My primary computer's PSU is failing to power my unit. I have two internal HDD's both NTFS formats, 1 is for the OS and programs, the other is for data. I have a secondary Dell computer that is still working. When I put my Data internal into my dell with proper power and sata connection it does not detect the drive at all. Even under Computer>Manage>Disk Inspection.
@rand_79: I formatted it and assigned it a drive letter in my other computer, so I don't think that's the problem. and in the original post I had said I had done what you already mentioned.
@werner123: I really hope it isn't donezo. That would make 3 in 1 month, someone can't have that bad of luck, can they? Anyways, I unfortunately can't get my hands on an enclosure, thanks for the suggestion though.
@fzabkar: Those puppies spin nice. Their model number is: HD103SJ.
As a sidenote, both drives were formatted for NTFS and given drive letters on my other computer, which is malfunctioning. Here's what my disk management looks like when I have 1 of the drives in:
Both drives produce the same thing. Little bit of a reminder, one drive holds my boot for win7, and the other just my media, and they both display the same way. The reason I'm doing one at a time is because my older dell computer only has 2 HDD slots.
If I were to reformat the drive(s) I would lose all the data on them, correct? Which is not what I want to do.
Oh my, the problem lies between the desk and my chair. It's me! Haha, by default the SATA ports on my mobo are disabled, so while I was checking on the BIOS, I saw that and was like...what the....*enable!*
