You say it is "showing in Windows". Where? In My Computer? In Disk Management, Upper or Lower Right pane? What exactly does it say?
Can you post a link to the thread you referenced? That might help me understand what you have done so far.
You are right not to Format now. Post answers to above, and we can guide you to what to look at next.
Yeah , its showing in both MY Computer & Disk Management .
It shows the HDD is active but states "RAW" .
And sorry i can't seem to b able to find the thread which i saw your reply.
So is it possible for me to retract/copy some files off that HDD ?
Thanks in adv.
