Hello,
I am running windows xp sp3. I am trying to get much needed data off of a external fujitsu mht2060ah hard drive. I purchased a sata/ide to usb 2.0 adapter. I have it hooked up and windows chimes that is sees it but it is not showing up on my computer.
It is showing in disk management ...It says Disk 3 basic online with 55.88Gb (60gdrive) on the left side and on the right is says 55.88gb unallocated There is no option to change the drive path.
I right click the left side (in bottom right side window) and only get three options
1) (greyed out) create dynamic disk
2) properties
3)help
I click on properties for drive and it says it is working properly.
I right click on the right side with the options
1) new partition
2) properties
3) help
I have read through many forums without success.
I have tried using USB on back of computer. I have 4 jumper blocks and have tried it in cs and device1 and device 0
I am thinking the hard drive is fried...if you think no and can help I would appreciate it.

If windows disk management shows that the disk is 'unallocated', then it is most likely that the partition has been deleted and that the disk is blank.

I agree with _ZX....looks like that HDD is blank.
