Hiya people,i came across this site whilst googling. Im after some help regarding the 320 internal drive.
i had an accident with my laptop and i got another. i hoped of recovering all my data (pics etc) off the drive and onto my new laptop BUT it wont connect. I have purchased 1 of those usb-stat cables and it wont work,even after 15 mins. Itll power up,spin then stop and restart. SOMETIMES itll connect (bing) then lose contact. I have read many forums saying that its dead but some say you can replace the board with same model as the memory is stored onto the writeable disc and get it working that way.
Oh an just to say i have been in device manager and disk management and it wont show.
I came across this post http://community.wdc.com/t5/Other-Externals/HD-quot-Failure-quot-Fix-I-Tried-and-It-worked/td-p/389001 which gives me hope of retrieving all my stuff off it. The sata cable was only cheap but a first thought of call,the usb enclosure a mate has told me to get as itll work that way.
Can someone please tell me i have SOME hope lol
