my 2.5 external hardisk not working
my external hardisk is WDC 80 gb 54000 rpm, ide to usb. recently i plugged my external hardisk to usb port of my computer but my system did not detect it. the hardisk also did not like it is functioning eventhough the green light was lit. i tried plug in both usb heads to the usb ports and plug to other usb port but failed. when i tested at my friend's computer, it's working perfectly. what's wrong with my external hardisk? thanks
IDE to USB... I take it you bought a internal HD and slapped it in an enclosure? If so... what's the make and model of the enclosure?
If not, can you give us a specific model number of the external drive?
Also, check windows disk management to see if it's detected, but just not loading up.
