|Ill try and make this quick and to the point. |
I have two hitachi 4.3 gig laptop HD's, same model and make. One which works in the io, and one which doesnt; they both work in my tower system(duron 700). When the HD that doesnt work is hooked up to the io, it clicks over and over like its trying to read the disk, and the platters are spinning, i know this because it produces a certin amount of centri-force. When i hold the drive upside down on end, it works without fail,
The pict is how the drive has to stand for it to work, the two "T's" indicate the top left and right corner. infact, im typing with one hand, on my tower comp, and holding the drive for the io while it installs win 98. Any ideas as to why one would do this and the other doesnt, other than the fact it may be broken?? canttype any more.
