|Thanks Phill for answering, actually yes i bought an external IDE enclosure from store, and i connected it with my laptop which is 64 BIT WIN 7. I can feel the enclosure working by putting hand over it. but my laptop isnt showing any partitions. when i looked into disk management, that was showing it but as an un allocated space. i tried to initialize it but it popped up the I/O error. |
does that mean i have lost my drive :(.........please give me some solution.
