Default Hard Drive query

I have a hard drive that I took out of a previous pc and it is mounted in a 'carrier' and plugs into my pc with a USB connector. I have used the drive as a backup in the past.

I have plugged it in today and it all lights up OK but when I go into 'This PC' it only seems to appear briefly. I have had a look via Macrium and it doesn't appear there either. When it was briefly visible I tried to look at the properties and I got a message that said Windows could not access the drive.

Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you.

Have a look in disk management and see if it shows up there. Also check device manager..

I need help with both really, The drive that I cloned in Macrium looks as though it has been partitioned into three and I was convinced that I had amended it into just one partition.

And the thread re the hard drive is that I can't see it on the desktop, it seems to appear momentarily and thwen disappears again.

EDIT : OK folks, I have sorted this one. I simply took it apart and put it back together and it is all working again now. I think that it may have just been a loose connection.
