Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, I have a toshiba 80gb HDD in an external usb powered enclosure (ibm travelstar). If I cannot it to my PC, the HDD wont spin and the drive is not recognised. However, if I take off the cover of the enclosure and slightly pull the connect out the back of the HDD (not fully) it will then power up. I can then push the connect fully back into the HDD and use. Does anyone know why this is happening and how to do it so I don't have to keep slightly pulling out the connection out the back of the HDD for it to spin?

I would suggest running linux based GParted live cd. Under linux you can alter the sizes of partitions and configure the partitions and format in NTFS/Fat32/

Does it make any clicking/clunking sounds like any of these?
If yes - it's really bad and there's nothing you could by yourself..
If it sounds normal or doesn't spin up at all then try to remove it from enclosure and connect directly to a PC.
