I have an external hdd which I have extracted from it's case. I have made it a slave drive on a PC and it is recognized by the bios correctly. The hard drive does not show up in My Computer. I am trying to extract the files if possible.
You need to make it available to windows.
Go to control panel/administrative tools/computer management/storage/disk management/
you should see your drive where you can make it active, and give it a drive letter
Thanks this is good info and I will save it for future reference. Unfortunately the client was in a bit of a hurry and has decided to try someone with a little more experience. I appreciate the help though.
