Hi all. I have been reading through the forum here at the (many) hard drive problems thread and thought this would be a good place to ask for some help. A while back while using my PC the power went out. When it came back on I was greeted with the message while booting Operating System not found. I couldn't get back onto the disk even though with a bit of messing around in the setup I could get it shown in the BIOS. All the connections were fine and there were no problems with the disk before the power outage (I was plugged into a surge protector if that makes any difference) Anyway I got a new hard drive and also got hold of a hard drive enclosure (IDE to match the drive) which does have it's own power source. When I plug the USB enclosure in with the disk inside I get the bubble saying that the USB device is found, Then Mass Storage Device found, Then Found WDC WD80 0EB-11DJF0 and finally your new hardware is installed and ready to use. All seemed good so far but then I go to My computer and there is no drive there. I go to device manager and it shows up under Disk Drives as WDC WD80 0EB-11DJF0 USB Device but If I go to disk management it doesn't show up there either, only my internal hard drive and my CD drive. All I want to get off it is some important data and then I dont mind if it never works again. I really should have backed it up before hand but stupidly didn't. If anyone has any suggestions or advice on how to get this working it would be very much appreciated. If it makes any difference the drive is 80GB (I only want about 4GB off it) Thanks for taking the time to read this and any help is appreciated. Thanks!
