Some external HD cases like the HD to be jumpered as master (MA) and some like cable select (CS). You should try each one to see which is friendly.
In Windows XP, I format all my drives in DISK MANAGEMENT.
Hey guys, i need some help with this one.
I bought a Maxtor 120GB External HD, and it crashed (I/O error...and i opened the HD and bad mistake) . All info gone just like that. Fine, i was pissed for a long time, but time to move on. I bought a new Maxtor 250GB Internal HD and use the old external casing (so i can move around with my laptop). The new Maxtor Harddrive was detected in my computer Vaio. The thing is, it doesnt come out in 'My Computer' as 'Removable Disk (G:)'
On the below right hand corner, i can see the "Safely remove hardware" but i can't access the HD. Should i reformat the new Harddrive or FDISK? Can you tell me the steps to do it. I've also heard about Master something and try searching for TWEAKUI in the search button by the start tab. What is wrong and how can i fix this problem so i can use the new external HD? Thank u so much.
