ok, when i first used the passport it worked fine, without any software. on my way to school it suffered a small drop (about 1/4 of a metre. from now it isnt working but i can still hear the discs spinning and the light comes on. windows plays the autoplay sound whenever i have connected it but it doesnt show up in explorer.
i have removed the hd from the case and im now using it in a SATA port. in when i boot up my pc recognises a drive is installed but doesnt show any details for it, and it doesnt show up in device manager, is there any drivers i need to install to get the hd to work internally? ps. the drive has suffered worst drops and has always worked before.
