Hi.I have a 500gb 3.5 caviar green (wd500aads) hard drive which I've removed from a western digital enclosure.When I place the hard drive In a 5.25 bay docking station ( connected to an Internal sata port ) It doesn't recognise the drive.Wont see It In disk management.Any other drive I Insert In the docking station works fine.When I connect the drive to an external usb adapter , It's recognised Immediately and works fine.
What reason could there be for It not being read In the docking station? Could there be circuitry on this drive allowing It only to be read from an external adapter?
Would appreciate any assistance.Thanks
The drive works When Installed Internally.Can't think why It's not working In the docking station , I know It accepts 300mbps drives.
