did you physically install another hard drive? if so set the jumpers to cable select if this does not work try make drive c the master and drive d the slave. if you havent physically installed another drive then the d drive was only a partition so c drive is all there is. hope this helps.
First, retrace your steps.
Make sure that the hard drive in the ext. casing is set to Drive 0 or master. If it is a Western Digital, take off any jumpers. If it Maxtor or Seagate it needs a jumper on the master pins. The legend on the hard drive will show you where.
Then, make sure that the IDE cable is on correctly. Or like many enclosures, you have to push the hard drive onto the connector.
When you power the unit up, listen to the hard drive and hear if it is spinning up.
Then see if it works.
I would also try a different USB port.
Did the enclosure include an AC power source? If not , the USB may not have enough power to run the unit.
If it still shows as an unknown unit, I would set it up as a secondary internally on your new PC to see if it is in fact the hard drive that is bad. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
Well there are a couple different solutions. If you have another hard drive replace it with your other one and make the one that you want to format the secondary hard drive. Then after you boot the computer, all you gotta do is go to my computer and which ever drive the hard drive is set up on you can right click on the right drive. Go to where it says format and click on it and then follow the instructions.
You can also format the hard drive if you got a windows disk. Just put the disk in your cd-rom and restart the computer and then go through the setup process. You will get to a point where it will ask you if you wanna keep the files the same or do you wanna format the hard drive. There are two options for fomatting: There is a quick format or a full format. If you wanna totally wipe everything off the hard drive make sure you do the full format. It only takes a little while longer than the quick format process, so you are just better wiping it totally clean and then reboot windows on the hard drive when it is done formatting......
1. Right click My computer and select Manage.
2. Click on Disk Management.
In the right hand window you should see all of your drives with their drive letter.
If you see a drive listed but without a drive letter that is likely to be your “missing” drive. To gain access try the following:
1. Right click the drive and select Change Drive Letter and Paths.
2. Click the Change button.
3. Select a Drive letter and click Ok.
Now check My Computer for the drive.
In Windows? Try volume manager (admin. tools or via rightclicking on the drive, which you should totally have tried first.) If there are already files on it but they don't show, perhaps that computer doesn't know how to access the filesystem used initially, and you need to get the appropriate filesystem (or a compatible likeness) installed on the machine at hand.
Often USB hard drives come preformatted to FAT32, but that filesystem can't handle files over 2GB, so you almost certainly need to install NTFS or something better instead.
