  1. I have a 1 TB external hard drive which does not sound to good as the drive does not even read and the drive sounds like the drive is trying to spin.

    So I opened the case to find 2 500GB hard drive so I put them into my other external case and the hard drive spin up fine how ever it as no letters assigned to either of ther - I can format them however is there anyway I can get the data off of them?
