I have a Toshiba p-20 laptop, 2.8ghz with HT, 512 mb of ram running Windows XP with SP2
Here is the problem:
I plug in the HD into a USB socket, the computer see's that there is new hardware and for a few minutes the little icon on the bottom right shows. Then it disappears and nothing. I started up disk management and the hard drive wasn't there (note: i have another external 80gb harddrive which works fine)
I opened up the case, took out the little thing thats in the pins so that the hard drive would be configured on master. Still nothing, rebooted computer, nothing.
The annoying thing is, that the computer knows its there. In device manager under disk drives, there is a new "Disk Drive" that shows up (i know its the new HD because it disappears whenever i unplug it)
Even western digitals Data Lifeguard does not find it.
I'm at a loss at what to do
