make your blood run cold but I just stuck the HDD in my PC (loose) and paralleled it up to my regular HDD. The PC booted up ok but I was hoping that I could see the drive and copy it. But alas I can't see the WD drive. Can anyone advise me how I should be doing this? I have plugged in the parallel connection and also the spare power lead.
