the computer wouldn't recognize either drive (primary with windows, nor the 250GB Seagate.) I once again checked all jumpers, cords, switch them around on the IDE strip, booted up, and BIOS still wouldn't detect either of them. i took out the ex external drive, and computer booted up fine no problems.
so then, inside windows, I connected the drive via the external enclosure like I usually do, and nothing happened! I switched the jumper to all possible configurations, still nothing. rebooted windows, still nothing. I tried other drives inside the enclosure, worked perfectly.
what could be wrong? the drive has never made any abnormal sounds such as clicking or anything else usually related to a bad drive. when the drive is powered on, i can hear it spin up as normal, and sound normal and everything it just won't get detected by any means.
It's in the freezer right now. What could be the problem?
