win 7 64 bit



by the grace of god i was able to get the info my client needed off of the hard drive.  


But now i am beginning to wonder if i am looking at a new coffee coaster or a soon to be usable hard drive.



When i have it docked in my external drive reader, it will show up in windows just fine.  After about 30 seconds all windows close and it dismounts.


{somehow it stayed on one time to allow me to get 10 gigs of data off of it, then it promptly shut off... lol}



i cant get the bios to recognize it.  nothing will, not even partedmagic.



if it's recoverable, what do i do?


if not, any idea what happened to this thing.


There is a pretty good click when it powers down so i am not comfortable saying to anyone that it will still be a good drive.  I just want to use it to meddle around with other systems i have laying around.


Thanks for the help
