I have an imac whose Hard Drive failed and would not mount and had to be replace, like an ■■■■■ I lost a good bit of info as I hadnt ran in back-up in quite a while. Anyway I got the faulty hard drive back and have been trying to get it to load on a PC to see if I can retrieve some of the info.
I am not a whizz on computers but the general jist is when i inserted the hard drive in the PC it requested me to install drivers and I did so succesfully, Vista will not recognise the hard drive in explorer but the drive is appearing in BIOS and the device manager so it is there.
I am not sure but if I was to be able to designate a number to the drive would explorer recognise it then, in drive management this option is greyed out. I was told to set the drive as a slave drive but as far as I am aware this drive is dual anyway. When it comes to jumpers etc… it has 8 pins and correct me again if i am wrong put I dont think jumpers are neccessary in this case to set it as a slave. How would I go about setting it eclusively as a slave?
Hopefully someone can help on how i should go about recognising the drive?
