|Hellow everyone! I'm new on this forum and need your valuable help.|
I have a Seagate ATA 500GB hard drive for data backup which is hooked to PC via enternal enclosure. Couple of days ago, when I tried another Seagate ATA 160GB drive installed with OS XP on a newly purchased hard drive docking station, the drive failed (still fails up to now) to spin on the docking station. Then I try 500GB drive on that dock station and same thing happens. Then I try both drives on external enclosure, 160GB drive spins and 500GB drive does not. Same thing happens when IDE cable is unpluged, 160Gb drive spins and 50GB drive doesn't. The Vista does not detect 160GB drive as it spins. My questions: what could be wrong with 500GB drive fails spinning on the external enclosure and Vista does not detect 160GB drive.
Thanks very much.
