Specs: Windows Vista, 4 gb
I have a WD 3,5 Hard drive and I bought I case so I could make it external.

However, when I connect it to my laptop, running on Vista Home Premium x64 SP2 it does not work.

The drive is seen by Vista (it shows up in the Disk Management section in Computer Management) but it does not show up in
My Computer. In Disk Management it appears Disk 1, Dynamic, Invalid, with a red downwards arrow .

As I have all my info there a soluyion that requires a format is not an option.

What can I do to make the drive accesible on my laptop?

Why did you make the drive dynamic?

You should have the option of importing the disk via Disk Mangement
