USB harddrive disappeared
I just did a complete disk copy to backup the harddrive i use in my carputer. The image went fine and then i changed some of the drive letters on the backup harddrive that is always gonna be in my main computer.
After i changed the drive letters i still can't get the original drive to show up in windows. I'm trying to hookup the original via a IDE->USB interface adapter. I'm not positive whether i had it hooked up when i changed the drive letters or not. It's possible that changing the drive letters didn't have anything to do with it... but it worked 10 minutes before i changed the drive letters.
I have tried changing the drive letters back to what i think they used to be. Removing the backup harddrive and restarting with just the original and it still doesn't show up.
None of my harddrives are hidden. The disk doesn't show up in disk management (winxp). However, when i connect the harddrive (via usb) it detects the maxtor harddrive and mass storage device.
I have also tried hooking the harddrive up to a different computer via the usb connection and it doesn't detect them either.
What kind of diagnostic tools are there for such a problem?
Thanks in Advance,
