Yes, it's a slave drive. I have it hooked up as a USB Drive.

Yes, it's a slave drive. I have it hooked up as a USB Drive.

that is what i mean in my first post as how you were trying to access it ,anyway ,i would make sure the drives jumpers are set to slave and install it in the computer with the other dirve ,make sure the master drive is set right to ,some need to be set to master with a slave .
i find sometime usb devices can cause weird problems .
