Re: Busted Drives
1st of all i would look at both hhd's Ide connector pins, if one of those pins are bent, the ide cable will seem connected ok, but your computer won't recongnize it. it happened to me once.one of the jumper pins was bent and the hhd was not recognized by the bios.
2nd, i would check to see that your friends hhd, your trying to get files off, make sure the jumper is set to slave. remember that no computer can have two master's. one hhd must be master & the other slave.
and if the above doesn't work, check the IDE cable itself to make sure it's snug into the Mobo, it could be a faulty cable.
