Windows XP not recognizing the hard drives

Good morning, I bougt two Seagate 250 GB EIDE HD 7200/8MB/ATA-100 Hardrives and encased them in two Ultra Hard Drive Enclosure 3.5 USB 2.0/ Firewire cases. The first one quit and started clicking. I was told its as good as scrap metal now :(. About $200 total down the drain. The other one after reinstalling windows xp will not be recognized in the My Computer area. I have played with and activated the USB drives, downloaded some drivers... and tried different cords and USB ports. Could someone please help me with this issue. I put all my personal data on this hard drive for the reinstallation I did. Any help would be much appriciated! Thank you very much Shayne

On the first drive that does sound DOA if you bought it new, is less than one year old and the warranty hasn?t been voided you should be able to get a refund from the manufacturer. Second drive, have you tried connecting the drive enclosure to another computer as a test? If it can?t read the drive data either I would suspect the enclosure electronics are faulty. Also have you tried the firewire interface yet? Semper Fi, are you active or former?

IDENTIFYING THE HDD

No this will most likely not recognize the drive to it's fullest capability. It might not recognize it at all or be compatible with it.

SECOND HARD DRIVE NOT RECOGNIZED

Change the settings of you IDE drives in your BIOS. Set your secondary boot device to HDD1. Also make sure that your primary HDD is set to master and the secondary HDD is slave. The jumper is found at the back of the hard drive where you connect the power and IDE cables. Try this and post back as to how it went..
