Try plugging it onto another computer, prferably with a Windows OS. If it reads, then its a driver issue with your computer or your USB port.
If the device isn't recognised, then Im afraid your hard drive has an issue. Take it to a repair center, hopefully its a loose contact withing the USB/IDE points inside the casing and your data should be fine. Keep your fingers crossed.

Thanks for using FixYa. There are a few reasons this can happen.

1. Your Mac has corrupted systems files.
2. The USB Cable Could be faulty.
3. The AC adapter could be faulty.
4. The enclosure Could be faulty.
5. The drive in the enclosure could be faulty.

The easiest two to test are the USB cable and corruption on your Mac.
Try connecting the drive to a different computer. If it works your system is corrupted, Archive and re-install your Mac and this should repair the problem. If that fails try a different USB cable, if it works, problem solved. If they both fail, move onto the AC adapter. Take the drive and enclosure to a PC shop and have the techs test the AC adapter with a multi-meter, if it checks out then we're down to the enclosure or drive if it doesn't test with a replacement.(Important, use an actual PC shop, not a big box, Most of the $8/hr staff at the big box stores don't know how to use a multi-meter let alone the next step). If the replacement fails or if the AC adapter tests good then the problem is either in the Enclosure or harddrive. The PC shop should be able to test the drive in a new enclosure if the above steps failed, if it works in a new enclosure the fault was in your enclosure, buy the new enclosure and be on your way.

Finally, if all the above steps fail then the fault is in the actual hard drive. If this is the case you will require the help of a pro to retrieve the data. I will be happy to refer you to an appropriate facility if this is the case. If it is the case reply with your location(city, state and country) and I will provide one or more nearby options and help you get checked in to their system.

Hope this helps FixYa,

hello, Yes I think so because if you have a new computer you gonna get problem to find your sata driver when you trying to install your XP, also you need to search and install the drivers manually and that can be hard if you dont have a other computer with network access to Internet. Its the easiast way to get your computer to XP. if you had the restore cds to your computer it should be easy to recovery your computer to XP.

good luck.

My probleme is who to get drivers to install it on my PC.
Thank you.

Hello jensen1! I have checked what software your HDD uses and unfortunately its just the driver. So the best thing to do now will b e to get me a screen shot of the software that are using. Also Snap means take a snap of your current HDD and store means storing a backup of the current files. If you can just mail a high res pic of the software to vls_powerful2002@yahoo.co.in I will have a look and suggest a solution.

have you tried to do it in the SAFE mode, I've had to fix alot on my Vista which all have been done through the safe mode and no problems so far

Acomdata... | Answered on Sep 06, 2008

Hmm, that's odd. Does it work on any other PC? And have you had any problems with any other USB devices?

Acomdata... | Answered on Aug 23, 2008

You won't see a new drive in My Computer until it's initialised.

Right click on My Computer
Click Manage
Select Disk Management (in the left pane)
Scroll down in the bottom right pane until you see your drive.

If you right click on the drive, you should have an option to initialise it. Follow the process through until the end.

Apologies for getting a little vague towards the end, I haven't initialised a drive in a little while now.

Hope this helps!
