I am troubleshooting the failure of the OS to recognize this drive. Have tried it on multiple computers, none will recognize the drive. Tried new USB cable as well.
I am concerned about the data on this drive, as the system it was connected to crashed, and re-install of Win 7 was necessary.
When these USB drives fail, is the failure usually in the USB interface electronics, or the drive itself?
If the interface, then shouldn’t I be able to cut open the case, remove the HDD, and connect it to the computer’s SATA port to recover the data?
Thanks for your help
