Hi,

i have a 500GB samsung SATA harddrive that is full of data. When plugged in it no longer shows up in My computer as a drive.

Under device manager the device shows as connected and i can also go to disk managment and see the connected drive and the partitions on the disk but all options are greyed out apart from the ability to delete the partitions which i obviously dont want to do as i will lose my data.

This is being accessed on a windows 7 machine and has been tried with multiple machines which all do exactly the same.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Phil

Hello,
Does the partitions have the drive letters in the disk management? Take a snapshot of disk management --> upload it in www.speedyshare.com and paste the download url here.
Good Luck
