I believe that I understand what you’re saying, but I’m not sure. Will you please try to rephrase your question to be more clear and provide more information (e.g., brand of disk, operating system on computer, …). – Scott May 21 '13 at 23:59
Is the drive recognised on another PC? – Karan May 22 '13 at 0:17
