Windows 7: External eSata drive stopped being detected

External eSata drive stopped being detected

Hi,

I'm a bit kind of desperate now. I purchased a 2TB Western Digital Sata drive (WD20EARS) and an enclosure with USB2 and eSata interface (independent power supply). Everything was ok for almost 2 months till today it just suddenly stopped being detected at all.

I wasn't doing anything in particular when this happened. I remember I restarted my laptop around the time this happened (I do not remember if it happened before or after this). Any idea what could be wrong?

When I attach it with the eSata cable, nothing happens. With USB, I hear the beep that "something" was attached but then again nothing. Nothing at all in Device Managre or Storage Management.

Any ideas, please let me know... I'd appreciate it. Thank you.

So wait a sec sounds like you have a faulty enclosure. I mean if the Usb and esata both dont work then I highly doubt your hard drive already gave out
