Thanks for the input guys!! I looked in the disk management and it was a no-go. The drive is also making a clicking sound when it is turned on. the heads are banging against the inside of the spindle
Here is a movie to show u what it is doing. The room was very clean. not 100% sterile, but I did it in a chem lab that needs TOP sanitation conditions.. The drive ifs for my friends up and coming business...
Hard drive banging inside look, mpeg file
It is 7mb and 20 sec long from my digi camera..
Please check it out and let me know what you think !!.
BTW, Bios doens't recognize it. It wouldn't spin up till I took the cover off and replaced it. Now it is running fast again.
Thank you so much for your help!
