Hi everyone I've got an older HDD recorder, a Panasonic DMR-EH60 - it's not a high-def recorder, and i've basically no use for it anymore. But i thought i could pull the HDD out of it, and get some use out of this drive. The drive itself is a 200GB Western Digital WD2000 EIDE drive, specific model number WD2000BB-14GUC0. I've tried it in 3 different computers now, and can't get any of them to detect the drive within the BIOS. I'm part-way through a CompTIA A+ course (with a view to carrying on with CCNA and then MCITP), and my tutor believes it's because it's probably been formatted in a non-standard, i.e not NTFS, kind of file system. He doesn't seem to think that there is any way to reformat the drive, but it just seems such a waste of what would otherwise be a decent 200GB drive, so i thought i'd sign up here and see what you guys thought about it I've tried it with an IDE cable, various jumper settings. I've also tried it with an EIDE-to-SATA converter via a SATA controller on the motherboard of my own home PC - no joy. There's 2 SATA controllers on this mobo, and both are fine, as both work fine with my boot drive. So i'm at a bit of a loss really - anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.
