Question about Hitachi Travelstar 80 GB Hard Drive
Ok so My laptop crashed a while ago and I just got a new one. Now My problem is I took my old notebook's hard drive and put it into a USB external hard drive case and Pluged it in... the computer reads that it's there and I can feel the hard drive running but when I go to my computer it isn't there. Some one suggested to right click on my computer and go to manage and then to disk managment. I did but it doesnt even show up there. How do I find it.
Go into the notebooks bios and see if there is a boot from USB in the boot sequence section. If there is, then enable it. If there is none, then it will never boot from an external drive.

SOURCE: hard disk acess problem
Hi, What the message mean is that Windows can not read/understand the filing system (something like the Table of Contents in a book) and therefore do not which and where are your files in the 80Gb. A few things you can try: 1. Run Windows Scandisdk on the Hitachi 80Gb; 2. Run any third party disk check/utility such Norton Disk Doctor. Alternately, you can use a file recovery software (such as GetDataBack) to recover/copy all your important files from the 80Gb and transfer them to another mass storage device. Thereafter, you can re-partition and re-format the said Hitachi to start new/fresh/clean. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turnes up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Has it got its own power supply or is it using a two USB ended cable. It could be your laptop cannot supply enough power via one USB port so that it really needs a two ended cable so that two USB ports will power it up. Try this Mark

it sounds like a hardrive issue. You can have the data retrieved from your hard drive by using this online company that I highly recommend:

If the HHD gets power and you can feel the drive spinning, you can try these steps and see if your problem is solved. Go to:
Now you should see your drive in the schematic below. Right click on it and choose the option to change drive letter or paths. Now just assign a new drive letter to the drive, restart your computer and it should work fine.
If you cannot see any power light flickering or feel movement on the drive when you power it up, then there is a other problem. Hope this can help you.
