Or the USB cable gone bad. Or the caddy/enclosure is faulty. First make sure the connection is good. If that doesn't work then try to replace the USB cable or caddy. Another thing you can try, place the external HDD directly to the MB by opening/breaking the caddy. m 0 l vinaytrex November 8, 2013 8:43:02 AM Tried another wire too... its still the same m 0 l Related resources HELP!
