Windows stopped Auto Detecting may Raid 0 Hard Drive Enclosure
Posted on 2011-09-19
I have a Raid 0 Hard drive enclosure that contains 2 hard drives that each have a 500 Meg capacity. I ran a check disk / scan disk in Windows 7. I also told it to attempt to repair any damaged sectors. I don't know if this caused the problem but Windows will no longer auto-detect the Hard Drive any longer. I changed the USB cable and tried it with a different port and on another laptop and it had the same problem so the issue is definitely with the external hard drive. I just ordered another Raid Hard Drive enclosure that does Raid 0. I will swap out the hard drives from the old enclosure and try them in the new enclosure to see if that solves the problem.
