Default What the heck is going on with my HD

Hard drive problems.

Ok I brought my WD 200 GB SATA hard drive to a freinds house to give him some music.

He has alienware PC so we turned it off, opened the side, plugged everything and everything goes smoothly.

I transfer all the music, and then I leave with my hard drive.

Well everytime its plugged into my computer, I cant boot.

I have a raptor with my OS on it and the 200 GB is for all my music.

When I un-plug it and dissconnect the SATA cable, Windows boots fine, But when I plug it in windows will not boot and It will restart.

any ideas why?


May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face, and may the winds of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars
