I have a Maxtor One Touch 4 Drive went dead. windows would not recognize it as a drive anymore when I used the USB, although (it did show up in the Device Manager as a USB device.
I removed the drive and connected it directly to the desktop mb with the SATA cables (power and data).
It does show up in the system's BIOS
Disk Management shows as: Disk One "Unknown Not Initialized" when I try to initialize it it pops up with an I/O error message
and when I start my computer it says:
3rd Slave hard Disk Error
In Disk part it shows "online" but from here I am lost because it shows 0MB as it's volume size.
Is there anyway to access this disk from the command line or somewhere? I called a couple of the data recovery places that were recommended and all of them say that it has to show up in Disk Mgmt in order for their programs to work.
