    hard drive not recognized - you are screwed


    After spending way too long reading the same solutions no one has fixed this problem.
    My conclusions are you have a usb problem that corrupts the driver.
    first external usb connected harddrive failed at 10 months
    second hard drive failed at 5 weeks
    3rd harddrive one week
    all were brand new
    all were different brands
    I would be a fool to plug in another hard external harddrive to my computer

    The obvious solution is buy another motherboard

    Hi truenorth, Welcome to SF.

    Firstly, I did not understand your issue.

    Second, Issue can be with SATA cables.

    Then don't be a fool and plug in another external harddrive.

    Are you just trolling or really asking for help?
    If you do need help, ask a question so folks here understand, and might be able to help you.
