Question about Vantec 1 Bay NexStar 3 USB 2.0 External Drive Case
Laptop hard drive is having problems. Would load into Windows XP do a blue screen then go to a dos prompt. I thought I would take the drive out and put into a external drive to get the information off in case it was going bad. There is no load clicking or grinding noises like I have heard in the past when a drive goes bad.
Bought the NexStar external drive. Hard Drive is a IDE Seagate. First time I connected it to my desktop computer it showed as a USB Mass Storage Device, did like always with other usb external drives. It then got stuck. The new hardware icon at the bottom kept on showing. I then went to My Computer and the drive would not show. Then the computer locked down completely. I then restarted with the usb drive still attached.
This time Windows XP was stalling at the Welcome screen. I unhooked the external usb drive and it went on into Windows. I then again tried to hook up the usb drive. I opened My Computer first. It does like it is searching for the drive but never finds it. I let it sit and the drive never shows. So again I unhooked it. In My Computer windows I: Drive shows quickly and then disappears.
I went and tried to install on my other laptop as a external usb drive. Same thing happened again as I just described. I have tried changing the drive's jumpers and nothing seems to work.
What could be the problem? The drive or the external case?

Its normal, and is the signal showing the drive powering/spinning up and down. The drive spins at 7200 rpms, when you power it up or down, its switches onto the speed that best suits what it's intended to do.
