Hi I had a 160gb Seagate as my systems C drive. Then i had all of my photographs and videos and all important stuff on a 250gb external seagate connected with usb.
Then i bought a 1TB hard drive and i stupidly connected it to the motherboard and the computer instantly turned off. It wouldnt turn on but eventualy i got it on. I tryed for a week to get the system to read any hard drive and the only one it would read was an old ide hard drive that wasnt connected. I brought the 160 and the 250 in to a pc shop and the guy said they were dead and he put a new psu in my computer and they wouldnt work and he tryed his own hard drive in it and it read it fine.
I cant accept that my data is gone. There was to be a way of getting it back. I feel the data is still there just it cant be acessed.
