OK so when I plug in the drive I can hear it attempting to start - It makes 4 loud spins then slows to a stop but the light stays on. At this point I hear the plug and play sound but the drive is nowhere to be seen in My Computer. Ive tried it on two different computers so it’s not a faulty USB port.
I realise the drive is probably dead but my question is, will a data recovery program be able to retrieve anything if the drive is like this and not showing up on My Computer? Also if I bought a USB to SATA cable would there be any chance of that working?
