My back up and gerneral storage HD has disappeared. It doesn't show up in hardware or in the BIOS sequence. All connections are sound. The drive is two years old only used about once a month. Has it just died or is there some way to get it back?
This is an inernal drive and I have swapped across the power supply from my C drive which is still fine The missing disc does not appear under Disk management, hardware config, computer properties nor in the BIOS as a secondary drive which it used to.
Hi Fruit Bat This is a SATA drive. I should have mentioned that a did a data cable swap at the same time as the power cable. SATA/IDE auto detect is on in the BIOS and recognises my C drive Maxtor 80GB as SATA 1. If I look at SATA 2 all settings are set to auto but still no sign of my 500GB second drive. I might just try temporarily disconnecting the C drive and see if the missing drive pops up in the BIOS, along shot, but, who knows
