I have an internal WD1200JB drive from my old PC that I was hoping to use as an external drive. I have placed it in a caddy and connected it to a USB port in my new PC, a Dell Inspiron running under Windows 7.
The PC says that it recognises a USB Mass Storage and then says that it is installing Device Driver Software. After some mintes this fails with the error message that the Device driver software was not successfully installed. Device Manager gives the Device Status as This device cannot start (Code 10).
I have tried using the Windows check for drivers and it says that the most up to date ones are installed. I have also tried it with the jumper set for Cable Select and with no jumper for Single (Standard Installation). Neither of these works.
Is there any hope that I can eventually get the drive to work?
