Hi everyone..! I got this laptop hard disk from my friends laptop, put it in an enclosure and connect it to my PC via USB but it is not showing on My Computer. It is shown on Device Manager as a disk drive "Toshiba MK2018GAP USB Device" but not on Disk Management. Also it is shown on the bottom right as a Mass Storage Device but no drive letter.. My OS is Windows XP. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanx..
