Hello! And what about my case, please.....? For an unknown reason, suddenly yesterday my external Western Digital Caviar is not detected by Windows any more. I have tried using more PC's that I have at home but it's always the same. Then I tried attaching it as a primary slave and when the POST comes I see it there, with its model and capacity. But then when Windows (7) begins loading, it will remain for ages in that first stage when the four colorful parts of the Windows logo get together and start shining. It stays there and can't load further. I have extremely valuable information in that disk (250 GB, two partitions). Any ideas please? Thanks in advance.

HI kanamaser , you would probably get more results from starting your own thread rather than trying to post on someone else's. However in my experience quite often when an external hard drive has a problem the problem does not lie with the hard drive but with a failure of the external case in which it resides. Then I usually slave it to a desktop computer I have at home so I can tell for sure if it is the hard drive that has the problem or the external case.
