Question about Compaq Evo D500 PC Desktop
Computer sees the drive. That is important. I'm assuming this uses a standard IDE cable and the drive isn't physically damaged. Make sure it is the only drive connected and it is the Master. Try flipping the cable if you have checked that the connection has a snug fit. Put the connector that you had the hard drive originally on and place it on the motherboard and the connection that the motherboard had insert it in the hard drive.Or better yet try a new cable. IDE cables have a tendency to fail. You could also try some recovery software. Maxtor is now part of Seagate so you can try here:
If you absolutely have to get data off this drive and you are desperate, then you could try the freezer trick. Put a dry towel and hard drive in the freezer for an hour or 2. Take the hard drive out and wrap it with the cold dry towel. That is to try and minimize any condensation build up. Plug in the hard drive and see if it works. This could potentially kill the hard drive but I have recovered data using this method before. If this works for you do not depend on this drive anymore. Good luck.
