i formatted my WD5000G032 model 500 gb which has a usb port and a n/w port. i formatted by removing the hard disk from the case and connect to computer thru sata. i think i removed partitions and all those data recovery software etc whatever there was built in…and now i cant detect thru usb but its working wen i connect thru sata after taking out from the case… pls help …wat to do
Sounds like the case won’t recognize the drive, it’s possible that the configuration to allow them to work together was lost or that the case itself does no longer work, what if you try a different USB external case?
That’s what I would do if I were you =)
