i can see the hdds in device manger and disk management but i can not explore them. i am on a win7 laptop but have had no issue reading my other four hdds ( 3 3.5 and 1 2.5) i can see them they just dont show up in my computer and wont let me explore them through disk management. im not sure but both have OSs on them. trying to recover old data as ive save all hdds from past computers that failed. every so often the blue light flash and i hear a click. i dont think the drives are dead because they spin up and i can see the size and partitions of the drives.
