Re: I did a bobo!
is one of those hard drives one of the ones you opened before?? if so DON'T OPEN YOUR HARD DRIVES!!! I guarantee it won't work again after you open it. And if you don't know enough not to open them, then I can't do anything for you, thats why they manufacture hard drives in a completely dust free environment and the people that work in there wear full body suits. the least little bit of dust that gets inside will ruin the drive. and don't tell me that you do it in a dust free environment, because no environment inside a persons house, or outside for that matter, is dust free. Although I have seen someone open a hard drive sucessfully and install a window in the case and put it back together, it's not recommended. maybe I'll tell you how he did it if you're good.[/rant]
if not....are you sure you have the jumper settings right? you sure you plugged in a power connector? I've seen people forget to do that before.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!
