Hoping that someone can help give me some ideas on what may have happened. I just upgraded my computer with a new motherboard, CPU and 4TB drive. My 2TB was previously in use on the old system running Windows XP (NTFS) and now I am running Windows 7 Pro. The computer does not recognize the drive whether it is plugged in directly to a SATA port or when I place it in an external drive case with USB cable connection. My other drive which is a Seagate 400GB SATA transfered into my new system without a hitch.
I recall taking a jumper off one of my drives but can’t be sure it was the WD20EADS. I’ve tried the various jumper settings to see if it would make a difference and had no luck.
I have 15 years of home movies backed up on this drive and hope to gain access again. ANY IDEAS?
