I bought a SATA 400 GB WD hard drive a few months ago, ran it in my eMachines as the slave (used a IDE to SATA adaptor) and put all my important data on the HD.
Well, about a month ago it just stopped working on me. I was going through files on the drive and it froze up.
I thought I might have fried the adaptor, but I found out that's not the case as I bought a new motherboard with SATA plugs.
Now when I go into my computer, it's not there at all, I go to the computer management/disk management and it's not there. But when I go into the device manager it says it's there. When I go to the properties and go to volumes then click on populate, it says;
Disk: Disk 0
Partition Style: Unknown
Now I've got months and months worth of work on there, stuff that I hadn't had the chance to back-up yet. Some of it I can replace, but there's over 40 GB of data that I could never replace.
Can someone please help me with my problem here???
