Hi, Just brought a HDD Reader from maplins, when i pluged it into my USB port i got the new hardware ready to use notification, also you can hear the hard drive spin, but when i go to My computer the hard drive is not shown, any ideas.
Thanks John, im not with the HDD at the momment but i will check the jumper, it should be set to master as it has just come out of a working tower. Will also look in computer management storage when i get home. will report back later. Cheers
Check first that jumpers are not set to cable select as it would still have worked in desktop with that setting. Then if you know that the hard drive is good then you need to confirm that the caddy is also good. Do you have another hard drive or can you borrow one to try in it? Alternatively set hard drive jumper to slave and install it as second drive in desktop and see if it is recognised.
