I recently bought a new sata to usb, and it isn't showing up using that kit either, and I tryed all ports on my computer too...I also brought it to a computer sales tech? It didn't show up on the computer either, but using the same kit he was using, another hardrive did. He also said that the hardrive sounds fine, and it sounds like its reading and everything, so it might be that the circuit board randomly stopped working? He also said that if I could get another circuit board on it , it should work again...But then I googled this? And some people were saying this might not work because each hardrive has its own 'fingerprint.'
Dwarf: Have you considered replacing the enclosure?
Well, I bought a new kit if that counts? It didnt come with an enclosure, maybe switching to an enclosure might work..? I'm not sure.
Both the hardrive & circuit board look & sound fine though ( the same as I bought it? )...So I'm not sure what the problem is...or how to fix it...
