You pretty much are (for lack of a better word) screwed, without all of the pins contacting the cable, it wont be recognized by the CPU. my best suggestion, is to take it to a data recovery shop, and see if they can recover any of the stuff on it. [WARNING] not the cheapest thing to do, but worth it if you have some valuable information on the drive.

An ide 120G WD hard drive will not start up and is not recognized in the CMOS. Tried changing power connector to drive and drive cable. Drive appears dead. never made a sound.


If it appears dead, then it probably is. If it is warrantied, return or replace. If not,there are some pretty good prices on ebay. Good Luck.

I WANT TO OPEN THE LACIE 500 GB HDD AND USE THE HDD IN MY DESK TOP


Go for it. There's a chance the internal drive will be PATA (IDE) but odds are good it's a SATA drive with standard connections.

Make sure your PC has connections for SATA drives, and you'll need to buy a SATA cable since the one in the LaCIE case won't connect from your drive to your motherboard.

The disk is either damaged or the USB interface is damaged.
1) You could try opening the external case and connect the disk to your computer directly (Using IDE/S-ATA cables)
2) Format the HD and use data recovery software/service.

Hi,
After plugging ur HDD, verify the device is detected or not in Device manager and Try Partitioning Again GUI mode (means in XP).. or follow the steps..

1- Go to Computer Management, Click Disk Management
2 - You will find you External HDD in the Right side
3 - Just Right Click the Drive, if it asks Initialize HDD, just Initialize and Create Partition as u like.

Have Fun
