Hello all I have a Hitachi SATA 2.5 250HHD 5400RPM. it came out of an old laptop. I had it hooked up to a enclosure and 1 day it stopped working. For laffs i took it out and hooked it up to a IDE/SATA external connection that connect to the computer via USB, and it worked; until today. I went to check on something on it and I saw that it was not spinning. I unplugged it and tried the old extern. enclosure again and nothing. I went to my moms laptop and nothing either, but I managed to check the Device Manager and in there it does see it, but not in the My Computer window, and I can still not hear or feel it spin. I can also see it in the Device Manager on my computer, but I can not access it nor see it any other way. For the record I am running Vista and my mom is running XP. Anything I can do... If you need more info please ask. Thanx in advance.
