Re: External Hard Drive Issues
A few things to try:
You can try a LInux LiveCD on the computer you're on. Boot off of the CD into a bootable Linux environment, plug the drive in, and see if its recognized there.
Second option: remove the drive from its enclosure, and hook it directly to a desktop computer internally and/or get a different external enclosure, and put the drive inside of that.
