Re: Busted Drive?
There could be a couple problems causing this. For one thing, did you install this drive yourself. If so, make sure that the connection between the drive and the soundcard/onboard sound is not broken in any way. The other thing that might cause a problem is this. Is it hooked up through IDE or SCSI? Very similar but not the same thing. If it is an SCSI Drive, then that opens a whole different area to troubleshoot.
And yes, it is possible that it might be fried, but, try troubleshooting it a little further.
