you might need to crack the case open and plug the hdd directly into the pc could be the usb controller on the case gone.
Mauller07 ....thanks alot for the info . But , is that usb controller , or connecter ? So this means the plug is bad ? Anyway I'll open up the lesser of the drives 1st and see what I can see . Thanks alot for the quick reply . Alot of my world is on these drives and I hope they are not lost !
