OK, so I'm the only one around here with an Ebay account. My friends want some externals. Problem #1 "ships only to confirmed address" The seller doesn't understand that Marines are often away from their homes. I simply have them sent to my intelligent, yet computer illiterate wife, which leads, potentially, to problem 2. Problem #2 the wife puts four of them together. One is a laptop drive and 3 are 3.5's. The 2.5 is perfect, but none of the other three will even appear on her comp. I have had her change jumpers (set to slave rather than master), try different USB ports/cords, swap the hard drives between the cases to see if one common thing is causing this. From 2k miles away it seems she is doing everything right. Am I missing something? The drives spin as if they are reading, but can't be found. The OS is XP.
