Question about Seagate 160GB 3.5" External USB Drive 160 GB Hard Drive
Hi, hope you can help.
I have dropped my old laptop, bought a new one and a usb hdd enclosure hoping to retrieve the data. Vista is seeing the drive but says it is not ready when i try to open it. It also doesn't show any memory available.
Thanks for reading.
Could it be a power issue? Some older laptop HDs need more power than one USB port can provide and won't spin up properly. If you have a cable with your HD enclosure which had two USB connectors on the end, make sure you plug both into ports on your laptop.
When they don't spin up correctly, you tend to hear them clicking as they try to spin & then cut out. Have a listen to it when you plug it in & see what you can hear.
