Hey guys I am using a Maxtor One Touch 3 given to my by my uncle. It is connected through USB2.0
When I plug it in, XP installs it and says "the device is ready to use".
But it dosnt show up on my computer. It dosn't even show up in disk mangement. I then install Acronis Disk Director (which detects it) but marks it as offline. if i try to change it to online, nothing happens. (actually the lights on the HD blink - meaning communication and goes back into offline mode). The lights on the HD return to a solid which mean "working properly".
Here is a screenshot:
Is there any way to extract the data off the drive? is the drive corrupt? sitll useable?
