Ok, this is a long shot, i am sure you probably tried it......but I have had it happen...after fdisking, when you restart...it will usually say that the disk is not found, do you want to retry or something similar....if it says this, let it retry and it will find it. Long shot, but its all i can think of.Originally Posted by Powers
Might just wanna put it in a desktop with that adaptor in place of your cd rom so you dont have to slave it. Let XP or whatever you run format it with fat32 and then to be safe do a disk clean up. I have had this work for quite a few laptop drives that I have gotten.
