  1. I'd try both Master and Cable select. Does the enclosure have its own power or is it using the USB for power? If the latter, I believe only certain USB ports can be used, I think the ones on the back of the machine but not absolutely sure of this.
  2. yea i did :b the problem was some chip in the harddisk was burned but it did work with another harddisk so np :b thanks anyway
  3. Glad you figured it out
