My (old) harddisk simply couldn't work.....=-=/
It couldn't even be regonized as a disk nor as a drive when I try to connect it as an externally driver (I tried it on 2 computers already).....T_T

I think you have to have the drive set to Slave before it will work externally. This is accomplished by changing a jumper on the back of the hard drive. There is usually a sticker on the top of the HD, or inscriptions by the jumpers, to help you determine what is Slave.

If you need further help with setting the jumpers, let me know the brand of Hard drive it is. Or if it doesn't work, let me know.

That's not good. If you got another computer available, try it on there and see what it says.

Sorry for the late reply and thanks for your suggestions.

I finally got access to an other computer but the result is........T_T

It couldn't be recognized as a hard disk, or I should say the computer just slowed down and the couldnot access to the newly connected hard disk until I unplugged it and the drive's name suddenly appeared in "My Computer" and disappear again...........T_T

it there anyway that I could save my data? :whistling:


Thanks a lot.
