Hi, I've got a Toshiba HDD2718 B ZE01 T Model MK2104MAV Hard Drive. I also have an interface connector to connect this HD into an IDE cable into my Desktop PC to enable me to load Win 95 / Win 98 OS onto the laptop HD. This connector joins 2.5 HD 44 pin to PC 40 pin IDE. My problem is that I cannot get the PC to recognize the 2.5 HD. Could someone please walk me through the process as everything I've tried has failed to initiate. I have used Win98 startup disc to load necessary info for FDISK and Format but all I get is message saying no disc present. I cannot be sure that the HD is powering on as I don't hear any noise indicating disc rotation. I am wondering if the interface connector is faulty as the HD when installed in a Compaq Contura 410 laptop works as far as flashing the screen with Windows 95 is starting then it shows C:/> and will not proceed any further hence my need to install the OS from CD on the desktop PC as the laptop does'nt have a CD drive. How can I test the connector via DVM? or any other method?. Neil.
