Hi all,
I have just received the salvaged hard drives from my water damaged Sony Vaio AW31XY/Q, a 500GB HDD and one of the two 64GB SSD's (I am trying to find out what happened to the other SSD!).The AW31 ran on Vista Ultimate.
My problem is, that although the 500GB HDD is instantly recognised,and all the files are accessible on my new Vaio, running Windows 7 Ultimate, the 64GB SSD flagged as "needs formatting." Obviously re-formatting will wipe all the memory.
Any ideas anyone?

I think that your SSD's were running in RAID, so youll need the other SSD and the same chipset to be able to retrieve your original data.
