Today I bought a used WD Green 2TB 3,5" HDD( WD20EARS-00MVWB1 ). It has 9500 Hours of usage and I just hooked it up to my computer.
I now have the problem that the HDD doesn't show up at all. This is what I have done so far:
I have 2 extra slots on my PC for HDD's and used one of these for the first time now. First i thought maybe the plugs weren't fitting right so I opened my pc and plugged the drive in manually. Still nothing.
I looked at the Device Manager and Computer>Manage>Disk Management but it just wont show.
Now I have no idea what could be wrong. Any suggestions? Can provide(or make) pics of plugs, etc if needed.
Usually you only need to connect one of them to the power supply cable. But go ahead and connect both of them to separate molex (4 pin) connectors on different lines from the power supply. That should do it.
