|If the hard drive is being seen in Windows Disk Management then it must be rotating. Don't confuse a format issue with a mechanical issue. |
If, in fact, there is a mechanical issue and the hard drive is NOT rotating then you wouldn't hear and sound coming from IT.
With the drive connected internally as a slave or in an external enclosure, go into Windows disk management and see if the hard drive show there at all. If so, post any and all information listed for that drive.
